Ricky Renck's Funeral fund

On Sunday September the 30th a beloved husband, devoted father, and life long friend passed away unexpectedly.  A very special man whose life touched so many in a very special way had the opportunity to touch four more lives on Friday, October 5th by being a hero even after death and donating his organs. After a week of waiting and also dealing with trauma and devastation they were able to find matches through Live on New York (an organ donation foundation) and he was able to give his heart, liver and kidneys to people who would not have survived other wise. Although Ricky had faced a life threatening hurdle that has now taken his kind and beautiful soul from his incredible and amazing family at just 50 years young, his five children and beloved wife find so much strength  knowing that their dad and husband left this world, leaving such beautiful and selfless gifts behind. This still surprising occurrence has left them feeling alone in tackling the financial burdens this has placed on them. In life, situations happen without warning and unfortunately force people to put their backs against the wall, needing to reach out for some help. So I come before so many on their behalf asking those to lend a helping hand to Ricky's family so that they can honor him with the proper burial that he and his family deserves.  

 His family is left feeling lost and alone. On their behalf, I am asking for help in this desperate time of need. He left behind five children who have been through a tremendous amount of pain.  They want to be able to give him a proper burial and have sincere closure. He always went above and beyond to help those in need, without any judgement.  We are asking you to help the family and find a way for them to have a burial for a man that died a hero. Anything will help.
