An Aliso Viejo, California, resident is among those killed in the attack on Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Victor Link, a 55-year-old originally from Shafter, California, was “the best dad any son could ever have,” Christian Link, who identified himself as Link’s son, wrote on Facebook.

Link was attending the festival with his fiance, Lynne Gonzales, and longtime friends, Rob and Lesley Wedlock, when he was shot and killed during the Jason Aldean concert on Sunday, according to a statement released by the family Thursday.

“Victor was a loving fiance, proud father, loyal son, protective brother, supportive uncle and kind friend. We wish to express our gratitude to all that have helped contribute to Victor’s extraordinary life. Whether you were a relative, friend, or neighbor, you we’re all a part of making his life so meaningful,” the statement said.

Link is survived by his fiance; his father, Lloyd; siblings Lisa, Vincent and Craig; and his son, Christian.

“I could type for hours saying how great of a man you were and how everyone loves you so so much,” Christian wrote in the post. “I’m so sorry. I just want to tell you how much I love you and I’m going to do all the things that we talked about but this time I’m actually going to do it!”
