Growing up and having you as my Father is a gift I cherish and always thank God for. I couldn't have asked for a better Father. My dad was a very good, God-fearing, dedicated, hardworking and caring man. He never joked with us his children especially in the area of our spiritual lives and academics. He made sure we were all educated and would go to any length to ensure we were well cared for. He was a jovial and kindhearted person such that there was no dulling moments when he was around. I remembered while Growing up my father will never finish his food, he always intentionally leave some food and meat in his plate so we the children could have it, as result of this everyone of my siblings always wants to clear his table so as to be the one to enjoy the benefits. He was a disciplinarian but with a heart of love. He was a great husband, father, father in-law and a wonderful grandfather. I miss you father, thank you for being a godly example and for leaving a good legacy for all that came in contact with you. Sleep on FATHER.

Tribute in Respect of Late Oladosu Festus Adeniran
Precious in the Sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints Psalm 116: 15
To God be the glory for a life well spent by Late Oladosu Festus Adeniran, who served the Lord and Otun Baptist Church Saki in different capacities. His contributions to the development of Otun Baptist Church Saki were huge. Till his last breath, he was the grand patron of the Royal Ambassadors (Olaleye Chapter), he remained the patron of Ireti Ogo society of the Church till his demise. Baba was kind, generous and hospitable. Our prayer is that God will console and uphold the family he left behind in Jesus name.

Church Secretary
For and on behalf of Otun Baptist Church, Saki.

It was with deep shock that we received the news of the demise of Pa Festus Oladosu. Nevertheless, we took solace in the Lord and
commiserate with the family left behind. Our prayer is that God will comfort and grant the family left behind the fortitude and strength to bear the departure and vacuum created by the death.
The counsel to be taken from Pa Festus Oladosu's demise is a reminder that we are all dust and shall return to dust one day. Therefore, fix your relationship with God and continue to lay up heavenly treasure so that when your works here are done, you shall have a place in God's Kingdom.
We pray that the mercies of God remain with the family and keep you safe in Christ and make you worthy till his coming. Peace! From Rev. and Mrs Richard Adetola PhD.

Loves leave a memory no one can steal but death leaves a memory no one can heal.
Father 'as popularly called among the family's members.
We little knew that day that God was going to call your name.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home
Well, the purpose of creation is not to live Methuselah, who was only known by his age, you have come to play your own part by serving humanity.
No wonder, you are fondly called DOSU WOLEWOLE by the community's.
I can vividly remember your teachings, your dedication to works as a civil servant, the ways you remember past memories with exalt dates and times, coupled with your sharp memories .
My father, it's you have gone, whom will I turn to for fatherly advice, no one to call father again.
No matter how old we are, losing one's father is one of the deepest sorrow a heart can know but I am consoled by the scriptures. Ecclesiastes 3v2 i.e.. To everything there is a season and time to every purposed under the heavens. A time to be born and a time to die.
Oh! Oh! My beloved father, tears like a mild stream dropped from my eyes when reality arose that I can never see you again in life except in my dreams.
ADEIU my dearest father continue to rest in peace.
Sun re ooooo.
Your son
Alade

TRIBUTE TO OUR DEAREST DADDY, PA. FESTUS ADENIRAN OLADOSU(1936-2021).

Death is one of the inexplicable irony of life. Someone can be full of life in a moment and in another moment, he is gone and we are left with the frustration of referring to him in the past tense.

On behalf of Bethel Baptist Church, Sanngo, Saki, I write to commiserate with your family on the passing to glory of your highly esteemed father Pa. Festus Adeniran Oladosu.

The last time I was with him he was telling how he wished to join God where he is working in the life of missionaries in our Church, he said the work had to commence because he had a little time left.

Whenever he engaged in any discussion with you, you would not want him to stop. It really amazed me that Baba's intelligence was still sharp even until his death.

In relationship with him when he was alive, I discovered that no day passed by without gaining wisdom from him. Sincerely speaking I also will miss him.

We had a dramatic departure the last time we were together before he was sick, he called me more than three time and said "my Revd. Dr., " I enjoyed your last Wednesday sermon on radio. Keep it up". I didn't know that was last time we would seat together.

Papa has gone, but his legacies lives. We would never forget him. May God comfort all of us, particularly his immediate family and give us the grace and fortitude to bear the great loss. Good night Baba.

-Revd. Dr. & Mrs. Christopher Adewuyi, Pastor, Bethel Baptist church, Sanngo, Saki.
