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.
