Junior Leota Family

$29,710 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 149 people in 8 months
Created May 30, 2018
Our beloved Junior Leota was swept away in the Chatanika river outside of Fairbanks, AK on May 25th while riding on an atv. He has touched so many lives and brought joy to everyone around him. Junior was simply such a good guy.... too good. As his family and those around him face this incredibly difficult time and the tough costs that go with it, please consider donating what you can to help support them and show your love.

You all have been so generous and we wanted to let you know that all these donations are helping with funeral expenses, travel for family for the funeral, to help Danielle with her future and the kids future. She is feeling relieved that she doesn't have to worry about finances for awhile. As for the search this weekend, please contact Ron Ashcraft for details on what is still needed. We are praying to find Junior quickly. Thank you again for your support.

I wanted to update you all on the status at Olnes Pond. Last Saturday we had eight boats and a lot of help looking in the river. The river went down, just not enough. A few more people are headed out tonight in boats to search. Please continue to call Ron Ashcraft if you would like to help in the search efforts.
Thank you for your generous donations to the Leota Memorial fund. Danielle is overwhelmed with gratitude to you all.

A message to you from Danielle:
For those of you interested in continuing the search for Junior Leota we welcome any and all help. If you have access to a boat please contact Ron Ashcraft and he can give more direction. Because the river is lowering we are still in need of people to walk along the river bank and check debris, crevices, etc. We ask that as always you put safety first, do not go out alone, make sure you have food, water, boots or waders, and anything else needed for the outdoors. Feel free to search whenever you are able too. If you have a couple hours to go out we would greatly appreciate it. We are trying to document the efforts put forth so Please contact Ron Ashcraft if you are heading out on your own. You will also be able to get the details needed in order to search. Thank you all. I have felt your love and prayers tremendously these past few days.
