WEST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -- A West Haven man who had a dying wish to meet President Donald Trump has died.
Jay Barrett, who was battling cystic fibrosis, passed away Tuesday night, according to his sister Bridgette Hoskie.
Barrett had said his dying wish is to speak to President Trump, as he was a big fan.
Last Wednesday, that wish came true after President Trump called Barrett.
This past Saturday, Trump administration member and lifelong family friend of the Trump family, Lynne Patton delivered Barrett a “Make America Great Again” hat signed by President Trump.
The plan started while Barrett was in the hospital. He had texted his sister a bucket list with a wish to meet President Trump.
