Help the VanHise Family

Thank you all so very much. Your generosity has brought this fundraiser past the original goal, and past two additional goals. This campaign was kicked off Sunday morning, hence I am adjusting the goal.  Please continue to share. Our friends need your help. Thank you again.

Trevor passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday, January 23.  The VanHise family and friends are in shock. 

Your help is needed to assist with funeral expenses. Unfortunately, Trevor didn't have life insurance. This will help Denise, and his three children, James, Jenna and Jackson.

If you have a child who played a sport for Amity or Orange, they were likely coached by Trevor at some point. Trevor coached all of his son's sports teams from football to basketball to baseball. And if he wasn't coaching, he was on the sideline or in the bleachers cheering on his kids and yours.

Trevor and Denise own Carpet & Tile by the Mile-small business owners who never hesitated to give back to their community. 

Trevor was a giving and selfless person who loved his family more than anything. He took pride in his craft, and left for work early, and came home late. But every summer evening after work, he'd be outside with his family and friends laughing and enjoying life. And boy could he talk. Any topic. Any current event. Don't get started unless you had time for a great conversation.

Trevor was a wonderfully energetic and friendly neighbor. My kids and the VanHise kids grew up together. The loss is deep and will be felt by many for a very long time. Please help out the VanHise family.

I have to add this information so GoFundMe will allow the money to be withdrawn. My name is Denise D'Onofrio. I am from Orange, CT. I live nextdoor to the Van Hise family. Denise Van Hise is a wonderful friend. Her children are like my own. The funds will be used to cover funeral expenses and to help support their small business so that Denise can take time off to be with her children. When the money is withdrawn, it will be given directly to Denise Van Hise.
