Were $646 short of making the set donation goal of $2,500 amount that we need to pay the remaining left on the funeral expenses that we couldn't get financed. Please share and if you can only give $5, 10 or more thats ok every little bit is going to get closer to our goal. But the time clock is running out. This is not a go fund me account. This is a fund the funeral and strictly for this and goes directly to the funeral home. We have nothing to do with the set amount or any part of the donation its all handle by the funeral director/owner. Help us make our goal before his funeral tomorrow at 10 am. So we need to closer to our goal otherwise I have to find that money tree to pay the rest at time of his funeral. I am already in debt with this funeral expenses from the funeral expenses.

I am the wife of William Davis for 32 yrs and been together all together almost 35 yrs it would been 35 yrs in July. :( We have to young adults with disabilities who I am there legal guardian even though they are William (Willy) age 24 IT college Student at Matc, and daughter Marie age 21, currently in high school and currently working as project search intern at the airport for her last year of high school. We were just talking about going to both our kids graduation in May 2019 plus 2nd one for our daughter will be in project search graduation in May 2019. Now its hard to know he won't be there in the physical sense. We were not ready for this event to happen. Nobody really is? We had no pre funerals arrangements we don't have life insurance either. Living on social security income really doesn't prepare for this expense. We had to take a loan out for big part of the funeral arrangements but fell short due only got approved for certain amount. Now have another bill to add to our monthly budget. Social security only gives you $255 lump sum. I have already called them and informed them of his death on the day he passed. He died at home which makes it harder on us. Our kids where here when this occurred and my son performed CPR for the first time in his life while I was on phone with 911. We still in shock he is gone! Never expected this coming we knew he was sick but he was refusing to go the dr or er. We begged him to go his answer was clearly NO! He was a stubborn man when it come to getting help when he needs. He had many health issues and he was suppose to have a lung bronchoscopy the day after xmas but he refused to do it. They been seeing lung nodules on the ct scans for awhile now. Why he needed to have this done and get a biopsy as well. Now they are still trying to figure out his cause of death. Now my beloved husband Bill is with his best friend Max (one in the photo) together again.
Thanks for any help you can give us. We appreciate your help.
We only have until the date of the funeral Wed Jan 16, 2019 to raise the remaining set donation goal.

Remember to share the link by clicking on the photo and then it will take them directly then click on donation, also hit on Facebook share button.

Thanks for sharing and if you can't donate that is ok too but every little bit helps, $10, 20, etc just have to get this goal met before tomorrow at 10 am. Please help us get the rest of the balance so we can give our husband/dad a nice funeral tomorrow.

John Savin La Fleur Jr.
6/17/1952 - 12/2/2018
John Savin La Fleur, Jr., 66, of Columbia, slept into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, December 2, 2018, at Boone Hospital Center in Columbia. John Savin La Fleur, Jr. was born on June 17, 1952, in Alexandria, LA to the late John Savin La Fleur, Sr. and Juanita La Fleur. He was the second eldest of 11 children, raised in Detroit, MI, where he attended St. Andrew’s & Benedict School, as well as, schools in the Detroit Public School system. Later, John went on to pursue a career in Auto Mechanical Repair, obtaining his certification, becoming talented in multiple areas of expertise. Eventually, John moved from Detroit, MI to Columbia, MO in the mid 1980’s, making it his permanent home. John’s tremendous love, passion, and thrill of race cars was undeniable to anyone that was blessed to know him. Throughout his career, he demonstrated his creativity and built many notable cars from scratch. However, we all know that two of them, “Goofy” and “Christine” were especially dear to him, being his all time favorites. John had an amazing, charismatic personality with an infectious laugh which touched everyone he met. John’s humor and generosity allowed him to make fast friends with anyone and to develop friendships that endured through time. John spent the majority of his life self- employed, and as a proud owner of multiple auto repair shops in Columbia throughout the years. John’s auto shops were more than a business to him and to countless others; they were a safe place to relax, enjoy his hilarious jokes, to partake in amazing BBQ and endless conversation. Truly, John touched the lives of all that were fortunate enough to know and to love him. John leaves his devoted wife, Marsha Hayes- La Fleur to celebrate and cherish his memories. John’s remarkable compassion and kind heart enabled him to share an unconditional fatherly love by birth or marriage with 7 children: Janel La Fleur of Detroit, MI, Kwame (Felecia) Baines of St. Louis, MO, Reginald (Cherish) Hayes, Damone Hayes both of Columbia, MO, Rahdika (Tristan) Swann of Stafford, VA, Ladonna Redden of San Antonio, TX, Daruis Hayes and his precious baby girl, J’na Hayes both of Columbia, Mo. Lovingly, he was the proud grandfather of 19 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. John also leaves to celebrate and cherish his memories, 6 sisters, Patricia Frierson of Las Vegas, NV, Mary Metcalf, Juanita Jackson, Deitra (Samuel) Crawford, all of Detroit, MI, Margaret (Richard) Small of Tucson, AZ, and Yolonda Chatman of Detroit, MI, and 1 brother, Ronald La Fleur of Washington D.C. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, and many beloved friends to celebrate and cherish his memories. John joins his parents John and Juanita La Fleur, 2 sisters, Deborah Williams and Linda Harper, 2 brothers, Anthony and Paul La Fleur, and his oldest daughter Masean Gresham who preceded him in death into eternal life.
