Spirit Life Church is asking for community support to help the family during this tragic time. They wrote in a Facebook post,
“Sometimes when loss happens it is all too difficult to comprehend. The deep sadness leaves us with a feeling of wanting and knowing we must do something to demonstrate our love and care. Kyle Imdieke passed away suddenly on May 6th, 2021. He was a beloved teacher and coach at Osakis High School. But more than that he was a father to three boys who lost their mother only a few short years ago. If you are able to give financially, we are giving an offering to Kyle’s sister that is for Kyle’s three boys Logan, Luke, and Drew. We are starting the giving with $1,000 from our church local missions funds. If you click on the link below there is a tab that says tithe, it’s a drop down where you can choose Imdieke Family.
