To keep the memory of Kane Buss alive, a memorial fund has been set up to place a tree and plaque at Destiny USA, where Buss was killed in a drunk driving accident last January, and at Oneida High School.

Extra funds raised will go towards the Kane Buss Football Scholarship handed out in his memory.

Buss was killed when his car was struck by an alleged drunk driver, on his way home from a date with Amanda Pawlikowski. A love he sacrificed his life for. Jennifer Peters, who called Kane her “adopted son” says “Kane’s last heroic act was to shield Amanda from the impact. Doctors said his actions saved her life.”

Leonard Glowacki is accused of running into their vehicle on Hiawatha Boulevard, near Destiny USA. He’s facing several felony charges, including vehicular manslaughter, vehicular assault and DWI.

Buss, who had dreams of being a police officer, was set to graduate college in May and enroll in the police academy. The Oneida City Police Department made him an honorary officer, presenting Kane's family with a badge, patches and a plaque that read: ‘Kane’s dedication in pursuing a career in law enforcement was evident by the efforts he put forth in school, the community, ride along with Oneida City Police and by the type of person he was. His desire to help and look out for others are traits that make a good police officer. His passing is a loss not only to his family and friends, but also the community he would have served.’
