Josh Shafer's Memorial Fund

$2,652 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 9 months
Joshua Keith Shafer, brave philosopher of life, left our world too soon on Friday May 12, 2017.  A long time resident of Red Wing, MN - Josh made friends throughout Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Colorado as life took him on many journeys.  Josh loved hiking, biking, epic road trips, music, and art, but most importantly spending time with his friends and family.   Over the last year, Josh had been working hard and with success to create new dreams and goals focused on his devotion to his son.  It is a loss to us all for his spirit to leave us so suddenly. I have set up this Go Fund Me to assist with memorial services and end of life costs associated with Josh's passing.  Your financial support offers the opportunity for us to give all of our continued love to Josh.  As his sister, I am taking care of his arrangements and appreciate your honoring Josh in this way.   We are looking forward to connecting as Josh's family and friends at the coming memorial service to share memories of Josh. We thank you all for the support, encouragement and hope you offered to Josh in his journey with you.  We appreciate you honoring him with your continued gifts today.

Times like these remind us that we should make sure you let your loved ones know how much they really mean to us. I only knew you for a short time Josh, but you were a beautiful soul. You would've given the shirt off your back for someone even if that was the only shirt up had. You will always be remembered as a amazing human being. And I know that your son understands how much he meant to you. Your family is in my thoughts. May you rest peacefully my friend.
