North Bergen Police Sergeant Alexander Vazquez, the dedicated father of four children, passed away on Oct. 23, 2017. His brothers and sisters in the NBPD and PBA Local 18 have launched a GoFundMe page to establish a scholarship fund for Kayla, age 11; Gabriel, age 4; Logan, age 2; and Alex, age 1.
In order to ensure that the children succeed as best they can despite the void left by the loss of their father, all proceeds collected will be distributed to four scholarship accounts in their names.
Sgt. Vazquez earned the respect of the officers under his command by leading through example, treating them as friends rather than subordinates. His smile, gentle demeanor, and easygoing nature made friends wherever he went. He was adored equally by his peers as well as those that met him through the day-to-day grind of policing.
When he passed, the men and women of the NBPD lost a mentor, a friend, and a leader. The GoFundMe account was established so that Sgt. Vazquez’s children will know the continued love and support of their friends and family.
