Joe Dean

We are trying to raise money to cover the expenses in the death of a  beloved family member, Joe Dean, who died suddenly and unexpectedly Wednesday, March 7, 2018, of a massive heart attack. The family has no life insurance so any donations, no matter how small, will help lessen the burden on Joe’s family during this sorrowful time.

Joe met the love of his life and best friend Kathy, 27 years ago and they have been inseparable. They raised three sons and were very active grandparents to their 9 grandchildren.

The couple had their hands full raising their sons and grandchildren and working but always took time to share the things they enjoy like taking motorcycle rides, getting tattoos and dancing to thier favorites songs in the kitchen.

Joe worked at United Methodist Church for 19+ years. Both Joe and Kathy were involved in community outreach.

The hole Joe’s death has left in his family’s heart will take time to repair – perhaps never for his wife -- but their most pressing need now is to get funds to cover his expenses So if you could support my GoFundMe by making a donation and then sharing it with your network I would greatly appreciate it. I know that money can be tight so please know that even $5 helps gets me closer to my goal.
