Dutch Close Memorial Fund

On Saturday, Oct 9th. Raymond "DUTCH" Close went home to be with the Lord. His family was shaken by the unexpected loss of such an admirable soul. Dutch did so many kind things for others and many want to be able to 'help' in honor of a life well lived & the servant he was to so many others. He loved to do things for those around him without recognizition or praise. He had this quiet, yet special way of letting others know he cared deeply and wanted people to know he was there if they needed anything. Now it's our turn to take the time to pour out our gratitude and love to his family during this difficult time & relieve some of the unexpected expenses they will have before them. Dutch worked hard to provide for his family and bless those around him. Many want to show how much he blessed their lives by giving back in honor of his love & sacrifice.
All proceeds raised will go to his loving wife of 40 years, to help alleviate any expenses & allow his family to feel less of a burden than they already carry, with this devastating loss. Whatever is laid on your heart to give will be a blessing to Robin & her family as they navigate this road that is before them. Dutch would be HONORED to know that others are loving on his family in honor of him.  In honor of a servant who loved BIG and had a heart of GOLD for his family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and even complete strangers. Let's show his family how much his love & sacrifice meant to each of us!
