David Rute

With a heavy heart, I am asking you to help cover expenses for the family of David Rute. David passed away suddenly on Monday, February 12th. David leaves behind his parents Gary and Connie, his brother Jared and wife Angelica, son Greyson and his buddy Bumpy Knuckles. Not to mention his grandparents, aunts, uncles and many cousins who all loved him very much.

David had a way of lighting up a room with his infectious smile, and making people laugh.  He will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have known him.

As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances. Funeral expenses are only the beginning for this family. Any remaining funds will be deposited in a trust/college fund for his son Greyson.

Anyone who knew David, knows that he had a huge heart and would help anyone who needed it. Please consider helping in this time of need.

I give you this one thought to keep.
I am with you still. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone.
I am with you still in each new dawn.
