HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A local restaurant will be giving part of its revenue to Officer Billy Clardy III's Memorial Fund.

From 11 a.m-9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 18, Farm Burger will be donating 15% of the day's revenue to Clardy's Memorial Fund.

Clardy, a 14-year veteran of Huntsville Police, was shot Dec. 6 during a STAC operation in Huntsville, dying from his injuries later that night.

Before joining Huntsville Police, Clardy served in the U.S. Army, later joining the Fayetteville, Tennessee Police Department and Limestone County Sheriff's Office.

Clardy is survived by his wife and five children.

"With having 5 children I know that times can be tough," said Farm Burger general manager Tara Ledwell. "We wanted to be able to ease some of that financial burden for them, let them know that people out here do care, that we all joined as a community to do this for them."

In the Facebook event, Farm Burger said, "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Clardy family during these difficult times. We are truly grateful for Agent Clardy's service and mourn his ultimate sacrifice."
