An online campaign dedicated to raising money for the family of a recently deceased Bayside man has, so far, raised $1,175.
Bayside's Jamie Davis created a GoFundMe page titled "Alan Davis Memorial Fund," with the goal of raising a total $6,000. So far, 10 people have donated to the fund.
The page reads:
This page has been created by the friends and family of Jamie and Aimee Davis in support of the sudden death of their awesome dad, Al Davis. Al was an amazing human being who will truly be missed by many.
In support of the Davis family, we are asking that in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to this fund for funeral arrangements. We also ask that you keep Jamie and Aimee in your prayers.
