NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville restaurant honored a murder victim Sunday, on the one year anniversary of his death.

Retired Tennessee State University employee, 71-year-old Ed Wisdom Jr., was shot and killed on the front porch of his Moorewood Drive home in north Nashville on October 28, 2011.

To mark the day, Swett's Diner in Nashville hung a plaque above the booth Wisdom often sat at.

"Definitely he meant so much to me," his son, Ed Wisdom III, told Nashville's News 2 of his father.  "He meant so much to my mother and the entire family but to know that the community and the surrounding neighborhoods care really means something to me."

So far no arrests have been made in Wisdom's death, and family members are calling on the community to bring those responsible to justice.

"The thing that we need most is the willingness of those individuals to step forth in terms of a written statement, in terms of a court testimony," Wisdom III said.

Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call Metro police or the family at 615-973-1251.
