A funeral has been set for 46-year-old Orlando Florez, the homeless Nyack man found dead in Memorial Park on Christmas Eve, who is believed to have froze to death.
The funeral will be held Saturday, Dec. 29 at St. John's Church in Piermont. The service was organized by Hanneman Funeral Home's Keith Taylor, who was contacted by Florez's son shortly after the death.
The service will be conducted in Spanish.
The medical examiner's office has not yet confirmed what killed Florez, but Orangetown Police said it was likely the cold, and not foul play. Authorities said Florez may have drank enough to pass out beforehand.
Florez was discovered by a resident walking his dog, who originally thought the man was sleeping and left to buy him a coat and breakfast.
