Funeral expenses for Thomas Heck

On March 22, 2018 the world lost an amazing man. Thomas was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. Tom touched numerous lives and was loved by so many.

Nearly 15 years ago Thomas was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The disease left him unable to work and cut his career as a Mercedes technician short. Over the years medical costs have been overwhelming. As if dealing with the effects of the Parkinson’s wasn’t enough, Thomas lost his leg due to a fall 6 years ago. With mounting bills and expenses he was forced to use his retirement and savings to cover the cost of living and medical bills.

I ask for your help during this difficult time. All donations will go towards funeral expenses to give him the proper service he deserves. If I exceed my fundraising goal all additional proceeds will go to the Parkinson’s Foundation.

I would like to give his wife, Stephanie, peace of mind during this very difficult time as she is left without her husband and a financial burden.
Anyone who knew Tom knows that he had a huge heart and would help anyone who needed it. Please consider helping his family in their time of need.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, any donations are welcome.
If you are unable to donate all prayers and kind words about Thomas are greatly appreciated.
