Maniaci Family Funeral & Expenses

$4,155 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 47 months
Tatum Criner McWatters  EAST JORDAN, MI

This fund has been started to help the Maniaci Family pick up the pieces after their husband and father Darrel Maniaci passed, January 4, 2013 in a tragic car accident. Darrel's wife, Rachel Maniaci and their 4 kids have been left with nothing. They have no way to pay for the expenses a family incurs after such a tragedy. He died with no insurance or resources to leave his grieving family. 


The goal for this fund was set only at $1000 in hopes that that is the bare minimum that was can raise for this family. The funeral expenses alone will be closer to $3000-$5000 but the way this site works is if we don't raise our goal, the family won't receive any of the gifts. 

Please, if Darrel Maniaci has meant anything to you, whether he inked your skin, chilled with you eating sushi, broke faces in mosh pits with you or if you just knew him as the awesome "Ink man" he was, please help us overwhelm this family with love and support. Your donations will make a huge difference to this family in this terrible time.

Wow guys! Thank you so much for all you have done! Rachel is overwhelmed by the kindness shown by all of you during this extremely tragic time in their lives. I have spoken with her today and she wanted me to make sure all of you knew how much your giving has really impacted their lives. They really wouldn't be able to get through this without it. So again... THANK YOU! Thank you for just giving without needing anything in return. You guys have really done right by Darrel and his family. Seriously, God bless all of you.

Thank you to everyone who has given from what they have to help support the Maniaci family in their time of need. Every dollar counts and it means the world to Darrel's wife Rachel and his 4 kids. Please remember that although the goal says $1000, we need $3000-$5000 for the funeral expenses. We had to set the goal low so the family would get whatever was given. Rachel was shocked and so grateful we set up this fund. She said, "Darrel would be so happy..." Let's continue to show this broken family how much we love them and how much we all loved D.

Darell started tattooing me 15 years ago. He was a good friend. My ink was always my therapy sessions because we would just bullshit about out our families. I always thougt my sleeve was a working progress. I don't have the heart to finish. And my daughter's who all met him also couldnt wait to get their first tattoo by him. I'm just so sorry l found out so late. It breaks my heart that much more.

My heart goes out to Rachel and the kids. Darrel was one of the best friends a guy could ever have! Shared so many great memories with him. Either on the road or at shows or letting him inflict pain on me which he loved doing so much. It was truly an honor to have been a part of the band he started for so many years. Rest in peace my brother! Love you D
