Vongell’s Story

Site created on January 8, 2019

Welcome to the CaringBridge website for Vongell Lugo. We have set this up as the central hub of information for friends and family to keep up to date with everything going on with the memorial, wake and funeral.  


We appreciate everyone's support, and welcome message of remembrance, as well as words of hope and encouragement for the family. If you are looking to contribute funds to the family, please see the link to the gofundme page listed under, “ways to help.” - Do NOT click on "tributes" link (unless you intentionally want to fund the CaringBridge site for others). 


Vongell was a beloved son, brother, uncle, friend, and coworker.  He was a kind soul, the center of the party, and a beacon of light that made an impact on everyone he came into contact with. His life was taken far too soon by a senseless and disturbing act of violence. This is a tragedy, and  everyone in his life is heartbroken.  Please feel free to leave comments, and any pictures you may have of Vongell. These will be cherished by his family. Below, you will find information regarding the upcoming services.
