On March 20, 2016, a residential structure fire occured in east Louisville where firefighters found a family of four inside: a husband, wife, and 2 children. Out of respect for the family of the deceased, I have not posted the names of the individuals. As a firefighter with the first responding department, we quickly found out that the deceased family is related to a fellow firefighter at a neighboring department in Louisville.

In an effort to help our fellow brother and the surviving family members, we are trying to raise money to help cover some of the expenses (funeral costs, expenses left behind, etc.). Money will be  combined with the Louisville Firefighters Local 345 GoFundMe account, then split between both the Hettinger and Gayheart families. 

All help is greatly appreciated! No donation is too big or too small!

Thanks in advance, and God bless!

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
-Matthew 5:4

Our final total raised from this GoFundMe account for the families was $2,777! Thank you to everyone who donated. It will all be greatly appreciated by the families in need. As of today, April 4, 2016, I will be ending the campaign and no longer accepting any more donations to the account.

Have a wonderful day!

God Bless

The families are beginning to get bills from the funeral homes, so I will be granting access to the families so that they can begin to withdraw the money.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for the continued support!

I never had the opportunity to meet the Hettinger family, however, upon seeing the pictures of Courtney and Collin from the article I realized that I had the pleasure of sitting behind them at mass on Sunday. I was deeply saddened to hear about this tragedy and I hope my donation helps the Hettinger relatives with anything they may need. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
