Eddie Van Halen‘s wife Janie Van Halen has announced the tragic death of her dance partner Louie’s father, and the launch of a GoFundMe with a $15,000 goal. Eddie Van Halen’s wife announced sad ‘weight gain’ in a photo earlier this week.
She said, “My dance partner’s dad passed away unexpectedly 😔 Please, if you can, donate so he and his family can bring their dad home. Thank you for your help ❤️ Louie Sr. Martinez.”
The GoFundMe states, “Family & friends our father has unexpectedly passed away yesterday in Washington and we are trying to raise the funds to bring him home to Santa Maria and lay him to rest peacefully in his home town so please we are asking for your help with anything you can donate please Thank you in advance from his children Lisa & Louie Jr. Martinez God bless.”
An update was also offered, “Thank You so much everyone for opening up your heart to our family, We are so very grateful for your donations, thoughts, prayers and energy. Please keep sharing and holding us up in your prayers.”
Melody donated and wrote, “Wish I could give more. Let the Blessed Virgin de Guadalupe bring comfort to your family as she holds your father in her arms today. Peace be with you and your spirit.”
Donna said, “I am so pleased to help a wonderful guy who has helped so many. Deepest condolences to you and your family.” Steve wrote, “I am sorry to hear of your loss. My deepest condolences to you and yours, indeed.” Eddie Van Halen’s wife revealed a ‘coughing’ photo last week.
