Joe Gurkey Obituary, Death –The unexpected passing of Joe Gurkey has left a void in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. Tragically, on August 31, 2023, Joe Gurkey passed away at his home in Chelsea, Michigan, leaving behind a loving wife, Alyssa, and their three cherished children: Jack, Grace, and Kate. Joe’s sudden departure has sent shockwaves through his family, friends, and the entire community.
Joe was not just a husband and father; he was a devoted protector of his family. His love and dedication to Alyssa and their children knew no bounds. He was a pillar of strength and support, always ready to lend a helping hand and provide a sense of security to those he cared about.
In the wake of this heart-wrenching loss, Joe’s friends have come together to create this fundraiser to support Alyssa and her children during this difficult time. The funds raised will help cover funeral expenses, assist Alyssa as she transitions to a new life without her beloved husband, and provide financial support for the educational opportunities that lie ahead for their children. Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a meaningful difference in easing the burden that Alyssa and her family now face.
In addition to this online campaign, there will also be a spaghetti dinner fundraiser on Friday, September 22nd, from 5-8 pm at St. Mary’s of Chelsea. Donations in support of the dinner can be made through this GoFundMe campaign or via Venmo.
The outpouring of love, support, and generosity from the community serves as a testament to the impact Joe Gurkey had on the lives of those around him. His memory will forever be cherished, and his spirit will continue to shine through the love and unity of his family and friends. Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
