The friends of Doug and Katie Shropshire are attempting to raise money to help with raising the child of a father gone too soon!

Doug and Katie were married in 2009 and were blessed with the birth of their son Tyler shortly thereafter. Doug was a wonderful person with an unbreakable spirit. He was an exceptional athlete, son, brother, friend, husband, and father. He worked as an iron worker for 18 years. Doug passed away on April 29, 2012.

Since Doug's passing, his dedicated and hardworking wife, Katie Dimon Shropshire has struggled in supporting their son. This loss has emotionally wounded all of the many family and friends of Doug but Katie has had an overwhelming battle in also dealing with finding a way to support their son as a single parent.

Doug always tried to help others and had such a large and loving network of friends that I know in this time of need, when his wife and child need it most, we can come together to help!! When we lose someone we love so much it is difficult to emotionally cope. Katie has suffered an inurmountable amount of pain but to also have to deal with the many newfound financial burdens of being a single parent is unfathomable and unneccesary......because there are many who will always remember and love Doug, thus love Katie and Tyler as well.

The entire family needs your prayers. If you have any questions, or suggestions please feel free to send an e-mail to

All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!

Thank you all in advance for all of your generosity and thoughfulness!! - The friends and loved ones of the Shropshire family
