It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share, and gradually learn how life is now different without our devoted friend, co-worker, husband, father, fellow firefighter, Chris Acs who passed away unexpectedly on July 11, 2022. Taken way too soon from us just days after his 47th Birthday, his kind-hearted nature, quiet smile and ability to tinker with and fix anything will be deeply missed.
Having grown up in Helmetta and as current Fire Chief of the Helmetta volunteer fire department, he leaves behind a community mourning his loss, and enormous shoes to fill.
He also leaves behind a beautiful young family, his wife Laura, daughter Sophia (15), son Ethan (11), and loyal pup Stella, his Father, Mother, Brothers, and many friends and family.
Chris was very giving of his time and talents and would often help friends and family without the need for thanks or acknowledgment. Now it’s time to call upon his village – of friends, family, colleagues, and firefighters to help support his family.
Friends and family of Chris Acs are organizing this go-fund-me campaign to benefit his children. Sophia and Ethan are in high and middle school, respectively, and we want to support them and step up the way he would for his friends in need. All funds donated here will be directed to Chris’s wife Laura. As a close family friend, this site has been set up with the blessing of the Acs family. Please share this so we can honor Chris and support his family in their time of need. It takes a village…
