The sudden death of a father and husband has friends in the North Okanagan rallying to support the family left behind.
A GoFundMe campaign has been launched for Lumby’s Trina Dekker and her young children, following the sudden passing of her husband, Adam Dekker, on Monday, June 12.
Adam worked as a Class 1 driver for various equipment and/or moving companies. Trina is an LPN nurse currently on maternity leave. The couple have two children, Natalie, three, and Danny, one. Adam has a daughter, Rowyn, nine, from a previous relationship.
As of Thursday, June 15, $14,360 had been donated toward a goal of $25,000.
“As you can imagine, a sudden passing brings on unexpected costs and questions around support for Trina and the kids in the future,” said campaign organizer Nichoel Crawford. “All funds raised will go to Trina to ease her financial burden while navigating through this unimaginably challenging time.”
The Dekker family deeply appreciates all support.
