NOW: “This year has challenged us:“ Family remembers Ziggy on the one year anniversary of his death

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A family is trying to stay strong after the man they call their "superhero" was killed in a senseless act of violence.

"This year has challenged us in ways we never imagined we would be challenged."

Greg "Ziggy" Zyszkiewicz was killed one year ago today.

Zyszkiewicz was a city worker in Milwaukee. He was doing a home inspection when he was shot in his personal car near 24th and Cherry.

His three children tell us they're leaning on each other for support on this one year anniversary of his death.

"There's no easy way to prepare yourself for it. This day seems to cement that it's real. We didn't know on March 21st, 2017 that we were going to lose our dad. I'm glad we're getting through this today, but you're right. I don't know when it gets easier," the family said.

Three people are facing charges in Ziggy's murder.

Police say they were planning to carjack him.

The Packing House will host a fundraiser in honor of Ziggy. The restaurant will donate one $1 for each fish fry sold. The restaurant will also collect donations from customers. 

Last year, The Packing House raised more than $3,500 for Ziggy's family. This year's fundraiser will benefit the Fisher HOuse of Wisconsin.
