Billy Thistlewood Memorial Fund

On Sunday, November 19, 2017, our world changed in a heartbreaking and shocking way, something we are still trying to process. Billy Thistlewood, just 42 years old, passed away. He leaves behind his wife, Danielle, his sons Tyler, Logan, William, Jr. and his daughter Olivia.

There is no logic to this path we as a family now find ourselves on, there is no script we can follow to understand what to do next. However, what we do know is that we need to honor Billy's memory and his deep love of his family by rallying together to help Danielle and his children through this incredibly difficult time.  The loss of Billy's income will put an incredible financial burden on his surviving family now and in the future. Any and all money that is donated will be given to Danielle to help her manage through this unexpected loss and to assist with the sudden financial burden.

Our world is darker now that the joyful, kind, wonderful, and empathetic Billy is gone. We THANK YOU for your generosity and also ask for prayers and strength during this time.
