Mr Elder Quinteros Fire Relief Fund

On January 31, 2018 Elders Furniture Repair in Tyler, TX caught fire and was completely destroyed. Mr Elder Quintero is our 80 year old Grandaddy who has been doing furniture repairs and refurbishing for 65 years. He came to The United States in 1972 and has made a name for himself working extremely hard repairing antiques. He has been doing business in Tyler, TX for the last 30 years.  Circumstances  have restricted him from obtaining medical insurance or homeowners/business insurance, so it will be extremely difficult to recover from this tragedy. There was alot of products and materials that were destroyed, as well as his 2 vehicles, main shop, and back shop.

Mr Elder is well, but he is at a Dallas hospital being monitored with the proper machines for burn victims. In addition to medical bills, we are going to have to bulldoze the shop or any other remnants quickly with it being inside the city limits.

There is going to be a lot of recovery and clean up needed and any monitary support and/or clean up donations would GREATLY help ease the burden for our family! All donations will be used for any professional clean up needed, medical bills, and/or monthly expenses.  His business was his main source of income and will have to use some donations to support him and his wife.  Mr Elder is greatly concerned for his customers, whereas their furniture were antiques or heirlooms, and were lost in the fire as well.

We are asking for this amount goal to be reached by February 28, 2018. Because it is still very early in the accident, we are unsure of specifics but will gladly keep updating. Gloria Page, who is Elder Quintero's daughter will be managing the funds  for Mr Elder, and delivering it to him through a bank account.
