I am the brother of Arthur (Artie) Strout who lost his life in the mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine on October 25, 2023. Artie’s wife Kristy and their blended family of five children need support through this difficult time, especially while Kristy is out of work for a time. We would like to raise as much as possible for them to help cover funeral costs, basic living expenses such as housing, food, and some expensive medications for children not covered by insurance as well as preparation to adjust to a single income home. Due to Kristy not having an active bank account, the family has agreed that the money will be withdrawn by me, her brother-in-law Tyler, and given directly to her and the kids for the expenses listed above. Family and friends are surrounding the family with love and support and more details will come as to memorial plans for Artie.
