This fund has been set up for Nola, Zane and Duke.

In loving memory of Matt Fragas . .

Matt was 30 years old when he was taken from his family by a hit-and-run driver less than a quarter mile from his home. He left behind Nola, his high school sweetheart of 15 years and their two sons, Zane (8) and Duke (5).

Matt was also taken from his mother Trish and father Mark, as well as his brothers Kenny and Kristopher. Matt loved so many things, especially his family. Whether he was related to you by blood or otherwise, you were his family. He loved the ocean and would often be found near it with Nola, Zane and Duke either paddling, diving or fishing. Anything to do near the ocean, he was there.

There was never a spare moment for Matt, every minute was spent providing for Nola and the boys. If he wasn't with them, he was with his mom and dad; the oldest son and brother to Kenny and Kris. He was a role model who provided guidance, support and strength in the toughest of times. His love will never be replaced.

Matt was an active member of the United States Air Force Reserve and completed multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was a Federal Firefighter at Hickam Air Force Base.

Matt was known for his comical and multi-faceted personalities. He was/is loved by ALL who knew him. He was the life of the party, never ceasing to bring a smile to your face.

We do NOT want you to remember the way Matt's life was taken. But we ask that you remember him for the life he lived. His children are his remaining legacy, which is why this fundraiser was created.

The Fragas family will never be able to see his smile or hear his laugh, but the memories live on in Zane and Duke.

Matt Fragas .. GONE TOO SOON
