My dad's funeral service

My father, (Gregory Jonathan Dieterle), was a wonderful son to his parents, brother to his siblings, husband to my mother, father to his children and grandfather to his grandchildren. Despite surviving two strokes eleven years ago which left his left side paralyzed, he persevered and lived the best life he knew how. However, recently he took a turn for the worse and has spent the last couple of months in the hospital. Unfortunately, despite two surgeries and hospice care, my father succumbed to a series of heart attacks on October 20, 2017.

My father was a hard working man, but he was also a family man. He taught us everything he knew. The days before he passed away, he told us that everything will be fine and to enjoy every minute of life God has given us. A loving man, he left behind a wife, 4 children, 2 living at home, 1 in college, and 4 grandchildren. We knew my father wouldn’t be with us much longer, but the suddenness had left us with little preparation completed, and so I am raising money to help my mom pay for funeral service costs. Any amount donations are greatly appreciated. This will not only help with the service, but also to help pay other expenses.
