The recent passing of Hubie Perez, a youth sports leader in both Levittown and Wantagh, has sparked an online fundraiser to help aid his family in their time of need.
Perez of Levittown, a retired New York City Police Department sergeant, was involved with the Levittown Seaford Wantagh Athletic Association flag football , MacArthur High School wrestling, Levittown North Baseball, St. Bernards R.C. Church basketball, the Levittown Soccer Club and Levittown Northstars Travel baseball. He died of a heart attack at age 47 in early October and left behind his wife Debbie and sons Christopher, Justin and Brian.
Levittown resident Elizabeth Pappas has started an online fundraiser for Perez’s family to help pay with his children’s college fund. The goal is to raise $20,000 and as of Oct. 11, $4,772 had been donated. To make a donation toward the cause, click here.
