Dear Family & Friends,

An unexpected tragedy occured on Wednesday, August 9  2017, a  sudden loss of a father and son.  This heartbreak has left their family in an  extreme  state of anguish and sorrow. Duro Akil the son,  was the eldest of five siblings, and nurturing  leader to his endearing brothers and sister. Everyone who knew Duro loved his  upbeat spirit and peaceful nature. Being a father was one of his greatest achievements. He was an awesome and loving Dad. He cherished  his two daughters. His relationship with his mother Adio Akil, was one of admiration and respect, he was a devoted son. 

Okera  Ras I the father, was the youngest of three childeren and a father of five. He was a cultural custodian of  Afrocentric tradtions  including  Kwanzaa, Khamitic  and natural healing practices.  As a dedicated father, Okera  supported his children  unconditonally and always provided a listening ear. In the community, Okera always gave to others  with a smile and nurturing spirit. His selfless nature was a benefit to many. Okera was the man behind the scenes that put everything together.

Your contribution is needed to help honor these two amazing men. The family is requesting your support for their homegoing service. This fund is going directly to help pay the funeral costs and other financial challenges the famiy will still face. Thank you in advance  for your genersoity and love.
