O'Brien Family Support

Our friends, Joe and Donna O'Brien, staples in the Point Judith fishing community for decades, lost their son Zach in a sudden and tragic death.

With Zach living in Utah, Joe & Donna are arranging for interstate travel to and from Utah as well as funeral and burial services in Rhode Island. The O'Brien family is not financially prepared to handle these inordinate expenses.

Additionally, and due to their incapacitating grief, it is unknown when return to work is expected.

Zach was loved by everyone with whom he came in contact and left a wonderful legacy. He will be missed by all.

Please consider a donation of gift to assist the family in their moment of need. If you're unable to assist monetarily, please keep the family in your thoughts.
