Joel Helps Pay For Funeral

Published on September 30, 2008 with No Comments

Generous rocker Billy Joel is helping to pay for the funeral of a clam digger who was found dead close to the singer’s New York home.

Edwin Flores’ body was discovered off the coast of a Long Island Sound beach in Lattingtown on Monday, six days after he was first reported missing.

An autopsy is due to be performed in the next few days to establish the cause of death.

And Joel, who lives in nearby Centre Island, has already made a donation of an undisclosed amount to the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association, which will help Flores’ family with burial costs and other expenses.

Joel has long been a supporter of fisherman in Long Island, even championing their cause in his song The Downeaster Alexa.
