Man loses wife and two kids in fatal accident; appeals for burial funds

Ruby Agbemetsi and her kids killed in an accident

A man whose wife and two children were killed in a car accident Wednesday, July 24th, 2019 around 4:17pm about 6 miles north of Palestine in Anderson County is appealing for funds for the burial ceremony of his family.

The appeal was made by one Mr Charles Boadu on Sunday, 28th July 2019, on GoFundMe.

His request comes after the car in which Mr Richard Agbemetsi’s wife and kids were in went off the road and hit a tree.

“Please let’s help Mr Agbemetsi Richard with the funeral expenses.” The post said.

Agbemetsi’s wife Ruby Kwame, 34-years-old, was pronounced dead at the scene and his 4-year-old girl and 2-year-old boy were taken to Palestine Regional Medical Center, where they were later pronounced dead.

The 8-month-old daughter also was transported to PRMC where she remains in stable condition.

Report indicated that until Ruby's death, she was an employee of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (Gurney Unit) and the husband Richard Agbemetsi still works for the agency at Powledge Unit.

The ‘Go Fund Me’ target has been set to an amount of $50,000 and this is said, would help Mr Richard Agbemetsi with the funeral expenses as well as cater for the 8-months-old baby left behind by the late wife.
