The Erick Borboa Memorial Fund, which can be found on Paypal here, has been established to help pay for the services.

Borboa, who lived in Hollywood,  described himself on his Facebook page as "driven by my wild heart, but grounded by my old soul."

Pictures of Borboa posted online show that he had an affinity for skateboarding and motorcycles. On his Instagram account, Borboa posted pictures of fliers for gigs where he was scheduled to DJ.

"Erick Borboa was someone you wanted to meet, and if you didn't you were going to meet him anyway. He was the kind of guy that if he had been introduced to you from his friends two minutes ago, he'd already have a drink ready to share with you," said friend Davey Cooperwasser. "[He was] a true larger than life personality that attracted many people around him. Erick was that guy in the middle of the room people were listening to, laughing, and singing with--literally. A man who loved The Beatles, motorcycles, and skateboarding to name a few of his talents and interests."

On the motorcycle blog At The Risers, Jason Weber memorialized Borboa with a post showing images of him skating and riding an ATV.

"Sharp dresser, party animal and all around nice guy...Borboa, you'll be missed by many," Webert wrote in the blog post.

"Rest in Peace Erick Borboa, you had the biggest personality and best dance," commented Leila Ramsey on Patch. "You did not deserve this."
