Unfortunately my dad was taken from me. Nobody wants to see somebody die [.] Nobody wants to see the man that gave them life, the man that taught them everything to this day die. I wish I had just a couple more minutes with my dad to tell him how I felt,” Dynasia Molina, the daughter of Michael Rumberger, wrote on her GoFundMe page.

“… I’ll learn to live without your strong character, but I’ll never forget it. You’ll live on Dad. I have a piece of you in me. And while I’m still on this earth you are too. I am only wanting to help give my dad the proper burial. As a daddy’s girl I want to make sure I send him off the right way.”

As of 10 a.m. this morning, 22 donors have contributed $2,975 towards her $5,000 goal.

On Saturday evening, Bayonne police found a man dead inside the trunk of a Lincoln Town Car, with the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office later identifying the deceased as Rumberger, 34.

The investigation is ongoing and therefore authorities have not gotten into any specifics regarding the circumstances surrounding his death.
