Stephen Gudknecht was killed in September during a robbery at Chili's in DeWitt. The loss has been extremely hard for his family. Stephen is survived by his parents and his children, along with other family members.
Nancy Ruff Chappell, Stephen's mother, reached out to the community for support. She on social media she wanted to have memory quilts made from Stephen Gudknecht's favorite T-shirts - a quilt for each of his kids: 14-year-old Adrianna and 9-year-old Nikolaus.
The community responded- offering to make them. Chappell expresses her gratitude to everyone that has reached out- it truly has made a huge impact.
