The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Dennis and Lorraine Carver died after their vehicle crashed into a metal gate outside their community in Riverside County, California, and burst into flames on October 16.
At the music festival, Dennis Carver jumped on top of his wife to shield her from bullets. They managed to run away from the shooting and were not injured.
Brooke Carver, the couple's 20-year-old daughter, says her parents had grown deeper in love in the weeks after the shooting. Her father even got her mother flowers just days after the shooting.
"Our beautiful, amazing, and strong parents were in a tragic and fatal car crash just down the street from my house," Brooke Carver wrote in an October 20 Facebook post. "Our parents couldn't have done more for us, they truly did make sure we had anything and everything we could ever want, including love which will last a lifetime."
She writes that her mother was full of life and always laughing and dancing.
"She was there for every school play, every football game, every cheer competition, every day for anything, she was there," she wrote.
Brooke describes her dad as the strongest man she's ever met.
"He made our lives what they are today, he was the hardest worker and was so passionate about making sure me and Madison would be taken care of," she wrote. "He worked himself so incredibly hard day in and out all for me and my sister."
She finished the Facebook post by addressing her parents, describing her parents as people who always taught them to move on from the bad things in life and be happy, and this situation wouldn't be any different.
"Thank you for giving us the blessed lives we live, and thank you for teaching us everything we need for the rest of our lives in 16 and 20 short years," Brooke wrote. "Everything was always a lesson with you Dad, and now I know why. Mum, you always made everything a party, and we couldn't be more grateful to have all those memories. We love you, and can't wait to see you again."
The Carvers had been together for 22 years.
