MIAMISBURG — The Dayton Christian Schools community came together tonight to pray together following the death of a sophomore in a four-vehicle wreck today on his way to school.
Tommy Williamitis, 16, of Oregonia was on the wrestling team and he played in the band.
“I think it’s a lot of shock today and it’s a lot of, just, we’re not really sure how to handle it yet,” said Chris Malmstrom, Dayton Christian School’s spiritual life director.

Many students who reached out to Malmstrom during the day had similar stories to share about Williamitis, who would dress up as a banana during home basketball games.
“Super funny, unique sense of humor … he will be greatly missed I know by a lot of students and faculty,” Malmstrom said.
Williamitis was killed in a four-vehicle crash around 7:40 a.m. on Ohio 48 in Clearcreek Twp.
Understanding why this happened is difficult to comprehend.
“You don’t have really good words when things like this happen. It’s just really hard,” he said.
Which is why for the crowd tonight, they turned to a familiar source of comfort.
“We’ve just been trying to keep our foundation on scripture on the word of God.”

WEST CHESTER TWP. — The closing of the Milano’s restaurant in West Chester Twp. marked the third eatery to shut down in the building near the corner of Tylersville and Cox roads.
The Dayton-based restaurant chain announced Thursday that it had closed its location at at 7701 Voice of America Park Drive “effective immediately.”
“It is with heavy hearts that we share this news and we so appreciate the West Chester community for all of the support they’ve shown us,” Milano’s Pizza, Subs & Taps wrote via social media. “We are making every effort to relocate our current employees to other Milano’s locations.”
Milano’s opened its West Chester Twp. location in January 2014, replacing Marlin & Ray’s.
Marlin & Ray’s, a steak and seafood restaurant, served its last meal in January 2013 at the location, just one month shy of its one-year anniversary.
The restaurant was one of 13 locations closed by its owner, Ruby Tuesday Inc.
Prior to Marlin & Ray’s, the building housed a Ruby Tuesday restaurant.
“The opportunity arose to sell this property which includes both the building and the land,” Milano’s said in a statement. “We made this decision carefully and determined that the sale fit our future plan and the new owner would be a great addition to the area.”
Milano’s said the future restaurant tenant would be disclosed at a later date.
