In an effort to help with funeral expenses and to support his wife and three children, Kyle's co-workers in the Water Workers Local 99 Union (in New Jersey American Water’s South Operations) have established a GoFundMe in an effort to raise $150,000.

So, far more than $102,000 has been donated in honor of a man whose life was cut tragically short and will never get to see his children grow up.
