We are raising funds for the funeral and family of Kutin Gyimah. We are hoping to cover not only funeral expenses but support living expense and an educational future for his four children.
He was one of our cab drivers who worked honestly and tirelessly to support his family.
All through the worst days of the pandemic he was one of the few who still drove a cab continuously to provide support for our city and its citizens. Please help honor him, his work and help his family.
He was a husband and a father of 4 children ages 8, 7, 5 and 3. He will not be coming home anymore.

A yellow taxi driver died after a beatdown by passengers who tried to rob him in Queens, police and sources said.
The deadly assault took place around 6:30 a.m. Saturday at Beach 54th Street and Arverne Boulevard, authorities said.
Cops responding to an assault in progress found the 52-year-old driver lying in the road with “trauma to the back of his head,” the NYPD said.
EMS transported the victim to St. John’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The NYPD said a preliminary investigation revealed the 52-year-old was operating an NYC taxi minivan with multiple passengers. When he went to drop off the passengers, “they tried to rob him,” an NYPD spokesman said.
The victim chased after them, and was struck by multiple passengers, which caused him to fall and strike his head, the spokesman continued.
Police sources said the driver was beaten by three men and two women and the fatal assault was captured on video.
