Support for Pete Sidener’s Girls

Pete Sidener was a wonderful person and an even more amazing father. On Saturday, September 2nd, 2018, Pete was taken too soon. Pete was spending the day on the boat with his friends, when one of his friends fell off the boat and into the water. Pete jumped in after him because he was having a hard time staying above water. Unfortunately, neither one of them resurfaced. Pete was the type of person who would do anything to help someone else. He was loving, and caring, and would do anything for anyone. He loved making people laugh and was the light of the room. The family is in great pain and is having a very hard time with this. These type of situations are very costly and the family would appreciate any kind of donation, big or small, to help will all the costs. My name is Kari, and I’m a very close family friend. Though I am the one who started this account, the money is not going to me. I have it set up so everything goes directly to the family. I personally thank each and everyone of you who is willing to help and so does the family. Please keep this family in your prayers. Please share this story.
