"I wish to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and loved ones of this wonderful pioneer alumnus of Keta Secondary School, the school that gave me a boost in my education.  He was proud of Ketasco and spoke glowingly of being the number one in the class register because of his initials AAA. Mr. Adjavon's commitment to the well-being and development of many people is evident for all to see.  He has left a legacy borne out of this passion and dedication.  May his soul rest in perfect peace.  May he rest well in the bosom of His Maker. He lives in the hearts of many, including the graduates of the school he built.  May GOD comfort the widow, the children, the family, loved ones and friends, and grant them strength and peace.  Psalm 90:12.  Peace. IT IS WELL."

"We are completely shocked at the sudden demise of our pioneer hardworking and committed son of Dzolali!

Through your generous efforts you sacrificed and provided for us and changed the lives of many. Your memory is in the hearts of the entire Ketasco family fraternity.

May our good God grant you eternal peace and may He also give the many friends and family you have left behind the strength to carry on your good work at this time of sorrow. Yours was a legacy well lived and that glow and bright fire you started will continue to burn bright.  

A great tree has fallen but the many seeds you produced will grow and mature and multiply for generations more to come. You are gone to eternal glory but you will not be forgotten.

Rest in peace!"

""The heroes of our past and present are the best songs we can sing. They are a strong foundation and glorious hope." - T. Quist, 2014

As we mourn one of the greatest in the annals of our history, Mr. Adjavon, we recognize the immerse contributions he made in many ways, especially to our dear Alma Mata, Keta Senior High (Ketasco).

Of his kind, there are just a few. Therefore, by Mr. Adjavon's demise we have lost a great deal. I have not personally seen or known him, but I'm so inspired by the testimonies of those who have known him, especially my 1985 year mates. May his ideals spur us to greater heights and do more to improve the world he has left behind. Rest In Peace, man of valor."

""words fail me, what can I write or say to honor one that we owe so much...it is hard to believe you are gone. Death merely shuts the door on the early life but opens the gates to eternity manifested in the Lord Jesus Christ. Mr. Ajavon, you made an effort to know all of us. You expressed fondliness in our school activities and always enquired to know about the problems we had, which we always said was the Wi-Fi. Your fluency in English was breathtaking. You have accomplished so much and the good Lord acknowledges this. You lived a life worthy of emulation and I will cherish your memory forever. Sleep well Mr. Ajavon. ~Curtis Yoofi Barnes-Dabban (IB Class of 2014)"

"To the family of Alphonse Ayite Adjavon.  I didn't know Alphonse but, from reading about him, I can tell he was loved and will be missed by family and friends,  It is comforting to know that the Bible holds out the hope that we will have the prospect of seeing our dear loved ones again.  This is by means of the resurrection hope.  John 5:28,29.  The Bible promises that people will be resurrected here on a paradise earth.  This is in the Bible at Luke 23:43 and Psalms 37:29.  People will be resurrected in perfect health, never to die again because sickness and death is going to be done away with.  Isaiah 33:24 and Revelation 21:4.  The Bible also tells us about the conditions of those living at that time, how it would be.  Isaiah 35:5-7. Please read these scriptures in your Bible because they bring about great comfort, comfort to know that you will be able to see and be with your dear loved one again.  If you have questions about the resurrection hope or anything else. Please feel free to contact me or go to the website www.jw.org, you will find answers to almost any question you may have."

"Saying goodbye has always been one of my greatest challenges. Your smile, humility and joviality was always one to look up to during the course of the day. We cannot mourn this agony of death but rather, we celebrate your life, which was truly inspiring to many, and thank God that we had you in glory and beauty for so long. You would fondly be remembered Mr Alphonse Ayite Adjavon. Rest in perfect peace. ~Nana Afia Gyapong (TIS IB CLASS OF 2014)"

"Past President Alphonse Adjavon of the Rotary Club of Tema 1980/81

When I  joined  Rotary Club of Tema in 1996 , he was  one of the Rotarian's who stood out , his cool attitude was reflected on discussing serious issues as well  when cracking one of his many jokes ,  he had time for Rotary until TIS took him over, nevertheless he did not stop helping the Club when need arise.

Our deepest sympathy to Untie Comfort  from the Fernandes Family"

"Rest in Peace!"

This tribute was added by Charles Owusu Ansah on 24th December 2014

"Dear Mr A. Adjavon,
For the past two years one of the greatest but yet concealed virtue, uncommon amongst our generation is what you abstractly inculcated to me - SIMPLICITY.  I vividly remember how  my expectations of the  prestigious Tema International school's founder was sky-scraping  but to my greatest surprise, here was this tall gentle man emerging from a saloon car dressed up in a short sleeved shirt and tie. This has been "Mr Ajavon" every time I saw him. If you didn't wear a smile on your face, then I also didn't wear my spectacles, hence an impaired vision.
Yes! You've departed the human race, but you still live as the product of your dream is still alive and kicking, raising high the banner of TIS. And because Jesus had triumphed over death, It's a certainty that you're seated at the right hand of Christ.

                 Charles Owusu Ansah (IB class of 2014)."
