Support for the Cottrell Family

Monday December 28th 2020,  Patrick Cottrell was taken to the hospital for what turned out to be an aortic aneurysm. This led to aortic dissection, and eventually, the loss of his life. Patrick was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He was a Detention Officer for Gila County Sheriff’s Office for over 10 years, and was said by his coworkers to be a good, hardworking man. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Patrick left behind his loving wife, Debbie, his son Jonathan and his daughters: Veronika, Emma, and Josie who’s only 16. As the family grieves, they also have hope and are filled with joy, for they know that their Superman is with his Savior. With this tragic and sudden passing came the major loss of income for his family. It also resulted in multiple medical expenses including the airlift to the hospital in Mesa. The goal of this fundraiser is to help cover medical expenses and support Debbie and Josie as they enter this new season. This fundraiser is created to be a gift to Debbie, as we are not bringing it to her attention. All donations to this family are greatly appreciated.
