Papi, your sudden exit unto eternal glory has left us severely devastated. When I heard of the news, I was and still crushed to the core .In situations like these one may be tempted to question God but as Christians we know we are all visitors on earth and when our missions are accomplished we shall join our heavenly father unto eternity.
You have left an indelible mark in our society. I vividly remember seeing you in Bamenda at your family residence. Your warmth, beautiful smile, humility were all causes of recognition and will all be missed. You were an absolute asset to the world but your mission in heaven is even bigger. You fought a good fight little bro. You are gone but your memories will last forever. Your soul lives on doc. Farewell farewell farewell ....Adieu papi until we meet again

Dr. Frederick Morfaw was an incredible researcher at the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact at McMaster University. While I never had the opportunity to work with him closely, every time I met him on campus, he always greeted me with the biggest smile. He was quick to make friends and brought lots of positivity wherever he went. His presence and warm ambiance will be sorely missed. He gave everyone a lot to look up to - we are forever inspired by his efforts to champion maternal and child health in the most vulnerable communities in the world.

Dear Papson,
What can we say, big brother? I am still in shock following your departure. You were the big brother we had in FMBS Yaounde. The smiles you and your lovely bride sister Laura always had, lit our lives. I remember the funny names you gave us including Christopher, Chung Chung. The void you have left will always be here. We pray we meet again one day to part no more, in the land of the Living. We can only trust God to for the grace to bear the loss. I know God will look after the kids and the entire family...His eye is on the sparrow. Go well big bro. Who could love you more than the good Lord?

Frederick, I spent about 2hours with you and you were soo encouraging and promising to me encouraging my about the pursuit of my Ph.D. You committed to mentoring me. Thank you for so much for the strength, the motivation, the passion you graced this world with. May God comfort your dearest wife and children, your mum and siblings and we the community you left behind

Dr. Papson,

You were brilliant and very caring. Meeting you in high school at Sacred Heart College was a blessing. You inspired me a lot with your knowledge and unique way of doing things.

You played soccer ⚽️ and scored the only goal to win the “quartier” competition for “Marseille” at SAHECO, I was on the loosing side with “Bordeaux” on that day, but I was impressed with your victory celebrations.

Rest In Peace Bro with the Lord Almighty.

My sincerely and heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the family.

Papson,
It bothered me when I heard the news and along with the ret of the fellows we pondered what could have gone wrong. What was missed? In the end I have resigned myself to the idea that while we loved you, God needs you at his side and thus called his son back to him. Your absence lingers while we still await for that roaring laugh that was unique to you yet uplifting to all in your presence. My dear friend, he who nicknamed me pegos. I shall miss you. I looked forward to meeting the man you became but alas we missed each other on a few occasions. Fare ther well brother and until we meet again.

Papi,
You are one of a kind!
Your smile and your laughter are so unique.
I know that you are laughing with the angels while keeping an eye on Laura and the children.

Thank you for the gift of kindness, genuinesess, friendship, and togetherness. I am so sorry for not staying in touch these last years.....Regrets!
You will forever live in my heart.
Love, Ida

Dr. Frederick Morfaw and his dear wife Laura were a great big brother and big sister duo not just to Fany (his kid sister) but also to all of Fany's close friends in med. school, including me. Thank you for the joy you brought and the support you gave. Through this difficult season, I pray for God's grace and strength to Laura, the kids (Vanessa, Prince, Ricka), and the rest of the family. May Dr. Morfaw's soul rest in peace.

Is life such a dramatic illusion?

“We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep. “(Shakespeare).

Papson…. an illustrious classmate, a worthy son, a loving husband,
an exemplary father, an affectionate brother ….
you did make all who crossed your path so proud of you
leaving an indelible imprint in their lives.

You worked so hard, were so determined to attain the peak of your profession, achieved so much and brilliantly too,
were an inspiration to many yet so humble and so ‘real’ with your brethren, illuminating every gathering with your vitality……and with all these….
exiting the stage at your prime….really gone too soon!
Is this life really a dramatic illusion?

We only remain reassured that you’ve gone to meet our Maker face to face
For our hearts are restless until they in the Lord.
Adieu Papson!!!

Papi!

We were boys of similar frames when we met and you grew into the embodiment of boldness as everything you did was capped with an exclamation! From academic excellence to your expression of appreciation for humor - affectionately dubbed, the cackle - you left an indelible mark on everyone you shared the stage with. If one ever witnessed the thunderous laughter burst forth from those mighty lungs that inflated your chest and kept your posture erect, one never forgot the soul that encompassed such reckless and infectious joie de vivre. Who dared not laugh when you did?

As I read through recollections of selflessness, kindness, generosity, dedication, loyalty, commitment, and love that the grateful but heart-broken share in your memory, I am reminded of a record you set for me that remains unbroken till this day: The most hilarious piece of art I have ever seen! It was 1995 at Top Field in Sacred Heart and we'd gone out for a "League" match when Larry B. implored you to recreate a doodle you'd done earlier that afternoon during "prep." You found a twig and impressed upon the red earth, a grotesque imagery of a dismembered body part, running with tiny legs and hilarity ensued!

You lived with such emphasis that left a bold space on your departure. Journey well, Papi, for though our meeting was brief, your impact underscored its importance and leaves me forever blessed and thankful!

Papson as you were fondly called. You were a very jovial friend always smiling and cheerful. Memories of you from our sacred heart college days are still alive. When we met in December 2019 in London Ontario little did I know it was our last but as usual you lit up that day with laughter and jokes. Rest well my friend and may God protect the family you left behind. It hurts. Adieu Papson. Gone too soon.

Papson

I have known you since we were in primary school in Foncha's
Street Bamenda, then for 7 years in Sacred Heart College, Mankon.

Thanks for all those years.

Thanks for the memories.

Thanks be to the Father, you made you like himself.

Thanks be to the Son, who saved you by his death.

Thanks be to the Spirit, who creates the wold anew.

I will always love you
Posted by Bame Lawrence on June 24, 2020
Papi! I could write a whole book on the experiences you and I had from when our life paths intersected ... I learnt vital life lessons from you which kept me going in tough times - humility, simplicity, generosity and an incredible sense of humour ..... You were so devoted to your work when you worked in Bamenda where you delivered my sister-in-law of her son Bame Nethan and you refused payment because of our brotherhood.... I'm still in pain and tears asking why? why? why? ..... only God knows why .... Farewell brother, I will miss you ....
Posted by Afeseh Hilary on June 24, 2020
Ikomi,

You touched us through and through, many times in ways we didn't fully appreciate when you were here with us. You touched us in ways now painfully evident in hindsight as the verity of your passing sinks in slowly still. You touched us with your humor and warmth and laughter and focus and vision and understanding and brilliance and kindness and authenticity and sheer humanity. You touch us now with the confusing pain of your sudden absence from this delicately fragile life. A life brief yet so fully lived. Thank you for all you were, all you gave and all we shared. We cherish the lessons learned and the fire you lit in our hearts. You are gone but forever here.

I am still in denial!

Fare thee well brother... Rest well!

Papson, still struggling to come to terms with the thought that you have left us physically. However I'm comforted knowing that for the person you were, your spirit will remain with us forever especially through your wife and kids. You cared so much about women fatality during childbirth and did your very best to change this narrative. I will always respect and admire you for this. Hopefully we will be able to continue your legacy in our own little way....Rest in the Lord my dear bro. Your family is in our prayers. Till we meet again...
Posted by Clement Tala on June 23, 2020
Dear Papson,
you never needed words to leave a lasting impact on people's lives. you were unique in every way . Your kindness, generosity and selflessness will live on forever. There is definitely a lot less laughter in the world today. Adieu mon frere, till we meet again.
Posted by Kilian Asangana on June 23, 2020
Where am I going to start?

I remember how disappointed you were when I told you I could not make it home to be your best man.

When I visited you in Scotland in 2008 you told me you knew when I heard you were in Scotland I would catch the next flight to Scotland to visit you and though due to work constraints I could not catch the next flight, I did manage to catch the flight after next.

I remember you telling me you knew I was never going to forget your 40th birthday.

There are so many things I could say but that cannot and will never take away the pain of losing my dear friend Ikomi.

I hope you knew how much you meant to me, how much I cherished your friendship. Journey well bro. Much love always.

Kilian

My dear brother Fred Morfaw, words cannot Express the sadness of your passing on to eternal glory. Your death is the worst thing that happened to me in 2020. Big Fredo with the beautiful smile, always smiling and above all the best clown I have known all my life. Thank you for all the days of laughter and jokes. You made me laugh out my lungs each time I met u. Your determination inspired me a lot. Fred I have been asking God why? But God knows best. If tears could bring you back, I would cry an ocean. You made our Mandela Washington fellowship journey amazing with all your fun. Our hearts are broken. May the Lord be the strength of my Sister Laura and the kids. Fred we will forever miss you. Go well and prepare a place for us. May ur gentle soul rest in peace.

Your life on earth was brief but meaningful and significant. You knew what you wanted from the genesis and stuck to it with resilience. Your character and determination was legendary. You will be dearly missed. Your legacy lives on.
RIP Bro.

Papson as you were fondly called by many, your sudden departure has greatly saddened the entire family and your loved ones. I have wondered and asked so many unanswered questions, why u? why now? how could life be so cruel? just when life was about to blossom promising a blissful future, full of your desired dreams and ambitions., at a time when you had just reached the pinnacle in your prestigious career and it was time for you to greatly impact the world with your unfettered knowledge, the cold hand of death exits you from the stage. Ikome, Your death has really created an everlasting vacuum.
A loving and caring brother you were and a shining star of the family as everyone looked up to you, indeed you were our star brother and husband and you proved it beyond measure. Each time I talked with your mum it did not end up without her mentioning your name, you were a true son of your parents in whom they were well pleased.
The moments I spent w you guys were priceless and you gave your all, your sweet entertaining sense of humour, your hospitality, your laughter, the joy and happiness that reigned in your home was such a blessing. Weyyyyy papi your death is so devastating, you have left us lifeless, your wife Laura is weak and weary, her heart bleeds, your siblings are heartbroken, we are all wondering where you have disappeared to, certainly to a better place as the Bible preaches, were there is no struggle and pain, no tears, where the pastures are green.May the heavens receive you as you wait for us within the gates of heaven where the children of God will all gather. fare thee well beloved friend and brother.Forever in our hearts

Frederick,

A toi les fleurs, à nous les pleurs...
A nous les pleurs, à nous le rire...

Ce rire, ton rire résonnera à jamais dans nos cœurs.

Nous étions de la 30e promotion de la FMSB. Nous avions ton rire en cadeau.
Qui ne se souvient pas de ce fou rire, parfois innatendu, qui émanait de ton cœur et telle une belle onde embrassait la classe, ou du moins tes compagnons ?

Je dirais volontiers que ton rire était aussi éloquent que tes prises de parole passionnées dans un bilinguisme recherché !
Il n'enlevait rien au sérieux, au courage, à l'abnégation dont tu as fait preuve tout au long de ton parcours professionnel plein de challenges.

Ton rire était pourtant long, il n'en a pas été de même pour ton souffle de vie, raccourci à notre goût.
Une vie qui est pleine d'amour et d'humour est une belle vie.
Tu nous précède Papson, For Ever in our Heart!
Posted by Elvis Ndoko on June 23, 2020
Like a Candle in the Wind you brought forth light into our lives & children but then gone too soon...

Big Fredo,

It is extremely sad that I have to be writing a tribute for you, it is so tragic that the world has to lose a person with nothing but such a beautiful soul. You were nothing but the light wherever you went, you always sparked up the room with your contagious humor. I can go on and on but it would just hurt me more that we are all deprived of your graceful presence. Rest in Peace bro.
Posted by Eric Besong on June 22, 2020
Big bro Fred,
News of your passing is still like a dream to me. Memories of our meeting last year in Bamenda keeps hitting me.
You were unique in many ways, your presence always ignited a sweet special kind of feeling.
As you go, continue to watch over Laura and the kids.

Go well brother!
Posted by Ibeh Alvan on June 22, 2020
Times like this comes when we ask God "Why?. But if we listen carefully we will hear him say, " there is always a reason for everything ". That reason is always know to him alone. Be consoled dear friends on the death of our beloved brother. I pray that God will welcome him to his kingdom and that He will console you all. May he rest in perfect Peace. You are in my prayers.

EULOGY: On the occasion of the passing of Frederick Morfaw, MD, PhD by Dr Fidelis Morfaw

EULOGY ON THE OCCASION OF THE PASSING OF FREDERICK MORFAW, MD, PhD
Frederick’s father, the late Justice Morfaw, was my friend. His children and mine grew up together. So, my sympathy goes to all those impacted by Fred’s death. 
I am usually not radical in the way I tackle things. I am no radical. Far from it. 
I also try not to jump to conclusions, no matter the subject.
Ultimately, I think I am a realist.
Perhaps as a result of my age and experience.
But, not necessarily.
Therefore, the sudden death of Frederick should not be approached with drama.
Does it hurt? Sure, it does.
Was his death a surprise? Obviously, yes.
Do you think he was expecting death? Certainly not this early.
We respond to things that hurt,
To surprises,
To expectations,
To disappointments,
Even to happy events, only as HUMANS.
We also tend to respond to events one event at a time.
Yesterday, I sent a small cheque to St Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN.
St Jude specializes in childhood cancers. Childhood cancers?
There were some 400,000 childhood cancers in the world in 2018.
Some of the patients at St Jude are only a few months old.
I couldn’t resist asking myself ‘Why do babies have cancer?’
‘Why does disease happen?’
‘And why do young men die?’
Unless we detach ourselves from things that hurt,
From things that surprise us,
From things that disappoint us,
And why not, from things that please,
We cannot attain true peace.
Death is always a surprise, but it affords us an opportunity for reflection and to find true peace.
And so, I invite Frederick’s spouse, his children, his mother, 
His friends, his family … to step back from this calamity and reflect deeply.
Let us not react as if we will never see Fred again.
We must cultivate what Bishop Barron calls radical trust in the Almighty.
He loves us, and will surely take care of Fred’s family.
To react negatively to pain, to disappointments, even to death
Is, in my view, to indulge in FEAR. Yet, with God, there is no FEAR.
Frederick, remain in the peace of the Lord. We will see you again!

Eulogy: In Memory of Frederick Morfaw - Rtd Justice Charles Njuzy 

Eulogy: In memoriam of Frederick Morfaw, 1980-2020 - Lawrence Mbuagbaw

My name is Lawrence Egbe Mbuagbaw. I am in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Papi is a friend, colleague, student, and many other things. I first met Papi at St John’s Primary School in Bamenda in 1988. We used to play football, do gymnastics, and stroll up and down Foncha’s street. We also went to medical school together and did the same postdoctoral fellowship. I was his groomsman and he was my groomsman. In fact, we got married within 3 weeks of each other.
Papi was smart and hardworking. I will not list his academic accomplishments here, but I was there with him when most of them happened. He loved to laugh and find humor in everything. Most importantly he loved his family and was willing to go to great lengths to give them the best.
I started thinking of my fondest memories with Papi and there were too many to pick from. But this one was Papi’s favorite. He always reminds of how we used to run away from bullies in primary school. We were the smallest kids in class, but we could run fast. We would look for trouble and then run away together and sit down and laugh at our adventures later.
During the summer holidays, Papi would keep one ticket for the Sacred Heart Party for me and I would keep one ticket for the Sasse party for him.
When faced with adversity, Papi would say “Massa Mbuaby”! and we would troubleshoot solutions together.
Papi is probably my oldest friend, and I will miss him dearly. I will miss his smile, his laugh, I will miss watching him play with his kids and I will miss watching him giving scientific presentations.
I know he will live on in our hearts and in our minds as we cherish the impact he had on our lives. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends and all those who knew him
Thank you.

Dear Fredo,
This photo right here reminds me of the spirit of 'ubuntu' which you always promoted and in barely 6weeks that we all lived together in Miami, you proved yourself to be our livewire, connecting everyone of us in a unique manner.
We were all broken on this day when we ourselves demonstrated the web nature of life, which meant that we could not live without the other.
This was the life you lived and loved, caring and thinking about the other person. You worked tirelessly and always sacrificed your time and energy for the survival of women and their unborn babies. Even during our fellowship in the US, where you should have taken time off work, you literally adopted I and Cynthia who were pregnant as your special patients; always checking my baby's heartbeat  and well being. And in all of this you still depended on the Almighty who directed your work.
I could go on.... 
Dear Papi, you were once here and you lived life, and you made life worth living for many with your grace, humour, captivating moments and commitment to your calling as a doctor. I am sure you are already making the Heavens lively  up there....

Rest well brother....
May the mercy and love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus enable you see the light of God's face. Amen

Que le Seigneur soit toujours avec ta famille, en particulier ta femme et tes enfants dont tu as toujours parlé au nom de Jesus Christe. Amen

Frederick, bro!!! 
Sept ans en médecine générale, puis 5 ans en spécialisation. Tu n'avais pas changé, cette authenticité qui faisait ta particularité, ce rire mythique. Que dire?? Tu es parti trop tôt et si brutalement. On respecte la volonté divine.
Que le Seigneur veille sur ta charmante épouse, tes enfants et soutienne ta famille éplorée.
Repose en paix.
