Thomas Shelby 's Family Fund

Thomas was a very compassionate and giving man. He was a hard-working Father, loving Husband, wonderful Son, awesome Brother, fun Uncle, and terrific Friend.
On July 22, 2017, Thomas participated in the Long Island Rugged Maniac with his family when his life was tragically taken. He was 49 years old.
His daughter, Gillian, is set to start college at the University of Rhode Island. His son, Jared, is in high school.
The unexpected funeral expenses are now difficult to pay.
We are asking for donations of any amount to help defray these costs. This would be one less heavy burden on his wife, Lisa.
The funeral is on Thursday, July 27th. Donations will be accepted by Lisa. 
We understand that requesting donations is uncomfortable, but there is a necessity to help the family in its time of need.
