Happy Birthday Pappy!
I am certain you are celebrating in your new Home,
Its over five months now that you changed your home address.
life for Life!
mortality for Immortality!

How you loved birthdays!
Everyone's birthday was a "party", our family was always large enough to make up our very own party crowd...
Pounded yam - always a given!
Today was no exception...the dinning table was surrounded by children and grandchildren.
Ha! lest i forget, as usual,Mummy didn't eat pounded yam (but she didn't drink garri as was her custom...wink) can you believe she actually ate yam? hahahahaha

I miss you a lot...we all do....
For all you were, anyone would call you Superman, i simply called you Dad!
A voice of reason, A heart of gold.
I miss you Pappy, i miss you a lot........

Love always
Oluwakemi

You were and you are still the best big daddy ever. 
I remember all the beautiful moments, gifts and experiences you shared with my sisters and I. It indeed was a blessing knowing you big Daddy.
It hurts us to know you are no longer with us but we are comforted knowing that you are with the Lord.
We love you big Daddy. Rest on with the Lord.

The news of your departure to the great beyond came like a thunderbolt - it was surprising and shocking.
My relationship with you spanned
close to 50years - as my senior in ILESA Grammar School where you were the School Football Captain and more importantly as a close ally of my Late brother Wuyi Falore (1951-2018) You were so close that he influenced your decision to come to ILESA for your HIgher School Certificate while he was working as a Teacher in ILESA. My late brother as well pressurized you into Leaving your Teaching job at Ado Odo to join the then Board of Customs & Excise as a Department Of Federal Ministry Of Finance as a sportsman. Recall while we were staying at Medical Road Barracks then while you were living at Adesina St somewhere off Obafemi Awolowo Way in IKEJA.
I recall your close relationship with my late brother formed the basis of stronger relationship of the Aladesanmis with the Falores. So much that you were always part and parcel of all the Social functions of any of The FALORES from the 1970s. You were really Much more than a brother!
You will be remembered as a loving husband and father who sacrificed EVERYTHING to ensure that the entire members of the immediate family are all right. You role as a dotting father over then little Kemi and Ope (and Later Seye and Bode)  in the 1970s and 80s keep coming to my mind as I put pen to paper.
Your exit out of this world made me
believe in the lyrics of popular Jim Reeves that “ This world is not my home , Am just passing through......”
We the Falores admonish the Aladesanmi’s that they should bear the great loss with fortitude prayerfully as Christian. Whatever may be adduced as the reason for
the immediate event is not as important as the Knowledge that he left us at the time Appointed by God for a better place to have an eternal rest.
Sleep well Brother John in the bosom Of Jesus.
BOSUN FALORE (on behalf of the FALORE Family)

Flashing back to those days at Ikere Street Lagos, though I don't live there but I had home there; that was your home! we never had opportunity to have one on one discussion but the people in that home helped in shaping how I succeeded in Life; the things I learnt in life, the motivation for a better tomorrow. At a point in time that home became the only comfort I had and reason to hope for better things to come; I learnt the importance of helping others to succeed there; come to think of it; that Home only existed because of you Sir, Chief Aladesanmi John Adefemi.Your posterity has been impacting life even when you were alive; I couldn't have made a better statement than the Bible when It says " A good man leave inheritance for his Children's children". Sleep well Sire!
Posted by Adebola Falore on April 2, 2019
A gentle man, peace-loving personality. Mr Aladesanmi has gone to a place of eternity where there is no more death or fear. A place of splendour and beauty according to Revelations 21:18-27.
We are all pilgrims in this world, psalm 89:48 says “what man is he that liveth, and shall not see death?”
No wonder a poet in his poem say
“Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be
A resting place along the road
To sweet Eternity. .............
.........
But when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace
Together with the Lord”
Everlasting peace is your lot.
You will forever be missed by those who genuinely loved you.
May your beautiful soul Rest In Peace.
Adieu Daddy Kemi!
Adieu Olawuyi Falore’s Bestie!

Adieu Sir.

MY PRESY,
You came, you saw, you conquered. You fought the good fight and overcame. Your sense of duty, discipline, care and deep feeling and empathy for your fellow human beings marked you out of millions of people.
    We shall sorely miss you, but we have solace in the fact that are resting in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rest in peace.

Daddy ikere or daddy Aladesanmi as fondly called in my family, you are a father to the core even to those that are not your biological children, an ICON to be emulated who is ever interested in everyone success in life with his good humour, I cherished every bit of knowing you as a father, I remembered those good old days when you use to take us to school in ikere while mommy will carry all girls and daddy will carry all boys or Vis visa, then it was fun but at the same you was teaching us to love one another and to live in peace, I can't mention it all but your good memory will remain ever fresh in our heart,
Daddy you are an EPITOME of LOVE and PEACE to everyone around you. We love you but God loves you more, we meet to part!!! It is well with you soul Daddy! Continue to rest in eternal peace Daddy Aladesanmi. Thank you for your positive impact in my life, I will forever be grateful.

PAPPY,
When I heard of your demise, It was so painful ,why does good people go early? At the same time am glad you lived a fulfilled life.
You were more than a father,
You represented you sister (my mum)well am sure she's not disappointed,
All the memories keeps coming back,how you would correct with love,how you carried me from the theatre when i had appendicitis.
I mean you were my hero.I planned bringing your twins during Easter but I understand you couldn't Wait.
Thank you for everything.
Just wish I can see you one more time.
Rest on Superman.

Daddy Eko!
Daddy Eko, the affectionate name, my siblings and I call you.
I received with deep sadness the news of what I have now accepted as your "transition to glory." in spite of this, the blow of the news ripples through me in a sombre manner. Especially, because I had not had the chance in these recent times to call you once more affectionately "Daddy Eko", and to hear your calm, yet firm fatherly voice.
I am comforted, however, knowing that you are in a better place with the Lord. I take absolute solace knowing that you left such a wonderful legacy of genuinely loving and caring for others. Your life was one that served the interest of others. No greater love exists more than this - for a man to serve the interests of others. You were indeed a man who drew your circle large and wide to accommodate all and sundry. Such a beautiful life. Such a beautiful legacy!
Now you rest. Continue to rest Daddy Eko
Posted by Eyitayo George on March 14, 2019
While it is true that death is inevitable, it is also true that few people ever live, though they exist.
It is evident from the testimonials that daddy lived. For which we are thankful to God.
While he has transitioned into the realm of glory, we would always be reminded of the great man grandpa was while he lived, through the lives of those he has left behind.
Though I never met you sir. Yet through Pastor Femi Aladesanmi I see that you were greatness bundled up in human form.
Now you are in that place from which you cheer on those you left behind.
You will surely be missed.
Posted by Danny Kads on March 14, 2019
Hey Superman just like the tributes connotes. Charity they says begins at home. We look no further where your son (our father in the lord) Pst Femi is coming from, with his loving and caring ways of life. The best legacy you can leave for your children (which you have left for them) is neither education nor money, but moral decorum. Thank you for given birth to a man like Pst Femi and others, which am sure you were proud of and will still be proud of in heaven. Sure, you will be greatly missed.
Posted by Olabode Aladesanmi on March 14, 2019
‘When a young man leaves home on a journey he may return to meet the absence of an elder, for the elder may have transitioned to the afterlife’ - African saying
Since I heard the news of your departure, I still cannot find the right emotions to express what I feel. I am not sad (I know you have gone to a better place), yet I am not excited (I miss you dad)
If I say you are the best dad, then we might need to set up a committee for the competition of daddies, after all every child should claim same but surely, you are my best.
Many memories flood my heart. – You taught me to shoot and hunt for animals, you taught me to be loving and sacrificing. You taught me to be a good husband – you taught me well. Your time consciousness (always showing up on time), your neatness (simple yet elegant) and your ability to arrange many things to fit the tiniest of space remains a coveted skill.
I tried so hard to remember you with an angry face and I couldn’t find or remember any day you gave an outburst of anger, you were always calm, cool and composed. Even when we are 'showing ourselves', you know how to get us kids what we need and make little seem like so much. I am yet to talk to or meet anyone who doesn’t have good memories and experiences with you – you will be greatly missed. You are accommodating and ever willing to go the extra mile just to make someone smile.
I know our separation is but for a moment compared to eternity, we shall meet again to part no more.
Till we meet again my SUPERHERO-DAD, I LOVE YOU GAAAN NI O.

PAPPY RAGGAE!!!
My Father, my mother, my friend, my jist partner, my partner in crime.
To say that I miss you is an understatement, how do I explain the void you have left in my heart, how do I express how much it hurts.
You helped me understand life, you taught me the value of time and life.
I remember the first novel I read bought by you "All that glitters is not gold".
You taught me love, sacrifice and responsibility.
You have touched a lot of lives and made impact even with my friends.
I wasn't ready for the impact of the void but knowing your legacy lives on in me gives me the strength I need at this time.
I love you Dad, you are forever missed.

I remember the first time I met you daddy, It was so interesting to see the way you related with your biological children. ( like friends) I saw how you hugged and spoke to my husband, who was my fiance at the time and I knew that God had brought me into the right family. I saw where my husband got his loving, respectful, humble, caring and selfless nature from. I appreciate how you made me feel so welcome the first time daddy, it didn't leave me and never will. I saw how you related with mummy, truth be told, your sons sure honor their wives like you did. And the grandchildren? Wow, your role and place in their lives will never be forgotten. Gentle, but yet firm. My son would never put his finger in his mouth when grandpa came around! I miss the times we spent at the beach and picnics, you watching and listening to our gists and all...hmmm...am so glad those times were well spent. Truly, blessed is the memory of the just.
I am forever grateful to the Lord for the gift of you to me dearest PAPPY!!!! I am glad it's a good night and not a good bye. Till we see again grandpa, with love from your daughter, Tolu.

Hey Pappy,
Omo alagbado ayaayatan.
My ever warm, caring, selfless, sociable, dependable and loving father.
Thanks for being the great man that you were, always wishing everyone well and doing everything in your power to help.
Thanks for being a great husband, a wonderful father and an exemplary leader. Thanks for teaching me that love is more important than money and that a good name is better than riches. I can still hear you saying "whatever one wants to do, it is good to start early." I am blessed to have come to the world through you and mom.
I knew this day was coming, and i thought i was ready. Little did I know that it will lead me into uncharted territory. My heart aches in ways I have never known. I love you and I miss you more than words.
My greatest joy is that you gave your life to Jesus before you passed. So, it's not goodbye dad, till we meet again, good night pappy.

Grandpa!!!!
Cool Calm and Collected.
I am grateful for the few years i knew you. Few years that attest to all the beautiful things been said about you.
I remember your simplicity, your giving, your love for family, your children and grandchildren. My mum still recounts till date how you tenderly carried baby zarah into their house then, when you came visiting.
I remember your joy and strength during your 70th birthday. The joy when you saw your club members and friends come around. Oh Grandpa!!!
You are just at peace seeing all of us your kids and grandkids around gisting and talking in the house even if you won't say anything, your gentle smile reflects your contentment. Days we went to the beach, vacation in Ikere ekiti etc..oh Grandpa!!
Even little zarah remembers how she used to play and jump on you in the house on ikere street. You and grandma were there in her very early days growing up. 
Hmmm!!!! Thank you for all you' ve done Pappy and mostly thank you for raising beautiful sons that have become awesome husbands. We are proud and glad they are connected to you.
Rest on Grandpa..Rest on Pappy. We love you big and your memory lives on in our minds forever.

PAPPY!!!
A father like no other! My hero!!
How do I put my thoughts to words?
How does the hand explain the emotions raging in the heart?
You taught like a father, loved like a mother, indulged like a grandpa and was accepting like a friend.
An unusual father, I am blessed to be birth by you.
You taught me to love, to care for others, to give and keep giving.
You taught me to be adventurous, to dream, to explore, to soar...
You had faith in me, trusted me to do the right thing.
You made it easy for me to understand love without limits - to accept the love of God, I could totally relate with and receive that Gift.
How happy you must be to finally see your bosom friend, your “boy oh boy” @ Wuyi Falore
You lived well,
You loved generously,
You gave sacrificially,
You impacted,
You influenced,
You mentored,
You fought a good fight,
You will never be forgotten!
Rest Pappy, rest my hero, rest my friend, rest well my father.
You will awake in THE MORNING! (1Thess 4:16)
Goodnight dad!
Lotta luv

An early riser, always on timer

A back breaker, giver not a taker

Made sure nothin' was missin'

So we could have everything you didn’t

A patient teacher, strong steady leader

Firm hand shaker, never met a stranger

Tough as steel, heart of gold

It took a while, but now I know

All the little life lessons

But you never expected

A thank you, a pat on the back

You did what you did, no questions asked

I could never say enough through the downs and the ups

You carried the weight so we’d have a good life

Raised us with love so we could fly

Anyone else would call you Superman

But I just call you dad

A spirit lifter, problem fixer

Words of reason, there when you need em’

Calm you down, set you straight

Yeah, I appreciate

All the little life lessons

But you never expected

A thank you, a pat on the back

You did what you did, no questions asked

I could never say enough through the downs and the ups

You carried the weight so we’d have a good life

Raised us with love so we could fly

Anyone else would call you Superman

But I just call you dad

I just call you when I’m lost, when I’m empty

When I need a little help

Whenever I get good news

You’re the first one I wanna tell

So I wanna thank you, give you a pat on the back

For doin' what you did, no questions asked

I could never say enough through the downs and the ups

You carried the weight so we’d have a good life

Raised us with love so we could fly

Anyone else would call you Superman

And I am the 'man' that I am

Because I call you dad
