On July 16, 2015, the Bock family experienced a tragedy when father, Paul Bock (51), unexpectedly passed at home alone while taking care of the household. He leaves behind his wife, Janet Bock (50); sons Peter (25) and Shaun (23) ; and their dog, Mitzie. Two months prior, the family moved into a new home with Paul's intention of having the family be together and to ensure that everyone was happy. Now that he is gone, the family is experiencing difficulty managing funds in the wake of this sudden passing. Please help the family find some solace in this difficult time through any contributions that can be made.

This is a very special family that always made time to spend with one another and this loss will forever change their family dynamic. As they mourn the loss of a truly great man who is loved by so many, please help alleviate the burden of moving on with bills, a mortgage, and expenses. Click here for more info.
