Grandpa was an amazing and a loving father. A father who never discriminates. He loved everybody as tho they were his children. Many many things I have learnt from you and one of those things is *giving*. Words can't describe how amazing, loving and caring you were. We all love you but God loves you more. You will forever live in our hearts

When l heard of his demise, it was a bittersweet experience!!!!. Bitter because he is gone forever and sweet because of the memory he left behind. GRANPA was a loving father in all ramifications. I remembered moments where he often times narrates stories of great people who are left-handed to motivate and encourage me!. His advice was like a light to my feet, it guides in the days of adversity. I wouldn't forget sweet memory of him as a disciplinarian benefit of which l still enjoy till date..........l will so much miss you GRANPA...You will forever live in my heart!!!!! Goodnight Grandpa Samuel Olakorede

From Prof. Gbola Gbolagunte. Tribute to a special Father-in-Law. It is rare to have a Father-in-law like you. You were an epitome of humility,full of love, and a bundle of intellect. Many may not know it, but you were an intellectual powerhouse. Your small body frame was deceptive - an affirmation that dynamite comes in small packages. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations together. I leant a whole lot from you. You had your special gift of avoiding conflict especially with those that you hold in high esteem. Love of family and tradition was your greatest asset. The wonderful legacy you've left behind will not dim. Sleep on with the assured love of Christ. Prof. Gbola Gbolagunte

My wonderful Grandpa Words cannot be enough to describe how wonderful and generous you were... You were just an excellent Grandpa, I could remember when my story started with you back then in Ile-Ife, all the elderly wisdom and lessons you passed down to me. Grandpa: A caring disciplinarian, I remember your chastising method, which you always do in fatherly love.... Having you around has always been a wonderful moment for me because we get to discuss so much of history, politics, health and science......one of such moments was in 2016 when you asked me to describe the possibility of a dead body not decaying in reference to your mum (my great grandmother)..... I will surely miss learning from your wealth of wisdom and knowledge Grandpa. You lived a great life, a life worth of emulation. You will forever be in my heart till we meet again. Good night Pa Fadeyi !!!! Olakorede Paul Oyetunde...

I have heard so much about you before we finally met, I must say you were indeed meticulous just as my husband had described you. You were extremely loving and the happiness in you could not be hidden, you gave me a gift I will forever cherish and some money. It was not the size of the money that touched me , but the generosity embedded in your heart. You have a heart of gold and you waste no time in sharing the wealth of your wisdom and knowledge each time we visit likewise everyone around you. You were one in a million , a very rare man. I am so grateful to God for your life which you lived to touch many lives. Good night Grandpa. Olufunke Junaid.

Just like that......you passed into glory . My beloved Grandpa, Our relationship was unique in many ways and you nourished it with love, trust,care and deep belief in me. You were my life coach, you taught me sacrifice, kindness, Generosity, Faith, Perseverance and Virtue at a very tender age and kept at it. There were many Crossroads I got to in life and deep dark nights and I remembered your wise counsels. They were far more than rubies. They saved me from many hassles. Without any doubt, you lived a fulfilled life. You remain my hero even in death and I will forever treasure the memories. Goodnight Grandpa. Oludare Junaid.

Tribute To Daddy G.A. Fadeyi. I couldn't believe when I heard of your passing on the 19th March 2019. Who am I to ask God but He knows why you were called to Him. Ever since I knew you in August 2007, you have been wonderful to me. Words are not enough to describe your virtues and qualities. You were just too good. You were loving to everyone you came in contact with. You were passionate about your beliefs and a gentle soul, yet very approachable and considerate. You were also a generous giver. Any time you came to visit us in Lagos, the house helps were always happy that grandpa was around because they knew that grandpa would reach out to them in cash and in kind. You went to Canada to rest and still brought gifts for all the family members, which you didn’t have to but you did because you are a kind soul. I remember last Christmas when Bidemi Oyeniran and the family came to visit you at Ila, you gave Daniel a treasure that he would cherish for a long time to come. He was gifted your portfolio bag, which I believe meant a lot to you. You instructed him not to use it until his graduation from University. What a kind and thoughtful Grandpa you were!!!. I am blessed to have known you. I remember how you would call me severally on the phone praying for me and advising me as your younger sister. You were always after everyone’s well-being. You would call regularly at any occurrence that we can learn from …you would call me and ask me to tell Toyin and Akin like you rightly call Bidemi, Toyin’s husband not to store petrol in the house. Another instance was when you heard something on the news about armed robbers pretending to be beggars….you called to let us know that we shouldn’t wind down the car door to give a beggars money because beggars nowadays could be an armed robber or a ritual killer. That’s just how you were, articulate and well informed. Dr. Dare, Bro Gbenga, Aunty Ebun, Toyin and others please cheer up!!! Daddy has gone but the good works he left behind shall remain ever fresh in our memories. He is resting at the bosom of the Lord. He came to world, he fought and he conquered the world. Grandpa we love you but Jesus loves you more. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace in Jesus name. Amen Sun re o. GRANDMA OYENIRAN

Oh Wonderful Grandpa, I feel so emotional writing this but yet overjoyed that you are now in a better place. You were impeccable and extremely admirable. No matter how far we are you stayed connected. I still read your text messages like it was sent yesterday. You always showed concerned. I wish my daughter could meet you. But I will make sure I tell her about how great a legacy you left behind. I still hear your voice when you would call me and ask how I'm doing. OH WHAT A MAN! Thank you for caring. Thank you for loving. Thank you for training my own dad to also be a great father. You will be missed. Love you deeply Till we meet at the foot of the cross Your granddaughter Tomilola Fadeyi Donkor

Grandpa having you as a father, teacher and mentor as your third son was a great gift and blessing from the God of all grace for me and my entire family members. Dad, your wholehearted love and commitment to help and bless your children and fellow men as left an enduring legacy on my own life's purpose. Grandpa, your steadfast love and faithfulness expressed through your noble character, moral uprightness and principled lifestyle you imbibed in me had made me a winner in Christ Jesus.

You are a rare gem of inestimable value to me, my heart and my soul shall continue to praise God and magnify Him for the good and honorable life you have lived for Him.

God has given you the victory through Christ Jesus and we that you have left behind shall surely uphold that banner of truth, love, mercy and righteousness till we meet again at the lord’s feet. In Jesus precious name. Amen Adieu my lovely Dad.

Grandpa, it’s your “ST” singer, I remember every time I came visiting, you would always call me “Oyinkansola Olorin” and ask me to sing for you. It’s amazing how you knew all your grand children and great grandchildren even to the schools we attended and what we studied. It was always fun around you, I’m happy I knew you. You were a rare gem, a Father to all. You will be greatly missed! Adieu Granddaddy! Your grand daughter, Oyinkansola Gbolagunte

Baba, you are a rare gem. Living with you while growing up was a blessing that can never be snatched from me. You are well detailed in training and building up a child. I remembered the way you do call me to order. You will emphatically call me: yemiii! yemiiii! how can you be writing for me this way? Yemi come and read this letter for me. Yemi I want you to be hard working like your daddy so that you can be a good child to them tomorrow. Am glad I am now, thank you sir. All those senses and disciplines are playing out now. I learnt how to cook and make ogi from you daddy. I was a little stubborn growing up but wow, you tamed me. Am glad you knew Christ before your last breath. Baba fadeyi, sun re o. O di gbere.

I thank God for my father's life. He sure lived well. My joy today is the fact that he gave his life to Christ and served him till is last breath. My father, so loving yet firm, a disciplinarian yet warm. He calls me even more than I call him (funny isn't it but that's who my father was). He calls me THE LAST OF THE APOSTLES, he even saved my number on his phone as same,what am humorous father I had. He lived to see his grand and great grand children, they will all miss him.(Praise still doesn't believe you have gone to rest, she tells me I should stop saying it, that it's not possible). You saw us all through school. You were very articulate, and finiky. You say it as it is. What you don't want, you don't watch... Despite your eye sight problem, you didn't allow it prevent you from doing all you aspired to do, you didn't give up! I have taken that from you and it's my driving force till today and will be forever. Will miss your calls,your text messages to all of us,your warning text messages because you listen to the news and you alert us quickly even before we hear it. That's how thoughtful you were dad, I heard this statement from your mouth: DO NOT HIRE THE PERSON YOU CANNOT FIRE! This was your advice to my husband many years back. Who will not adore a father like you. I can go on and on. Will stop here for now. Missing you dad, I am ... The last of your apostles Oluwatoyin Fadeyi-Oyeniran
