Bobby Chizmazia of Bridgeport and formerly Fairfield died on June 24.
The 24-year-old was remembered fondly by those who knew him -- and those who didn't.
Many people left condolences for the family on a GoFundMe for Chizmazia's burial, which had raised more than $3,000 as of Wednesday evening.
"Didn't know Bobby as well as I should have, but every-time I saw him so was kind and full of energy," said Griffin Cummings.
"My heart and thoughts go out to Bobby and his family."
"Bobby, you were a beautiful star on Earth and definitely in your parent's eyes," Lyn Townsend added.
"I know your wonderful Mom, Ann, is welcoming you with loving, open arms right now. I knew you as a baby and always marveled at how much you looked like your Mom. You will be missed and mourned beyond comprehension. Please, rest in peace now."
Calling hours will be from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Lesko and Polke Funeral Home on Friday, June 29. A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for 10 a.m. at Holy Family Church on Saturday, June 30.
Interment will follow at Lawncroft Cemetery in Fairfield.
