This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Vincent Oludayo Ojutiku, 97, born on September 2, 1918 and passed away on January 4, 2016. We will remember him forever.
"Papa you nurtured me from childhood and watched me grow guiding me with morals of life, what a great love you and mama showered unto me from birth. One of your words of advise to me when I was a teenager "ranti omo eni ti iwo nse" was ever echoing in my mind which I use as watch words even up till date and that sought of moulded me to be calm and calculative in my life endeavors.I will forever remain greatness Papa, may your soul rest in the bossom of the Lord"
"Oh what a wonderful and rich life you had!! I am so proud to be known as one of your own. Thank you for the guidance and life lessons. Thank you for the beautiful memories.
You will be forever missed and loved!
Rest in Peace, Baba."
"My darling uncle, father like no other, always there to guide and assist. You led a life that all of us you've left behind appreciate and are trying to pass on. I thank Almighty God that He preserved you so long and your grand children's children were privileged to meet the Legend that you have become in the Ojutiku family......... Rest in perfect peace in the bosom of Our Lord Jesus."
We will miss you very much. Here at Ikate, we experienced the bonds of family, the commitment of a Father to his wife, his children and his children's children.
You are a Patriarch of inestimable value. You came through, passed once, but you live forever in our hearts. What can we say of you that has not been said in the lives of the ones you now leave behind. You raised a legacy in us through your visible passion for Christ. Your love for your savior was apparent in the daily devotionals.
We all remember it now. A tradition that will live forever, etched into the permanent place in our soul. Our memories relieving your call to worship, your reliance on your lord - our shepherd. All in our native language, sounds of rejoicing from our tongue - Yoruba.
Baba Ikate (sighs) from afar all many could see was eccentric, rash, disciplinarian, authoritarian. But up close, I got to see the purpose, your heart. A passion to do right, to uphold order, to protect, to preserve, to show love through unwavering discipline and consistent values. You are indeed father to many. I see this example lived now day to day: do right, always, not for social commendation, but for eternal account. We hold your values close.
We will miss you Baba. We miss you Mama. Husband of One. Father to many. Mentor to all. Sleep on. Till we meet again, at the feet of Christ.
Your grandson and grand-daughter,
Tolulope (Morayo) Olugboji and Jessica Douglas"
"I don't remember a lot about Baba from when I was young but I do remember the stories my father would tell us about growing up in Baba's household. He would tell us about how Baba would have fire drills in the middle of the night; rousing everyone from their sweet sleep. Expecting everyone to be vigilant even while they slept; much to the annoyance of his children. He would tell us about how strict Baba was, and how he expected his children to excell beyond even their own expectations. As my father would reminisce on his childhood, I could see that as a father himself, he finally understood that what Baba did, he did out of an immeasurable love and devotion to his family. And for the brief months that I was fortunate enough to spend in Nigeria getting to know my family again, I could see how the lessons that Baba taught molded a family of extraordinary people. That no matter the space between us; be it distance or time, we are tethered together by the incredible love of a father to his children, and his children to theirs. Baba; you are not gone. When I look at my family I see you in it all."
"Grandpa, I will always miss you. But I have so many wonderful memories to hang on to. You were a role model, and a friend. Your guidance and love will carry me through to the end of my days. I love you Grandpa, until we meet again."
"May the good Lord keep and preserve the family you left behind. Rest till we meet to part no more. Mrs A Aina"
"Let the memory of Vincent Oludayo be with us forever, because blessed is the memory of the righteous. Sleep well Pa V.A.O Ojutiku"
