Keaton Coffey Memorial Fund

1 Comment

On May 24th, our community lost one of it's own in Afghanistan. Cpl. Keaton Coffey (USMC) was killed in action while assisting Special Forces operations.  Keaton was weeks away from returning to his fiancée and new life in Oregon.  He was the only son of Inger and Grant Coffey, a retired Portland Fire Battalion Chief.  Many community members have asked how they can support the Coffey family.  To honor the sacrifice of one who gave all for his country and preserve his memory, contributions can be made to the Keaton Coffey scholarship and memorial.   Donations to the Keaton Coffey Memorial Fund (Tax ID# 26-2206115) are completely tax deductible.
Damascus Christian School, 14251 SE Rust Way Damascus, OR 97089 (503)-658-4100, has offered to be a collection point for donations. Additionally, Surf Bear Coffee Shop at 19880 OR Hwy 212 has offered to donate its day's proceeds in Keaton's memory on July 26th.  Please stop by if you get a chance.

Hello Grant & Ingred,
Oh how we were joyfully amazed & blessed beyond words to meet you in Walla Walla WA last week. Our Lord and Savior had this appointed time "such as this" for our hearts & souls to meet at White House Crawford. OH YES HE IS WATCHING and KEEPING US in such AMAZIMG ways . . . even when we feel insignificant and some how "lost" in our pain ! We are so proud of your journey and legacy you are living while you share the heart of Keaton. HE IS STILL VERY MUCH APART of MANY here on earth and WILL ALWAYS BE dear Ingrid & Grant : ) : )
So, please put us on your email information to remain updated
on the events that honor God & YOUR KEATON. ( I will guess his middle name is Grant .. . ? : ) What a strong name that Keaton
lived out as a champion for his Lord and ALL TO SEE !
Just wanted to say hello again and MAY you Keaton and Greg are together sharing stories of the wonderful Coffey family . . . greatly about you two . ..
PS ~ I can hardly wait to stop in Surf Bear Coffee SHop one day and join in others who know and love the Coffey's : )
