Burgess Children Education Fund

The Burgess family lost their husband and father, Todd Burgess, on Thursday August 3rd, 2017. Todd suffered a massive heart attack in their home in Seattle. The kids (Ella, Raleigh, and Brooke) were home and heard their father collapse upstairs in the bathroom. They rushed to his aid and performed CPR. The paramedics arrived quickly but were unable to revive him. The autopsy revealed an enlarged heart and a 90% blockage.

Todd and the family were blessed to have an amazing three week vacation just before this happened where Todd saw so many of his beloved family and friends. Todd will be cremated and there will be two celebration of life parties for him held in Cincinnati and in New Hampshire.

Heather has expressed that food and flowers are unnecessary. In light of Todd's focus on the future of their children, what would really help is a contribution to a Go Fund Me Education Fund for Ella, Raleigh, and Brooke. It is a very sad time for them all especially for the kids who were with him and not able to save him. Heather & Todd & the kids were part of many different communities (P&G, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New Hampshire, Amazon, Wash U, RPI, Seattle, IU etc) and it would be great if we can support them.
