Gabriel Bochnia Memorial Fund

Bring Gabriel home and help his 3 young children

Gabriel was a beloved son, brother, husband and uncle and a devoted father of 3 little children.  He was known for his big heart, always helping those in need.  On Wednesday October 4th he was returning to his home in Corozal, Belize, with his wife and 3 children when he was shot.  His family was witness to the horrific event. He later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.  His family and friends are completely devastated by his loss.  

Gabriel is a Canadian citizen and he moved to Belize several years ago for work.  As owner of a construction company he employed many staff and helped with the community in Corozal. He was an active member of the city's basketball team and was loved by all the people whose lives he touched.  As the sole provider for his family, it is hoped that this will help support his children and family as they try to cope with his loss and help with funeral costs and the costs of bringing him home to Canada.

"Gabriel, you have been an angel on earth and now you are our angel in Heaven. Rest in peace my baby brother." - Kate Bochnia, his beloved sister.
