Help Cover Chinito’s Funeral Expenses

Utai Malayavech, known to most in the community as Chinito, has recently passed away from cancer.

As as many have described him and had the opportunity to experience, first hand, Chinito was a person with a big heart that was more than just an ice cream man. He GAVE ice cream to low income kids in the community, telling them that they could pay him later, knowing that many could not repay him. He brought so much happiness to everyone.

His daughter, Oct Malayavech, said,

Thank you for your support.  My dad is happy he have met the amazing people that he came across. His last wish was to go back to sell icecream again because that job and the people meant alot to him and I know he meant alot to you too. Dont worry you guys are a part of our family.”

The money raised will go directly to his family so that they can cover funeral costs.
