Petrone Family Fund

To anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Joe Petrone, you know that he was the most hard working, loyal, loving, positive, and amazing man.  He was the first to help another out, regardless if he knew you or not.  He was the first to make you smile even on your toughest day.  He loved his wife and two daughters more than anything, and told everyone he could how much he loved them every single day.

As Joe transitions out of his time here on earth, the burden on the Petrone family is unimaginable.  Not only are they missing a key part of their family that is irreplaceable, but there will also be unplanned funeral expenses and medical bills, two homes to maintain financially, and taking care of those sweet girls who are about to start school.

Whether you personally knew Joe or not, I can guarantee you one thing - he was one of a kind.  A signature line I had for him was "The world could always use more Joe Petrone."  I can't say that I know anyone who met him that he did not leave a lasting impression on as a loving, fun guy with a huge heart.  God must need his laughter and free spirit more than we do now.

If you are able to make a donation to help this family while their hearts are broken and stress is high, I know it would be greatly appreciated.  If you aren't able to help financially, please lift this family up in your prayers as they transition to a new normal and try to put some of the pieces back together.

God bless the Petrone family.  Joe will be missed by so many.
