Wilsonville Drunk Driving Tragedy

Raised by 75 people in 4 months
Chris Kelleher, a former Navy Veteran who served on the USS Kitty Hawk in 1980-84 was a great husband, father, grandfather and friend. Although Chris struggled at times with homelessness he was always willing to give the shirt off his back regardless if he needed it himself.  On January 5, 2018 Chris  was bringing supplies to his friends at a homeless camp when he was hit and killed by a repeat drunk driver. He leaves behind his three children, his first grandson and his wife Gina Kelleher who was with him at the time of the accident. Gina was diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier this year after having a stroke. Chris was her sole provider and care taker. With Chris now gone and Gina unable to work, we are asking for donations to help provide for her remaining years. Your support is so greatly appreciated. https://patch.com/oregon/wilsonville/drunk-driver-kills-wilsonville-man-front-his-wife-sheriff http://www.kgw.com/news/crime/suspected-drunk-driver-hits-kills-wilsonville-man/505372040 http://www.oregonlive.com/clackamascounty/index.ssf/2018/01/accused_duii_driver_kills_man.html http://www.ktvz.com/news/accused-drunk-driver-arrested-after-wilsonville-fatal-crash/682926849 http://www.mycolumbiabasin.com/2018/01/06/wilsonville-man-killed-by-drunk-driver/ http://koin.com/2018/01/05/man-arrested-for-duii-after-hitting-man-in-shoulder/ http://katu.com/news/local/family-man-hit-and-killed-by-drunk-driver-was-delivering-supplies-for-homeless-people-chris-kelleher-kenneth-lloyd-pepperling
