What can I say about my Dad?

Shared by Funke Ogundare on 10/15/2017

A man of God, retiring from Nigerian Army chaplaincy and retiring from the Methodist church, he still kept preaching and teaching and writing devotionals till his last year on earth.

A family man a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle with impacts in every area.

A man of many talents and all done well, a physiotherapist, a soldier, a pastor, a preacher, a business man, a builder.

An action Man till his last day on earth, he was still working and getting stuff done.

A determined forthright Man, who says what he means and means what he says.

A man always willing to learn new things, he was the first person to challenge me by doing a Master's degree late in life.

A man that fights and does not give up, he was never afraid to tell it as it is, even if it meant being arrested.

A man that set examples by his life and his conduct, no one that was in contact with him does not have a story to tell.

Yes he was very strict, in the early days there was no type of rod that was spared in the effort of not spoiling the child, in the later days it was yelling and punishment but deep within, you knew it was because he truly cared and deeply loved always striving for perfection.  He expected perfection in himself and in everyone around him.

There are people that come through the earth, they live and die their only impact is their family that was not my dad.  His impact his was felt everywhere he was.

Dad, you will be greatly missed!

We can’t wait to read the stories of how his life has touched yours.

I remember my daily phone calls with you on my way to work, how you kept me company literally everyday as I sat in traffic. I guess all those talks are part of the strength for today. I do miss you, but I'm sure you are much better off. Say Hi to Mum, till we meet at His feet.

You’re remembered today and always.....I miss you dearly.

I have put off writing this tribute, not because I do not know what to say or that I do not wish to say it; the pain and deep sense of loss has so far, restrained me. I cannot begin to express my deep sense of loss and bewilderment at your loss so soon, Dad. Growing up watching you, you demonstrated your love as an affectionate father; you modelled to me what a true father should look like. Your dedication and commitment to the family was beyond question. You laboured in time of want and in time of plenty to ensure we all had the best we could afford. Your heart and motives were genuine and pure, though sometimes your ways were unrefined. As I watched your dedication to your wife, my mother, I am determined more than ever to ensure the legacy of good marriage is passed to the next generation. I still vividly remember your 50th wedding anniversary like it was yesterday. I am very proud to call you Daddy! Your dedication to family certainly gives us all a standard to work towards and surpass if we can! Your hard work and selflessness was without question. I watched you through the years demonstrate integrity, forthrightness and an unquestionable dedication to service. As a young man, I watched you stand up for what you believed, even if it meant imprisonment; You stayed the course. Your values and principles were never in doubt, you were never afraid to speak the truth even to your hurt. As a minster you preached the Truth, you were not one to cater to itchy ears. Beyond preaching the Truth, you lived it as much as it laid in your power. You were not a hypocrite; you practiced what you preached. Lots of people look up to celebrity as heroes, but dad you are my Hero. No one can match these admirable, brilliant and remarkable qualities in my eyes. Over the years, we have become friends, rubbing minds over issues, seeking your opinion over matters and you often sought my perspective on issues that were thorny for you. I started to get some glimpses of the working of your mind and an understanding of what makes you tick! You are a deeply insightful man; my world, no, the world will not be the same without you. You touched everyone around you with your insight, affection and wisdom. Our friendship blossomed even more over the last few years as we discussed various issues and got a lot closer. Your visits are always so welcome: Oh how I will miss those quiet times we spend together just walking or sitting at the beach! You model what true godliness is to me; your dedication to the Lord is without question. You spent and were spent for his service. Your life reflected your message, you spared nothing in His service, till your last day you served Jesus. You dedicated your abilities, talents and resources to his service, you had a heart for souls, you modelled your life to fit the His word. You made me understand that godliness with contentment is great gain. Your faith in His ability has impacted by understanding, dependence and dedication to Jesus. Dad you have run your race, you have finished your fight, now a there is in store for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to you on that day. Well done Dad, you ran well! As I bid you farewell, the lessons I have learnt from you, your principles, lifestyle and you Godliness will never depart from me. I am certain that one day I will see you again, in the bosom of our Lord. Good bye my Daddy, my Hero, my Friend, my Mentor, good bye. Shola Keripe.

A tribute to the Late Very Revd Col Matthew Oluwapamilerin Keripe By Pa Samuel Owonike Ogundare There goes a man to where all men go, Shakespare - I came I saw I conquered, Yes Baba Keripe came and saw and conquered. A man of adamant courage. When we were told on Tuesday October 10, 2017 that you had passed on to eternity, we could not believe my ears and had to run to your house waiting to hear 'Kabo Ana mi' but only to be told your body has been removed to the mortuary. How are the mighty fallen! The Bible says, 'Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon lest the daughters of the uncircumcised rejoice...' The Very Revd M O Keripe is gone never to be met on this planet earth. A soldier per excellence. A man who would speak plainly his mind on any issue at all times, he made me remember a sage in this country ' I would have my say and you will have your way'. When Baba Keripe disagrees with you he would let you know instantly. You are given an immediate opportunity to defend yourself and explain, should you have a superior or better argument for your action, a complete soldier man ready to let go. Baba Keripe was always happy seeing people around him happy. He wants subordinates around him buying plots of land around him, always ready to assist people forge ahead in life. Integrity, discipline, self control and fear of God and not man is the Hallmark of Baba Keripe's life. He had a youthful spirit always happy to be with the young ones and the young at heart. Rest Well my friend, till we meet to part no more

On behalf of Ben Taiwo Oremade Oluwapamilerin, you have alighted at your bus stop! Our relationship really got started when he enlisted in the Military and when I was serving in the NC Excise, now NCS. We were able to blend because of his natural discipline, forth rightness and dedication. He never permitted lousiness or laziness which endeared him to quality relationship in the Military. He saw and said things the way they were. His reputation was never in doubt. Go well and rest well in the bosom of the Almighty God. You served so well. The Oremade family bids you farewell

The demise of Revd. Col. Olu Keripe (Rtd),Daddy,as he's fondly called was a great lost for some of us that sees him as a loving father and role model. It is with a profound sense of loss yet gratitude to God whose will in our lives we cannot question that I appreciate a life well spent by our daddy. We greatly valued his counsel ,intervention and we never ceased to be amazed by his concern for the well-being of our family and his emphasis on love and unity . Daddy was an avowed and highly respected personality ,a bridge builder , fearless man, exceptionally courageous accomplished clergy. Daddy happened to be a disciplinarian with loving and caring heart,accommodating; no matter your background,you will definitely have something to learn from him. An epitome of love,forgiveness and unity;he has a special way of preaching love and togetherness. A fearless man;prompt you to stand for your right. A manager of scarce resources;with little available he gets the best result. No doubt daddy was a great achiever,having retired as a military officer, he excelled as a Presbyter at the Methodist Church of Trinity,Tinubu. The values and virtue of daddy would remain. We love you but God love you most. This is a time to celebrate this great man of God. May He find eternal rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ,whom he served with all of his strength. David & Temitope Oriade

Posted by Keripe Deborah on 2nd November 2017
Dear daddy, I can recall how you used to call me very early in the morning just to pray and to encouraged me. You were really a father not a father-in-law, strict, tough, but with a caring heart. Surely I will miss you, but I have a consolation that you are resting with the Lord. Rest on daddy, and may God be with all your children you left behind. Your daughter-in-law.

on behalf of Mrs.Elizabeth O. Osilesi i met him when he visited us at the Diocesan Council meeting of Remo Diocese. he humbled himself on his knees in his Army Uniform to pray along with us to see God's face on behalf of our member Col (RTD) Emma Soda who was then detained with his then boss Gen. Diya by Abacha. As the Chaplain in charge in the Army, he refused to perform the final rites on his member and others who were innocent of the offenses they were charged for. He prayed with tears running down his face and to the glory of God our prayers were answered as they were all released. A faithful God we serve! The Very rev Col (RTD) , Prince Keripe, a gallant Soldier, and man of God may your soul rest in perfect peace.

Daddy Keripe, When Funke texted me to tell me that “Daddy has gone home”, I was shocked and saddened by your departure. I met you only once but I remember you as a cheerful, jovial man. Your legacy lives on in your children. You have influenced many lives and I salute you for your influence, ministry, and godly life. I rejoice with you over your entrance into our Lord’s presence yet I grieve with all those you left behind. Rest In Peace, Daddy & say hi to my own daddy up there. I’m sure both of you will have a lot to discuss.

PROUD TO RECOGNIZE YOUR FAITHFUL SERVICE AS OUR PASTOR A man who taught the word of God, the word of truth that gives the people power; the power of love....the love of God! A man who not only hugs the sheep, but touches the heart of his flock. The sheep knew his voice and were blessed by his presence. A man who taught the medicinal benefits of laughter, and the financial benefits of giving. A man whose singing brought light into dark places, and pierced the heart into conviction. A man whose smile actually means "I love you", A man whose eyes said "I'm praying for you" A man whose lessons from the pulpit made one jump up and say I can take on the world, bring it on! A man who everyone heard of, most people knew, who many people wanted, but we had him! Because he chose to stay our shepherd... A man we appreciate and love, and who we are proud to call" Our Pastor!

Daddy, you are an inspiration to me. Your fatherly attributes are so beautiful. I remember one time you visited Funke & Yinka, you made it a duty to see all your children. You shared many words of wisdom with me. I enjoyed working with you on Funke’s project. Akin, my children and I have many memories of how you lived, loved the Lord and the people around you. I looked on my phone & realized I cannot talk with you anymore. I will miss you daddy. Sleep Well.

Grand-Pa as I fondly called you...... You were such a loving being, when uncle Yinka called me around 5am ish on Tuesday morning I was wondering why he was calling me that early and he said Lola please go to the house to Funke, daddy Keripe ti ku. I first thought what was he talking about, I spoke with grand pa recently and his voice was very active, we talked for some minutes, you prayed concerning my upcoming wedding and you said "alafia la wa ni bi". But Jesus called you to his side in Heaven. A place of God's great beauty. I will continue to treasure the special memories of knowing you. May your soul continue to rest in peace...........

"On behalf of Bishop Sunday Ogunlere Methodist Church Nigeria Diocese of Lagos West". As promised me when you were retiring from active ministry in Tinubu, you told me you were going to take care of the smaller Churches in Igando area. You used your last days in mentoring, sponsoring, and guiding them to grow and expand. You excellently served the Lord in your last moments. We worshiped together in Idimu on Sunday, discussed the completion of their new hall. All for you to go away gently to your creator on Tuesday. You came, you saw, and you conquered. Glory be to God almighty. Adieu Papa! Rest in perfect peace.

The few times i spent with granpa in his country home was always funfilled, educative and highly motivating. He was a rare gem and a father to many although a strict disciplinarian. The last time i saw you, you never told me i wont see you anymore. I always look forward to visiting you whenever am in Lagos. The news of your death came as a great shock cos i never expected it now but i cant question God. I was already looking forward to bringing my baby to visit you but its no more possible. You have left an everlasting impression in my life and dat of my husband. We would live to forever remember you. Love you like kilode. Adieu Granpa, Ije oma.

On behalf of Demola and Yemisi Idowu We became close to Papa's family in 1979. We were living in the same neighbourhood off Adeoyo Hospital, Ring Road, Ibadan. Papa baptised our first daughter Bukky in 1979 at Oke Ado Methodist Church Ibadan, Nigeria. But the strongest link we had with Papa's family is Maggy (Funke). She became to us our adopted first daughter in whom we are well pleased. Papa was very humble, forthright and unassumingly quiet. He was very proud of his Ijebu-Remo heritage which was one of the reasons, I guess, why he took to us on getting to know our pedigree. He was a reverend gentleman but more interestingly a "gentleman" soldier and committed family man. We pray that the good Lord will grant him eternal rest. Adieu Papa. Demola and Yemisi Idowu

I captured the depth of godliness, humility and love that 'granpa' had in just the few times of my adult age I spent with him. He never let go of the strictness and toughness he was made of. I felt this many times. With him, there were no shortcuts. You either do it right or never do it. I'll miss him. He was always there regardless of the situation and time. He'll never let anyone embarrass or harass his own. He was a big pillar in the extended family and in deed, he'll be missed! I can't believe this happened. I still had plans of a surprise visit for December and now... He was a true and real soldier, served our great nation well yet a great father and grandfather that cared for his own. How he played these roles perfectly, God's gift. I will miss you...and in my heart you'll live on.

TRIBUTE TO A GREAT LEADER, FATHER AND MENTOR - COLONEL VERY REV MATTHEW OLUWAPAMILERIN KERIPE (RTD) FORMER DIRECTOR NIGERIAN ARMY CHAPLAIN PROTESTANT The news of your death came to many of us your admirers as a rude shock. That points to the fact that "life is a beautiful lie while death is a painful truth". God brought you into this world, you contributed in your best way as a priest and a soldier to the Chaplaincy (Prot), Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Nation. Your transparent leadership style, mentoring spirit and great sermons put into practicality "Live as you say", which made you so unique among equals. Many of us mentored will definitely miss you, though promising to continue with your legacies. Officers, soldiers, families and the entire Protestant faithfuls will ever remain grateful to God for giving you to us and to you for introducing the Daily spiritual strength (DSS) which is building our spiritual standards every moment. The "ALAGBA AND POWERFUL" as you were fondly known, REST IN PERFECT PEACE . ADIEU BABA! Brig Gen (Rev) DD Danfulani Director Champlain Service Protestant Nigerian Army

You’re great! You’re Awesome. You’re Magnificent. One of a kind Boss, Mentor and spiritual father. He was not only my Boss, or Spiritual father, he was also a friend and a mentor. He accepted me and helped me despite of who I was and what I am. His ears were always open and ready to listen and to give advice. He helped me a lot to become what I am now. I am blessed and thank God for having worked with him. He was wonderful and marvellous servant of God. I appreciate him every single day because of his goodness and love to me. God knew his heart and He knows how much I appreciate him for being part of my life. I love my boss having been his orderly until his retirement from service as a soldier; he was truly a blessing in my life. He was always there for me to encourage, to love and support. Adieu Alagba!

I think there is a Chinese whisper going on with our parents calling each other with the good news that existence is better at the other side. It was with sadness that I saw Kayode's post that Pa Keripe is no more with us. A towering man who was ever present in my formative years as we travel to theirs over for Christmas or Easter's meals. You were one of the few Nigerian Fathers' that I will listen to or admire from afar with the way you carried and conducted yourself. I was privileged to listened to you on numerous occasions as you spoke and taught from the Bible. We had our differences but I respected your tenacity and orderliness, Thank you for the fond memories...looking at your pictures brought back so much vivid memories of my youthful life. Adieu Uncle and your demise makes the word Carpe Diem poignant To the Keripes, our sincere sympathy and condolences from the Fadojus. Our thoughts are with you.

From the first time you called me your most beautiful grandee, to the last, you have always been there to support my dreams, my aspirations and the person that I would like to be. You were always there to guide each of us on our paths in life, with wisdom and the truth of the Word. I will miss you dearly, but I will see you again someday.

I'm still waiting for someone to pinch me so I wake from this from dream, I almost cannot believe it. Grandpa, You are a man of wisdom, humble to the core, a disciplinarian, a lover of people, understanding, devoted and not shy about calling people out when it is needed. You are going to be missed! If I can rest in anything, it is the fact that God knows all and that He loves us so much and His plan for our lives is much bigger than we can imagine and you going to be with Him in heaven, only fulfills that awesome plan. I love you dearly but I know God loves you even more! See you up there. From your most beautiful granddaughter!
