Bruce L Wilcoxson, Jr. Benefit Fund

Bruce was a in a motorcycle accident on March 22, 2012 that left him a quadriplegic. Bruce fought hard over the past 22 months with pressure wounds, numerous infections, surgery's, pneumonia, feeding & breathing issues. He put one hell of a fight! Early morning on New Years Day, Bruce suffered an A-Flutter type of cardiac arrest that left him with severe brain damage. The decision was made to remove his ventilator at 3:15 on January 4, 2014. Bruce passed away at 2:29 a.m., on January 5, 2014 at OSF Hospital in Peoria, IL. Bruce was a great friend to many & a great father to Alex & Kash. Bruce absolutely loved his two grand daughters, Alivia & Brogen. As his POA's, Erik & I are asking for your help to lay Bruce to rest. There is no life insurance money to help with the final arrangements or even his final medical bills. He did not have money or assets to cover all these costs. If there is any way you can help take this burden off the family & close friends, please help by making a donation through this web site! This money will go into Bruce's account to help pay for his final expenses.

Thank You so much for taking the time to read this, and please continue to pass this on to everyone you know.
