ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our father and grandfather Chief Babatunde Falohun. We will remember him forever.

Baba Falohun was an epitome of courage and a beacon of hope for anyone who comes around him. We met at a point when I was giving up on some things but when I saw the zeal, tenacity, perseverance, skills, jealousy, and mindset you brought to the table in the very short but worthwhile time we worked together, I couldn't but advice myself that if this old man is not giving up who am to say I'm letting go on this. Daddy was a man of many paths yet in always in current form in all paths. He'll be sorely missed no doubt by family, friends and people like me whom he gingered to life and hope. Adieu

A great man has left us....
I love you grandpa; I always will.
As tears ran down my face when I heard you died, I was sad, heartbroken,pained... Words couldn't express how I felt that night, but I know you're in a better and happier place. You always cared for each and everyone one of your children AND grandchildren. You're the best granddad I could have ever asked for. I will never forget all you did for me. Chief Babatunde Olubunmi Falohun... I'd never forget you, continue to rest in the bossom of the almighty.

A heart made of pure gold has stopped beating...
How would I ever forget our memories together, your warm hugs, smiles, jokes? I last saw you a day to your last day, and you looked at me with a smile on your face. I never knew it'd be the last I'd see. The last word we said to eachother was "bye"...I never knew you were saying the final.
Your grandchildren had a special place in your heart, you never allowed anyone beat us. You'd always say "leave them for me o, melò ni mò tìì bí(how many of them do I have)".
Even though you're dead, you're not genuinely gone, cos your memories would continue to live in our hearts. Till we meet again. We love you now and forever...

Dad I really miss you, never knew you would leave us so suddenly, you were a good man, you advised me and did your best to provide for my siblings and I. You tried your best in helping people, I am saddened that death took you away, but God said in all things we should give him thanks. Your death left a scar in our hearts but your legacy will stand in our life. We miss you Dad.. Adieu….

Your death came to me as a rude shock & to the entire family. What can we say but to thank God (Oba alapa dupe) for your life, wives, the good children & the entire family you left behind. I pray that God will comfort all the people you left behind.
Sun re o omo lekure mo su ni idile iya re.

Grandpa, you were more than a father-in-law, you were a father. Your fatherly counsels and advice went a long way in helping myself and my husband to always set our priorities right and to maintain focus in pursuing our vision. Within the short period of time that I had the privilege of talking with you, those moments were moments I will never forget, because the few words spoken to my husband and I were words that would carry us on forever. You were there for us, when things appeared gloomy. Rest on baba oninu re. From Seun, Muyiwa's wife.

I have always said it and I will not stop saying it. You did everything you could daddy, to set me on the path of my ministerial calling. You were the one who followed me to the school of missions in 2010 and ensured I was admitted, you paid my year one training fee in full. When I was going finally to resume, you followed me down there and advised me to focus on my training, an advise that pushed me through my four years of training, inspite of the rigourous life and experience of the mission school. You advised me to focus on my life assignment and not to be materialistic. You gave me Watchman Nee's book to read, a man whose teaching so much impacted my life. Sometimes you spoke like a prophet, infact you saw ahead of time. A researcher per excellence and a business tycoon. Your advise were always timely, you were more than a father to me, you were equally a coach and a mentor. I have learnt a lot from you over the years, you were such an inspiration to me. A courageous man, I once said it that if you were a preacher, your boldness would have equalled that of late Archbishop Benson Idahosa. I would never forget how you rose up during my wedding and how you have always advised my wife and I. My wife Oluwaseun, Samuel(your Jerry boy) and Esther will miss you. I will forever miss you my father, my coach, my consultant and mentor. Olumuyiwa Oluwabunmi

You never gave any one of us problems, rather, you were a solid rock behind us all in spite of our shortcomings. Your name opened doors of opportunities and hitherto inaccessible contacts for us. You got me my job in the FRSC when all hopes seemed lost, even making the stressful journey to Abuja to personally attend my passing out parade and pipping at the Eagle Square. You decorated me to my present rank when I got my last promotion. All done in love. I remember many a wise counsel you gave me......I would come to you emotionally troubled, but certainly leave with the heavy load lifted from my heart. You were truly a legend and we are already missing you. Sleep well dad, you deserve a good rest.

Daddy Falohun as I always refer to you!!! Your passing came as a shock to me because somehow I just took for granted that great men can’t pass.
Daddy, you lived a very good life and we shall meet at the feet of Jesus on Resurrection morning! Adieu Daddy!!

HOME CALL OF A LEGEND

Shared by Abiodun Falohun on June 13, 2021
A legend indeed you were my humble and amiable late father. You were known and famous for your problem solving attitude. You never saw a problem as a problem but you always tell me- "Biodun, it is a challenge" I cherished the moments we shared together even till your last day on earth. You were such a brave and courageous man with a midas touch. Memories of you still linger in my heart. I remember that faithful Friday,  you gave me a call that we should all come over to your place on Saturday 3rd April to celebrate Easter with you, little did I know that your were bidding us farewell. I will forever miss you dad, sun re oo baba mi owon.

When Words are not Enough

Shared by Temitope Ojo on May 30, 2021
Uncle Tunde, as we fondly called you, the news of your sudden departure took us all by surprise. Although saddened by the fact that our dear Sister Anike, your lifelong companion and soul mate of 55+ years will no longer have you by her side, the precious memories will linger. Memories that I have from the '60s at the Unife campus where you and Sister met. That was the early days of soul music and I remember vividly your collection of Otis Redding and of course that striking resemblance to the late King of Soul.  

In your home, we felt free and you showed a lot of respect to everyone. I was immediately struck by the fact that you never referred to me or any of us in the family just by our names. I was Uncle Tope from the beginning despite me being the youngest in the family with the obvious age difference. We could use any of your vehicles at any time without questions asked. If we came back with a few scratches or dents (and there were quite a few), you showed no anger nor did you bear any animosity. These are just some of the many attributes and examples of how you touched each and everyone. Your children and grandchildren exemplify the same humility and reflect your legacy.

I am glad we had a chance to visit February 2020. While we were discussing plans for you and Sister to travel and visit in the US, God had other plans and his plans we know and understand are always the best plans. So we do not mourn, rather we celebrate your life and legacy. Sleep on Uncle Tunde. Tope, Bunmi and the Ojo Family bid you farewell.
