Miguel Haro - a construction worker killed during a robbery in Chicago, Illinois

Miguel Haro
Miguel Haro, age 44, of Cicero, Illinois, died on December 21, 2014, at a hospital in Chicago, Illinois.

He and another man were doing rehab construction work at a residence in Englewood. They had just gotten paid. At about 5:40 p.m., two armed men approached Miguel and his coworker and ordered them to kneel. The robbers took the money and cellphone of the coworker and struck him with a gun.

Miguel was reluctant to hand over his wallet and tried to flee the scene and as a result he was shot. He was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

If you have any information about this crime, you are urged to contact Chicago Crimestoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-535-STOP.

The Chicago Firefighters Union stepped up to the plate and solicited donations from City firefighters who generously contributed to a number of gifts for the Haro family and the kids.

We put this question to the thieves who killed Miguel: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

Miguel had emigrated from Mexico and had been in the Chicago area for over 20
Mary, pray for Miguel and
for those who have
lost him

Miguel's loved ones are devastated over his senseless and tragic death. Family members said that Miguel was doing extra work to earn money to buy Christmas presents. They describe him as a good person who never harmed anyone. He was well-liked, generous, hard-working and honest. He lived a simple life. He did the best he could to support his family and to send some money back to his mother and father in Mexico.

Miguel is survived by many loving friends and family members including his wife, Alejandra; and his two daughters, ages 10 and 4. He will be forever mourned.

Pray for justice for Miguel.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Miguel is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
