For Mel and the girls

On Thursday 8th June 2017 an angel unexpectedly and without warning found his wings.

Richard (Noppy) Knopka’s life was tragically taken in a car accident on the outskirts of Kojonup leaving behind his beautiful wife Mel, three amazing daughters Leisa, Dana and Maddie and a small country town shocked and in disbelief.

Noppy touched the lives of so many people in his own unique way. His wife and three girls were his everything and to his family he was more than just a husband and dad. He was a hero to his daughters, a best friend and soulmate to his wife and a true Aussie legend to his mates. He was always there to lend a hand and put a smile on someone’s face.

Now it’s our turn to return the favour and put the smile back into his families lives.

Unfortunately as we all know when tragedy occurs so does financial stress. We know that so many people want to show their support and are asking what they can do to make things a little bit easier for the people Richard loved.

If you would like to assist financially and help lighten the load for the Knopka family as they try to come to terms with this tragic loss and attempt to put their shattered lives back together, please feel free to donate and ease the stress and worry of a family in mourning. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. Thankyou
