Lee Dobbs Memorial Fund

On June 6, 2013, AirEvac 109 went down as it was making its final approach for landing at the company's helipad in Manchester, Kentucky. All three crew members were killed, including flight medic Lee Dobbs.

Lee leaves behind a wife of 22 years, Emilee, and three sons, Jordan (22), Hayden (11), and Walker (17 months). The family had recently moved from Tennessee to Kentucky to build a home and live their dream life on a farm. Lee, the family's sole provider, was in the process of building the house himself. Emilee, a stay at home mom, and her boys are now left to pick up the pieces.

This fund was started on their behalf so they can move forward with the building process and try to continue with their lives as normally as possible. Thank you for your compassion and kindness toward this sweet family, and for honoring Lee, a true hero who paid the ultimate price for the sake of saving others.
