This campaign fund beneficiary is Kailee Weisner, she is the mother of the children this fund was set up to benefit.Please read below for details in how those funds have been used. Thank you!
*Update* **This fund was orgininally intended to raise money for a meaningful gift for Ryan Lohrey's kids. It has now grown into a full blown support fund still 100% for the two children Ryan left behind. Below is the original text and is all still true. This fund and every dollar in it will ensure the kids are taken care of after the passing of an amazing man and father.**
Ryan Lohrey worked the first 8 years of his Navy career trying to become a SARC. He sacrificed, he overcame, and he never gave up no matter what hurdles came up or issues the Navy threw his way.
This campaign is specifically for the procurement of two carved/hand sculpted wooden SARC Jacks with HM2 Ryan Lohrey's kids names on it. One for each child.
As they grow up, I would like them to never forget his courage, committment to a cause, and his no quit, unbreakable attitude.
Any additional amount of money received will be transferred to a grocery gift card or other needed expenses and every single dollar will go directly to help the 2 children that Ryan left behind. It is intended that this fund offset costs while the details of his life insurance/entitlements/other charitable donations are figured out.
While this gofundme was set up with primarily other SARCs in mind, support from all others are always appreciated. The lack of information on this description is intentional at this time. Please contact me for additional details or questions, as we are trying to provide shelter from violating the family's privacy more than it has been already.
For credibility purposes and the fact that this fund awareness has spread so rapidly outside our community, I would like to clarify (without detracting from the main objective of raising money for the children), I am also a SARC in the community, and a close family friend, thus the reason for setting up this fund. The surviving family are in contact and aware of this fund and are truly thankful for everyone's generosity and caring.
Thank you to everyone who shows their support. Both financially and through positive thoughts and prayers.
Never above you, never below you, always beside you.
Swift, silent, deadly.
