|Let the memory of Prince Alexander Azeh Ndikum be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Prince Alexander Ndikum, 83, born on January 1, 1933 and passed away on February 22, 2016. We will remember him forever.
Pa Alex Azeh Ndikum was the third of four sons born to Mama Odilia Shuri-Minya Ndikum with Fon Ndikum I of the Royal family of Akum.
As a young kid he attended primary school in St. Joseph's Catholic School Big Mankon. He wrote the entrance exams into St. Joseph's College Sasse and CPC Bali. Even though he passed in flying colors, his family could not afford the tuition. Pa decided to migrate for greener pastures to Douala in the then French Cameroon. While in Douala, he established a flourishing business empire of photography and import/export. Within this period, he enrolled in French and English courses through which he earned a correspondence Law Degree. He was forced to relocate to Victoria during a brief period of unrest in the former East Cameroon. Pa joined the stamp duty and trusteeship under the Ministry of Finance as a Bilingual Secretary when he arrived Victoria. On his many vacations to Akum Village, he met and fell in love with the love of his life, Celine Azueh, now also know as "Cherie-Mama". The two blessed their union in Holy Matrimony in 1967. While in Victoria, Pa started the Royal Printers International in Yaounde. During this time, Pa had to and fro transfers (Job transfers by the Government) from Bamenda to Yaounde and back, spending 2years in Yaounde while managing the Printing Press on the side, before finally moving it (Printing Press) to T - Junction Bamenda in 1977. While in Bamenda, Pa Nkoh lived with his family at T - Junction, Below PSS Mankon before finally moving to New Bell Atuakom where he has lived from 1984 till date. After his retirement in 1992, Pa has been managing his Royal Printers International which was later moved from T - Junction to Santa Park in Bamenda. In 2005, Pa visited some of his children in the USA during which he attended the wedding of his Nephew (Increase Ndikum). Pa and his wife Celine Azueh (Cherie-Mama) were planning to renew their vows in 2017 which would have been their 50th anniversary.
Over the years, through Mamfe to Bamenda they have had nine beautiful children (two passed away when they were just two years old each Maceline Ngum-Azah Ndikum and Ferdinand Ndikum Ndikum second and third respectively) and ten(10) grandchildren.
Prince Alexander Azeh Ndikum fell ill on Sunday the 21st of February and was rushed to the St Mary Hospital at 5AM on Monday the 22nd of February. He later died that Monday the 22nd February at 10PM. He is survived by his wife and seven children, ten grandchildren, many brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews relatives and friends to mourn him. He was preceded into eternal glory by His father, mother and two brothers(Cheboh Nkwentifor Ndikum and Stephen Fon Ndikum).

"Dear Ndikums, we were deeply saddened when the news came of your father’s death. Our hearts are filled with sympathy for the shock and grief you are suffering today. We have been in your positions and there is nothing we can say or do to make the hurt go away. We want you to know, however, that God is for you and you are for each other. Your father did his job on earth and was loved by so many. He will be dearly missed. Please, you all should accept our heartfelt condolences and start finding peace in the good works of your father. You often spoke of his great blessing in having him and your mother as your parents.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you through this difficult time of your fresh grief. Let his spiritual journey be safe.
Doris Chibikom and family."
"My dear Pa NDIKUM I met you for the first time in 2013 during the thanks giving ceremony at your compound in Bamenda. I had very little conversation with you because of the circumstances of that day. I heard that you were a man of intergrity. Also that you made sure you very well nurtured and raise all the children you had. These children that are more than friends to me. They are my family. Just a few days before your departure I had a conversation with Patience who told me," I really miss my dad. I will go home soon and really spoil him" I remember Mami NDIKUM always calling baby Kunic , "my husband" and how she can't wait to come back home to you. I have one prayer that the Good Lord accepts your soul into His kingdom. Also that the peace of the Lord that surpasses all human understanding locate the entire family. May your soul rest in perfect peace Amen"
"Hello Pa Azeh-Ndikum farewell: From the time I got to know you, I found a friend a father and a teacher. Your way of life and the things you believed in gave me courage and strength to carry on. Because of your advice and suport I am a better person and also part of a wonderful family.
My visit in Cameroon after losing my elder sister, was another turning point in my life. You helped me build strength and because of your powerful words it was easy for me to handle my pain. Knowing you was one of the best things that happened to me. I learned to respect every one no matter who they are. You use the word Mr./Mrs. to address every one. I cherished the times I spent with you. I will forever cherish our times together.
Farewell Pa Azeh-Ndikum I will continue to pass the lessons I learned from you, so your legacy will live on. I will really miss you, I love you pa.
May Your Soul Rest In Peace."
"Pa, I want to say goodbye and also ask the Lord to make sure your soul rest in peace. You will be missed."
"Dearest PA Nkoh,
A thousand words will not bring you back;
I know because I have tried.
A thousand tears will not bring you back;
I know because I have cried.
But at least I find comfort with the thought that you died a happy man and there is an additional angel watching over us from Heaven.
Go with the wind and May you find rest and comfort in the Bossom of the Lord.
"What else could a son require from a father. You gave me more than I deserved. I never knew this day will come so soon after everything we talked about while spending some time together. I hope it will sink in one day but I can't still believe you are gone. God knows best and I know you are with him right now. I love you Dad. I miss you a lot."
"My hero, my pillar, my mentor you have left a void in my heart. It's still very difficult for me to believe you are no more. You have always been there for me . Just when we are to come home and rejoice with you again as one big family the Lord decided to call you to his side. What are we gonna do come 2017 with all the big plans we had. It's just so hard .......... Your focus on education keeps pushing me to where I am. Your dreams must come true. You will rejoice in heaven to when I accomplish your dreams. God's ways are not ours. We love you but he loves you more. He did not want you to suffer that's why he called you. Stay there papa and watch over us. You are in our hearts forever. We will continue with your principles. A Dieu Papa"
"I love you beyond words and right now my heart is broken in to a thousand pieces, but I rejoice because I know u are with our Lord and Saviour. I will carry the touch you lit in me until we meet again , you are forever in our hearts. We love you but the Lord loves you more."
"Papa you have left me in the middle of the sea.l am tired of answering questions about you. What do l tell my colleagues of bamenda city council. We were together on Friday and on Monday you were no more.Hmmmmmm you fought a good fight.You will be missed by many.May your soul rest in perfect peace."
"Pa Nkoh as we will call him, Farewell you were our late Mom's closest Uncle, our cartier Grand Pa. We will miss you. The humble Prince of Akum. You have left us heavy hearts. We will for ever cherish the lessons you taught us and we as a family promise to keep your legacy. We pray for the family you have left behind for strength and support from God during this difficult time. May your gentle Soul Rest In Peace."
"pa we wish you a safe journey
When I was in trouble, Lord, I prayed to you, and you listened to me. From deep in the world of the dead, I begged for your help, and answered my prayer.
may you soul rest in peace
"I will like to express my sincere sympathy to the bereaved family. May his gentle soul rest with the Lord."
"...we love thee well but JESUS love thee best, good night good night good night
"Our dear father God never wanted you to be suffering here on earth so he decided to call you home to come rest by him with the rest of your brothers and sisters and your mum and dad who have gone before you. Pa Nkuh as we fondly called you rest in peace with the lord and secure a better place for the rest of us who are still here on earth. Pa we loved you but God loved you most.Bye bye till we meet again to path no more.Dieu notre pere et paix a ton arme."
"We love you but God loves you more, until we meet again dad."
"Pa, We treasure the days God granted us to be with you, lean on you for many needs and continuous wise counsel. We treasure your support for more than 20 years after your older brother passed on and left us with you. Tell him you left us well and we will see you all again. Sleep tight Papa."
