Walt Pursell Funeral Fund

It is with a very heavy heart that I write,  as many may already know, I tragically lost my brother Walt Pursell on the evening of Sunday, July 2, 2017.  Walt had the biggest heart that we have ever known, was always willing to help in any way he could with a smile on his face, and touched many lives along the way.  To say the least, to know Walt was to love him!  He was a very loving and dedicated son to his mother, Dorothy Pursell, brother to his sisters Diann Heiss & Susan Wiater and brother, Thomas Pursell, father to his two children, Walt and Brenda Pursell and grandfather to four grandchildren, Benito, Jayden, Johanna and Chase.  He is also survived by many additional loving family members including his many neices, nephews and the friends that he took in as family along the way.

I could not have been blessed with a kinder or more caring older brother, he was not only the father that I never had, but also my best friend.  I feel in my heart that he should be shown the love, dignity and respect that he deserves when we say "see you later".

Unfortuantely, the family was not prepared for Walt's untimely and very tragic accidental passing.  He did not have any insurance or financial means to assist in covering any of the expenses related to his funeral and burial.  Any contributions would be greatly appreciated by the family to ensure that we can give him an appropriate send off until we see him again.

We will post updates and any additional information as it becomes available.

Thank you for thoughts, prayers and support during this very difficult time for our family!
