Joseph Tutaj passed away on the night of February 19, 2013 while on a trip to California with his Seaford High School Marching Band. Joe was a bright and talented young man who was taken from us way too soon.
Joe's family is very appreciative of all the love and support they are receiving from their community and friends during this very difficult time. As some may know, this is the latest of several tragedies to hit them within the past 6 months. They have been out of their home since Super Storm Sandy. And, Joe's father has been battling cancer.
We have established this memorial fund with the proceeds going directly to the family to help with medical and burial expenses. Anything beyond that will be used to get their lives back to some sense of normalcy.
The family grieves deeply for the loss of their son but takes comfort in knowing how many lives Joe touched in his short 15 years.
Thank you for your donation.
Thanks for all your generosity. With all of the outpouring from people beyond this site which covered the medical and burial expenses, we used the funds raised here to set up a 529 educational fund for Joseph's younger sister, Emily. This way there is one less thing for the family to worry about.
