Erick Saum funeral fund

On the morning of August 17, 2017 our beloved Erick was riding his motorcycle to attend his third day of school at Universal Technical Institute where he had begun to attend courses for Automotive Technology. As many of you already know, Erick had been given a second chance after he had a very serious accident in August of 2015. He overcame many obstacles and didn't allow any of his injuries to prevent him from pursuing his dreams. Tragically, as he was headed to school for a quiz he had been studying for, he struck a vehicle that pulled out in front of him. Although he suffered several serious injuries initially, the medical team was able to stabilize him and the prognosis seemed good. That combined with the fact that Erick had fought through more serious injuries a couple years back made everything seem all the more hopeful. Unfortunately, after almost a week of Erick battling the odds once again, things turned for the worse. Although we know Erick had never given up on anything in his short life, his body could only take so much. He passed away August 27, 2017 at approximately 0349 in the morning.

We have never been the type to ask for anything and we never imagined we'd have to be making preparations for Erick's funeral, especially seeing that he was so young. However, in this time of difficulty we ask for any help to offset the costs so that Erick can have the proper burial that he deserves.

Thank you,
-The Saum Family
