Help us honor and support our grieving family

38962754_1556891286491668_r.jpegIt weighs heavy on my heart to have to share that our best friend and brother, Joe Butcher, is no longer with us.  

Joe was a great man who proudly served his country with 2 tours overseas to Afghanistan and Iraq. Joe had been struggling deeply with depression and PTSD for quite some time after getting out of the Army and was receiving help from the VA but it, unfortunately, was not enough. Words cannot express the pain we are all feeling from this loss and for his family. 

It is our intention to support his loving wife, Yani, and their beautiful 2 daughters that he leaves behind as they try to cope with this tragedy. Please join us in supporting his family in hopes to cover their funeral costs.

Jacob Mayfield will be taking on the responsibility of ensuring that all donations will be directly used for all funeral costs and all other expenses that need coverage for Yani and the girls. Please do not hesitate to reach out to him  directly if you have an concerns or questions!

Thank you all so much.

Please reach out to any of us if you have any questions.
