KD,THE MEMORY LINGERS ON
The first thought on my mind
The first thing that comes to mind
The first words on my lips
Every Thursday as I wake up
Is God remember my friend KD
These years as I have known you
And our friendship had blossomed Is that you're a remarkable man
Known for your nobility
And gentlemanly in character
And as we lay you down to rest
A friend have I lost in this world Not of eternity but now
When Thursday comes
I will forever remember you
With the joy of forever been Part of each other's lives
Not forgetting the devotions
Of Streams in the Desert
You daily send to my whatsapp
One day we will meet
At the Masters feet
For I know He's welcomed you to eternity
To give you a well deserved Crown
But for us here IS

YOUR MEMORY LINGERS ON

KD, This is a very painful piece for me to write.
You were a true brother in every respect, I will never forget our school days together at RPI in Troy, NY, you were the only one at my graduate school graduation.
Doris and I and Ann Bell from Troy NY were the only ones from out-of-town who attended your graduation in Hampton, Virginia.
I miss the many months you spent together with Doris, the children and I in Baltimore, MD, The Kids who are now adults still talk about Uncle Kojo because of your very special relationship and kindness to them. I remember, our visit to see you in Detroit. I am especially and exceptionally proud of you for the special part you played as a Project Manager in making the World Cup in Detroit, Michigan a big success, You rocked! I remember our being together in Chicago.
KD, you were the only one who did the scripture reading at our wedding in Baltimore, Maryland about 3 decades ago. Through you, your brother Kofi is my brother and also a fellow Presecan as well.
It's unfortunate we have not seen each other lately, but we still thought about each like brothers do.
KD, you will forever be in our thoughts, stay well with the Lord till we all meet again.

My dear brother, I still can’t believe you are no longer with us. Continue to Rest In Peace. You will definitely be missed.
Posted by Beattie Dom on July 30, 2020
Uncle KD, you’ve gone so soon and only the Almighty God knows best! You’ll forever be missed and I believe strongly you’re resting well.
You come right after my dad and I remember how both of you were close. Your kindness and humility was your hallmark whiles on earth and I’m yet to meet anyone who will say otherwise about you.
It’s a heavy heart writing this tribute because knowing that you and uncle Spio buried my dad when he passed away in USA saddens my heart. I was 5 years old when this happened but I can recall vividly when my mum informed me about it.
My wish was for you to live long enough to see your great grand children for them to experience your tenderness. Grandma Abigail will surely miss you greatly and I’ll continue to pray that God comforts her and make her strong.
My last conversation with you was when you called on my birthday wishing me well. We were supposed to meet and catch up but due to my busy schedule it didn’t materialize.
I know you’re resting well in heaven with grandpa K. Dom and my dad Paa Twum. Until we meet again, I say Da Yie!!!

Ama, It is so evident how greatly loved your family is!  I have been praying for all of you since I heard your brothers was ill. I am sorry and I love you so much! Grief is the price we pay for loving, and loving makes life worth living. May you all be blessed by the love and support of our Heavenly Father and His many angels surrounding you. Much love!

Bro KD,

You were the most gentle, kind, responsible and respectful senior brother. Very soft spoken, but firm and resolute.
You were a man of integrity.
I will forever miss you.
Rest in perfect peace Bro KD.

Kojo,

Our paths crossed at a TV station where we were both guests. We became friends instantly and our friendship only grew until you became the senior brother I never had.

You will often call and check on me if you have not heard from me in a few days. We shared many ideas and worked on projects together. For you it did not matter whose idea it was. We were equal stakeholders and you will put in every effort possible.

You will always welcome me to your office where we discussed our plans over lunch. I will never forget your gentleness, generosity and selflessness. I write with tears running down my cheeks. I am so saddened and broken by your sudden departure Kojo. 

In these moments of sorrow I can only take consolation in the fact that you have gone to a better place. A place where there is no sorrow, pain or sickness. A place of absolute peace and tranquility.

You have fought a good fight. You have finished the race. You have thought us what it means to live by principles.

Rest in perfect peace, my friend, my brother and my mentor.

The ways of Providence are inscrutable!
A life at its prime!
Gone too soon!
We are left bereft of a loved one and a good friend!
May the Almighty grant family and friends the fortitude to overcome this moment of pain and profound grief.
Rest in Peace, KD.

Words can not express how I feel about your death. Cousin Kojo Dom, I had hope in the Lord you were going to recover from this ailment to join us but little did I know, you have finished your race on earth and you are going for your crown of righteousness. May the Lord continue to keep you in His bosom till we meet again. Though you are not with us physically, your presence would forever be felt in the family.

Fare thee well Good Soldier. The Lord grant you perfect rest from your labours.

KD was what your friends at Mfantsipim usually called you. I remember a few times when new students on premises confused the two of us. It was ethics and morality that first drew us to one another. Subsequently after school it was Christianity. We know that because you knew Christ and he knew you, your permanent residence is heaven. I am confident that by God's grace we shall soon meet there. Till we meet rest in peace. A rest that you fully deserve, IJN.

Rest In Peace KD
May the good works you left behind continue to touch us in all in marvelous ways

It has been only a few weeks without you but it feels like years. I miss you! I know you are at a better place. However, I can’t get over your exit. We had soo many plans but it wasn’t meant to be. You encouraged me to fulfill my dreams. Thank you! I always think you are in a deep sleep and will wake up soon to make me happy but Mummy says you are now with God forever. You are, and will always be, my best friend. Uncle K.D.,
Rest In Peace.

My uncle, whose remains lie here, bought me my first doll “Baby Annabelle”. I still have it and will cherish it forever.
You were so kind and caring, Uncle K.D. You always called to check up on us constantly. The last time, you planned to take us out but it never happened due to your ill health and eventual passing away.
You encouraged me to learn hard and pass my entrance exams to go to The Morning Star Senior High School (MOSHIGH) . It was your favorite and one of the best schools in Ghana, you said. Guess what, uncle K.D? I made it! Thank you soo much for encouraging me. I sure would make you very proud.
I think of you everyday and I ask myself why you had to leave so early?
The good Lord knows best. I cherish the moments I had with you and will hold them in my heart forever.
I love and miss you dearly. Uncle K.D., Rest In Peace, till we meet again.
     Maame Yacoba Dom.

Mr. Dom, as I affectionately called you. My friend, counsellor and above all father figure.

Your cool, calm and collected nature quickly made us get along very well. Ohh our backseat spot at Calvary every Sunday where we catch up and talk about any and everything. I miss those treasured moments.

Your love for God was exemplary, very evident in the passion with which you sung the hymns.

As a young man navigating through life your advice was always apt and it has helped in some choices and decisions I have made. Thank you for that.

Your love for your school; Mfantsipim, and the stories you shared with me during your time there still plays in my mind.

Your mother Aunty Abigail, was your world. You cared and loved her. Chauffeuring her to church on Sunday’s was your delight and I will say a divine obligation. This act of yours was worth emulating.

I will miss you dearly Mr. Dom. You died a day shy to my birthday. During the highlights of my birthday on the 25th when I checked on WhatsApp to see your picture on one of my contacts status on the news of your demise, the vigour and excitement on my birthday dwindled.

I was really gutted.

My condolence to Mrs. Abigail Dom, a matriarch par excellence, I pray for good health and long life for her. Also to your siblings and your dear family.

God bless your soul Mr. Dom, rest in peace till we meet again at the beautiful shore.

Much love: Nana Kwesi

I believe in his fleeting life, Kojo Dom, by his selfless deeds hanged his name like a tablet on peoples’ hearts and his virtuous legacy of kindness will forever be notched on the minds of those he encountered in life including mine. Forever gone, forever present, for always!

Tribute from Alex Wiafe

BIOGRAPHY

Kojo Dom Jr, popularly known as KD, was born on Monday March 27, 1961 at Cape Coast, to his parents the late Kojo and Abigail Dom. His father, the original K. Dom, a young budding industrialist, businessman and a teacher from Ajumako Mando had moved from Sekondi-Takoradi to Cape Coast, to expand his rubber stamp and handicraft business. His mother, a beautiful, dainty local teacher had met and married the previous year. 
Growing up, KD was always surrounded by a large circle of family and friends who doted constantly on him, being the firstborn child of his father to join him with his mother who was studying there. Whilst there, Mrs. Rosalie Acquaah who lived in England with her family mother. At the very young age of 6 months he was taken to England by 
He was taken back to London when he grew older. He stayed with the Akyianu family and attended school with their daughter Josephine who was around his age. KD formed many friendships and lifelong bonds. 
In 1966, he was enrolled together with a small group of boys and girls, namely Samuel Boison, Hans Djaba, Esther Lamptey, Elsie Ofori, Steve Sawyer, Sam Brandful, Gertrude Obeng, Mabena Siriboe and others who formed the early intake of the Morning Star School in Accra. KD was always one of the brightest in his class and indeed passed his Common Entrance scoring over 300. As a young boy, his major interests were in art and crafts, reading, writing, debating and Sunday School. It was no surprise that he was chosen as one of the pioneers of the Boys' Brigade of Calvary Methodist Church in 1969 along with Fabin, Thompson, Dontoh, Kitcher, Ghartey, and others. KD was admitted at Mfantsipim School, Cape Coast in 1973 where he spent the next seven years of his life. He was kind, helpful, studious, religious, respectful, and endeared himself to many fellow students and staff. In Form 1 he joined the school choir, Scripture Union, and other clubs on campus. He became the Prefect of his house Pickard Parker. During his time in Mfantsipim, KD developed lifelong friendships with boys such as Sam Appenteng, Steve Ocloo, took care of KD. That forged a lifelong bond until his passing. 
He was brought back to Ghana and was taken care of by his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Matilda Ghansah and Aunt Nancy Ampah in Cape Coast. His mother recalls a story upon her return when KD would show her picture and tell her, "this is my mother. She is abroad and will be corning back." Subsequently, the family moved permanently to Accra and he was enrolled at Mrs. Bannerman's Daycare on Castle Road, Adabraka after a brief stint at the University Primary School, Legon. Kwesi Acquaah, Alex Wiafe, Graham Mensa-Wilmot, Philip Addison, Alex Quaynor, Dotse Tsikata, the Ghartey Tagoe's and countless others. KD appeared an introvert on the outside but was very friendly once you got to know him. When he really liked someone, he invited them home to meet his parents and siblings.
Literally, scores of friends became family and continued to keep in touch from far and near regularly until his last days. KD was also a member of the Calvary Youth Association and participated intensely in their activities during vacation time.  Also, on vacations and in his free time, KD helped his mother at her shop, The Gift Box and at K. Dom Limited with his siblings and other students and friends, among them Ghartey-Tagoe, Joe Abekah, Mike Taylor and Jackson-Kuofie. Before attending the University of Science & Technology to read Architecture in 1980, KD did a stint with the National Service, stationed at Akim Oda, evacuating cocoa with the likes of Kofi Kutsuati, Kojo Gyamera, Isaac Baidoo and others. His education lasted only two years at Tech as it was closed by the then military government. At UST, he made many friends among whom are Dr. Kofi Berko, Godson Amamoo, Prof. Yaw Adu-Sarkodee (who named his daughter after KD's mother Abigail) and numerous others. 
Subsequently, in 1985, he left Ghana for the United States to continue his studies in Architecture. First at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY where he was "adopted" by the Bell family. He then transferred to Hampton University in Virginia where he graduated Magna cum Laude (Highest Honors) in Construction Engineering and Management. His roommate there was Rudy Baffour. 
Before his Graduation, KD was well sought after by big corporations and was offered several jobs all over the USA but settled for a Project Management position with top construction firm, Walbridge-Aldinger in Detroit, Michigan. He moved to that city, spending the next twenty-three years of his life there. During his time there he endeared himself to his work colleagues, many friends, and acquaintances. From his achievements at work, he got to meet and dine with a couple of Michigan's top business people including the then CEOs of Chrysler Corporation, Penske, two mayors of the city and other VIPs. 
Even more important was his service to God which started in his early youth and continued throughout his stay in the USA, first as a student youth volunteer with Gideons International, local soup kitchens, homeless support groups as well as fiercely promoting and supporting an adult literacy program and building a library. He was a member of the Metro Detroit United Methodist church where he later trained and served as a lay preacher, and for almost his entire membership was on the church Board as well as a greeter and usher. He also became the Logistics Manager of the 1994 FIFA World Cup (Pontiac venue), 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, formed his own contracting firm (Dom Consulting) specializing in church renovations and other civil works and at the height of his career became the first black president in the  100 year history of the Rotary Club of Detroit. KD was very supportive of family and friends and traveled all over the United States to support them during graduations,christenings, weddings, and funerals. He returned to Ghana in 2012 after a 27-year sojourn in the United States with plans of contributing to the development of Ghana in the areas of real estate and tourism. He was acting Manager of K. Dom Limited from 2018 until his passing. 
He was a generally quiet and reserved person but friendly when the ice was broken. KD will be remembered for his kindness, selflessness, thoughtfulness, closeness with his dear mother and family and most importantly his strict adherence to his principles and what he strongly believed in.  He was always ready to be of help to anyone he met, whether he had the resources to do so or not. KD was known especially to the youth for his counseling services. He also took the time to call and visit the older generation of family friends. 
He was an amazing uncle who dearly loved his nephews, nieces and adopted daughter and kept up to date with all their activities and encouraged them to be the best they could be. He was always in touch with and constantly checked on them. Many will miss him for feeding them with daily inspirational quotes and devotionals. He was also keen on supporting The Orphan-Care Foundation Ghana (TOCF, Ghana), a non-profit organization set up by his youngest brother to help cater for abandoned children and orphans, and served as advisor to the Mando SHS, a mentor and business advisor to the African Aurora Business Network and others. He was also instrumental in providing books and various equipment in support of Rotary Club projects both in Ghana and the US. He enjoyed music and occasionally would meet up with friends at the Eclipse Club or at + 233 Jazz Club. He also enjoyed visits to Accra Mall, spots at Osu and many restaurants and eateries around Accra. He was a keen reader, his favorite author being Norman Vincent Peale, and of course the Bible which he had read from Genesis to Revelations at least twice before his A-levels. 
He will be sorely missed by his mother, siblings, adopted daughter, nephews, and nieces and an uncountable number of extended family and friends. 
May his gentle soul find eternal rest with the Lord whom he loved and served.

You were the perfect gentleman, KD, a brother and a friend.  I had hoped you would be here to see ‘Albert’s Haven’ take off, but that was not to be.  Ato and I still can’t believe our last rendezvous was with you on the farm.
God knows best, and called you home to rest.
Rest, rest, rest my dear friend till we meet again in glory.

Rest well my good friend and brother.

It was one of those Sundays at ICGC Calvary Temple Sakumono, reeling from the responsibility of standing in for our head pastor in his absence. I had just finished my sermon for that Sunday and climbed up to take my seat. Still wondering if the word I gave had gone down with the congregation. Service was over and getting up to leave  Kojo shows up with his usual calm and pleasant smile to congratulate me, expressing a little wonderment that I preach as well. He knew me as a small enterprises consultant. He calmed my uncertain frame of mind. Kojo, you will be sorely missed.

Life well lived
