Eddy Funeral/Family Expenses

37900124_155311803081373_r.jpegHello friends, we are All Star MMA in Union NJ and we are raising money for our dearly missed friend and teammate, Eddy Gonzalez, who passed very suddenly.   Eddy did not have life insurance, and his funeral expenses are exponential and what we raise will be a great help to his family.

He was a dedicated practitioner and mostly importantly, an amazing father to his only daughter Alexa.  He brought Alexa to our kids BJJ class, on time every week, and it was such a pleasure watching the two grow and learn jiu jitsu with us.  Eddy was always a polite, humbling presence, and it was always heartwarming watch him and Alexa together.  He would watch her train, and then she would wait patiently as he partook in the adult BJJ classes. 

Eddy is truly missed and we want to give back to Alexa and the Gonzalez family as much as we can.  Your donations will be accepted by Eddy's family to help with funeral expenses.  Any donations that exceed our goal will be saved for Alexa.

Thank you,
Team All Star Martial Arts

A message from Eddy's sister:

Eddy Gonzalez was an amazing Father, Son and Brother.  He dedicated himself to his 8 year old daughter Alexa.  He had such a great sense of humor and family values. He was a single dad who was not afraid to be silly for his daughter. As his sister who helped him with his Bait & Tackle store I would often see how he did the silliest things to make her happy. One one morning he came in from dropping her   with a band-aid on the sleeve of his jacket.  I said do you want me to stitch that? He said Alexa placed it there for my coats boo boo. It remains the in that same spot today.  Whatever made her happy was his goal.  He has respected the sport of jujitsu and his only regret is not starting when he was younger, which is why he was dedicated to taking Alexa and supporting her participation. All Star Bjj has been a wonderful place. The coaches and fellow classmates have been a supportive extension of our small family. As it was just us 3. At age 44 he had overcome so many obstacles it was too soon and so unexpected.
