Vincent Jay Carabeo
June 3, 1990 - September 13, 2018
...but a legacy to last forever
Hello ALL! On behalf of Vincent's family and closest friends, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the outpouring of love and support during this difficult time.
EVERYONE — his family, friends, classmates, coworkers, including people he's met online, coffee shops and while traveling abroad —has truly shown us what an impact Vince has made in this world and how honored we all are to have had him in our life even for a brief moment. While we are extremely saddened by his recent passing, we have come together to celebrate his amazing and awe-inspiring life. Though only 28 short years, Vince showed us that it is possible to live a bountiful life without boundaries and facing adversities with strength and bravery.
We come together now to raise money to celebrate our dear friend. Monies raised will be divided into the following:
1) a small portion for his celebration of life event,
2) a portion to his mother, Veronica, and sister, Erika who gave their time to care for Vincent 24/7 until his passing, and
3) remaining monies will be donated to a tribute/fund toward Death With Dignity or possibly Cancer research.
His Celebration of Life will take place in Seattle, Washington on October 6, 2018. You will need to contact us for further details.
OUR SINCERE GRATITUDE:
Thank you for being a light in Vincent's life and for pushing him to fight. Vince surely did not want to say that he "lost his battle with cancer" or that he "gave up" because he didn't; he wanted everyone to know that he fought to live! His positivity and transparency through this rollercoaster journey has been inspiring and I don't think we'll ever meet anyone who wanted to LIVE as much as Vince did. Please continue to pray for him and his family and may you also be inspired by the legacy he has left behind.
