Memorial Fund for Dennis Kimbrell

On Saturday, July 29, in the early morning hours, we lost our beloved father, Dennis Kimbrell.  He was only 61. None of us imagined that he would be taken from us so soon, and his unexpected passing has left us shocked and heartbroken. Dad was an amazing, generous, caring man, and we have taken it upon ourselves to arrange for a memorial service that we feel he deserves. Although we are making every effort to cover the expenses of his memorial on our own, we have found ourselves overwhelmed with the costs of planning an unexpected service. We are reaching out to friends and family members whose lives he has touched, to help us celebrate Dad's life.

     We understand how much he meant to so many people, and any contribution we receive that exceeds the cost of his memorial service will be donated to the Racing Hearts Foundation. As most of you know, Dad suffered from a massive heart attack that led to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). The Racing Hearts Foundation aims to improve survival rates in people that have experienced SCA, so we feel this charity is the right choice.

     We are so thankful for the outpouring of support we have been receiving over this past difficult week, and regardless of donation, we would love to have everyone attend his memorial service on August 6.


All donations will go to an account managed by Hannah to pay for funeral expenses, and any remainder of funds will be donated to Racing Hearts.
