In Memoriam…Hermano Manuel Gomez

April 25, 2020

On April 5, 2020, the Hermanos of Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. learned of the passing of Hermano Manuel Gomez (Spring 2010, Beta Zeta Chapter Founder at Johnson and Wales University) as a result of COVID-19. 

It goes without saying the loss of this young life at 28 years of age, during such an unprecedented time, has tremendously impacted his family, friends and our Hermandad.

Hermano Manny was a role model touching the hearts of all he met. Every Hermano having the pleasure of meeting and knowing Manny speaks of his impact, his commitment, his leadership.

Hermanos close to Manny stepped up to assist and provide support to his mother and family in the development of a GoFundMe page and coordination of funeral and burial arrangements. Funds raised surpassed their goal and will provide support and relief to his mother who has also been managing ongoing complicated health issues of her own.

Our Hermandad mourns the loss of our Hermano and sends our deepest condolences and prayers to his family, chapter brothers and friends. We also wish continued peace to his mother.

La Unidad Para Siempre, Manny. We will miss you, Hermano.

The Hermanos of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc.
