Fontaine Family

On June 16, 2018 while coming home from fishing with his son, we lost a father, husband, son, family member, and friend. Jon Fontaine was a strong soul that had always persevered through life. When life through him a challenge, he never gave up, buckled down, and overcame any curve ball sent his way. 

In October of 2011, Jon lost his right arm and leg. He never let that stop him from providing for his family. He learned to walk again, learned to write with his left hand, and showed us all that disabilities are not anything that can stop you from living the life you want to live. His will to love and care for his family gave him the ambition to do the impossible. He was an amazing man that will be missed by all that knew him.

We are thankful to say that his 12 year old son survived the accident and is recovering from his injuries. Any funds received will be contributed towards the funeral, medical, and for the care of his 3 children that he left behind.
