Daniel Schwiesow Memorial Account


One tiny bee has devastated life for Daniel, Leslie and their children, who range from 21 - 3 years old.  Their life has been turned upside down with no end in sight.

While driving, a bee flew into the truck Daniel was driving and stung him.  Within minutes, Daniel was unconscious, went into coronary arrest and the oxygen supply to his brain cut off.     On Wednesday, September 19th, he was taken off life support and he is no longer with us.       

No one knew Daniel was allergic to bees and even if they did, could never imagine that a tiny little bee could do so much harm.



Daniel was the sole provider to Leslie, their grown son Tyler, age 21, and their three young children, Daniel, age 12, Graydon, age 10 and Alaya, age 3.  

We need help to make sure that their bills are met, the mortgage paid, and their children fed.  We need to make sure that Leslie has childcare while she makes plans for Daniel’s passing.   We need to make sure that this young family does not lose anything else.

We do not know how large the hospital and medical bills will be - -  Daniel was in ICU and on life support so we do know the bills will be considerable.   We do not know what the future will bring.    We don’t know anything right now except that Leslie and her kids need help right now.


Please, I am begging you, donate to this fund.  Every penny raised will go to paying bills, buying food, finding someone to watch the children and buy them their necessities.    It will go to hospital bills and will bring some hope to their life that is missing right now.

Thank you so much for reading this.   Please pass the message on.  We need all of the help possible.
