The White family of Canyon Country is asking the Santa Clarita Valley community for help.
“On Monday, August 26, 2013, our friend and loving husband and father, Robert White, was suddenly and unexpectedly taken from this world,” said Todd Reinhold on the “Bobby White Memorial Fund” GoFundMe website page.
Reinhold has created a page for White’s memorial fund on GoFundMe, a website where people can raise money for many things including weddings, memorials, and vacations.
“In these difficult economic times we are ALL experiencing, his family was not prepared for such an untimely and catastrophic event in their lives,” he said. “With Bobby earning the majority of the family’s income and no insurances in place, they are in desperate need of our immediate help to cover funeral costs and to help lighten the coming burdens they will be experiencing in the very near future.”
In the past three days, the community has raised $3,470.00 of the $10,000.00 goal. More than 50 people have donated. The donations have ranged between $10 to $250.
“He was a kind and thoughtful person and will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him,” Reinhold said. “He leaves behind a devoted wife, two great boys, and a daughter who need our love and support now more than ever. “
The website address is http://www.gofundme.com/43ljgc. There, people can donate any amount they want. The webpage can also be shared on several social networking websites including Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
“Please use this site to help this broken family in their time of need,” Reinhold said. “No donation is too small and all proceeds will go directly to the family. Thank you for your support.”
