About this fundraiser

We are raising funds to pay for my father's, Keith R. Sheffield Sr.'s, funeral. My Dad was affectionately know as "Master Gunns 💪 ," short for MGYSGT. He was a serviceman for the United States Marines Corp. and served his country faithfully and with honor. Unfortunately, the military only offers up to $700 to pay for the funeral service, and that is not enough. My dad's passing has left a vast void in all our hearts. And receiving news from the military about what they will pay for has added undue hardship upon our grief.


My Dad retired honorably and was a hard working man. He loved his family, he loved his country and he enjoyed his work. He leaves behind a wife, 7 children, 9 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. He also leaves behind a few dear animals, one of which was by his side during his last hours. 


Please find the breakdown of funds. We are honored to be transparent with all our loved ones and friends in regards to what we need. We thank you for your contribution to the funeral of my dear father. And we want to let you know that any amount, no matter how small or great, it is, a big help and blessing for us. We pray that you are blessed through your giving for your love and generosity has helped our family through the most difficult time in our lives.
