Ken Leftwich Funeral Fund

I am writing to implore all that know Ken Leftwich, to provide him and his family with the resources to offset funeral costs that loom on the horizon.   Ken Leftwich was a former City Councilmember of Petersburg, VA.  Although he currently resides in Greensboro, NC,  he deeply loved his family, friends and the Petersburg community. 

Ken is a long-time best friend and was the best man in my wedding, as I was in his.  Ken will be sorely missed by his family.  He is survived by his wife, Sylvia, as well as his daughters Kendra, Kofye, and son Kenny. 

For nearly 37 years, he was an outstanding ambassador for Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity ,Inc.  He has long been a devoted fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that should not be held against him too intensely.

It is with great sadness that I must inform everyone that his transitioning is imminent.  He will be taken off of life support on tomorrow, January 20, 2018.  Your generous support will help to offset internment expenses for his lovely family as he enters in to what we Alpha's reverently refer to as the Omega [meaning last] chapter.

Again, thank you for your generous support of this amazing, humorous, kind, giving, humble, gracious, God loving son of Petersburg, Virginia.
