Dean Traynor's Repatriation Fund

I'd like to first express my deepest gratitude to anyone viewing this page on behalf of my family, Dean’s friends and Dean himself. Even while writing this I’m still left in disbelief that he’s gone, and that at any moment now I’ll get a call from him telling me that he’s doing fine and going into proud detail about his son Donovan's life so far. It pains us all that he is gone and that pain is going to linger for some time, but all we can do now is make sure he is properly mourned. The reason why this page is even required is simply that we want him home to give him the proper send off he deserves alongside his family, to be buried in a plot alongside his grandfather, but the cost of repatriating his remains as well as the funeral costs are going to be immensely expensive and we need help from anyone who is wishing to give it. Dean meant the world to many and his family would greatly appreciate any help we can get to cover the costs, to give closure to his family and friends at home and abroad. 

His mother will be overseeing the funeral arrangements and will ensure that any and all donations go towards a well planned and suitable send off, to give him the proper goodbye he deserves. 

We’re asking for any help you may be willing to give, in order to meet these expenses.  Please know that we appreciate every ounce of concern, well-wishes, and condolences you are giving us. And anything you may be willing to give in order to help us bring Dean home is a giant help, with anything over the requirement being donated to his little boy Donovan and his upbringing.

Finally, I just want to reiterate again how greatful his friends and family are for you viewing this page and keeping Dean in your heart and prayers. Dean may be gone but he will never be forgotten. Even if you cannot donate, sharing the link on facebook or twitter, anywhere, would be greatly appreciated.

God bless and again, thank you.
