Mutombo Family & Crowder College grieving

Updated:

Neosho, MO – The family of Hugues Kazadi Mutombo along with Crowder College is grieving the loss of a “good brother”.

Mutombo came to Crowder from the Democratic Republic of Congo, in January 2012 to pursue a degree in Biology/Pre-Nursing. He was an exemplary student achieving recognition twice on the Dean's List. Mutombo had already obtained his CNA certification. His nurturing nature is what lead him to study to become a CNA and continue to pursue a nursing degree.

His family and friends shared memories of his joking, compassionate and easy-going nature while expressing their gratitude for having him as a sibling and friend.

“He is a wonderful man and we will miss him dearly. We do not know what the Lord has planned for him, but we know he has a plan,” stated a family representative. The family appreciates the support they have received from the college and community. They have asked for privacy to grieve during this tragic time.

A memorial service is being planned for 10am, Wednesday, October 1, at Calvary Baptist Church in Neosho. Funeral services will be held at a later date in Minneapolis, where family and friends reside.


(9/28)Police were called Saturday afternoon to a body found on the side of South Highway 59.  

Twenty-two-year-old  Mutombo Hughes Kazadi appeared to be  in cardiac arrest. He was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. An autopsy has been ordered.
