Thomas Labetti, who is being remembered as "One of the funniest kids in West Islip," will be laid to rest on Monday, three weeks after he was struck by an SUV while riding his bicycle on Udall Road.
Labetti's wake will take place at Chapey & Sons Funeral Home in West Islip on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.; and Sunday Sept. 30 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
His funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Our Lady of Lourdes in West Islip.
The 15-year-old was riding southbound on Udall Road, near Pine Avenue, when he was struck by a 2006 Chevy Tahoe that was also headed southbound on September 11. He died from his injuries on September 27.
The driver of the Tahoe has not been charged in the accident.
A Facebook tribute page has been established for Labetti, with hundreds of friends, neighbors and community members posting messages of remembrance for the teen.
A petition has been created urging officials to contruct a traffic light and crosswalk on Udall Road to prevent another tragedy from occurring.
In lieu of flowers, the Labetti family is requesting those interested to wait to donate to a memorial fund to be set up in Thomas' honor.
