The Story

For those who were lucky to know him, Alan Zapata was a loving anchor for his family and friends. He was a generous heart, eager to be of help to anyone he cared for and filled with a kindness that came out in big and small ways, and always there when you needed him. In his professional life, he was the man to call when everything went wrong, the fixer and the expert. But above all of this, he was first and foremost the devoted husband of Rebecca Capua, a love that began twenty years ago, and which just two weeks before his passing culminated in the birth of their son Lionel. Alan lived with cancer for ten years, and until the very end approached his illness with strength, bravery, and a focus on living the life he loved. This fund is intended for those who wish to celebrate the beautiful life that Alan created, Lionel Carlos Zapata.

Yesterday, February 18th, would have been Alan's 41st birthday. This picture, taken last year at Rebecca's surprise 40th dinner party for him, is a fitting memory of his sweetness and his joy. He loved his family, he loved his friends, he loved good food, he loved his passions, and he loved his life with his wife. Thank you to you all of you for helping us remember how much he was loved as well. Your support has truly been stunning.
