Timoteo a friend and a brother

Hello Everyone, As many of you may know, the life of Timothy Joel Kamunga aka Timo Teo, was cut short on the evening of August 11, 2018, as we was walking home on 414 in Hector, NY. How do you put into words the life of one man’s outgoing personality, spirit, and soul that changed the lives of so many in our community? My family and I alone cannot begin to describe the life and the story's that was Timo Teo. He became the man he was from the individuals he met as well as the community that surrounded him. Timo Teo may not have been born in Hector, but he lived as though Hector was his home and the people were his family. So now I ask you for my immediate family, where over the last 5 years he has become more than just a friend, where he became family. A brother to myself as well as my brother and sister, and a son to my mother. If you could donate anything, from your time, your money, or just a shoulder to lean on in these hard times. Any small contribution would be greatly appreciated. All donations will go to funeral expenses and his family back in Africa. I will end this by saying “Thank you,” in advance to everyone that has donated, and a big “Thank you,” to my mom who let a young man from Africa into her home and showed him an unbreakable bond that is the love of a family. “One love” “Respect” – Timothy Joel Kamunga Thank you, Jake Duncan All of the funds will be going into an account and I will be withdrawing them and applying them to Tim's funeral headstone and bills any money left over will be going to his family and nephew for his college tuition via MoneyGram Maria Tim's sister will be handling the funds form there. Thank you so much for the donations and support.
