The immediate-past president, John Mahama, on Friday visited the widow and children of the late Major Maxwell Mahama in Accra.
Mahama met Barbara and her two children at their Burma Camp residence in the nation's capital.
The former president later shared photos of his meeting with the late soldier's family on Facebook.
He said he made the visit to determine how the Barbara and the children were doing.
Barbara and other members of the late major's family could be seen in black dresses, indicating that they were still in mourning.
Major Mahama, an officer in the Ghana army, was killed by a brutal mob at the Central Regional town of Denkyira Obuasi in May.
According to police, the mob mistook the then army captain for a thief and lynched him.
His death drew condemnation from many Ghanaians and sparked a relentless campaign against mob violence.
