Van Motman Family Fund

Last week the world lost an amazing Man way to soon, Dave Van Motman was one of a kind. Over the past several months he battled his way through cancer until the very end. He meant so much to so many people, his sense of humor, his big heart and most importantly the love of his family. He was known as uncle Dave by so many, but he was also a father to his two beautiful girls Taylor and Kaitlyn, a husband to his wonderful wife of almost 30 years Janell, he was a son, a brother and friend to the rest of us. I had known Dave for 10+ years. When I first stared at Bay Alarm, I would ride along with him as he would share jokes (not always clean ones) but those were the best kind. I learned a lot from him over the years on how to put people first, before yourself and I saw Dave doing it all the time. He genuinely cared about doing the right thing. Since my time ended at Bay Alarm, we started to lose touch, until he called me one day asking if I could help him and his family sell their house and downsize into something a little more manageable. It was during this time I got to know another side of Dave and see how wonderful his whole family is. We spent a lot of time together and every time I'd ask how he's feeling? He always responded with a positive attitude, even when I could clearly see he was suffering. I can only imagine how difficult it was on him and his family to deal with this altering living situation while battling for his life. I hope he found a little piece in knowing that portion was taken care of. The reason I started this fund, is to help Janell and the rest of the family try and alleviate at least little portion of the financial burden that will be put upon the family. This family is so incredibly deserving of any help you can provide, no amount is to small, whether it's $5, $20, $100 or more. Please help this loving Van Motman Family...
