SHELTON - The farmers market will play host Saturday to a special event to aid the family of a 13-year-old city boy who died last month.

Liquid Lunch will have a food truck roll out from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the market, 100 Canal St. East, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the family of Michael “Mikey” John Buckley.

Born Nov. 8, 2007, in Milford, he was the son of Shelton firefighter Patrick Buckley and Paula Haschak and her partner Bryan Stasko of West Haven. According to a GoFundMe page established for the family, Mikey Buckley of West Haven and Shelton died unexpectedly June 20 at his home in Shelton.

Mikey had just graduated from eighth grade and was to attend West Haven High School in the fall.

“Mikey was a son, grandchild, nephew, cousin and friend to many,” the site reads. “Mikey had an undeniable bond with his mother. They went on many adventures together to Mystic, Quassy, playgrounds and movie nights with popcorn and chocolate milk.

“He also loved being his dad's side kick with firehouse activities and everything he did and created so many memories with him throughout his 13 years of life,” the site added.
