The Rev. Daniel Patz of Faith Baptist Church says the Quasarano family “wanted to live their lives for Jesus.”

Heather and Leonard Quasarano were found dead last Sunday at their Fenton Township home, along with their four children, ages 2 to 11.

Investigators believe they were overcome by carbon monoxide from a generator running inside the home during a power outage.
