(KCEN) -- In Spokane, Washington hundreds gathered at a vigil today in honor of a World War II veteran beaten to death by two teens.

People of all ages, from young kids to fellow veterans, were there to pay tribute to Delbert "Shorty" Belton.

The crowd sang God Bless the USA and Amazing Grace.

About a dozen people spoke at the vigil.

Family and friends described Belton as a kind, sweet and gentle man who would give you the shirt off his back.
