Members of the Salesian High School community are reeling this morning from the death of a student last night.
Andy Feliz, a senior at Salesian High School, was found by his mother last night when she returned to the family home in Yonkers. The cause of death has not been officially determined but Feliz is believed to have died from natural causes. The school learned of the unexpected death by the boy's mother.
Salesian Seniors were informed of the death of their classmate at a special mass held at the school chapel.
Feliz was known as a devout Catholic. He was the organizer of an upcoming spiritual retreat for students next week.
Feliz's passing is the second tragic death of a Salesian student in two years. In 2009, Nicholas Nespolini, then a junior at Salesian, died in his sleep at his home in the Bronx.
Salesian High School an academic high school for boys founded by the Salesians of St. John Bosco.
