On February 27th, 2016, Westconn student Fabian F. Amadeo-Aponte entered into rest. Born on February 23rd, 1991, he was a lifelong resident of West Hartford, CT. Fabian graduated from Hall High School and was an avid soccer lover. According to the words of family, friends, and loved ones on a memorial page, he was an exceptionally kind young man who valued family and had a laugh that was “infectious, beautiful, and genuine”. Along with the game of soccer, Fabian loved playing video games, snowboarding, and golfing.
