Help Fleck Recover From His Stroke


As you might know, Don had a stroke on Thursday, January 28th. He had a deep brain bleed which has affected the movement of the left side of his body. Thankfully, this has not changed his witty personality! This will keep him out of work for the foreseeable future. Everyone was hoping he would be discharged home when he is able to leave the hospital. However, due to the level of care he needs, that is no longer an option. Living on the third floor with 50 stairs also poses its own problems. Anyone who knows Fleck knows how much he loves his home and the industry we work in. We hope this GoFundMe will help to raise the funds to help cover some of the cost of his rehab while continuing to pay the monthly bills until he can get home. We all know how strong this man is. He is a fighter and we know he will pull through this, but there comes a time when you need to ask for help.


Update: Fleck is being transferred to Vanderbilt Rehab in Newport, RI. They are talking about it being for 3 weeks at this point. He is not thrilled about it, but he is happy to be alive and getting the help he needs. Thank you all for your generous donations and prayers!

If you would like to reach out to Don, you can send him an email at or on Facebook at
