IPSWICH (CBS) – The town of Ipswich gathered Monday night to remember Tony Woo, who was found murdered in his restaurant last week.

The vigil was held at the intersection of Route 1A and Market Street to show support for Woo who was a well-liked member of the community.

People remembered Woo for his generosity.

“Whatever people needed, Tony was able to provide to them,” said one man at the vigil.

A woman there said Tony gave her a car when she needed one.

“He actually had an old Volv0 that belonged to his wife that sat out back for two years,” explains the woman. He gave her the car for free.

Woo’s body was found at his Chinese restaurant, the Majestic Dragon, last Tuesday. So far, little has been released about the ongoing investigation of his death.

A law enforcement tells WBZ-TV that Woo was brutalized.

Woo had owned the restaurant for more than two decades.
