Greenburgh Hit and Run Victim’s Funeral Is Scheduled for Wednesday

We are part of The Trust Project

The Greenburgh Police Department is currently investigating a suspected hit and run incident resulting in the death of 23-year-old Darryl Chung who was walking home from his night job when he was fatally stuck. His body was found on a front lawn and near the road around 6 a.m. last Tuesday morning. Darryl lived with his mother and assisted with paying the rent for their small apartment.

Having been notified of the economic plight of this grieving parent by a neighbor of the family, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner reached out to the First Community Church of the Nazarene, White Plains, to see what could be done in setting up a fund to assist the mother with the expense for the burial.

Rev. Leroy Richards of the First Community Church of the Nazarene in collaboration with Rev. Leo John, pastor of the First Seventh Day Adventist Church of White Plains and with Ms. Elizabeth Cummings, Darryl’s mother, resulted in a successful community outreach. There will be a funeral service for Darryl at the First Seventh Day Adventist Church, 180 Juniper Hill Rd., White Plains, Wednesday, June 24; wake at 5 p.m. and funeral at 7 p.m.

Following the funeral service the remains of Darryl will be flown to London, England for burial. Ms. Cummings and her four-year-old son will accompany the body to the final resting place.

Feiner shared in an email: “Ms. Cummings is grateful to the residents of Greenburgh for the overwhelming response she received which has not only been a source of comfort but also made it possible for her mother and the rest of her family to properly grieve the loss of this young man that is so dear to the family.”
