Funeral Support for Dennis Delcamp

After the unexpected loss of Dennis Delcamp at the age of 44, his family is in need of support. As a volunteer fireman, Dennis passionately devoted a large part of his life to service and helping others.

The loss of Dennis was not planned for. After working tirelessly his whole life, with the hopes of being closer to his family and increasing his financial stability, these goals were cut short by a heart attack. We now have the chance to help carry out Dennis's wishes.

In 2018, Dennis and his fiance Sue moved to Cody, Wyoming to be closer to Sue's daughter, Maria, and seek out new opportunities outside of Western NY. Dennis's son, Andrew, was planning on going to Wyoming and experiencing all of the great things Dennis told Andy about. Unfortunately, Andy never had the chance to visit.

As his only son, Andrew is responsible for carrying out the duties of bringing his father back to Chautauqua County and laying him to rest. At any age this is a huge task, and at age 19, Andrew is well beyond his years to do so. With the support of his Aunt Sorena, they both are carrying out this large responsibility. 

 As a mechanic, Dennis could fix anything. He and Andy spent every weekend for a year rebuilding a 1994 Camaro from the ground up. This was Andy's first car. Andy says the time spent with his dad during this project is better than any car money could buy. 

On top of regular funeral costs, Dennis is being flown 1,500 miles back to his hometown. In creating a GoFundMe, we are hoping to help Andy minimize the financial burden on him and his family. Any small amount of money would help the Delcamp family, and all donations are greatly appreciated. This is our chance to give back to a family who has given to our community.
