What a privilege it has been to spend time with this dear man. My only regret is that I didn’t know Tunde for very long before he became unwell. I have greatly valued the stories & pictures friends & family have shared. It’s been lovely to see all the different parts to this beautiful, gentle man. I will remember Tunde’s absolute humility despite his considerable intelligence and ability. He always played things down, never made a fuss and made you feel special because he took the time to listen to you.
This wonderful man married our daughter, Tess and brought such joy into our family….. the husband of our daughter, the father to our first grandchild, precious Josiah. We couldn’t have a man of greater integrity and character join our family. We will always be grateful to Tunde for making our daughter so happy & complete. Tess & Tunde were soul mates, brought together by God and the love they had for each other was beautiful to see.
It is so hard for us now Tunde, without your beautiful smile and your easy, warm manner around us. The hole you leave is huge…. You touched so many lives with your kindness and love. The inspirational way you managed your illness, without a word of complaint, will stay with me forever. You lived your faith, every day of your life. You are now at home with your heavenly Father, enjoying Paradise with your beautiful son. You have left a wonderful legacy, dear Tunde. We will try and live up to it.

Dear Tunde, I have spent days trying to come up with the words to say that properly convey how I feel, and do justice to the beautiful person you are. But I have now realized I don't know enough words to say how sad I am to have had to say goodbye to you so soon, and will just leave it at this: I love you, and I miss you, and that even though I didn't get to spend as much time with you as I would have liked over the last few years, your warmth, and grace, and unending love for Tess radiated all the way to Australia (and Canada). You will be missed by so many. I love you brother xoxox
Tunde - 'The Man of Strength and Honour'
When i first met Tunde i had no idea of the journey that lay ahead. Tunde always a man of few words welcomed me into his home as if i was already family. over the year and a half that i knew Tunde i waited for the day he would complain, for him to tell me he had had enough and didn't want to see me today, that day never came. Tundes strength and faith were unbreakable. we would have amazing conversations, and laugh daily even through the hardest days. Tunde would always smile and that amazing smile could light up the whole room. T&T's love for each other and for God was pure and beautiful. Tunde was always kind, and saw the good in everyone, he had a heart of pure gold. Throughout my time with Tunde he gave me great advice and even gave me back my own faith. Tundes legacy will be though what he has done for others, a real inspiration. A real gentleman and i will never forget my time with him. your home with the lord now, too beautiful for this world. i love you Babatunde, rest in peace xxx
An article in the local paper features some lovely words from Tunde's headteachers at Leventhorpe School & Petchey Academy https://www.hertsandessexobserver.co.uk/Tributes-paid-death-age-32-teacher-Leventhorpe/story-27652507-detail/story.html
Thanks for sharing Tessie! Great article- I love hearing about what an amazing teacher he was and how much his students love and respect him. He really did have the BEST smile, and a 'breath of fresh air' is a perfect way to describe him. Xxx
When I think of Tunde I see his beautiful smile which he so generously shared with everyone. A calm, patient gentleman who will be sadly missed. Deepest sympathies to Tunde's family and friends, my thoughts are with you. Rest in peace Tunde Xx
I'll always treasure the time I spent with Tunde earlier this year. He dealt with the debilitating illness with such grace. He was inspiring, never complained once. He had a great smile and gentle nature. It was a privilege to live the day to day with Tess and Tunde for a short time, and witness the pure love they had for each other. The world would be 100% better with more people like Tunde.
Tunde, the perfect gentleman with a ready smile for everyone. Your life with us will always be remembered. Rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. My thoughts are with Tess and the entire family at this very somber time. Shoboi.
RIP Young man, an angel who began his journey on earth to b taken from us to continue his mission amongst other angels. U will surely b missed. Beautiful soul!
