This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Joseph Maximuangu, 73, born on September 23, 1943 and passed away on October 5, 2016. We will remember him forever.
Mr.Joseph chi Maximuangu was a student in CPC (Cameroon Protestant College) Bali Mezam Division in the early sixties. After CPC Bali he proceeded to the Regional College of Agriculture Bambili and from there went abroad for higher education. He graduated from the University of Maryland college (UMUC) and returned to serve his country in various capacities. He worked his way up to the Technical Adviser to the Hon. Minister of Livestock Fisheries and Animal Husbandry. When he retired from public service, he returned to Nchoubou where he worked on his farm raising chicken, dairy cattle and garden products. He was very active in his social life, quarter meetings where he became the quarter head for a period of time, an Active BOBAN that rose up to Mezam Chapter president, was very active in the church where he became the patron of many church groups, just to name a few. He passed away after a brief illness may his soul rest in peace.
"Dad was a kind compassionate person that believed in the goodness of people. He always tried to help everyone he came across offering spiritual, psychological and financial help according to his means. He was the light of every party, occasion or celebration; you would see him going around making sure everyone is catered for, and comfortable. A simple down to earth person, honest to the core and never sought to gain more than he could achieve
I remember growing up I was becoming a little wild and once I did something really stupid I knew he was going to be very angry. Instead he took me in his car just the two of us, he was calm and talked to me but what shaped me a little and would always remain with me was a song he played for me in his car, "my son you are close to my heart, I called you and set you apart that you may show the world my kindness, my gentleness, my righteousness, my holiness that people may know I am alive", from then on I saw my dad in a different light. I understood who he was, what he was, what he stood for. Since that day we had a type of bond I never could fathom, he didn't need to tell me what he needed and felt I just knew, and I believe he knew what I felt. I know that dad I might never be the man you were but I would light a candle for you and keep on striving to keep the light in you burning till we meet again.
I love and will miss you dad"
