Vaughn E. Mettler
8/17/1950 - 2/25/2023
Vaughn E. Mettler, 72, Peru, passed away Saturday, February 25, 2023, at the Waters of Peru, following a long battle with cardiovascular disease. He had battled cancer long before that, having been in remission the past 12 years. But this time, that great big, loveable heart of his finally wore out.

If you had the luxury of meeting him, you were his friend. He adopted everyone he met and was loved by all. There wasn't a mean bone in his body.
Vaughn would often say, "Keep the smiles coming." Another phrase he quoted frequently was "The Lord knew what was happening better than any of us." He put his trust in the Lord which gives his family great comfort knowing where he is now. What can we do to show our love and appreciation for this man? What can we do to show his family how much we care?

4/4/1980 - 1/29/2023
My brother entered the Montefiore Moses Hospital in the Bronx, N.Y. on January 21st. January 29th, 10:30 a.m. my brother passed the Doctor calls & says I'm sorry and goes into a rant that it’s not her or the Hospitals fault, but it was my brother's health. The Doctor asked "Do you want an autopsy"? I replied “yes”. She then told me that an autopsy takes 30 days to perform & would derail funeral plans are you thinking cremation because there is no need for an autopsy. I replied “I want an autopsy”. The Doctor stated that she will see if they will approve it, see if he qualifies. I got a call the next day “Your request for an autopsy has been denied, because your brother does not meet the weight requirements". Then my brother's body was quietly removed from the hospital without any notification & I had to search for him as he is shipped around to & from different locations. When I Finally locate my brother's body I am told to pick him up that day. The ME also stated that "the Death Certificate states “DO NOT PERFORM AUTOPSY”. The Dr's. goal was to have my brother put in potters field without us knowing. Our donation goal is $8,000 to prove medical malpractice, so that we can finally lay him to rest. All donations go directly to the funeral home.

Thank you in advance for your consideration
