John Roe Rescue Efforts

On Saturday, October 6th a tragedy struck the Roe family in Cassville, WI. John Roe (resident of Cassville, WI and Burlington, WI) a son, father, sibling and brother to many went missing on the Mississippi river while fishing. Although we do not have many answers to John’s disappearance, and his whereabouts remain unknown, hope remains within us all. As we pray for a miracle return, it is with deep sadness that after days of searching, we recognize the recovery efforts underway in Grant County to bring John home.

Due to the intense river conditions and heavy rainfall, rescue and recovery efforts are dangerous and require special sonar equipment and personnel. This equipment and team of experts working to bring peace to all those touched by John operates solely on donations. With a long road ahead for family and friends, we write this note to you (loved ones, friends, generous visitors) in hopes that you would kindly offer any form of monetary donation to assist in this difficult time. The donations received on this GoFundMe page will be appropriately distributed to the team assisting in the recovery search on Oct. 9th, 10th, and 11th and the Roe family.

We thank you for any and all donations and want you to know that we appreciate all the effort, kind words and prayers sent our way in this difficult time. We love you, John.
