Cousin Adesola, a loveable gentle giant Rest In Peace
Posted by Naomi Createslife on February 27, 2021
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.
You touched so many lives by your selfless and countless acts of kindness, always giving and never expecting any favours in return. Your dedication to a cause was what set you apart. For every institution you worked for, you laid the path for others to succeed.
Uncle, you were and will always be an inspiration to myself, the entire family and anyone who worked with you. You have left a void in the family that can't be filled.
While we mourn today, we also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth have been fulfilled. We thank the Lord for your life and bid you farewell until we meet again.

Adieu Uncle

Brother Ade ❤ as we fondly call u, your life was purposeful & impactful. You were kind, thoughtful and generous. You always put others first and mindful of their needs.
I was very young but I remember your ❤determination as a medical student when you lived in our BQ on OAU quarters. ❤ I remember my Sister & I running round the garden and going very quiet round the BQ because you were not to be disturbed.
I remember your love & commitment to my parents and to the entire family.❤
You loved freely, you gave generously, you served faithfully and you lived unapologetically.
Our lives is richer because of you, our faith is stronger ❤because you left a legacy that is strong & indestructible.

It's with deepest sorrow and sadness that I write this tribute to you.
Brother, as we fondly calls you, you were a great man with a great heart, who took everyone as his own and never looked down on anyone.
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 live this life as your brother. You touched so many lives by your selfless and countless acts of kindness and love, always giving and never expecting any favours in return.
I don't think of you as gone away, I just think of you as resting in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
May your soul rest in peace brother

Prof was everything to me. I met him in 88 after the birth of my nephew, who was born at about 27 weeks and was in incubator for weeks. He will come in the middle of the night and bring huge textbooks and stayed till morning before going home. The day my nephew slept very well, he was the first to tell my sister your baby is getting better and he was with us like a rock and when my mum told him l am a medical student he was very happy.
I lived in his staff house. He was a very good cook. He got me into the habit of studying and praying and always taking me everywhere. l am very sure to this day people think we are blood brothers and would ask me where is your brother in Wesley.
Whatever am l today after God Almighty, he was part of it all. I was in Ondo for his wedding to his lovely and God fearing wife. I am a benefactor of his humility and generosity. Even after my graduation I can call him anytime and tell him things. He will smile and with serious look again advice me on what to do. He was part of everything we do in the family even recently the burial of my late dad. I am still not able to break your rest to my mother.
Your rest sir is still a shock, but you will never be forgotten and for generations  the story of your gentleness, humility, dedication to service and hard work will be told under the moonlights.
Good night Prof.

Dr Aladekomo was my classmate in Medical School at Ife. This is an ode to a great guy.
A perfect gentleman, peaceful, loving, sensitive and compassionate. A solid shoulder to rest on. You represented the ancient landmark when we were just tots. We saw you as old, unrefined but solid in character and brimming with integrity. You were serious, studious a mature student ruefully tolerant of our youthful exuberance; reminding us laughingly but seriously of the reason for our being in the University and the expectations of our parents. Alade guysies, you were old fashioned but of vintage stuff. I remember your trousers like that of an old teacher, just above the ankles. You dedicated yourself to what you believed in and you excelled. I consider you a general in life and a conqueror in death. Reign supreme dear Maths Major among the saints triumphant. Your toil has come to end as you enter eternal bliss. We shall meet again if we remain faithful, on resurrection morning at the feet of our Lord and Saviour. Shalom. shine on Alade.

Adieu ! Our Benefactor
Dr T. A. Aladekomo
I got to know you about one and half decade ago when I was a teacher to your children. You have since then taken me as your blood brother.
Years later we became neighbour.
What would I say about you,
The news of your sudden death came to us as a rude shock.
You are very passionate, generous, loving, caring and accommodating, you are always ready to assist anyone that comes your way.
Your special love for me, my family and my loved ones is unquantifiable, you are always there to give every necessary succor to my yearning.
Sleep on ! "Our Big Daddy"
Sleep on our Benefactor
We are missing you, and you shall be greatly missed.
The only solace we have is that you are indeed a child of God during your life time.
Till we meet on the day of resurrection when we shall depart no more. Rest in Peace.
*Rev. & Mrs. Sobalaje*

Dr. ALADEKOMO. YOU CAME AND CONQUERED. DID WHATEVER YOU DID TO SERVE HUMANITY. AS YOU DEPARTED THIS SINFUL WORLD. YOU ARE MOST LIKELY WITH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, AT HIS BOSSOM. WE WILL ALL MISS YOU. YOU WERE A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW. BABA ALADE, REST IN PERFECT PEACE. THE EGWUS - USA.

The news of your death shook me to the bones and made me realise the nothingness of this world. Life on earth is passing vanity and show. God alone is changeless and immortal. He alone is true. Seeking Heaven alone brings true happiness.
Thanks be to God, because you knew God, you loved God, you served God and you died in Christ.
May the gentle and kind soul of my dear classmate, friend and colleague of 44years - Dr. Theophilus Adesola Aladekomo rest in perfect peace. May the Almighty God uphold and comfort the family and loved ones left behind.

YOU TOUCHED EVERY SOUL

You turned every rock.
You turned every rock.

With your hands,
every rock you turned;
no rock you left unturned-
You turned every rock;
You turned every Rock.

With your smile,
every heart you touched;
no heart you left untouched-
You touched every heart;
you touched every heart.

With your tongue,
you touched every soul;
no soul you left untouched-
You touched every soul;
you touched every soul.

You turned every rock.
You turned every rock.

You were fondly called MathsMay by our classmates. I am not in, on the reason why, to this day. I had imagined that it will be a subject of discussion at our next reunion.
You were obviously older than most of us in the 1977 IfeMed class, very matured, very responsible- not that the others were irresponsible but the youthful exuberance played out.
However you were still one of us.
So I chose to call you Baba Aladeh...,
We sat together with your son at our first ever reunion dinner which was well organised by you and MOPP.
Who would have known it would be our only reunion with you.....
Sleep tight Baba Aladeh...,,,,

My immediate reaction shared on our class WhatsApp platform-“What!!! Please!!!! Again!!!! My dearest Maths Major!!!! Completely at a loss for words! May the Lord comfort his family, Amen!!”

A great host during the class reunion in November 2019 along with Mope. A giant in love and patience. A gentleman to the core and one I’m proud to call my very good friend. A rude reminder of brevity of life in our mortal state. Thank God for the comfort in the hope of salvation.

Dr. Theophilus Adesola Aladekomo was a man of God, a man of faith and a man of prayers. He was kind to a fault; quick to say sorry even if not at fault.
Just let Oga know about your challenges and complaints then consider it settled. He was open and free with all and can discuss his plans and ambitions with you as if you are his uterine sib.
Oga Aladekomo was a workaholic with an intimidating stature like a lion, but was as gentle as a lamb. He obviously took after the Lion of the generation of Judah who also happens to be the Lamb of God.
I pray the Lord rests your soul among the saints triumphant and take good care of your family and dependants. May he console us all and get us prepared for our own day. Amen! Rest in peace Oga.

Dr. Aladekomo was not just my teacher , he was a role model and in fact a father.
He spoke few words but full of actions. He was a gentle soul with a peaceful heart yet can be fierce when situation demands.
Giant in strides with a deep voice but will not hurt any.
His huge sense of humour will catch you totally unawares.
He is perhaps the tallest in the hospital yet the most down to earth.
His face looks tough but on closer encounter his heart is soft.
Oh death, why?
He will tell me all his plans as though he needed my words of advice, but that is him.
A man full of grace.
He bears his mind out and the next moment he puts all behind.
I thought some day he will know how highly I regard him, I really do hope he knows.
Your footprints are indelibly engraved in my heart.
You will be forever missed Sir. God will preserve all that is yours.
Adieu Papa.

Recent stories

Generous Brother Ade

Shared by Toyin Busari (nee Aladeko... on February 26, 2021
So many stories to share but this particular one stands out.
The year was 1990, cant remember the month but I think it was March or April.
Brother Ade popped in to say hello to us at our house in OAU quarters. Bisi (my sister) and I were studying for the JAMB examination which was coming up later in the year. Bros asked if weve registered for the examination and we told him Daddy will give us the money as soon as he gets paid that month.
Bros asked us where to get the forms from, we took him there, he paid for both forms, took us to take passport pics to stick on the forms and he paid for that as well.
We wrote the examination in May/ June, we both passed and got admitted to study Accounting at OAU.
In 1995 we both graduated with honours, Bisi with 1st class and I with a 2nd upper.
Now in our late 40's we cannot think about our lives without remembering the role that Bros Ade played in it.
Goodnight Big Brother.
Sleep on the bosom of our Lord
See u again on resurrection morning. ❤
