It is with great regret that we even ask for this assistance.

Hamilton Marufu who was so dear to us as a friend, brother, son and teammate is no longer with us. Hamilton passed away in San Antonio,  with the details of his death to be shared by his loved ones when they are ready. This page is to raise funds to help his beloved family with the logistics of sending his body back home to Zimbabwe. The body will be sent back to be buried in his home land, by his family, so we would like to collect funds by the end of the day of Monday 30th of July .  There is a fee to send the deceased overseas as well as the plane ticket on top of that. We are aiming to raise as close to $10,000 as possible which would be a great deal of help to the Marufu family. Thabani Mujeni and myself, Lungi Tshuma,  will be sending off this money to the family as soon as we can. Mr John Moyana will be the assigned beneficiary. He is a close family friend of the Marufu Family and will be in San Antonio making preparations to take the body home. 

Thank you all for your kindness and for any connection you may have had with Hamilton when he lived. He truly was a large soul that affected us with any interaction.  Keep his family and friends in your prayers and thoughts.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone that made this possible. The overwhelming gratitude the Marufu family is feeling cannot be put into words. Hamilton will rest in peace in his home and land.
The Burial will be tomorrow on Sunday, 19th August, 3pm Zimbabwe time (8am CT).


There will be another service held for him on the 6th of September at Lindenwood University if you wish to attend.


God Bless you all

Kind People,

Mr Moyana a close family friend of the Marufus and the designated beneficiary of the funds, is currently in San Antonio about to meet with the funeral homes. When he is approved as the beneficiary , he will be using the funds to pay the costs to send Hamilton home to Zimbabwe.

As he awaits documents and making preparations, we want to thank you for your continued support. It is overwhelming and an immense help to the cause. We will keep you informed as to when the body is Leaving the United States.

Love to you all.

Thank you to everyone who has shown overwhelming support to this initiative and to the Marufu family. It will be tough to wait for the body to come home to Zimbabwe, but the support that has been shown is nothing short of an incredible sentiment that is deeply appreciated.

It takes up to two weeks for a deceased body to reach Zimbabwe taking into account preparations. We have reached our estimated target within 24hours, any money added will be directed towards all other funeral preps. It just goes to show the impact Hamilton had on us in this world. Please continue to keep the Marufu family , friends and yourselves in prayer.


Thank you.
