Memorial - Celebrating A Life of Gratitude - held for Adedapo (Dapo) Awotoye
New York: An ECK memorial service titled "Celebrating A Life of Gratitude" was recently held for Adedapo (Dapo) Awotoye who passed into glory on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Born on July 19, 1963 in Iludun-Oro, Kwara State, Nigeria, to the late Pa Titus and Prophetess Victoria Awotoye, he is the fourth of six children. A gentle and loving soul, Dapo lived a life of gratitude to the very end and saw everyone as connected by divine love - "Ife Oluwa lo so wa po" in yoruba was one of his favorite sayings.
His life and fight of faith remains a testimony to his loving wife of 26 years (Eno Awotoye), his mother (Prophetess Victoria Awotoye), sister (Deaconness Oluyinka Adeyemi), brothers (General Adewale Awotoye and Pastor Abayomi Awotoye), and numerous uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, colleagues, family friends and the Nigerian community which he loved and actively participated in.
His deep love for God and fellow souls is reflected by his unrelenting service to all life, inspirational stories and whole hearted infectious laughter. From youth as a scout to adulthood as a high initiate of Eckankar – The Path of Spiritual Freedom, Dapo’s selfless commitment and genuine generosity to others will be forever remembered by those whose lives he touched worldwide and beyond.
