HARLEY Shirley’s last post on Instagram was a video where he smiles and dances in the car with a woman who appears to be his mother, captioned ‘my rock.’

The 21-year-old son of Lizard Lick Towing reality TV star Ronnie Shirley was shot and killed on Thursday at a gas station after attending a memorial balloon release, according to the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office.

As comments from mourning friends and fans roll in under Harley’s posts, the family is grieving as well on social media — and in church.

On Sunday morning, Ronnie posted an Instagram picture of the crowd at his home church’s service with a caption saying that Harley, who went by Alex, could maybe “feel the moment.”

The loving father said that Alex was one of the “funniest and tender-hearted” people he’s ever known and went on to say: “In your passing you’re still making a [difference] making people smile and giving them a chance to come home – for eternity- the rest is up to them.”

The tribute comes after Ronnie posted a video on Saturday where he tearfully talked about how his son was shot by a “coward.”

This sentiment about Alex’s killer was mirrored in a heartbreaking post by his sister Lexy Shirley on Facebook where she shared the details of the upcoming funeral arrangements.

“I can’t believe that a cowardly excuse of a human stole you from us,” Lexy’s post said. “I can’t even truly put into words how I feel; my heart is shattered, and I need one of your hugs now more than ever.”

Ron also made a post on his Facebook page stating: “He’s at peace now – waiting on the rest of us to arrive at those gates- we will be there soon Big Shur – and will always cherish the times we had while you were with us son.”

Harley Shirley’s uncle, Jason Shirley, spoke to WRAL News on Friday and stated that he was offering a $25,000 reward for information regarding Harley’s death.

The shooting is still under investigation.
