Dr Harrison Omorodion left this earthly world to meet our Maker at the early hours of Sunday 18th April, 2021 in his sleep, under mysterious circumstances. He left behind a wife (Blessing), two beautiful children (Chloe, 6 and Harvey, 4), his parents, sister, brother and other family members.

He bagged a PhD in Chemistry from Trinity College Dublin in 2017, and he was at the beginning of what would have been a very accomplished career.
A youth leader in his local church community who volunteered passionately as a youth teacher, motivating, influencing, developing potentials, and mentoring the teenagers and young adults around him, through facilitating, organizing various career and personal development workshops/seminars.

Early days
Harrison attended Obey Olise Primary and Secondary School in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria, where he was the class representative for most of his time at the school. He graduated and was briefly in  Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Nigeria before relocating to Ireland. 
In his time in Benin City, Harrison was the Children Choirmaster and Children Coordinator in Captain Jesus Power Ministry, Benin City.
He  relocated to Ireland in 2006 with his mother, sister and brother to join their father. 
Harrison attended Tallaght Community School where he completed his leaving certificate with excellent grade in 2009. He proceeded to university after this for his first degree and eventually his PhD in August 2017.

Harrison has left a mark on all of his colleagues in Chemistry and in Trinity. It seems incomprehensible that he is gone.

Sincere sympathies to all and especially to his young family and friends.

Deeply sorry to hear of Harrison’s passing. He is fondly remembered by all of the technical staff of the School of Chemistry of Trinity College Dublin.

This was and still is a huge blow. Waking up on that Sunday and hearing the news I couldn’t comprehend how shocking it was. Dr Harrison was a role model. A very successful man and a passionate man of God. May his legacy live on. We will continue to honour your memory and make you proud. RIP

It still comes as a shock to me that you're gone. You were an inspiration to me and always encouraged me whenever I wasn't feeling right. You helped me get closer to God. You were such a kind, funny and clever man. You were not only a teacher, but a friend. I know you are watching over all of us as you stand by God's side up in heaven, and I will make sure not to let any of your teachings go to waste. Thank you for always being there for all of us.

Dr Harrison was only 3 years older than me. He has showed me that life is too short. Leave a footprint and impact the world. Be selfless and not selfish. Use your tools to help others excel too. My heart breaks for your wife and children and family. Rest in peace Dr Harrison

Dear Dr Harrison,

To me, you were a man of integrity. You were an influencer. I still struggle to say “was” and “were”. I still find it hard to refer to you in the past tense. I still find it hard to accept you’re gone. You really inspired and influenced me. I don’t know if you ever knew how much of a huge impression you made on me. You are someone I admired and respected. Considering the fact that you had so many achievements under your belt, you were super humble. I really admired how much of a family-orientated person you were. You saw all of us as your family.

You were someone who was always concerned about the youths. People like you are hard to come by especially in our community, especially in a black community. You were genuinely interested in our welfare, our careers and our futures. You saw beyond our present and were always so excited about our next steps, the next chapters in our lives. You showed us what God’s love should look like through your lifestyle. Jesus lived His life on earth serving others. You followed His example and served others. You served the youths. As our teacher, you never gave up on us. Even when there were times when we weren’t cooperative or were difficult, you never once thought we were a lost cause. That’s one of the reasons why I respected you. You never judged us. You believed in us more than we believed in ourselves. It’s now up to us to honour you by not letting your wise words and hard work on us go to waste.

I’m honoured to have been taught by you and to be mentored by you. I’m just privileged to have crossed your path, really. I still look at your number in my phone and can’t help but think this is all a dream. That if I just call your number now, you’ll pick up the phone and all of this would be just a crazy dream. Looking at us now, I can’t help but wonder what you’re thinking. You’d probably be telling us not to cry for you but to keep it pushing and make you proud. I hope you are resting well in Heaven. I hope you’re at peace. You lived well and loved hard. I know no one will ever love you more than God loves you. You are a treasure to Him as you were to us. I will miss you and I will never forget you. I don’t really do well with goodbyes. So, until we meet again...

Rest in Peace and Power Dr Harrison

The family of Elder Pius Olola Ojo and Dcns Yemisi Ojo with heavy heart send our heart felt condolences to the Omorodion's family for this sudden loss of Doctor Harrison Omorodion especially his parents, wife, children and siblings. Painful, and unexpected exit indeed! Words can not quantify our pains. One of the great memories I had of Dr. Harrison was when he, his wife, his Mom attended the maiden edition of Gala Night with the Lord in 2016. It was awesome to see him dancing with his wife. He spoke about how much fun he had, because his routine has always been School, Church and home. What an impact he has made in his short life. He was an achiever, a trailblazer, an icon, a great servant of God, Youth Sunday School Teacher, motivational speaker, loving Son, father and husband. He will forever be missed! Rest in peace Dr. Harrison Omorodion

My son said this words...

When the first time I met Harrison in 2018, he told me 'That's a nice suit! I would love to wear a suit as well in the office but this is not the place I desire to be in' and I asked him where do you want to be than? He said, I am a PHD holder and I want to work in an organisation where my PHD would matter and I could make a difference and once I have that then I will wear suits.
Later in that year, I saw him going for interviews in the morning and coming to work later in the day. He worked so hard in that period that he started to feel sick as well but he ended up getting a job that he wanted. That's the kind of the man Harrison was.
And in the present day, its impossible to believe that he is no more.

often in this world, strangers happen to meet. In strange paths, they meet and lose each other but we always remember them and I will always remember you brother.
-Rest In Peace!

Hmmm.... Life indeed is vain and empty! Our one and only Doctor! You were a great teacher, Encourager who was loving and a gentle soul. You loved the youths so much. Your early exit from this world is too painful to bear Bro, but our God is an unquestionable God. Rest on Bro, you fought the good fight and you won! You came into this world a sinner but left a son of God. Our God has gained another angel through you. We love you Bro But Jesus loves you more.

You were a colossus that would be greatly missed by all and sundry. Within your sojourn on earth, you came and conquered. You impacted lives, restored hope to the hopeless, and shined as a light to the disillusioned.
Your life epitomized love, humility, dedication, and radiance. Even in death, your memories remain evergreen in most minds that came across you.
Sleep on Harrison as your legacies live on.

What a rude shock to loose Dr Harrison, my beloved vibrant, influential and motivated brother...
Your words, your influence, your passion will forever be around us....
I cried like a baby, I wish to wake up from this slumber...
My heart prays for your wife, your children, your parents and your family that you left behind..
You will forever be missed my beloved..

A brother, a friend, a colleague in the teaching department, someone that always preaches and practices genuine love amongst brethren. A soldier in God's kingdom. A life full of wisdom, an epitone of Light, shines way brighter and luminates wider than Its scope, just to strickly Impact lives when i say lives i mean all age groups especially the youth helping them find that pathway to self identify themselves and plan futuristic attainments . It's still a shock to me, because we spoke a day before, with so much tears in my eyes bro. I love you from the bottom of my heart, But God our creator Loves You More my brother, rest on Harrison...

Late night on the 17th of April 2021, suddenly your name flashed through my mind. I thought, yea it’s been a white I saw heard from you or even seen you on social media.
I said in my mind I will chat you in the morning only for me hear the next morning that you were no more.
Dr Harrrison a great team member, a kingdom brother, zealous for the work of God. Hmmmm, how will the publication unit function without you, the youths, and all?
The last time we spoke you encouraged me to pursue my correct course. When I’m about quitting, I remember your words and that if you made it , I have no excuse.
You lived. A short but fulfilled life brother and you will forever be missed and remembered.

Sleep on Teammate
Till we meet at the Fathers feet

I’m still finding it hard to believe! 
I’m still refusing to accept that our Teacher, Youth leader, Mentor and friend has left this world. 
what an amazing person! It’s true the saying “ you don’t know what you have until it’s gone” - you took the role of a Mentor, and adviser and an advocate without questioning. 
You looked out for our best interest! You genuinely cared for our future, and wanted us to make the most of our present, and for that,I’m forever grateful! 

We love you, but God almighty Loves you more!

Continue resting!
And we promise to always make you proud!
