One of Africa Young Voices (AYV) Media Empire’s finest faces on television, Ambassador Ransford Suruda Lube-Metzger Jr. was yesterday 12th June, 2022 laid to rest at the Kissy Village Cemetery east of Freetown, following a befitting Funeral and Communion Service held at the St. Patrick’s Church, Kissy.
The late Ambassador Lube-Metzger Jr was born to Ransford Suruda Lube-Metzger Snr and Noella Matilda Lube-Metzger on 8 February 1990 at the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital on Fourah Bay road in Freetown.
He did his schooling at the Tower Hill Municipal Primary School and the Albert Academy and gained university education at the University of Makeni (UNIMAK).
On completion of his educational carrier, he entered the field of Journalism where he worked at the Africa Young Voices (AYV) Media Empire. From a humble beginning in his chosen field where he was very diligent, he mastered the art of programme production, presentation and news reading where he did a first class job in each sphere. He proved himself to be an outstanding journalist ranking amongst the best nationwide. His deliveries were exceptionally good.
The late Ransford Suruda Lube-Metzger Jr was married to Nora and they lived happily and were blessed with a girl child Georgiana.
Ransford Jr was a diligent Christian attending the St. Patrick’s Church Kissy where he was a Chorister and a founding member or the Churches Boys Friendly Society and also a Church committee member.
He was a member of many other organisations within the Church and the Kissy community such as the ‘Kissy Pikin Dem Organisation’. Ransford was affable and was always ready to help when called upon, especially in the area of his profession.
Indeed “We have no abiding city here”. This is so true or human life here on mother earth; and late Ransford’s passing away helps remind us of his empirical fact.
While here on earth Ransford did the will of God; making him to become a friend and favorite of many, even people in high places. See page 8 for photo news on the vigil and Funeral and Communion Service held at the St. Patrick’s Church on Saturday and Sunday.
