You have departed, leaving your dear ones behind with your memories. It is difficult to imagine our lives without a friend who has been a strong support, a great motivator and a friend for life. Rest in Peace Jide Olowolagba

Babajide Olowolagba, I am speechless. A beautiful soul that never gets angry. Always smiling. My heart aches but God loves you the most. May God grant his family the fortitude to bear this great loss. Sleep on my brother. Rest In Peace Jide.

Jide, you were such a gentle soul, calm even in the face of provocation. We cannot question God, but I’m still in shock as to why good people die young. You needed the rest after a long drawn battle, you will be sorely missed. You are gone too soon, but we know the Lord is your host now, and in that we take solace. Rest on my brother

Bro Jide, the gentle big brother I grew up to know. My heart bleeds to know you are gone but I celebrate the good life you lived. One thing that can't be ignored about you is your smile, calmness. You are a gentleman to the core.

God will strengthen and uphold Aunty Lara and the kids. And also console your parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and family.

Your legacy and good works will always be cherished. We love you and you will surely be missed. Rest in the blossom of our Lord Jesus Christ Bro Jide..

It was a shock when I heard at first, I felt deeply pained and heart grieved , because he has been a role model to me, in some of my perceptions to life...But on the second thought I felt why can't humans be filled with joy instead of grief over beloved lost?
Its a heavy thing to bear tho.

But

I personally decided,  to embrace love ❤and happiness coupled with thanksgiving at this moment over the life of my beloved brother JIDE OLOWOLAGBA a mentor, a true father, a simple and very kind hearted church member, a respectable personality, a time disciplined fellow, and all in all someone who has impacted many lives and loved by all.

You Live on brother! 
and I believe this is just a transit into a life beyond all limits. I am sure you would want everyone to feel as happy as you being here with us. You forever remain a blessed one in all our hearts.❤.
May God Almighty continue to uphold your family and may HIS Grace become abundant for eternity over the Children and thier mother. ‍‍‍

You live on!!!

I grew up knowing you as one of my elder ones and have always known you as Bro. Jide and you have never fallen short of it.

I knew you all my life as one of the most caring brothers on earth and one who could never miss to say Happy Birthday to me except in 2019, didnt know you were going through something we didnt have control over.

Helped me in Account assignments in Secondary school.

Didn't know seeing you at the party on the 17th of November, 2019 will be my last of seeing you Egbon mi. As usual, you were so caring and excited to see me, Dayo eat, Dayo drink, Dayo hope you and your sister Tayo are keeping in touch....

I was hesitant to write but reading through what everyone has written about you Bro. Jide, I am confident and proud to have had you as a Big Brother who has only cared about everyone around him.

We will miss you and I pray that God be with your loving wife and kids and keep them strong.

Egbon mi Sun re o. Till we meet to part no more.

Your departure still left me speechless and the vacuum you left behind as a friend and senior colleague can never be filled by anyone. The imagination and memories of your soft spoken words has refused to be erased in my mind and left tears rolling through my eyes. I asked myself every morning after hearing that you passed on to glory “why do good and nice people die early“? You were always ready to help, very generous, humble, highly intelligent and most importantly peace loving fellow. You fought a good fight and at the time we thought you have won the fight and hoping to see you back on your feet again but death took you away from us. All I can say is that God Almighty grant you eternal rest and give the family and friends you left behind the fortitude to bear your lost. “Olowo” as I fondly call you, we love you but God Loves more. REST IN PEACE Babajide Olowolagba

You were the definition of a gentleman. You were very calm and a very good friend. I know we had not spoken for a long time but I still have fond memories of us growing up together and the parties we used to have organised by you and your friends. I remember how you were there consoling me when we lost Tope. I wish you were still here but God knows best. You will always be in our heart because you are unforgettable. We will love you always. Rest In Peace

I am here to celebrate your life
And the measure of its worth
And every single time you touched my life
While you were on this earth.
I wish to pay my last respect.
To thank you for your friendship
And all the memories i hold dear.
It's been a privilege to have known you.
We were family, not just friends,
I ‘ve known you for over 20 years,
And i wish i never had to say good bye to you brother
I cannot get over the shock!
Sleep on my Friend ...

Hmmmm.....I don't know how best to describe you Uncle Jide..Your death came as a Shock to me and I couldn't help but shed tears that day and I still feel pain within me...How can I forget how helpful you were to me I remember when I always run to you when I'm having difficulties in my Financial accounting back in secondary school Rest in peace uncle...I'll miss you dearly...
Posted by Abiola Adebayo on February 9, 2020
A good heart has stopped beating, but a heart that has touched many lives can't help but live on in those it loved.
Dear brother, your heart may have stopped beating, but your good heart will not be forgotten.
We love you, but God loves you more. Rest on brother.
Posted by Damilola Familusi on February 9, 2020
Knowing you from afar, i could still tell that you were a perfect gentleman. Hearing from different people these past days about the impact you made, makes it harder to understand. It is sad that you had to go at this time, but God knows best.

May God continue to comfort, strengthen and be with your wife my darling friend Lara , your lovely children and your loved ones.
Rest in peace Jide Olowolagba

Hummmmm Babajide my Brother & my Friend, I cant get the words to express how I feel but am very grateful to GOD because growing up with you and knowing you has been a wonderful experience, your calmness & strength had always been a thing of courage to me.
I take solace in the fact that you knew, walked & worked with GOD, therefore am strong in faith that we will surely meet and never depart again in the present of GOD Almighty. Súnré o omo Akin

Hmmmm, i didn't know i will be writing tributes about you too soon my big egbon bro jide you are a such a caring person to everyone who comes in contact with you... I could remember your words for me then. When grandpa was admitted into ikeja teaching hospital you said am I ok with the job am doing that i should send you my cv which you wanted the best for me.. and i told you that i want to go into teaching line and you were concerns like they don't pay much like that you wanted the best for me... likewise you said myself and omotayo don't want to work in banking industry (that it's fine).... which you pray for me.. you always putting on a smiling face at all time. Am always looking forward in seeing if there is any occasion in grandpa house which will make me to see you... who is going to call me "monsura".. the monsura happen to be my own late mum's name... I wish you be around to see me get married but God understands everything.. You have a large heart of Gold for all and always create that family bonds anytime any day... I miss you dearly and I love you. but God loves you more .
Posted by Temitope Ibuoye on February 9, 2020
Jide, where do i start from, the look in your eyes.....the smile on your lips.....the way you talk.....your Yoruba diction..... the tone of your voice....its pitch, i will miss everything about you. I wish Torera got to know you more, my favorite of the family, my Baba . . . as i fondly called you, those times in Iwaya will forever be golden, i looked forward to Sunday afternoons and force our way there cos i knew you will be there, and days i dont see you, i waited angrily till you came just to get you to smile at me and say u sorry, even tho there was nothin to be sorry for. Your mum always wondered what was up with me as Lara beams at me with her wide grin and beautiful wide eyes. May God give all your family the Grace to bear the loss, cos you are too good to go, just like that? I never had a chance to say goodbye?

I never knew Granpa's birthday would be the last time we would see, you noticed my tears when no one else did, you could see beneath all the gyration that it wasnt me, you saw the weight, took time to see me off and listened to me cry my heart out, you were there for me when i needed it, and i am so sorry i couldnt return the favour; i didnt know. You helped my mind, to see things better and the closure got clearer, thank you.... i will always love you, the comfort of having you might have been taking away, but not that of having had you, i'm glad our path crossed and i will always keep the silent lessons, Rest on dear friend in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ, He knows best and we TRUST HIM

I write this with deep sober reflection over the unexpected and untimely deathof Brother Jide Olowolagba.

He was gentle, kind-hearted, cheerful, and down to earth.

Hmm! Death is inevitable, Brother Jide has run his own race, though it may be short but left good values behind, not only for his family but also for others.

Our prayer to God Almighty is to make the soul of the departed rest in peace.

I thank God for the good life you lived, the values and legacies you left behind. We pray God keep and strengthen your wife (Sister Lara), your two kids, siblings and all you left behind.

You will forever be missed. All Sunday School Children and Youth Organization members of CCC Owodunni parish will miss you.

Good night! 
Rest in peace!!
Posted by Adeola Olowolagba on February 8, 2020
I pen this with a very heavy heart, I have a lot to say but I really don't know where to start from. You were such a gentleman, you touched many lives with your kindness, caring, loving and peaceful nature. You were always there for the family. You cared and shared so much!
Never did we think you will leave us so soon, you were all I could ask for in a brother-in-law, it has been a wonderful privilege to have know you.
May you rest in the hands of the Lord who gives and takes.......Rest in perfect peace my beloved brother, till we meet to part no more.

Hmmm still in doubt of his demise
Cos uncle jide(like we call him the Sunday school) has been a wonderful man and the best uncle to all the Sunday kids of my set in ccc owodunni parish, he made me realize what life truly means and if not for uncle jide i would have been a miscreant and a nuisance in the society but with him i was a changed person.... I will forever miss you and you will forever be in my heart continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord

He's a bubly dude, full of life, an apt definition of perfect gentle guy,good spirited with positive soul, astute family man so passionate of his wife and kids. A great confider with shyful social life...the go-to guy blessed with immense wealth of knowledge, astoundingly brilliant so much it exhumes excellence at all time, extremely gentle like a water lilly. This piece does not completely speak of your rare attributes but a definition of who you are and what you have become in your short journey to this world. Babajide you are a blessed soul to every lives that have come in contact with you; but we find solace in the feelings that the creator has called you to take an eternal rest by his side. May the Almighty in his infinite mercy repose your soul and guide, protect and strengthen everything/souls you have labored so hard for. We love you brother.... #RestOn.

This is too much to bear and words will never be enough to express the grief I feel...

I go to bed hoping I would wake up and it's all a dream but the ache in my heart snaps me back to reality, you've taken a piece of my heart with you and it can never be replaced

I will miss your weekly visits to my house after a hectic day at work
And then I would say to you....brother Jide stop stressing your self
And you would say ....my one and only (as you fondly call me) i don't have another sister ,i will look for you even if you're in a hole(lol),no amount of stress can stop me

I'll miss our siblings group chats and your constant calls to check up on me....oh my spirit is crushed!

You were such an amazing soul with a large heart,you saw only good in people and treated them as such and I'm thankful to God that you came to this world as my brother.....

You've left your body behind but I'm confident that you're home with our lord

Your one and only loves you always



Thessalonians 4:13-14

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
Posted by Samuel Adewunmi Senbanjo on February 8, 2020
I write this with great sadness over the unimaginable loss of Jide.

Jide was a good friend and colleague to me, his gentle and caring nature was the first thing you noticed about him. I always admired how he never judged or forced his opinions on anyone, but offered valuable and truthful advice; that I will surely miss.

He was kind-hearted, cheerful and down to earth. He was a dutiful husband and a wonderful father to his two children and laid a strong foundation for them.

His wonderful spirit and strong values will continue to live on through his children, and they will always know how much he loved them. He tried with all his heart to stay for them and Lara, but God called him home, and he had to go.

Now that Jide has run his race, however short it may have been; he is finally resting with God. He rests with the knowledge that he did his best as a father, a husband, a son, a brother and a friend.

Jide, you are forever in our hearts and you will always be remembered.

Good night,

Adewunmi

It's okay to miss you,
It's okay to cry.
Just know I'll never forget you.
This isn't a permanent goodbye.

Sometimes I sit and wonder
If you are standing by my side,
Giving me the courage
To carry on with pride.

I'll hold onto our memories,
Until this life is done.
In my heart is where I'll store them,
Where we can be as one.

When I think of the words that capture your essence - I think: simply genuine, simply gentle, simply kind, simply humble, simply beautiful. You always had comforting and encouraging words and your laughter sang to the soul. The love you had for family simply defies words Mr Peacemaker. May the Lord God, creator of all things - embrace you into His fold and watch over your wife and children at this time.

Father in heaven we ask not why but thank you for the many blessings you used this precious soul to perform. We know not your season or reasons but we know you are LOVE.
Posted by Temitope Akinyemi on February 7, 2020
Babajide! Why oh why! The pain is too much but then we believe God loves you more.

Today being my birthday you would have called me and said Iyawo bawoni happy birthday.

You were so kind and such a gentle soul, brotherin law that became a friend.

I remember when my son was terminally ill you would come around to just seat with me.

I thank God for the life you lived. We pray God keep and strengthen all you left behind.
Sun re... we miss you already

The news of your passing has left a hole in our heart, one which can never be filled. Babajide you will be greatly missed. I take solace and comfort from knowing you are no longer in pain, but flying with the angles.
If I knew the last conversation we had shortly before the news of your illness was going to be our last, I would have made it last a lot longer. Memories of our childhood together keeps flashing back.
Babajide you were not just my closest cousin, but a very good friend. You held no grudge, softly spoken, humble and kind-hearted.
I pray for God's guidance and direction, to fulfil your dream in life through your young family.
Jide I love you and will miss you greatly.

Hmmm Jide...I watched as you were laid to rest yesterday with so much pain in my heart...

Jide!!!!! Chai!!! In all honesty you didn’t deserve to go this soon.Am soooooo pained because you played your part well and trusted your beloved hospital (Rjolad) to play theirs but they failed you!!! I never imagined that things will get this bad..Never!!!!!

I remember how we met when I joined AIICO pension and later discovered that you were married to Lara my long time friend..I remember how we worked on two major projects together..I remember how I stressed you so much to deliver on the projects..I remember how you always brought your calm, composed, intelligent ideas to the projects..I remember how you always listened attentively to me anytime I needed to rant..I remember how we usually disagree and agree...I remember how you detest people arguing particularly if it was in your favour...I remember our discussions about property, death and career...I remember your daily routine with your kids (your investments)...I remember how you always talked about your weekend routine of taking Foyin to make her hair and Gideon to play football..I remember how you never liked to stress Lara when I requested you worked later than planned particularly on weekends. I remember you in your fitted suite and glasses every Monday morning seating behind me during the meeting and hitting my seat intermittently..I remember how you call me“Mrs Agbedee!!Stubborn!!”.

Jide!!!!!!!! You were gentle, soft spoken(but can be very firm), very punctual, professional, dependable, selfless, very hardworking and thoughtful..You never did things beyond your capacity..You were contented with what you had..You loved Lara and the kids dearly and lived for them..You also never joked with your grand mother and dad particularly..

Jide oooo!!!! I have known you for barely 20 months and it seems like forever..Never did I imagine that I will be writing about you in your absence...Am forever grateful to God for making our paths cross and to you for choosing to be my true friend (though for a short while but it was impactful)..

I trust God that He will not leave nor forsake Lara and your kids.. He will stand by them and meet them at the point of their need..He will also comfort and strengthen your parents,siblings,grand parents and extended family..

Sleep on my dearly beloved Jide till we meet to part no more...


Posted by Gabriel O on February 14, 2020
I have known Jide from childhood days, as I lived close to his grandparents. Jide was very gentle and calm. Even as we grew older, had our families and rarely saw each other as frequently as before, he always ensured to keep in touch by sending messages on birthday and anniversary celebrations. His passing on is very painful, but I take solace in the fact that he was a Christian and believe he is resting in the bosom of our heavenly Father. I pray that God comforts and strengthens his immediate family and loved ones
his Life

The life of Babajide Olowolagba in brief

He was a father, son, brother, grandson, colleague, true friend among others. He was married to his beautiful wife Omolara in a marriage that produced 2 wonderful children.

He was a graduate of Accounting from University of Lagos Akoka in 2005 after his primary and secondary school education in Philomena Nursery and Primary School Yaba and C.M.S Grammer School Bariga both in Lagos.

He was an Oracle 9i Database Administrator before his death.

Till He passed on, He was a staff of AIICO Pension Managers Limited which he joined in 2012 and rose to become the Team Lead, Contributions and Collections Department after short stints in Pan African Capital Plc between 2007 and 2012.

He was an Associate Member of the Institute of Capital Market Registrars.

In the church where he worshipped, he was well respected due to his involvement in the church activities. He was a Sunday school teacher, he was close to the children and he took education of less privileged members very seriously as he gave scholarships to kids and today, with his support, there are University graduates and of note is one that graduated with First Class from UNILAG. He also devoted his time to support widows and the elderly members of the church. 

He is a very thoughtful brother, father and husband. He never joked with his family members' well-being. It is not surprising that he was the "go-to-guy" for everyone around him. 

We will surely miss him but we are consoled with the fact that He has truly gone to be with the Lord.

I will definitely agree with my cousin Funmi that you were a gentle and kind soul and always embracing.
