Joey left behind his partner, Shanda MacLeod and their two beautiful daughters. He is also survived by his teen daughter, his father, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. Joey was currently out of work due to the recent shut down of the pulp mill affecting many who work in the forestry industry. Edited to add: He had just started back to work on Friday, April 17. Joey was the sole provider for their family, which leaves Shanda and her girls in a financially hard place on top of the tragedy that has occurred.
We, Shanda’s family, are asking for donations for burial or cremation costs initially. All money raised above that will go directly to Shanda and the girls for current and future living expenses so Shanda does not have to rush out to look for work (she really can’t during this pandemic), but can continue to stay-at-home with the girls while they grieve their loss. Beyond that, we are hopeful that they gather a little nest egg for the girls’ future education as well.
Thank you all for reading, sharing and helping our sister and daughter out. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. Please share this GoFundMe page link to help spread the word!
Thank you to our kind and caring community who have already been reaching out to our families.
God bless you!
