John Altobelli was a former coach at the University of Houston. Monday night in Houston, City Hall turned red in honor of John, Keri and Alyssa.
The three perished when the helicopter they were on crashed in Calabasas just over two weeks ago. Nine people, including Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, were killed.
"The amount of love and support we've received these past few weeks has been truly amazing," said J.J. Altobelli, the son of John and Keri and brother of Alyssa.

John Altobelli was the baseball coach at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa for 27 years, leading the team to four state titles.
"Loyalty, trust, respect, work ethic and love," said Clarke Smith, a friend of John. "Powerful words, but Alto backed them up every day."
His daughter, Alyssa, was a basketball teammate of Gianna Bryant.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to help two Altobelli children who were not involved in the crash. More than $450,000 have been raised from two GoFundMe campaigns.
On Friday, the National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report and found no evidence of an engine failure in the helicopter crash. No cause was listed in the report.
Also killed in the crash were pilot Ara Zobayan and Bryant's friends Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton.
