Go well Uncle. I know my Dad Simon Tar will be at that gate waiting to welcome you. You lived a good life Uncle. 25 years after the accident that every one thought would take your life, you lived and thrived. Your disciplined personality afforded everyone who crossed paths with you, the ability to explore the best they could be.
There shall be no more pain Uncle, you started to see your parents towards the end, which was not only proof that they were ready to welcome you into the heavenly kingdom, it was also proof that you were ready to go. We grieve but we are also thankful for the time that God allowed us to enjoy your presence.
Rest on Uncle and sleep in peace. You will forever live in our hearts.

Tribute to Shey Aloys WanManjo (Friend and father)

With sadness and regret, I read the news of your departure on social media. Regret, because circumstances did not permit me to visit and bid you farewell.

First, I thank your ever loving and caring wife and children, for taking excellent care of you till your last moment, and for giving us this space to air a word in your honour.

I could feel the radiation of your gentle and charming smile as I pen these lines. You were commonly known and acclaimed for high principles, discipline and rigour. Who dared stood before you with doubtful facts? Who dared appeared before your presence on false witness? Even on your wheel chair and in pain, you did not blink!

We became friends due to an assignment given by the Bishop of Kumbo in the early years of 2000; though already on your wheel chair; to investigate and reconcile the parties in a protracted dispute over a piece of land belonging to a Catholic School. The facts of your testimony, opinion and counsel brought the matter to a just and fair end. You earned my deep respect! You became my adviser and role model!

I must also thank you for your kindness and generosity, as expressed towards my late aunt-Madam Jaff Cecilia, whom you so dutifully and religiously ferried along, in your car, to the Cathedral for Mass. By so doing, you trained Gerald Manjo, your son, who was your driver and chaperone to Madam Jaff and yourself, on the values of compassion for the elderly and the sick. May the most merciful and generous God, whom you served, grant you eternal rest. Requiscat in pace! Adieu!

Dr. Berinyuy V. Marius (Ph.D.)

Daddy,

Daddy, like I always called you. I never knew that this day could come this soon but you have fought a good fight. I also know that you are in a better place sitting right beside the almighty God.

If there is anything I learned from you, it is to love all children unconditionally regardless of who birth them. Thank you.

Daddy, I pray may almighty God rest your soul in peace. May your soul continue to live on.

I love you Daddy but, God loves you more.

Adieu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Papa, I know you're are now singing and dancing with the Angels in the heavenly choir.Your exit from this world has been the saddest thing to ever happen in my life and a very, very bitter pill to swallow. Despite the fact that you went through a lot for the passed 25 years, it's still very hard to believe that you're no more.What a never seen fighter you've been for all these years.Your determination and resilience was second to none.You never wanted to give up but that day came,January 29, 2021,when the Almighty said,my son your time on earth has expired,come and rejoice with me in heaven and pulled the plug and you were gone.Despite your condition, this exit came as a bombshell.Your no nonsense and strict personality moulded us into what we are today.You were a great husband, dad, teacher, and mentor to us and your students as many can testify.You were a straight forward and truthful man and hated lies telling.You were against all forms of bribery and corruption.Your yes was your yes and your no your no.The way you brought us up is the same way I'm bringing up my Kids.Your legacy will live on forever.You had unconditional and overwhelming love for your wife,children and grand kids.However, you had a special spot in your heart for me for reasons you alone knew.You were not the type of dad that never cared about the welbeing and education of his children.You were ready to sponsor each of us with the mega salary you received as a primary school headmaster reach the highest rung of the academic ladder.What a great dad you were.
We will miss you enormously.You fought a good fight and i know without any reasonable doubt you're already watching over us from above.I pray for a befitting and peaceful send off as your body journeys home.
Papa, RIPP and may your memory be a blessing
A Dieu Papa

Daddy you fought a good fight. We know death is inevitable but we can’t believe you are gone because your memories still live. We know you are a warrior in God’s vine yard and resting in the Lord. You will forever remain a father, a grandfather, a husband and a father-in-law in our lives.Good bye daddy.

Go well Sheey
As we celebrate your departure to your creator, know that you shall be in our hearts forever till we meet to depart no more.

Go well Sheey!

What to say about our grandfather? We wouldn't be the people we are today without him. His departure truly breaks our hearts. From the time we were very young, he taught us so much. While we may not always have shown it, we always looked up to him. He was a leader and an incredible human being. He wouldn’t want us to mourn. A man as humble and loving as Grandpa would want us to go out and enjoy the time we all have left. He will be remembered by many. Although we will miss him, his smile, his jokes, his love, we take comfort in the good feelings of our memories. Our Grandfather was truly a force of nature and will forever be missed.

I did not get the honor of meeting Papa in person, but way back in 2008/2009 I had the distinct and ever-living pleasure of meeting Terrill in my secondary school days. Compared to the years passed, we had very little time together but it was enough to share much and I'm happy for the many little ways in which he contributed in making life easy for his entourage. Today I can only share in his pain and bid Dad farewell. Yes, "The true measure of a man is how much love he gives; how selflessly he shares whatever he can to help others; how consistently he lifts those around him with a kind word..." and I think I know a few people in whom Dad imparted that image of himself. As I pray with you for his eternal repose, I wish you health and strength in overcoming this trial; I pray for your comfort and consolation to come from the Lord and from the sweet memories of all Dad was and did, to you and for you. I also pray you may be able to keep his legacy ever in your hearts, and why not in your lives as you imitate his virtues?
May his soul rest in peace and may his memory live on. United in prayers!

DEATH OH DEATH!!

Dear Senior Brother, it is hard to believe that you are no more. This however a call from the Almighty God, a call you are bound to answer. And with your usual Smile you have heeded to.
That smile you wore with love whether in happiness or anger, hence you acted like a teacher of love, rigour and moralization in the family circle.
It's true we loved you but God loved you most hence your call to eternity.
It is unbearable and discomforting that we will miss you more so as the eldest in the family. We must admit the reality. We wish you a safe journey back home to the Master.
May you be the bearer of our compliments to the Manjos and the Sahs gone ahead.
Rest In Perfect Peace dear Brother.
You Will Ever Remain Green In Our Memory.

DEATH HOW DEEP IS YOUR STING!!!

How hard it is to bid you farewell Daddy! My heart is heavy and aches so bad. How much more pain am I yet to endure? You were such a strict, firm, time and duty conscious, frank, honest, straight forward, respectful, truthful and God fearing gentleman and now my Guardian Angel.
You were a loving and caring dad par excellence as you selflessly catered and provided for your wife and children. Not one day did I hear you raise your voice at mama nor see you both fight. The love you had for each other blessed you with 53 years in holy matrimony…I doff my hat to you daddy. I'm still baffled how you sponsored us in the best schools with a meagre salary of a teacher and farmer. Being the disciplinarian and educationist you were, I never had an easy childhood as you “gingered” me to become a better version of myself. Our education was your greatest priority as you reminded us always that hard work leads to success. You insisted I go back to school after having my baby at a teenage age (whom you loved so much and who happens to be your first grandson) because you wanted the best for me. You cried so hard when I lost my husband ( the emotional part of you that many people never knew) and thereafter, played a double role of dad and grand dad as you made sure we were OK all the times. THANK YOU DADDY!
You taught me so much so early. I knew the word ‘economical’ at a very tender age as you always cautioned with a thunderous, authoritative and commanding voice “Learn to be economical” with basic necessities like electricity, water and soap etc. I thought you were unnecessarily being hard but today, I teach my children same. You never stopped giving little bits of advise. The one that stuck in me till date was when I was going to the University and you said; “Jane, if you do not have what you like, like what you have” This helped me indeed and I'll forever be grateful daddy.
You dreaded laziness and sluggishness so much as you were always punctual for every meeting or appointment. I can recall you saying “Do you want to become old when you're still young?” while spilling away the warm water we prepared to have a bath with each time despite the ‘biting’ cold in Nso because you wanted us to always be smart and agile.
You proved your bravery to the world after the ghastly car accident on February 11 1996. You were declared dead severally but God being so kind spared your life and granted you almost 25 more years on earth thereafter. You were a true definition of a hero and your resilience baffled me sometimes. Giving up was never an option to you neither was it in your vocabulary and I'm copying that. You held your Christian values in very high esteem and if you ask me how a Sheey of your caliber managed to blend religious and cultural values in such a smooth way, I won't say. This just confirms how principled and disciplined you were. All your children and some grand children have received most of their sacraments. You could not miss mass and I can still spot your seat in church despite your health challenges neither could you compromise any of us not going to church at least on Sundays for whatever reason. Thank you for drawing us closer to God daddy. It's paying off. You loved mama Maria so dearly and never let hold of your rosary all along your illness prove you died holding firm to it. You were super happy when I became dedicated as a full flesh Catholic Women's Association member and said I chose the right path.
Daddy, I'll forever cherish our last call two days before you went into the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). You asked after and spoke to all my kids. Unusually, our call lasted for more than one hour. I even dosed off for a while and woke up to you asking me to send your wife to kumbo because you were coming to spend Christmas with her and not to forget to buy your best wine. Little did I know it was a goodbye call and you telling me to take care of your wife. Be rest assured mama is in good hands dad.
It's rather unfortunate I couldn't be there to cater for you but my able sisters, family and friends stood the gap for us back here in Cameroon and I bet you were given the utmost attention and care you deserved. Ma Eunice & Co. I thank y'all immensely from the bottom of my heart for the love, care and concern you showed my dad.
Your whole life was a mind blowing testimony and I thank God for glorifying himself in you. All I have left of you now are just memories of our one on one moments and your signature and contagious smile which I'll forever keep jealously. My regards to my paternal and maternal grand parents, aunties and uncles, friends, father-in-law and to my beloved husband. May y'all continue to rest in perfect peace, keep watch over us, intercede for us and prepare a better place for us when we shall meet to part no more.
ADIEU DADDY!
YOUR LEGACY LIVES ON!
Your most cherished fighting partner daughter.

Shey Manjo Aloysius Ngalim the serious and committed Teacher par excellence, the serious Father and Husband worth the name and a serious lover of his tradition especially the Nwerong Society. You knew how to blend culture and Christianity without cheating on your Faith / Christianity. For all the years I lived and worked in the Kumbo Cathedral Parish, I hardly missed you from the morning Mass and Benediction. I can still see your chair at the left front side before the shorter benches empty. Where are you Shey? How I wish I could see where you sit in heaven. Pray for all the people you met in life and for family. See you when we meet to part no more in God's kingdom. 

Adieu!! Shey Manjo Aloysius Ngalim.

Dear Uncle Shey Manjo,

Our good Lord has taken you physically from pain and left us with memories of love, and an immense human spirit. Thank you uncle for your fortitude, your love for family and for education. Your wit even in the midst of your illness kept us hopeful. We know you are physically in a better place now. Thank you for all you meant and did for all your children, biological and non- biological. You are now our angel watching over us. Uncle RIPP and your legacy will reign.

        Death you have done no work.

You have hovered and lingered around my uncle from the time he had an accident. For twenty years you have come close and retreated as my Uncle fought valiantly through various surgeries and near death situations. Each time you’d realize that even though my Uncle was enduring physical pain his spirit was unbreakable.

After every near death situation he was wiser, more loving and we loved him even more. I can assure you your frequent unsuccessful visits served as building materials for my Uncle’s Mansion in heaven.

Death, you do not get the final say. You were just a means to an end. An invisible means of transport for my Uncle to move into his new home.
We mourn our Uncle but it’s a win win situation for us. He touched, and positively changed the lives of thousands of students, friends, colleagues, and his community. There’s no doubt he was an excellent family man. Ask his beautiful wife, and his educated, respectful, well rounded kids. We are better off from knowing him and learning from him. We are extraordinarily blessed that he’s transcended to join to join the angels in Heaven.

So you see death, you have done no work. Enjoy your Mansion Uncle but be sure to come down and flutter around us.

Dear Shey Manjo,
News of your demise hit my being like a bullet. I had been wanting to talk to you for years but didn't have the chance to do so.When I finally got Dr Eunice's number and spoke with her, you were already fighting fighting for your life.How I wish I had the opportunity to express my gratitude to you for huge impact you had in my life!.I am thankful to you for going the extra mile. I want to tell you how your kindness, support, and interest in my character development has helped me in many difficult stages of my life.I can brag of self discipline today thanks to you.
Thank you, sir, for dedicating your time and energy in teaching for long hours and for instilling in me the spirit of self discipline and responsibility. I remember how you would drive past me on your way to GS Kiyan and still flog me for coming late. Oh yes that left hand that could flog the entire school after removing the wrist watch.That hand did many of us so much good.That taught me a big lesson about punctuality and leadership. I remember you for the never-ending lessons on General Knowledge and mathematics.
Thank you, sir, for calling us your children.
Though my words are not enough to appreciate all the hard work you have done for me I always remember you when I sincerely raise my hands for prayers and I feel so blessed and thankful to Almighty to have you as a constant source of motivation in my life.
Farewell Shey until we meet to part no more.

Tribute to my Father-in-Law

My father-in-law and I formally crossed paths in the mid-1990 when I was in my senior year at the university in Nigeria. Before then, as a young ambitous man, I informally knew you from the Nso Area Cooperative Union where you were a board member. Thereafter, we soon established an acquaintanceship that transitioned into a serious friendship.
Prior to the establishment of the said friendship, I already had strong feelings of love for your daughter who will later on become the love of my life. The love and admiration you had for your beautiful daughter was undoubtedly phenomenal and it was not easy for you to let her go. You exhibited the true character of a loving and caring father when I formerly asked for your daughter's hand in marriage, and you willingly gave me your genuine blessings. 
Your support, love and admiration for our marriage has been unquestionably appreciated. Every time we came visiting you, or you staying with us, your contiguous smile always illuminated the entire room unceasingly. You gave us abundant hope in our marriage and advised me most often about the greatness, trials and tribulations of marriage. Your grandkids became infectiously in love with you and wrote a lot about you each time they were given homework at school to write a story about grandparents. They were absolutely devastated when you passed away. They are still in pain and curiously wondering about your departure to the land of no return.
Down the years, you and I established a strong bond that was beyond father-in-law and son-in-law relationship. You entrusted in me a lot of things that a father will do to a loving son. We discussed about immediate family life, political dispensations around the globe, socio-economic issues, the oppressed people and the oppressors as well as our cultural heritage in Nsoland as we know it. You confided in me about a lot of teething issues and relentlessly bestowed in me the confidence of running a successful household. When my father passed away, you became a father figure to me. You treated me with respect and dignity. You often told me how proud you were of my endless love for your daughter. You were a favorite admirer and supporter of our marriage. You were indeed a trust worthy and reliable friend.
As a principled man, you defended societal norms and values without fear or favor. You believed in the protection of the fundamental human rights of citizens all over the world, including vulnerable people in the land of our ancestors. You believed that self-determination was the credible path towards the political emancipation of subjugated minorities by totalitarian governments. During your dying days, you still had hope for the protection of the freedoms of the underprivileged peoples’ globally. 
As faith will have it, I was privileged to watch you via a WhatsApp live video link as you took your last breath lying calmly but exhausted on your hospital bed. These memories are unpleasant and unwanted because they bring sorrow. I will always reflect on this faithful day and the events that preceded it with deep sorrow and melancholy.
My wife, your daughter, our two children and I, know you can no longer be with us. You fought long and hard to be with us but God took you to your everlasting home. It is so sad to know that you are no more with us on earth, but your great memories and love will be our guide. Although we cannot see your contagious smile and hear your commanding voice, we know you are now resting in a better place with our Heavenly Father.
Farewell Sheey WanManjo Aloysius Ngalim.
With Sadness & hope, 
Yours Son-in-Law,
Jack Fonyuy Lontum.

Our life on earth is influenced by many different things and many different people. Some people come in our life and go while some stay forever. The universe conspired for us to meet Papa Manjo and there was an instant feeling of belonging with you. You immediately filled the space of a dad that was missing in my heart. I proudly called you daddy and you did not only call me your daughter but you also considered me like one of your daughters. Today you are gone but I know we will meet again, I know you are listening to me. I miss you dearly. I am not giving up on the pepper soup. Please send someone else who will eat the pepper soup because I am going to keep cooking it.
Rest In Peace wherever you are and know that my love for you will remain
forever. ❤️❤️

I proudly called you daddy and you did not only call me your daughter but you also considered me like one of your daughters and more so you had the same first name as my biological dad.

Interestingly you and I also had the same birthday. Today you are gone but I know we will meet again, I know you are listening to me. I miss you dearly. I am not giving up on the pepper soup. Please send someone else who will eat the pepper soup because I am going to keep cooking it.

My loving Daddy, Mentor, Advisor, Teacher and Disciplinarian!

Where are you? Are you truly gone and never to return?

Daddy, I do not have words to express the pain in my heart. I did not know that visiting you at the hospital on December 26th would be our last interaction. Looking back at the sequence of events and our conversations before you went into the hospital, I now know you were trying to prepare me for your departure, but I was too naïve to understand your wise conversations.

Daddy, you sat in the kitchen and had a great conversation/counseling with your grand kids, some of them danced with you and you spoke in French. You even reminded them about who they are and told them to be strong just like you. You spoke with your youngest daughter Jane and asked her to send mom to Nso because you were going to Cameroon to spend Christmas with her. You also told Jane to be sure to give mom a bottle of your favorite wine for you to drink when you get home. You shared a meal with your grandchildren and ate all the snacks they ate. I asked you why you were eating so much. You responded, “my friend leave me alone, just give me the food.” You went on to say loudly with pride and a smile on your face, “Shey WanManjo you are a warrior and I fight with guns and not leaves” Then I did not understand what you were trying to say. Now as I reflect on all your conversations leading up to your hospitalization, you were telling us that you have fought a good fight and ready to transition to the afterlife. Chaaii Papa! Your life journey was unique and ended with dignity just like you have always carried yourself.

Thank you, Papa, immensely for the life lessons you have taught me. When I fall, I will always think of your resilience, determination, and words of advice you would have given me. I will always remember one of your famous quotes, “If you want real change that change must begin with you.” Daddy the pain of losing you is deep, but I know you are watching over us from heaven. I am also comforted knowing that you are no longer in pain and resting in the Lord’s Bosom. Daddy Rest in Peace and have no worries. I promise to take care of mama and the rest of the family. I will uphold your legacy.

Your First and Loving Daughter
Dr. Eunice Manjo Gwanmesia

What is the measure of a man? Is it the amount of money he has? The possessions he owns and the power he holds? Is it the professional success he has achieved over the years?

I don’t believe it is any of these things. The true measure of a man is how much love he gives; how selflessly he shares whatever he can to help others; how consistently he lifts those around him with a kind word, a funny joke, a compliment, a humble ear, or the very shoes off his feet.

By this measure, my Dad was immeasurable.

I lost you, Papa. But only in body, not in spirit. This is by far the most painful and heart-ripping and life-altering experience I have endured especially the fact that I couldn't be there to spend some time with you before you departed.
But I do my best to remain grateful and comforted knowing how much my beloved Dad positively affected the lives of others.

He was the most sincerely altruistic person I have ever seen. A philanthropist, educator, and disciplinarian he was. These could be seen in his interaction with his pupil, children, and the community at large.

At a point in time in my early childhood, I thought you hated me because of your hard principles and norms of life and how you would whoop my ass anytime I went astray. But, in the process of growth, I finally see reason and appreciate every bit of it. You simply shaped me into the gentleman I am today. You believed so much in the adage "spare the rod and spoil the child.'' I bet the truism in it can be seen in the attitude and behavior of your children and pupils because you spared no one.

It breaks my heart to know that all I have left of you is the memory of all the wonderful moments we shared, funny chats, and you calling me "didong" knowing I will not be able to enjoy them anymore. You told me you had many big friends whom you would tell to send a private jet to come take me over to the US to be with you, but finally, you left us without fulfilling that (hehehe). You were a father and grandpa like no other and I would choose you over and over again if I were to. You instilled so many values in us which keep serving as a guide as we lead our lives. I promise to withhold all those principles by so doing, let your legacy live on.

               As I look back over time,
               I find myself wondering ….
               Did we remember to thank you enough
               For all you have done for us?
               For all the times you were by our sides,
               To help and support us ….
               To celebrate our successes
               To understand our problems
               And accept our defeats?
               Or for teaching us by your example,
               The value of hard work,
               Good judgment, persistence
               Courage and integrity?
               I wonder if we ever thanked you
               For the sacrifices you made.
               To let us have the very best?
               And for the simple things
               Like laughter, smiles, and times we shared?
               If we have forgotten to show our
               Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
               We’re thanking you now.
               And we are hoping you knew all along,
               How much you meant to us.

I’ll always remember that special signature smile, that caring heart, that warm embrace, you always gave us. Your being there for Mom and us always, through good and bad times, no matter what. I’ll always remember you Papa because they’ll never be another one to replace you in my heart, and the love I’ll always have for you. If tears could bring you back, I would cry an ocean daddy, but I know you are resting now in the bosom of your creator, free from all pain and in a better place to intercede for us. I pray the angels of the Lord ferry you very safely across if you are still on the way.

I love you so much papa and will always do. ❤❤❤❤❤
Fare thee well papa, my hero, and role model, until we meet to part no more.
Your son and first grandson.

Go well Uncle. I know my Dad Simon Tar will be at that gate waiting to welcome you. You lived a good life Uncle. 25 years after the accident that every one thought would take your life, you lived and thrived. Your disciplined personality afforded everyone who crossed paths with you, the ability to explore the best they could be.
There shall be no more pain Uncle, you started to see your parents towards the end, which was not only proof that they were ready to welcome you into the heavenly kingdom, it was also proof that you were ready to go. We grieve but we are also thankful for the time that God allowed us to enjoy your presence.
Rest on Uncle and sleep in peace. You will forever live in our hearts.

Tribute to Shey Aloys WanManjo (Friend and father)

With sadness and regret, I read the news of your departure on social media. Regret, because circumstances did not permit me to visit and bid you farewell.

First, I thank your ever loving and caring wife and children, for taking excellent care of you till your last moment, and for giving us this space to air a word in your honour.

I could feel the radiation of your gentle and charming smile as I pen these lines. You were commonly known and acclaimed for high principles, discipline and rigour. Who dared stood before you with doubtful facts? Who dared appeared before your presence on false witness? Even on your wheel chair and in pain, you did not blink!

We became friends due to an assignment given by the Bishop of Kumbo in the early years of 2000; though already on your wheel chair; to investigate and reconcile the parties in a protracted dispute over a piece of land belonging to a Catholic School. The facts of your testimony, opinion and counsel brought the matter to a just and fair end. You earned my deep respect! You became my adviser and role model!

I must also thank you for your kindness and generosity, as expressed towards my late aunt-Madam Jaff Cecilia, whom you so dutifully and religiously ferried along, in your car, to the Cathedral for Mass. By so doing, you trained Gerald Manjo, your son, who was your driver and chaperone to Madam Jaff and yourself, on the values of compassion for the elderly and the sick. May the most merciful and generous God, whom you served, grant you eternal rest. Requiscat in pace! Adieu!

his Life
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but to all who have longed for His appearing.
(2 Timothy 4:7-8)

The Story of Life

Sheey WanManjo Aloysius Ngalim (Sheey Woo Ngang) gained his angel wings on January 29th, 2021 at Bayhealth hospital in Dover, Delaware. Sheey was born on September 4, 1937, at Shisong hospital in Kumbo, Cameroon. He was the third and last child of late Papa Robert Manjo and late Mama Catherine Yekov Manjo. He was predeceased by his brother Robert Dzekashu Manjo and sister Rebecca Nsam Manjo. He was known for his benevolent smile and infectious personality. Sheey was nicknamed Apollo 11 (the first man to land on the moon) because of his speeding around Kumbo town and its environs on his Suzuki motorcycle especially when he took off for(to) school. Some people referred to him as teacher Apollo.

Sheey started his teaching career from an early age as an uncertified teacher in 1956 and later attended St. Peter’s Teachers Training College Bambui where he obtained teacher’s grade III, II and I certificate. As a result of his love for education, in 1985, he took the London general certificate of education (GCE O level) and was successful. He served as a teacher with the Catholic Mission for 18years and was a civil servant for 33 years. One of dad’s many accomplishments was being the founding headmaster and teacher at Government School Njavnyuy in 1977. In over five decades as a dedicated educator, he taught and mentored many students who today serve in various walks of life. Many of his students describe him as a true disciplinarian and hold him in high esteem. Sheey held all his students to a standard like any dad would for his children near and afar.

Sheey met the love of his life, Lamkiyan Mary, from Kiyan and after dating for less than a year, they were married on April 4, 1967. Soon after marriage, they moved to Nkar where he taught at Catholic primary school until 1968. As a teacher, he was transferred to many different schools. He often went alone and only came home on weekends, so his wife did not have to move around with the children. Sheey taught in 22 different Catholic schools (Catholic and Public). He ended his career as the Chief of Bureau in charge of administration and finance at the Divisional Delegation of Basic Education in Kumbo, Cameroon. After retirement, Sheey traveled back and forth between Cameroon and the USA. However, since 2015, he didn’t travel back to Cameroon due to his failing health.

Sheey and his beloved wife Mary raised seven children: Eunice B. Gwanmesia married to Francis N. Gwanmesia, Brendaline F. Lontum married to Jack F. Lontum, Gerard A. Manjo, Colin N. Manjo married to Marceline Y. Manjo, Jane-Frances Manjo married to Giles Landze-deceased, Nereus M. Manjo, and Terrill M. Manjo.

Sheey WanManjo was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, father-in-law, uncle, teacher, cousin, and friend. He was a firm, duty conscious, frank, honest, straightforward, respectful, and truthful gentleman. He believed in hard work and always advised us not to keep for tomorrow what you can do today.

In 1996, he was involved in a ghastly car accident which left him in a coma for six months. After his miraculous recovery, he traveled to the US for therapy and returned to work for 11more years before retiring in September of 2007. Sheey was a very resilient man who fought a good fight. God loved him so much and granted him almost 25 years after his accident to live here on earth with his family and friends.

Outside of education, Sheey was a community servant who was passionate about community building and promoting the cultural heritage of his people. Keeping a clean environment (sanitation) was very important to him. He always said, “your environment determines the health status of the people.” Wherever he taught or lived, he made sure that there was portable water, clean toilets, and that the landscape was decorated with flowers. He always provided buckets, cups, and handwashing basins where there was no running water. He loved farming. As a result, at every school where he taught, he sought assistance from the Parent-Teacher Association to plant trees, develop a coffee plantation or grow an orchard. When he was not serving his community or being in the classroom, he spent time farming in his tomatoes garden, palm bush, cattle ranch, coffee farm, planting trees and building fences, or helping mom plant crops in her farm.

To further expand on his spirit of community development, he spearheaded the founding of the Jem/Vekaakui Water Project to provide clean water for his people. The project sought to bring potable water to every household in Jem and Vekaakui quarters. Unfortunately, his deteriorating health was detrimental to the successful completion of the project. However, some families in Jem quarter are enjoying portable and clean water supply today because of this initiative.

He leaves behind his beautiful wife of 53 years, six children, 12 grandchildren, one daughter-in-law, three sons-in-law (one of whom predeceased him), a host of nieces and nephews, many adopted children(including Mami Pepper Soup), countless friends, and buddies to cherish his memories.

He was a great patriarch of his family. Sheey leaves treasured memories and his physical presence will be greatly missed. May his soul and the souls of all departed rest in perfect peace and let perpetual light shine on him.

Favourite Sayings.

  • Never leave for tomorrow what you can do today.
  • If you want real change, that change must begin with you. 
  • Hard work leads to success.

Missing you uncle

Shared by Joyce Sah on March 11, 2021
Tribute to my late uncle Shey Wan Manjo Aloysius

Death is inevitable, it is a journey that everyone must take. Often times we wish death wasn’t a part of our life, we wish we would just stay alive near our
loved ones and never die. Unfortunately, we can‘t. Our prayer is that we fulfill our days on earth and grow old before our time is up.
God saw that you were tired and put His arms around you, asking you to come home and have a sweet happy rest. We watched you after your accident, we saw you struggling and giving your all to be with us your Family, although we loved you dearly, we couldn’t make you stay. A gentle and loving heart stopped beating.
Uncle, Daddy, Grandpa, Opa, I still can’t believe I am writing a tribute to you, am so saddened and full of sorrow. Words cannot describe this moment, but I will use this last minute to say goodbye and thank God for making you part of my journey in this world. 
You touched many lives, not only through your dedication as a father, uncle, brother, nephew, cousin, educator or Shey Nwerong Nso (which you paraded with pride and that smile of yours) but what was sure about you was, you laid a part for others to succeed. 
Many young Nso men and woman can testify. 
You were an uncle in a million, not only through your kindness but you had your eyes over me while I was growing up in Kumbo. You scolded me when you found me in situations you never deemed legit, but always motivated me to work hard. I remember like yesterday the sound of your Voxwagen when you stopped by to see if we were OK and the last time you called despite your health trying to inquire how I was doing with the kids. I wish my Boyz had the chance to see and know you. 
Your death might not be a shock to many but I did not expect it and wished you had more time to be with us but God in His infinite wisdom knows best. You will always be an inspiration to me, you left a void that can’t be filled. 
While I mourn you, I also accept the fact that you rocked the stage and fulfilled your message.
My Boyz and I bid you farewell and thank God for your life till we meet to part no more.
RIP sweet uncle for God only takes the Best
