Obituary

Mr. John Ozolua Afolabi Omoijuanfo, of blessed memory, was born June 3,1950 in the city of Eme-Ora, Edo State Nigeria, to Chief Daniel and Mrs. Veronica Omoijuanfo. John was the eldest child of ten children. He attended elementary and high school in Edo State, Nigeria. John traveled to Italy in 1974, then to Austria and Norway before settling down in Washington D.C., U.S.A. It was there, John furthered his education, and where he later met his wife of 44 years, Margie. John, and his family, relocated from Washington D.C to Montgomery, AL, where he continued his education and received his Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. The family relocated to Birmingham, AL, where John obtained both, his Masters and Ed.S in the Counseling/Social Work John was baptized in 1987 under the tutelage of Reverend Oscar Lee Huntley. Around 1987, John obtained a dual citizenship with Nigeria and The United States of America. John took up is his residence in Bessemer, Alabama until his transition on June 13, 2021. John Omoijuanfo was so proud of his origin. He followed his mother’s wishes to assist his siblings the best way he can and that, family comes first, something his mom instilled in him. Big John, as  he was affectionately called by some, utilized his degrees to the fullest in that he counseled those he felt needed it. John had a very distinctive laugh, and he loved to sing songs, oftentimes incorporating his own lyrics. John was last employed, part-time, with STS. Following a good will surely be missed!
