Zachary J Fazekas was taken from us too soon at 19 years old on July 14, 2018.  He is remembered by his family, friends, hockey family, firehouse and his father's union friends.  We are raising funds to help the family in this difficult time with the unforeseen expenses of losing a loved one unexpectedly at such a young age and to start a memorial fund in Zach's honor.  Thank you for your contribution!

Yesterday, Zachary was laid to rest at the All Faith Cemetery. The New Hyde Park Fire Department did an incredible service to the Fazekas family with all the fire trucks suspending American flags from their ladders along the route of the funeral procession. Thank you also to the motorcycle club members for aiding traffic control as the incredibly long procession of vehicles made their way from the Notre Dame Church, past Zachary's home, past the New Hyde Park Firehouse with Zach's firefighting gear on display.

It was a beautiful, sunny day...the kind of day Zach loved to be outside. During the moving prayers by the firehouse chaplin a monarch butterfly fluttered past and landed on the NY Rangers floral display at Zach's graveside. It stayed just a few moments, just long enough for us to notice, then fluttered away. It makes one wonder...

The attendees were invited back to the NHP firehouse for food, refreshments and the opportunity to share our stories about our fondest memories of Zach which were entertaining and plentiful.

We will continue our support for Zach's family and help them find ways to ensure Zach will always be remembered. Thank you to all our contributors.
