Derek Holst Memorial Fund

Derek Holst, 50, suddenly passed away on December 28, 2014, leaving a wife and two daughters on their own; Alina Holst, 51, Marina Holst, 25, and Daryn Holst, 20.  Derek had a wonderful sense of humor and was loving and warm. His wife and and two daughters were his entire world and would do anything for their happiness.
The oldest, Marina, is currently attending a local community college for computer animation and the youngest, Daryn, attends the University of Arizona and both relied on their father for financial support.
Derek, being the main source of financial support for his family paid for rent and tuition for Daryn at U of A, cell phone bill and the mortgage for their family home in Anthem.
Please help Alina with paying for Daryn and Marina to continue their college education and for Alina to keep her beautiful home, every donation is greatly appreciated.
God Bless.
