Help lay my father to rest

On February 1st, 2018 a terrible freak accident occurred. My Dad, John Newberry was lying underneath his large pickup truck without his tires on it to do some repair underneath it. A wedge came lose and unfortunately the whole truck came tumbling down on top of him crushing him fatally. After a friend who was present at the scene rushed to get EMTs over to help him, they quickly figured out a desperate attempt to lift the truck up and remove my Dads poor lifeless body from the weight of the truck and onto a stretcher for transport to the nearest hospital. After numerous attempts to try and bring him back to life, his time was evidently done.
  My Daddy is such an incredible man. He fought tooth and nail to make sure his daughter (me) was happy and well taken care of. He absolutely adored his 3 grandsons (Hayden, Carson, and John) and enjoyed every minute with them that he had. He was not ready to go. He loved his grand babies and although he suffered with some back pain throughout the years, he always put on a brave face for us all. 

I (his daughter) am
asking for help in donation towards a memorial/funeral service for my Dad. Unfortuanlty no life insurance is available and we are sort of in a hole with all that needs to be paid for, we just cannot afford it. It would be nice if our family could focus on the grieving of our tragic loss and not have to stress and worry over how this amazing man will be laid to rest.
