It's with a heavy heart that we sadly announce the passing of Paul Zito III on Friday June 22nd. We are devastated and will miss him dearly. 

If you would like to help us bring Paulie home to New Jersey and lay him to rest, please submit your contributions through this page. Any and all donations are valued. THANK YOU all for your love and support. 

The donated funds will be used for the following:

- Transportation of body from Australia to the United States
- Preparation of body in Australia
- Burial plot, opening (the plot) fees, and headstone
- Wake and funeral services in the United States
- Repast 
- If funds remain they will go to Paulie's childrens education and mental health charities

Funds generated will go to the Zito family to pay direct to the above services.

Funeral arrangement details to follow.
