A local community is rallying around a heartbroken bride-to-be and grieving family who were left devastated by a young father’s death in Alabama.

Corey Chapman and his fiancé, Melinda Estes, went shopping last month to look at upgrading her engagement ring. A day later, his life was tragically cut short by a head-on collision in west Jefferson County.

Now, his loved ones are raising money for his grieving family and his funeral expenses. A GoFundMe fundraiser organized by John Rivers shares this message:

On 6/11/18 Corey Chapman of Alabama was tragically killed in a car wreck. His Father Ron Chapman and Step Mother Tracy reside in the Nashville area. Ron works for Mannington Mills as a Residential District Manager in the Midwest Region. Among several other Family members Corey also has a 1 1/2 year old Son Rush.
As you can imagine this unexpected tragedy has devastated this family.
In support of The Chapman Family we would like to help any way we can to ease the financial stress this unexpected tragedy has brought.

Any help you can give no matter how small will be a help.
