“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases” – Lamentations 3:22


Those are the words guiding the Fink family through this dark time.  On January 2, 2017, tragedy struck the Fink household.  Joshua Fink suddenly, and unexpectedly, died of natural causes.  He was just 36 years old. He leaves behind his wife Kelly and young children: twin daughters Kayleigh and Grace age 9 and son Caleb age 6.

On top of the overwhelming emotional challenges, they also face significant financial challenges.  There is a fund set up dedicated to meet their financial needs.  You can help Kelly and the children through this difficult time by contributing to the fund.  Monies collected will be used for the family’s immediate needs including big ticket items such as mortgage payments and health care coverage. Below are a few options you can use to make a donation.   (Please note: donations are not tax deductible).

Josh was a God fearing man and his faith was evident in the way he lived his life and raised his family. He was a hard working man and did everything he could to provide for his family. Josh was kind and caring. He loved spending time with his family and playing with his children; especially letting them climb all over him like a human tree. He was a member of Cross of Christ Lutheran Church in Bloomfield Hills. Josh was a previous Bible study leader for IV and a current den leader of Caleb’s Boy Scout Troop through Trinity Lutheran Church. He enjoyed playing and watching football, golfing, tennis, and playing video games with his kids. Josh was very competitive at everything he did. He kept up on all things involving technology and loved to tinker around with it. Josh was an excellent cook; had exceptional grilling skills; and could use a smoker like a pro. He will be greatly missed.
