The family of the 11-year old boy who drowned in a Villa Hills pool last month is hoping to raise funds for his funeral and other related expenses.

Eric Mutabazi died while swimming in a friend’s pool on Sept. 17. He was later found unresponsive in the pool and efforts to save him by witnesses and emergency responders were unsuccessful.

“Eric was a wonderful little boy who touched the lives of those around him,” the GoFundMe post reads. “At just 11 years old, Eric enjoyed helping his mother with his younger siblings and always made her some tea which he knew she loved. He was such a kind little boy with a mischievous streak. We will remember him for his kindness, willingness to make us laugh, and the little pranks that he used to play.”

As of Monday, $4,274 of the $15,000 goal has been raised
