A barbecue benefit will be held Friday for 26-year-old Sonny Lemos, who died after crashing his vehicle into a home just before midnight Sunday on Horne Road.

Lemos had an appointment Monday in hopes of attending classes at the Del Mar College's transportation department to work toward getting a commercial drivers license. He was a graduate of Moody High School and leaves behind two brothers and two sisters.

Plates will be sold for $7 in order to help Lemos' family cover funeral expenses. It will be held 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday at 526 South Staples Street.
