A fundraising site has been established to help defray funeral and related expenses for a 37-year-old father of three who died Monday in a crash on I-75.
Tim Dub of Clinton Township is remembered as a devoted husband to his wife, Carla, and proud and doting father to Anthony, Gino and Lana and “ the man in the room with the biggest smile and often the loudest, most infectious laugh, and the friend who wouldn't need to be asked twice if you needed his help.”
Dub died at the scene of a crash at 5:28 a.m. Monday in the northbound lane of I-75.
The GiveForward fundraising effort had raised $10,395 of a $12,000 goal by Thursday morning.
“If you knew Tim, you'd also know that his first concern would be for the future welfare of his cherished family, his concern for the stresses and expenses a funeral produces, and the worries of his family's transition into single income territory,” wrote friends who established the site.
“As friends and family, we can understand the grief, and grieve ourselves – but as friends and family, we can also help in a most solid and comforting way – by donating whatever you can to help Carla and the family defray these costs.”
Visitation is from 2-9 p.m. both Friday and Saturday at Lee-Ellena Funeral Home, 46530 Romeo Plank, Macomb Township. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
