It is with deepest sorrow and sadness that we write this tribute to you. You were humble, kind, loving, caring and good at heart and soul.!!! You were kind and very warm to everyone around showed love to people when they least expected and even to those who didn't think they deserved it.

You were a great father figure and a role model to us all. We will really miss you and your honest fatherly advice. Your death came as a rude shock and wish we had more time to continue to appreciate you. God in His infinite wisdom knows best.

May Our Lord comfort and sustain your family, your wife and children now and always. May God Almighty keep you safe resting in perfect peace till resurrection day, Amen. ADIEU OUR LOVING UNCLE!!!

Meshach, Melvin and Paula Philemon

You are definitely an unforgettable hero of the story of my life, you stood in the gap for me, gave me the courage when I thought I couldn't proceed, with your tired less effort you make sure I wasn't left behind, you were such a pillar that I always confidently lean on. My greatest regrets is that you weren't opportune to enjoy the fruit of your Labour. Rest in peace sir as your memories lives on.

Uncle, I still can't believe I am writing a tribute because of your passing. Words cannot describe this difficult moment, but if this is the last time I get to say goodbye then I know I will do so with the knowledge that I consider myself blessed to have lived this life as your nephew.
May your soul continue to rest in peace Daddy ❤️
