Karmazin leaves behind a wife and three children.

His brother told Channel 8 that he is still in shock. 

“We hope in Christ that everything will work out,” Garrett Karmazin said. “We’ll have a funeral on Saturday, and hopefully that will help some.”

He said he can best describe his brother as a hard-working father. 

“He was just a natural father,” he said. “And all of kids just took to him like a magnet.”

Karmazin said he is worried about his brother’s wife and children, as he was a provider for the family. 

“He was, of course, a 50% provider for his family, if not more,” Karmazin said. “The actual bills and food and money are quite a thing. A lot has been swept out from underneath their legs.” 

The family has a GoFundMe page where people can donate to help with funeral and other expenses. 

Channel 8 reached out to Gonzalez’s family but has not heard back from them.
