Mr. Kwesi Boadjo

Born Into Time: September 25, 1949
Born Into Eternity: June 25, 2017

Kwesi Boadjo was born to Kodzo Anansey and Edith Akonsi Ampofo on September 25, 1946 in Santrokofi Benua, Volta, Ghana. He was one of 8 children. Even at a very young age, his brilliant mind shined as he excelled in his education. He attended Adisadel College in Ghana, one of the most prestigious high schools in the country. This outstanding learning institution was the high school of choice for the elite and their children. Kwesi graduated with honors and accepted admission to The Ohio State University. He later went on to attend Eastern Carolina University in North Carolina where he received his Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

He moved back to Chicago where he worked as a Registered Nurse at Mount Sinai Pediatric Unit. His love for healing children led him to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the University of Illinois at Chicago. From 1996 until his passing, he devoted his time, his skill and his heart to caring for others as a healthcare professional, a co-worker and friend.

Kwesi Boadjo, ever known for his generosity and selflessness, opened his doors to the congregation of Faith Victory Ministries International from 2008-2010. For those early years of ministry, Kwesi’s home served as a house of worship. He’d later become the church’s treasurer and the head of FVMI’s men’s ministry. He was everybody’s brother, he was everybody’s father, and he was everybody’s uncle. He was the type of person that would take you under his wing and guide you. He would pray with you, laugh with you, cry with you. He kept your secrets, he commanded respect and he was charming. But most of all, he was loved by all who encountered him.

Kwesi Boadjo went home to glory on June 25, 2017. He is preceded in death by his parents, Kodzo Anansey and Edith Akonsi Ampofo; his brother, Kofi Anansey and his sister, Charlotte Ceasar. He will be missed by his wife, Adjoa Boadjo; daughter, Mabel Akpene Boadjo-Abofra; his sons, Delali Anansey, and Yanieta Boadjo and grandchildren, Selorm and Seyram Abofra. He will also be missed by his siblings, extended family and friends.

It's been very difficult for me personally loosing brother Kwesi whom l came to know when l arrived in Chicago in the year 1985 when l was living with brother Kweku Poku. I remember him picking me up and taking me to Jewel grocery store on Broadway street buying meat to prepare fufu any time he is off work until my relocation with Pan American Airways to Newyork and finally relocated to Texas with American Airlines. Kwesi always gave me advice about what to do when l need one. A very nice and generous person he was.l would definitely miss him. May the almighty takes him into internity. Brother Kwesi safe journey and rest in peace.
