Raising Money for Fallen Sheriff who Left Behind Pregnant Wife

The account has collected more than $600,000 for the Gutzwiller family as of today. To donate, click here.

Gutzwiller, 38, left behind a 2-year-old son and a wife who is three weeks away from delivering their second child.

“Our law enforcement community is in mourning and is asking for your donations for the family,” the fundraiser website states. “No amount of monies will make this tragedy right, but it will allow the people Damon cared about most to continue their lives without thoughts of financial issues. All monies donated will go directly to his family.”   Full details here on the Fall Sheriff’s fundraiser.
