Help Military son make his fathers dream come true
Organized by: Quincy Westbrook
EVENT DATE May 01, 2015
First of all I'd just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time out of your day to read this. My name is Quincy Westbrook I am a disabled Vet and this is a long shot it seems but I'm determined to do what it takes to give my father and myself something we would love and cherish forever.
The purpose of this fundraiser is after 26 years of raising me I NEED to say thank you in more ways than I could even imagine. My father has never asked for anything in his entire life. My goal is to be able to raise the funds to purchase a vehicle like his very first pride and joy that he purchased as a teenager; that being a 1968/1969 C-10 Short Bed for a project that we can spend our nights working on. Something that would become OUR project as father and son allowing us to get closer to each other - and when the time comes I will pass it down to my son.
My fathers first vehicle.. the 1968-1969 Chevrolet C-10 short bed truck in which he has always been in love with. He gave it up to raise myself and my soon to be sister on the way who passed shortly after her birth. He worked 2 jobs nearly 18 hours a day to make sure his family had food in our stomach and a roof over our heads. He is the most wonderful kind hearted man. He never asks for anything and would give you the shirt off his back in a heart beat.. This man has done more than words could explained and given up so much for himself to ensure a better life for myself and the family. We did not have an easy life growing up, missing vehicle payments just so I could have a Christmas present.. He never once complained and was there by my side doing absolutely everything he could to ensure I was successful in life and grew to be the man I am today. He taught me the difference in right and wrong, yes sir, no sir, and never hurt anybody in his life..
I decided to join the military to make sure I could grow into the man he was teaching me to be when I was 20 years old. I have been Active Duty military for 6 years as an F-16 Jet Mechanic. He has literally done everything and anything he could to ensure the people around him including me were loved and taken care of. He is a man of few words - but when he does speak .. The whole room will shut up and hang on to every word he has to say. His wisdom and kindness towards all is absolutely unable to put in words..
I wish I had the ability to repay him for everything and creating me into the man today. It is amazing that after losing my sister at such a young age he was our ROCK. He kept our family together and hopefully one day I could be at least half the man he is. You will never meet such a kind, loving, soft spoken, and caring individual.
After spending years in the military and people say that I am a hero.. I quitely think to myself "no way".. My father is the real Hero - I couldn't even hold a candle to the things he's been through.
I'm very much praying there was some kind hearted and wonderful people that could help the one and only thing I've ever heard him talk about/want in his entire life besides ensuring his family is taken care of.. and that I grow into an incredible human being which I strive for every day...
Please help me make this dream come true for him.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
God Bless you all.
