|Let the memory of Polycarp be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Polycarp Clerkson, 38, born on November 4, 1976 and passed away on September 2, 2015. We will remember him forever.
Polycarp was astute, with a modest mien and humble personality. A rare gentleman that transcended his generation as a shining example of honesty, humility, hard work and God fearing. He dared the odds of life by sheer determination and resilience in education, career, family and service to community which culminated into sterling educational qualifications, high flying career in the banking sector, mentor and friend to a teeming population of young and older people.
He held a Master in Business Administration (MBA) – Agribusiness and B. Agric Tech (Hons) (Second Class Upper) Agricultural Economics and Extension from the Federal University of Technology, Yola, Adamawa State. An Associate of the Institute of Chartered Economists of Nigeria (ICEN). Until his death, he was a staff of Fidelity Bank in Kano.
A wonderful father and husband, married to Titilayo, blessed with two rare gems, St. Daniel and Joanna. Survived by father, mother, brothers and sisters. In the service of the lord, Polycarp loved the lord and had faithfully served in the Lord’s vineyard, committed to his calling and was a passionate giver.
A great man has departed, a gulf created, you will be greatly missed.
Rest well in the bosom of the Lord.
"No one thought he would leave this world so quickly, it is written in destiny would lose a wonderful friend but now he has become an angel who will protect us from heaven
His death is an unfortunate loss for all who were his friends, and we appreciated him a lot in our hearts, may he rest peacefully and that God will protect him forever
God will surely keep and protect his family.... RIP bro."
"In a midst of my grief, I faced a daunting task of crafting a eulogy for an extra ordinary person, Polycarp Clarkson, my very good friend for 20 years. Just few weeks ago we were discussing banking industry. Polycarp and I met in the university remained good friends. His dream was to be a medical doctor while mine was to be an engineer but as fate will having we ended up as Agricultural Economists.
Polycarp's life was taken away from us too soon and it's hard to understand why tragic things like this happen to such good people. Today let's celebrate his life and remember all the remarkable thing Poly accomplished and how wonderful his life was.
I feel grateful that I was asked to pay tribute to Polycarp brilliant scholar, banker per excellent, a fighter and my very good friend. Adieu!"
"Oh! Poly Poly as i used to call you. A very good friend of mine and a class mate. I remember when we first mate at JSSl in TC Numan, u took 2nd position after Peter Ngene while I took the 8th position. U whispired some words of encouragements into my ears. U asked me to double it up. That kept me moving then. God! Poly Poly, litle do I know that u wl leave so soon. Oh Poly, leave io our Lord's bosom in peace. Till we meet to part no more."
"I still cant believe you are gone, rest on brother till we meet to part no more.....we will forever miss you, i pray that God will give us all the fortitude to bear the loss...GOOD NIGHT BROTHER"
"The passage of the gentleman that is Mr Polycarp Clarkson is disheartening. We live on to remember him fondly and to support his wife & children in prayer that the Good Lord will comfort them. Rest thee in peace beautiful soul."
"Polycarp was a gentleman. I see your face in Daniel. May the Lord comfort all you left behind and my dear friend Titi. Adieu big brother and friend. So brief a life you lived. Comfort to everyone of us from the Lord Most High."
