Amanda Sullins is Brett Blakney's girlfriend, she was with him when he passed away on Thursday night at Ozark Health.
"I went to the hospital with him and sat there with him and held his hand. Until he got so bad that I had to leave the room."
Sullins, along with other friends stood outside the Black Dog Grill, sharing stories of a man they knew and loved.
The grill was the perfect place to remember Blakney.
"He was the greatest man I ever met."
Sullins was also at the grill Thursday night.
She explains what happened.
"The guys were kind of bantering and Brett asked them to kind of just calm down. I turned to go inside of the bar, the next thing I hear is a crack and I turn around and realized it was Brett's head, hitting the concrete and he was laying there unconscious. And the guy took off down the alley way, and a lot of our patrons took off after him."
It's no surprise patrons would help him.
"Brett was just such an easy going guy. I can't imagine anyone having cross words with him."
David Bintliff, Blakney's neighbor and friend, was just about to do some work on Blakney's driveway because he didn't have a tractor.
But one thing he did have.
"He had more of an impact on more people than I have ever seen in my entire life. Ever. I never knew that one man could be loved by so many people."
"He was just amazing. He was."
Sullins, says a Memorial and Funeral are being planned for next week.
We asked about Blakney's parents, we are told they came down Thursday, but returned to Little Rock.
