Funeral Expenses for Oscar Zanoni

Oscar Zanoni never met a dog he didn't like. Today he was killed by a tractor trailer while riding his bike. 

Metuchen Man killed by tractor trailer 

If you knew Oscar you knew the 3 wheeled bike he rode.  Or maybe you saw him dog walking,  a site to be seen, with his friendly sweet dogs and tangle of leashes. He loved to socialize and made friends easily.  He loved Metuchen.  Most importantly, he loved Wendy and his fur babies. 

He and Wendy both have health issues but chose to handle it with smiles and kindness for others. 

When Oscar was 9  he survived a brain aneurysm that left him with physical and neurological impairments. He went from a coma to a vegetative state to learn how to walk and eat and talk again.  Oscar felt truly blessed that he was alive and shared that with everyone.  Due to his condition, he never drove and biked everywhere.

I set up this fundraiser to help his wife Wendy pay for funeral, living and pet expenses.  They are a disability check family and she also has the dogs to care for.  As a community we can wrap loving arms around her at this difficult time with outreach and whatever financial support you can give. Everything matters.

All funds raised will go directly to WENDY

Please take a moment and watch this you tube video of Oscar talking about his life. Oscar was truly a very inspirational,  special man who shared his story and heart freely...

PLEASE SHARE  on your social media. Thank you for you generous donations and outreach.
