The organizing committee and friends are fundraising to help with the funeral expenses of Patrick Lumumba Lidonde who passed away on 1/1/2022 while undergoing treatment at Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts USA.
Patrick was a loving man and was very valued in the community. He worked for many years at Polar Beverages and was a blessing to many people who needed beverages for various events as he would often provide these drinks.
Patrick is survived by his wife Janet Achieng Lidonde, his children; Cindy, Patrick Jr. Tia, Tamara, Tori, Christian and Marsha "Moraa".
Siblings: Grace (Lidonde) Alubaka, Abdi Lidonde and his wife Grace (Gathoni) Lidonde, Gladys Ndoli Lidonde, Kennedy Lidonde and his wife Sarah (Kasenge) Lidonde, Rachel (Lidonde) Lumadede, Doris (Lidonde) Mosbrucker and her husband Martin, Armstrong Lidonde and his wife Jackie Kwarula Lidonde, Lydiah (Lidonde) Okoth and her husband Booker and Felicia "Diana"(Lidonde) Njoroge and her husband Kenneth, and cousin Rosemary Munde of Worcester.
He has also left behind his former wife Susan "Sue" Obiero.
Patrick is also predeceased by: Brother-in-laws Ben Asher Alubaka and Kennedy Lumadede.
Patrick's wish was to be buried in his native home of Kenya and as such, there is a budget of $30,000 to send his body home and to fund the funeral costs. We are appealing to friends and family to assist us in raising the money to meet the transportation and funeral costs.
God bless you as you consider our humble request.
