More than $4,000 had been raised for him on a GoFundMe as of Wednesday afternoon.

A funeral service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at the  Ippolito-Stellato Funeral Home in Lyndhurst. Interment to follow Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington.

Frank was the beloved son of Frank W. Schrimp II and his fiancé Sue Colamedici-McLaren, and Angela Territola (nee Leccese) and her late husband Anthony.

Loving partner of Karl Tan; cherished grandson of Joan Schrimp and the late Frank Schrimp Sr. and Catherine Leccese; dear brother of Lisette Schrimp-Martens; step brother of Michael, Christine and Toniann Territola and Andrew and Amanda McLaren.
