The Dean Schaaf Legacy Fund

As everyone knows by now, the Schaaf family has suffered a tremendous loss this past month; one that has taken a huge toll on Dean's wife, Barbara Schaaf and daughters Tara and Dana. 

Barbara was suddenly and unexpectedly thrown into a situation where she is now a single parent and is the sole source of income for her family. Without the help and support of Dean by her side, it is going to be very difficult for her to support her family, especially with both girls in college. 


I, John Melloy, along with my brother Bob Melloy and the entire Melloy family, are asking for your help with love, support and donations for the Schaaf family...to help Barbara and the girls in any way that you can. This would help to alleviate the stressful financial burdens and worry off of Barbara's plate at this extremely difficult time. Anything is appreicated, to let the Schaaf family know that they are not alone during this challenging and devastating chapter of their lives. We would  be grateful for any help or contributions.

I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.
