I find it difficult to believe that you no more,I just spoke about your family. I can't forget your lovely wife. You were a great, wonderful, loving , kind and caring man. God knows best,as it was said that we are pilgrims and we will leave in different ways and times. You are free from the pain,sorrow,worries,tribulations,ups and downs of this earth. Temi,Toni and Tami are not alone,God is their everything. Rest in perfect peace Eniola

Dear Eni, it was a pleasure working with you. You were a calm, chilled-out, hardworking and professional guy. I am deeply saddened and shocked to hear of your sudden passing. My sincere condolences go out to your dear wife and adorable children. Having read all these wonderful tributes to celebrate your life, your great fun-loving character sure does shine through. I light a candle for you and may it keep glowing upon your family... Rest in peace x

Eniola! We are deeply saddened by this huge loss! Knowing you has been a long time thing; indeed it has been for a life time; you've always been there. A part of so many big moments, family milestones and nostalgic memories. We could never have imagined that this would cease so abruptly.   Our last 2 conversations had a recurring theme; you expressed your desire for us to get together, so that your children and ours could get to know one another properly. It was one of those pending things. We purpose to make that happen, many times over, by God's grace.  Thinking about your quiet, chilled- out demeanour, mannerism, integrity, humour, conversations and everything that was uniquely yours. This is a hard one to accept! We prayed for a different outcome in those last precious days; we desired for you to remain here with your loved ones. We are however faced with a different reality. May the Lord help us all to receive His peace and grace.  May He comfort and strengthen all the Adenubis and watch over this lovely family in the days and years to come. Amen. Rest in peace, dear Eni. You live on forever in our hearts.

What a terrible loss and my heartfelt condolences to Eni's family and friends. He was a smart and funny guy but more importantly a kind person. Eni - I'm glad we met and worked together, thank you. You will be sorely missed.
Posted by Grant Thomas on 9th January 2019
Eni – thank-you for all the guidance, and friendship, during your time at State Street, it will never be forgotten. Working for you was a real privilege; never a crossed word, never a temper lost. A true leader, conducting yourself with dignity, intelligence and always with a smile. You are greatly missed here.

Eniola!! I’m still in shock and can’t believe you’re gone so so soon. Oh death where is thou sting? But I must take solace and be thankful for the hope of resurrection. Oh! that I will see you and other loved ones again. Rest on my funny,happy,jovial and gentle big cousin. Rest on Big Eni!

Big Eni.. Life is indeed the leveller of all men and death truly reveals the eminent. You were a true friend. I vividly recall a whole lot of things we did together from ijanikin to ozolua to later years. You were always wise beyond your years. Very adventurous and always cheering me on in all things. I will always have these memories. The amazing thing I discovered is that you had a separate relationship with everyone you considered a friend. You touched lives during your journey in life .Truly amazing. I remember your messages on us keeping in touch and your advice on issues between brothers. Those issues all seem irrelevant now. You will be missed. Everything God does is perfect. No mistakes. May your kind and gentle soul rest in perfect peace. I pray we all take a lesson from this. Rest on my friend, rest on my Brother.

Cuz, I can’t believe you are gone! We prayed and pleaded but God had other plans. I know you are in a better place. I will miss you greatly cuz. Till we meet again.

When you have so much history with someone, when you see them you pick up where you left off without thinking about the time that has passed. It might be weeks, months or years. Eni, the last time I saw you, we picked up where we left off without missing a beat. We might not be able to do this again but the good memories we had will last forever. Rest in peace brother, you are in a better place and you will be missed.

Eniola, I am speechless!!! .....You were a towering introvert, an admirable husband to my sister, an affectionate father to my nephew and niece and an exemplary role model to the family. Humility personified and calmness incarnate. Although the grief is excruciating, your demise reminds us of the harsh reality that one day we will all join the innumerable caravan which moves grudgingly to that mysterious realm where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death. The music is ended but the melody lingers on. Adieu gentle giant.

Eni, 43 years of our rolling together in everything ends like this, you know and I know words fails me now Bro. We had plans for 2019 but alas, I guess we should just have gotten straight to it. Eni, your watch has ended but your light remains with us all, till we meet again brother. REST IN PERFECT PEACE.

It was a quite a shock to hear about Eniolas passing away. He will always be remembered as the Gentle Giant with the big smile. I pray that the Lord will be a source of comfort to the entire family. Eniola may have passed away but his thoughts,hopes and dreams is still alive with his wife and kids. Matt5:4 says blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted, the Lord will wrap His arms of comfort around the entire family.
Posted by Starr Olusola Fasaye on 8th January 2019
Eniola aka The Gentle Giant, This is still so hard to fathom, I recall our last conversation at a function and it was about doing our possible best for the kids even if it means changing post codes to get the very best in regards to schools. This is a loss too much to bear, both Seke & I are still in shock and confused and find this hard to believe. May the good Lord give you eternal rest and protect your loved ones. Rest in Perfect Peace.....
Posted by Ayo Tifase on 8th January 2019
Fate crossed our paths many years ago, and since then you have remained a friend. We did not get to see often but our conversations and chats were always “rich”… continuing from where we stopped and much more. I remember our last conversation, you asked after each of my kids and wife and told me about yours - you sounded very content and fulfilled. We would wonder and ask, Why do such things happen? We would never know and it would be eternally Painful. Eniola, you will be missed by your Family that you ”Cherish” so much and your friends that all Cherish you, but heaven has gained a Giant – Rest on dear friend
Posted by Timi A on 8th January 2019
Profound shock, numbing sadness and gut-wrenching pain were our initial reactions to the passing of this phenomenal gentleman, kind-hearted giant and sincere and loving brother, but we trust God knows best... Your gentle demeanour, warmth and patience is examplary. Good men never die, you'll live forever and ever in our hearts. Love you dearly bro. May your soul rest in peace and may your family continue to flourish and meet (and even surpass) your plans for them, by God's grace. Amen Timi and Kemi Animashaun

I still cant believe you are gone cuz. The last time I saw you was when we talked at uncle's funeral in Nigeria. If only i knew it would be the last time we would see. Eniola you will truly be missed . Rest in bossom of the Lord. Till we meet to part no more.
Posted by Dee Mak on 8th January 2019
Eniola, my big cousin. I thank God we caught up last year and took our last picture together. If it weren’t for that It would have been so long since we were together. Although you are gone memories still remain of Apapa, Mafoluku, family holidays and when we travelled to Nigeria together and got to know each other better. I miss you and I know your family misses you so much more. May God comfort us all and help us heal till we meet again.

Eniola Words fail me o Pastor Judith Langley called me in Nigeria to inform me today about your passing it so unbelievable o I moved back to Nigeria in 2013 and you assisted me once I also remember our good times at Union bank UK plc with all the crew (Judith, Jenny, chernette, shola, anna, David yomi Janet James koleade etc ) fun days and times you left us in the bank and moved to state street docklands I remember clearly your blue suit and how u were always looking Sharp God only knows but we take comfort in the fact that you are home to rest May God give your family the strength to bear this loss sleep well my friend

Eniola, I met you fall of 1998, and had just moved to the UK to study, you had just finished from Cardiff. I was busy trying to understand this information technology thing I had gotten myself into, you were trying to get your first job. Over the course of 1998 and 1999, we developed a friendship which has always surprised me with its warmth and depth of feeling. While you showed a strong face to the world, you showed great love and care to all around you including me. This ranges from your convincing me that no one should spend Christmas alone and convincing me to come over and spend time with you and Adebola for 1999 Xmas in Colindale to us agreeing to be roommates even though we have opposite personality types. Somehow we found an apartment we both agreed on and living arrangements which worked and 14 Dennis Gardens, Stanmore, becoming a rallying ground for many late weekends nights of Tekken and FIFA on the PlayStation, raucous laughter, copious amounts of alcohol and wide ranging conversation as young men tend to have. I made lifelong friends from that period, people that I expect to be close to for the rest of my life (Thank You). Fast forward to my moving away to Canada in 2002, the US in 2010 and yet every time I came to the UK for close to 15 years, you would either come and pick me up from the airport or try to find me wherever I was, no matter how inconvenient (early or late) it was. We would simply pick up our conversations where we left off last time, being friends was just that simple. Living together for close to two years, I learnt a ton by watching you, how to have a cutting wit but carry no malice, have strength while being warm, your protection and care of your siblings and the rest of your family, friends, a deep pragmatism on practically all topics while being as fun loving as the best of them. These are the qualities of a good man, friend, brother, son, husband, father to emulate. You told me once – “Kunle, you are very brave, what I should have answered is Eni, you are very strong”. We started keeping in touch more frequently in December and the friendship resumed seamlessly. “Still waters run deep” you would always say, and you lived that way, simply being there when needed. I am grateful to have known you and I am sorry to have missed many years of conversations as we have grown into middle age, life got a little busy. I will miss the conversations that we will not have but I will treasure the image of you I carry in my head, holding a drink and smiling mischievously at some personal inside joke. You were truly an E ni Ola and E ni Iyi. Rest Well My Friend Kunle Fagbamiye

Eniola Adenubi, such an amazing husband, father, brother and friend. I will forever be grateful to you and Temi for taking me into your home during my masters. I never thought people existed that could care for you despite not being family, but you proved me wrong. I pray that your gentle soul Rest In Peace, and I know God will keep Temi, Toni and Tami safe till you guys meet again.
Posted by Olubunmi Albert on 8th January 2019
My dear Eniola. A great man!!! A loving friend, a great husband to my friend and a super dad to your babies! Your favorite daughter and son!!! You were always our gentle giant, never getting upset, always eager to lighten the mood. A true gentleman always!!!! It’s so hard to write this now, as it’s still difficult for me to accept that I won’t see you. The good Lord that gave you to us has taken you for His glory! Till we meet again to part no more, Sun re!

Dearest cousin, I am so so shocked by your sudden departure. I still can’t believe it. Always with a warm smile Always with a kind heart Always to be remembered May your soul rest in perfect eternal peace.
Posted by Mariah Akande on 7th January 2019
Dearest cousin I still cannot believe you are now with God the Father. Though I am sad that you are no longer with us , I am happy because I know you are with God and smiling down. My prayer is that the good Lord strengthens your Siblings, Temi and the Kids. For we all truly miss you already. How I wish I spent more time trying to know you and bond with you but such is life. I have now learnt to truly appreciate and love those I love whilst they are living. Thank you for the few moments we shared together. You are truly loved and I am mega proud of all your accomplishments to date WOW... you truly set a standard for the rest of us to follow. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. See you in heaven when the time comes ADIEU Eni Love Maria Akande(nee Adesanya) PS: SEND MY LOVE TO YOUR MUM & DAD, AUNTY FUNSHO AND AUNTY GANI....

Dearest cuz, this happened all too soon. I am still in shock but God knows best and I know you are in a better place. You were had a very big heart, thoughtful and always fun to be around. I have so many warm memories of you from Apapa and Mafoluku. I am happy you touched many lives and I pray God comforts and strengthens Temi, Toni, Tami,your siblings and our entire family. Sleep on cuz, we love you but God loves you more.

One of the brightest minds at the bank who could instantly figure out things that took everyone else hours of careful analysis. We were lucky to have him and his passing is a great loss. My heart goes out to all Eni's family and friends.
Posted by Tope Oladiran on 7th January 2019
Eni. I remember meeting you in secondary school and the many years we spent together. I remember how we stormed your house on our last day in secondary school and how your loving mum welcomed us in our ink stained shirts. I remember the days we spent on vacation in London before gaining admission to Unilag. I remember the years we lived together throughout our stay in Unilag at Ikoli Close and Ozolua. I remember how you still jokingly called me Idagun. I remember your numerous calls and visits. I remember how you remained the same caring, witty, kind, generous person for over thirty years. I remember the precious times we spent on the golf course reminiscing about how boys became men and sons became fathers. I remember how you always talked about your love for Temi, Toni and Tami. I remember how we would talk about family, work and life in general. I remember how you always started our conversations after a round of golf about Christ with simple questions on how we could be better Christians. I remember how these conversations will go on till we were the last people left in the clubhouse. Eni, we were meant to be playing as a team at the golf competition on January 12, 2019. I never knew you would not be here. You were my best golf buddy ever. You had a calm spirit and the wisdom to solve difficult situations. Your maturity was way beyond your age. You had an infectious smile and you personified the virtue called patience. Even on the hospital bed in your very last hours, your face was as peaceful and radiant as ever. Your passing on to glory now reminds me that our time here is short and our focus must be on where we will spend eternity. We love you Eni but Jesus loves you more. Till we meet to part no more, I will always love and remember you my dear friend.

Remembering the days of Common Entrance then Ijanikin and later on in the UK. We would chat about family most times we had the chance and it was obvious how precious Temi, Toni and Tami were to you. With your infectious smile, you always had a kind word or compliment for everyone. Eniola - I pray that your gentle and kind soul rests in perfect peace.

“He’s a life that’s so overwhelming to celebrate. … He’s such a tremendous example of what can be done if you honour God as a saviour , teacher, transformer … .” It was wonderful to see how he developed to becoming an insightful Sunday school teacher …. For me l feel a higher responsibility to be as faithful to the message of Jesus Christ and to the ministry of the Gospel than never before … Thank you Rest in the peaceful bosom of Christ Jesus William Awuku
Posted by Torera Banjo on 7th January 2019
Dearest Cuz…this is a rude shock and nothing prepared us for this at all. We prayed and believed God for the best but I guess God wanted you more in His bosom. You were one of the best Eni…. a beautiful soul, kind, genuine, mischievous, extremely caring and always wanting to know how everyone was doing. You cared deeply for your family and I am glad I was one of your own. This is so difficult for us to bear Eni but my consolation is that you are resting with the Lord. I pray for God’s strength and grace for Temi, Toni, Tami and our entire family. We love you but God loves you more Eni!!!

Hi Eniola. How are you. Trust you are fine. Eniola I had no ideayou were in a hurry to meet your beloved parents. Thought you would stay here longer keeping us laughing like your Dad did. Was it not a short while ago that we would with your brothers all troop down to the national theatre to watch a movie or the other. After which we would eat hot pepper suya that was never hot enough for you. Or was it the trips to bar beach. Sincerely Eniola we will all miss you but I cant help but thank God for the good times we shared together. Good night beloved and sleep on.

A major calamity indeed this is.... Just as my family began to get closer to your family.... And getting to know you better.... Life did what it does worst.... Oye Olohun.... Lola and I would always stand by Temi and the kids.... Orun re o... Gentle Giant.....
Posted by Kunle Okunnu on 7th January 2019
This is by far the hardest thing I have had to do. Where do I start? This is so very unexpected and almost certainly too sudden. Eni, my friend, my brother, words will never be enough to describe how much you’ve meant to me. The last 26 years of close friendship (you always called me the 5th Adenubi male) have been wonderful. This definitely was not the plan. We always joked about the future, we spoke about old age and you would throw your usual banter of how I would go before you because I was older. To say I would miss you is an understatement. You always said it as it is. Your words, your cheeky smile, your kind-heartedness . . .. This pain is just too much. I am happy you lived an excellent and fulfilled life. There are so many memories I have of our friendship to hold on to; from the Unilag days, to Dennis Gardens, Borehamwood etc. I will miss you my dear friend but I have decided to celebrate you and not mourn you because I know you are in a better place resting. RIP Eniola.
Posted by Musa Abu on 7th January 2019
Eni, first time I met you we shared a joke, last time I saw you we shared a joke. I’m very happy I’ll have this memory.... May God keep you and bless the wonderful family you left behind. RIP bro
Posted by Adegboyega Kazeem on 7th January 2019
Eni Boy your passing has come as a rude and very tragic shock to me. I still remember the good times in Unilag and after but i also remember a warm, caring and very focussed brother wirh a strong love of life. I know the usual thing to say at times like this is that it is well but I can't lie - this leaves a bitter taste. However I strongly believe God has a plan otherwise nothing makes sense. Sleep well Bro and may the Allmighty be with those of Us left behind.
Posted by Gbolahan Soremekun on 6th January 2019
Growing up with you in Mafoluku was a very special time in my life. I will never forget your friendship, kindness and humor. You were a truly unique person and i'm blessed to call you a friend. I'm filled with sadness writing this but i'm so grateful that we had a chance to talk recently. As alway our last conversation brought me so much joy and satisfaction. I will miss you Eni. Rest in Peace my Brother in God's eternal kingdom. Gbolahan.

"Oluwaseun". Your name says it all. I truly thank God for you. For your life, your gentle giant smile and your honest and thoughtful spirit. For memories from "Linus" to campus life in Akoka and life in the UK in the late nineties. I will hold on to these memories of a friend and brother who is truly one of a kind. Rest in peace Eniola.
Posted by Ade Agbede on 6th January 2019
Eni......a true friend. I remember when we met not too long ago at Barnet last September at Kanu's charity match. Alot of people rushed onto the field after the game and you shouted out to me with your usual smiley face 'Dubistix'! We chatted about family, kids and life in general. You always had a nice, friendly and gentle soul! You will be sorely missed and I pray that the good Lord will comfort your wife and the children you have left behind. May your soul rest in peace.
Posted by Shola Ajibodu on 6th January 2019
Eni, you will be missed. A prefect gentleman and brother. May the Lord give your family strength during this period. Our prayers go to the them. Gone too soon.

Such a humble guy... I always remember our conversations at the Borehamwood train station and the excited look you always had for everything. I Just pray that God will take care of the family you have left behind. May your gentle soul rest in peace.
Posted by Femi Osiyemi on 5th January 2019
Eniola, still trying to come to terms that you are gone, this is indeed painful, I thank your mum and dad for raising a fine young man and the impact can be seen from the relatively shirt time you shared with us. I pray God gives your family the fortitude to bear this loss. May your gentle soul RIP. Good night cuz.
Posted by Tola Agbede on 4th January 2019
26yrs ago I met you at Dominos stores in Lagos. We became friends instantly. Growing up we lived on the same street. Strolled to each other's houses. If I needed advise on certain issues you will selflessly dedicate time to respond. Knowing me that could be over an hour on the phone. We remained friends until the very last day. The last time we spoke was on my birthday same month you passed on. As usual you took time out of your busy schedule to call. There is still so much to talk to you about. Eniola, my son's godfather, I will miss you dearly. So sad i did not get to say goodbye. May God comfort Temi, Toni, Tami, your siblings, family and friends. RIP. Still cannot believe i am typing this message.

Quiet yet always thoughtful, a gentle person who will be missed by all those who knew him. My heart goes out to your family at this difficult time. May you rest in peace dear friend.

So sad to hear the news of Eni's passing. What a gentleman and senior colleague. We worked together in Statestreet and he was such a professional and calm person. An exemplary example to emulate in the city especially for young Nigerians looking to achieve success in the financial services industry. You will be missed so much by all your friends and colleagues at Statestreet. Thoughts and prayers with Eni's wife, the children and family.

ENIOLA.. Still short of words but Isaiah 55:8-9 says; “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts” I will always remember your advice during those turbulent days in my marriage. You never took sides and will forever be grateful to you. Eternal Rest to a lovely Husband, Father, Friend and Brother!! Rest in Peace Eniola!!
