The Patunas Family Fund

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that we share with you the sudden passing of Ramsey resident  Michael Patunas, 51, beloved husband of Jill and father of Emily, 20, Alex, 17, and Lauren and Sarah, 14. 

Michael experienced cardiac arrest in the early morning hours of August 27th and  was rushed to the hospital. Michael passed away peacefully with friends and family at his side on August 30, 2018. His sudden illness and passing are a shock to all who knew and loved him.

A fund has been set up to help the family, as Jill is now the sole supporter of her household and 4 children. We are setting a goal of $100,000. All money collected will help Jill and the children with immediate expenses (daily household, medical and funeral), as well as prepare for future needs, including the children's college expenses.

Jill and her children are extremely appreciative of the outpouring of love and support they are receiving. Please feel free to share this page with others. 

This fund has been created by family friends. Thank you so much for your help.
