Father of 4 Dies in Tragic Accident

Thank you for visiting this GoFundMe page and for considering a donation to a young family that recently lost their father and partner.

This last Tuesday December 5th Allen Bates was killed suddenly and tragically in a collision.  He left behind a loving partner Annie Zambito and four children. Annie,  Emily, Lexi, Junior and Lily will not only have to face the heart-wrenching loss of saying goodbye to their father, but planning a memorial and also the great financial burden of funeral expenses.

Allen was a hard-working provider for his family and this sudden loss will be a great challenge to Annie and the children in the immediate days to come.      

Like many, this young family was not prepared financially for the cost of saying goodbye to their father and partner at such a young age.

For anyone that knows Annie she is one of the kindest, self-less people there are. Truly puts others before herself. She is genuine, loyal, caring and generous. Her optimism, infectious smile and humble attitude can light up any day. Let's band together to help her.  

Considering the circumstances, the need for donations is urgent. Any donation amount will help, no donation is too small.   Whether you are able to donate or not please consider taking the time to read and share this message.  

--Thank you
