Paying Tribute to Ekerete Akpabio

My father, Ekerete Akpabio, lost his life to illness on November 10, 2020. My dad was an intelligent and charming man, with a warm laugh and a welcoming nature. Though my greatest wish was to have more time with him, I am glad that he has been freed from the suffering of his last days.

My greatest wish now is to honor his transition to the next life. This fund is being set up to help cover the cost of burial and funeral arrangements. Between funeral home services, cemetery space and casket costs, the estimated expense is $16,000.

Please help me raise money to give my father a respectful burial. We would like to bury him within the next 30 days. Given the time frame, and difficulties created by the pandemic, any financial assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated. You can also assist by sharing this appeal with others who may be able to help.

Ekerete Akpabio was a loving father, brother, uncle, and friend. Please help his family raise money to cover his burial expenses. 

Best wishes to you.
