Family and friends remembered Friday a husband and father who lost his life during Hurricane Sandy.
They gathered at a wake for 58-year old Anthony Narh, a Ghanian immigrant and nine-year city resident.
Some of his relatives came all the way from Ghana, including Narh's wife.
Narh was working at a TriBeCa parking garage when it flooded with water from the East River.
He drowned as he took refuge inside an SUV.
"I'm very close with my brother," said Patience Narh, Anthony Narh's sister. "We grow together as twins. We discuss our issues together."
"We try to cope with the loss," said Beverly Bartels, Anthony Narh's wife. "It's terrible, though. Especially with the children, because they haven't seen him for about eight years."
In his native Ghana, Narh previously worked as a military officer and United Nations peacekeeper.
He leaves behind three daughters.
