Quick wit. Sharp humor. A bright light and unique character.

This is how Phillip Hayward, a lab chemist in Rockland County, is being remembered.

The native of Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey died on Monday, Aug. 24 at 23 years old -- but his legacy lives on, thanks to a GoFundMe launched by Gabrielle Rodriguez in his memory.

The $11,800 that had been raised as of Tuesday morning will be donated to "The Trevor Project" in Phillip's name. The American non-profit organization focuses on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth. 

A Northern Highlands Regional High School graduate, Phillip earned his Bachelor's in chemistry from the University of Delaware. He had been working as a chemist in Orangeburg.

"Phillip always knew how to light up a room with his beautiful bright smile and contagious sharp humor," the GoFundMe says. 

"He was never at a loss for an outrageous quip or a witty phrase, and his unique character was enjoyed by all."
