Eric Acheampong's Funeral Expenses

In the wake of an unexpected and heartbreaking loss, we come together to honor the life and memories of Eric Acheampong. Eric, a 59-year-old family man, met a tragic end to his life just three weeks after his return to Ghana. The heart-wrenching incident unfolded as he was driving past a gas station in Aboabogya, Ashanti Region. A gang of armed men unleashed a merciless attack, claiming his life in an act of violence that has left our community in profound shock and grief.

Eric’s untimely departure has left a void in the hearts of those who knew him. As a loving husband, cherished father, and devoted member of the First Ghana Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the Bronx, NY, Eric’s impact resonated far beyond his immediate community. His journey from Kumasi, Ghana, to the United States reflected not only his personal success but also his unwavering commitment to building connections and making a positive difference in the lives of others. Eric’s generosity and kindness knew no bounds, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him.

Given that Eric’s funeral is set to take place in Ghana, it’s important to consider international logistics and associated costs. In this challenging time, we’re asking friends, family, and those close to Eric to help out. We need support for the investigation into Eric’s passing, his funeral costs, travel expenses, and safety arrangements for his family. We’re also organizing memorial services. Your help means a lot and will ease the burden on Eric’s immediate family and ensure Eric receives the dignified farewell he deserves.
