David James Ruiz Memorial

My father David Ruiz passed away after an extended time in the hospital in the ICU following a motorcycle accident involving a semi. The company we believe responsible for the accident has not reached out to us at this time, and we are looking to raise money for his funeral costs.

David did not have a large estate or accidental life insurance, and the life insurance he did have may not be able to pay out due to the time that the policy was in force.

Any amount can help. He is survived by myself, his mother and father, and his daughter Athena Ruiz, who is 9. His father is not contributing to these costs so the financial burden between me and my grandmother is costly.
