Ben Swai’s Funeral

A son, brother and father, Ben was always so full of life and energy. He was a true friend. He just turned 46. He suddenly passed on Sunday, September 16, 2018 at his home in Springfield, Missouri. He is survived by his son Andre (17). His family needs your support to fly Ben home to Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania for burial.

My name is Ludovick Jacob from Washington DC and Ben was my older brother. I have traveled to Springfield Missouri and working with Funeral Director & Embalmer, Maddy Davis, at Herman H. Lohmeyer Funeral Home (417 [phone redacted]). They have been very helpful with the arrangements for Ben’s upcoming funeral service, transportation of the body to Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania and all related activities. The funds raised will all go towards the transportation and burial of Ben. I intend to close the campaign upon reaching the goal. My family and I are humbled and grateful for your prayers and support!
