ForeverMissed
We are devastated by the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, friend and colleague; on 14 October 2020. Afolabi has gone too soon and may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
The funeral service followed by interment took place on Friday 6 November 2020 at Islington & St Pancras Cemetery, London, UK. It was live streamed and a link for the edited video is available upon request. Tributes were collected and a memorial brochure was prepared - it is also available upon request.
We notified as many people as we could at the time but Afolabi was very popular and well connected and we were not aware of everyone he knew. Some people found out via the GoFundMe page we had set up to raise funds for his funeral. We have since set up this website (on 29 April 2021) to notify people - please feel free to leave tributes and upload photographs here. 
Thank you for all your love and support.
Afolabi's family.

Afolabi, my dear friend. Why oh why have I not kept in touch these last several years? I spoke to Simi on LinkedIn a few days ago, and she shocked me by mentioning your passing in her reply. Gone too soon my friend!! I remember our deep conversations, our associations with mutual friends & family, and I don't know why nor how you were taken from us. You left us on 14th October - my birthday! Good Lord, please rest Afolabi's soul in Your eternal peace. Amen.

Been a while we talked. Your numbers were not going through. So I decided to do a Google search and this is what I got. I am in shock and at a loss for what to say. I wouldn’t be looking for you if you didn’t impact my life some way. Thanks for being a gentleman, easy to relate with. Rest In Peace my friend.

Damn!!!
Folabi,I just randomly remembered you today and googled you.
Almost smashed my phone when I saw this. We met in London many years ago,and even though life threw us in different directions,we maintained contact for a while-till life again,took over.
I remember you as a complete gentleman. Funny,very kind and very intelligent. Those memories would stay with me forever.
May your gentle soul rest eternally and peacefully.
*ps* I have still refused to attend the law school
Thank you for gracing me with your friendship-though brief-it was good.
Rest my dear friend.
Good bye.

It would have been your birthday today, 52 years old. I cannot believe you are not here for it, and that you were gone at just 50 years old. Why, why, why? I hope you are resting well. We miss you.

Still struggling to accept you’re gone from this earth…but you’ll always be in our hearts and minds. Love. Always.

I think of and miss you every day. I can’t believe that you are gone or understand how you are gone. It is well with your soul. It is well with our souls.

Folabi, I cannot believe a year has paased. I am still in shock, still angry and still far from acceptance. My only comfort is nothing can touch you as you rest in peace.

To live in the hearts of those who love us is not to die. So death has no victory!
Continue to rest in Perfect Peace Afolabi along with all our other beloved ones in God's Love and Mercy.
We miss you all but we shall meet again.
Oyinkan and Aronke

Yayabi, I cannot believe it has been a year, I miss you so much and I cannot find the words. Rest in eternal peace my dear.

I am very sad to hear of Labi's passing. I just found out. He was so kind and had the best sense of humor. I met him while I was working in London in 2000. My thoughts are with you.
