Matthew Rezsnyak Memorial Fund

On Friday October 10, 2014 Elissa Battaglia and Brian Rezsnyak recieved a phone call no parent ever wants to recieve. Matthew Rezsnyak their 14 year old son had died after falling 200 feet into a gorge at Letchworth State park. Matthew was at the park hiking with a good friend and his friend's father.

Matthew was a ninth grader at Penfield High School. He would go above and beyond to make sure his family and friends were happy.

Elissa and Brian would like to give Matthew a fitting memeriol service. Any donations above and beyond the cost of the funeral will be donated in Matthew's name to a charity that helps children who have been victims of bullying.

Thank you in advance for your kindess and generosity. The family and friends of Elissa Battaglia, Brian & Christine Rezsnyak, Richard Battaglia
