As most have heard by now, Chris Perow tragically and unexpectedly lost his life on Wednesday, September 18th.
Chris was on a hunting trip in Idaho with his brother-in-law, Dan Groh, a US Marine and a Firefighter. On that Wednesday night, a thunderstorm had rolled through the area. Lightning struck a tree, which then fell on Chris's tent, causing instant death. There was no suffering.
Chris leaves behind his lovely wife Lauren, and two sons Hunter and Everett. What has happened is beyond comprehension and the family are all still in shock. Lauren is struggling to cope with the loss of her best friend and husband, so we are stepping in to help organize and fund the Memorial Service.
Tentatively he memorial service will be held on either Friday September 27th or Saturday, September 28th.
Exact time and location are TBD, and updates will be provided within the next couple of days. We will also plan on a social gathering after the service for friends and family to share stories in celebration of Chris's life.
Many have already sent messages asking how to help support Lauren and the kids. Rather the spending money on flowers, any donations will go towards the cost of the Memorial Service and to the family. Your support goes beyond money, and please also use this as an opportunity to leave messages for Lauren and the kids to read.
Please follow this page so that you receive forthcoming updates.
Lauren did not ask for this, but the support and generosity will go a long way for the Perow family.
On behalf of the Perow Family,
