OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining community has reached into its collective heart to provide aid and comfort for the family of man who died unexpectedly in early February.

David Caputo worked in the village's Department of Public Works for 18 years before dying on Feb. 9, according to a gofundme page set up for his family. He was 52.

"David was a proud member of the Village of Ossining Community," says the page, later adding, "He leaves behind his wife, 6-year-old son and three step children."

By early Wednesday, 70 people had contributed to the Caputo family, which was said to be facing a significant financial burden.

Donations -- some as low as $15 and others as high as $300 -- totaled $7,550 on Wednesday. Organizers are hoping to collect $25,000.

In a post Tuesday on the fundraising page, Dawn Caputo, David Caputo's sister, expressed gratitude for those who have stepped in to help.

"Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to The Caputo Fund," she said. "The family appreciates the support and assistance at this time.
