Hector Vargas Memorial Fund

Hector Vargas Memorial Fund

by Darren Meenan November 22, 2017 0 Comments

Hector Vargas, II was laid to rest this past weekend in North Carolina. He is survived by his wife, Angie, and their two children Ethan (13) and Mia (10).

Hector tragically lost his life on the morning of November 16, 2017 in a car accident on his way to work. Hector loved three things: Jehovah (God), his family, and his New York Mets. Earlier this year, Hector and Angie celebrated 19 years of marriage. Hector was a loving husband who took care of his family. 

In 2014, Angie had brain surgery. Sadly, Angie's health issues persist, and she may need another brain surgery.

Hector cheered with us on many occasions, and a lot of The 7 Line Army members have been asking how they can help. We contacted Hector's family, friends, and co-workers to find out what we could do. The Hector Vargas Memorial Fund is now active, and I urge you to chip in. 

A few fans suggested we make special HV patches for our 2018 jerseys. We'll talk with the family, and with their blessing, have some made up. All proceeds would be donated to the fund.

With the holidays upon us, please find it in your heart to chip in. One less coffee, one less t-shirt, one less meaningless "thing" that won't matter to you in the long run. The Vargas family has a long road ahead, let's try to lighten the load.

Hector would have had your back. Let's have his.

RIP.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
