A memorial was held after his passing, and the residents of Juneau made a special plaque with Romeo’s likeness.
This was done out of sheer respect for Romeo, after he lost his life in such a tragic manner. The residents of the town wanted any tourist or person visiting the area to know just how much he meant to that community over the six years that he spent living there.
It was clear that the plaque could not replace Romeo in the hearts of these people, but it made them feel better knowing that their friend would never be forgotten, despite what that person did to him. His depiction on the plaque was absolutely breathtaking to anyone who saw it.
