Supporting The Knippelbergs

On April 15, 2019, our small town was changed forever.  A gunman shot and killed 4 people, one of the victims was Gary Knippelberg's mother, Darlene Knippelberg.  

This sudden loss has impacted the family in many different ways. Losing a parent is one of the hardest times a family can go through, but losing her is such an unexpected way is unimaginable. Gary, along with his wife, Lorita, are now dealing with the loss of his Mom as well as taking care of his special needs sister.

Gary has worked for Radec Group for 5+ years and is the kindest soul you could come upon. He is selfless, dedicated to his family and a hard worker. We want to show them the love and support Gary has given us, and in return help his family through this difficult and emotional time.  

Costs for the funeral, medications for his sister, travel for his son (who lives in Vancouver, BC), and other unforeseen expenses can easily add up. We do not want this family to have to deal with any more stressors than they have already been given.

Please donate if you can, send your love and support to this amazing family.
