Help Needed for Family in need

Hello All,

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to create a GoFundMe and ask for financial help due to this most unfortunate circumstance. As most of you have heard Dale Porter passed away in the early hours on Thursday, July 27th from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Dale was many things in life but above all he was most certainly a family man first. He and his fiancée Kimberly Quimby started a life together 15 years ago and together raised Kasey, Zachery and Kayla. For anyone that knows these three kids, that was no easy task, but he did it with pride. Later in their lives together, their oldest daughter Kasey gave them a grandson whom they were in line to adopt. Kimberly and Dale together helped Kasey raise their grandson and eventually Connor moved in for full time care provided by them. Connor and Dale were best buds, at three years old this little boy had Dale wrapped around his finger and the bond that the two of them shared was like none other.

Dale was not only a family man, but loved riding motorcycles, scuba diving, woodworking and most always could be found working on a project to keep busy. He was a man of many talents and used these talents to help those around him.

Dale has helped many over the years and now it’s time for us to ask for help. Kimberly is now a one parent household with three children and a grandson that still need help. She is unable to do this alone, and with the added costs of funeral services and expenses we need to come together to ensure that she is able to move forward and keep afloat.

If you are able to donate to this family it would help tremendously, if you’re unable please share this GoFundMe page to help spread the word of a family in need.

Thank you.
