Family said Davoli was a new father. His girlfriend gave birth to their son Santo a few weeks ago.

“Parents shouldn’t have to go through this. It is not normal. No one wants to bury their child," his father said.

Davoli's family is trying to raise enough money to cover 3 months of expenses for Davoli's girlfriend and baby.

His funeral will be held on Thursday in Jacksonville, family said on a GoFundMe page.
