Final expenses for Joe Motichka

As many of you know,  our community has suffered a terrible loss,  a very sweet and beautiful soul was taken from us unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.

Joe Riley Motichka was only 7 years old when he lost his life due to a very unfortunate and devastating atv accident.

Joe had a smile and eyes that would light up even the darkest room.  He was a beautiful energetic little boy  full of life, love and adventure. Even in his short 7 years Joe made this world a better place. He lived each day to its fullest exploring the outdoors.  He loved learning and playing with friends and most of all being near his family.

There are no words to describe the pain and sorrow this family is feeling right now.

Please help take the financial burden of final expenses off the family during this heartbreaking and painful time of grief.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to this memorial fund or directly to Joe Motichka Memorial Fund account at Banner Bank. I have appointed  Cindy Helmstead (Joe's grandma) to be in charge of making sure that any outstanding bills acclimated from this tragedy  be paid using these funds. 

There will be a private celebration of life Saturday July 22. The family wants to say thank you for all the outpouring  prayers, love and support in this tragic time.
