On the morning of April 22, 2018, Andrew (Andy) Bizhikii Gokee began his journey to the spirit world and everlasting happiness. He took his last breath in this realm with many of his family members by his side. There are still many unanswered questions surrounding the events leading up to what transpired. Regardless of these unanswered questions, the Gokee family still has the costs associated with the transportation of Andy from Minneapolis to Red Cliff and other funeral related expenses. We are asking for assistance in covering these costs. Any help that we are able to receive and in any form is greatly appreciated.
His spirit fire will be at his sister Darla's house at 88820 Blueberry Rd in Red Cliff.
Traditional Midewin Services for Andy will be held in Red Cliff at the Youth Center, which is located at 89645 Youth Center Dr.
The Wake will be held at 6:30pm Wednesday evening. Funeral 10:00am Thursday morning. There will be two feasts and the family is asking for the community to help by bringing a kettle of food. Wednesday Eve & Thursday Morning. Please contact Lori & John Duffy with food donations.
Update: All funds will be going to Andy's daughter, Holly Gauthier. This will be so his children and family can take care of all remaining funeral costs, pay the Officiators of the ceremonial services, to pay for the transportation from the hospital to Red Cliff, and for any remaining financial burdens the family may have to cover following the present circumstances.
If you would like to simply mail a check or cash, you can send them to his sister Darla's address, which is above.
We would like to thank everybody for their kindness and generosity. ❤ Andy will forever be loved.
