It was so sad to hear of your passing, Daddy Funke Aisida, I grew up knowing you as a very good friend to my late dad and a brother to my late mum as well. You were always there for the people you called your own. You always spoke in loving tones to everyone young and old. We will surely miss you. May your soul rest in perfect peace sir.

I mourn the passing of a distinguished Aquinarian; a fellow towns- folk of noble Owo parentage; a stalwart of Methodist Church Nigeria, Cathedral of Faith,Owo; a knight of John Wesley;a Patriot; a classmate;a friend ; the co-ordinator of my set - 62/66 and above all a man of integrity and a man of impeccable character .
I called him up when I arrived UK last week and followed up with a text. No reply. Leaving UK for US yesterday, I repeated the call. No reply.
It was in the middle of the night in NY that another distinguished Aquinarian with contacts in UK called me to pass on the sad news. I needed to cross check. Sadly it is true.
I will miss him tremendously.
May the soul of Padico, our Padico , find favour with the Lord and rest in perfect peace in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ Amen.

Your cheerfulness and words of encouragement shall be missed forever. Continue to rest in the blossom of the lord. The Lord Almighty will console and be with the family you left behind.

Sir Patrick Tayo Adedapo_Aisida was one of the prominent members of Akure_based Owo indigenes of Methodist Church Akure.He was a Colossus who exhibited love to all and sundry while he was with us .He was not only a proud Methodist but ardent Owo indigene too.
He was one of the proponents for the Creation of Owo as a Diocese out of the defunct Owo Diocese whose headquarters was in Akure.To the glory of God this materialised before his home call.Without being immodest he contributed immensely to Methodist Church Akure and this is an established fact which any member could attest to.However,we commeserate with Lady Aisida, children, family and the household of God for this irreparable loss.Our prayer is that God shall give us all the fortitude to bear this great loss.Adiue! Sir Tayo Aisida.

Sir Tayo was such a caring and thoughtful man. He was always willing to help. He was full of words of wisdom and encouragement. I will surely miss him.

It is surreal and difficult to process, digest and accept but that is it, the finality of death.

Our Special Person has journeyed home to join the saints triumphant, his demise was unexpected and really stung us.

Our last physical encounter was in 1st & 2nd December 2024 where we as usual exchanged banters, jokes and laughter with my elder brother and the wife in attendance. He did not complain about any serious health issues but what went wrong?

Padico as you are fondly called, you have done your dandy-most best in the space fate allotted but you will remain as our big brother, a stepping stone to our success and the memory of the Tree we shall never forget.

Padico, in you:
we have lost a relationship spanning about five (5) decades, a dynamic personality, mentor and an eagle-eyed man of conscience and probity.

But God knows best.
Sleep well in the night of your eternal tomorrows.
Enjoy the beautiful evenings of eternity.
Till Resurrection Day.
Your second birthday in Christ.

Dearest Father,

I knew some day I’ll have to do this tribute as you’d always prayed for, but not as soon and sudden as it turned out to be.
Padico, like you were fondly called was a name that reverberated in my early youth days fresh from the university when you took myself and my late brother like your biological sons. You were there for us, two young boys brought up by a single mum, and you stepped in to help shape our lives at the most critical stage of our youth lives.
You deliberately stooped low to have us in your warm embrace. You taught me life lessons, shared life experiences and stories. You took me almost everywhere from the farmlands to markets, cocoa stores to cashew storages, villages and cities, and inculcated invaluable entrepreneurial skills, hard work values and I-can-do-it spirit in me. How will I forget the role you played starting out in my early job career, choice of my life partner, raising the kids, my journey into entrepreneurship etc, I could go on.. too numerous to mention.
I recall when my only brother passed away also in the UK few years ago, you were the very first person I called to break the news as his father, even though as broken as you were, but you still guided me all through this most difficult period of my life. You were there all through..
I also fondly recall every year, our family tradition was to spend every Christmas Eve with you in your house with such beautiful moments we always shared and longed for.
Your prayers and constant words of counsel to me has contributed to who I am today.
Your passing is a tragic loss for me.
Nevertheless, the memories of the beautiful moments we shared with you is a source of strength and courage. Your legacy lingers on in the hearts of many that bore testament of your good heart/works. Writing this is quite emotional for me, but you will forever remain in my/our heart, dearest Padico my guardian and father.
Rest well sir, till we meet again….
Your Son, Femi Olushakin

Daddy adieu. You would have turned 75 today. There is no way to say happy birthday. We all have a race to run and there is always a finishing line. I spoke with you before you left to the UK and never knew that will be the last time!
Anytime I call you, you always call me with an accent ‘Funke Bawo ni, So wa, Lanre nko or oko e nko, then always a long conversation.
You are awesome, affectionate, amazing, loving, caring and always there for me!
Before I got married, when I got married, when my father died, when my mum passed, during my 60th birthday and when there was something to be done in the Olarinde family. My father always call you Iba(daddy) Funke and you took that role when he passed.
You always have a gift for me anytime I visit, even flip flops. We always talk for several hours with me lying or sitting on your bed with my husband and wife. I remembered a time that my husband was not around, you made to sleep on the same bed with you and your wife. You have so many pet names for me especially when I speak in Owo. You look gave me that and smile,
Daddy I can go on and on. I never knew the journey could end this way. I have good memories about you that I will remember for life. Holding me anytime we are leaving and praying for me inOwo dialect. I cherish every moment I spend with you, there was never a dull moment. So is the end of the journey? The last message when you were in the hospital was that you were not allowed to talk. I was looking towards a Thanksgiving celebration and my next trip to Owo. You lived a good life and touched so many lives. A good legacy. Daddy thank you so much for everything you did for me. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! Sleep on till that resurrection day! Love you daddy.

The call to glory of Sir P.O.Adedapo-Aisida was sudden. Padico was a bold and God fearing man. He was always cheerful and in good spirits. He never mince words or tried to please anyone, he was true to himself, his Association and God.
We thought he will be us for more years but death took him unaware.
Despite his affluence and popularity, he humbled himself to be of great help to the people around him.
Our Padico, you shall be greatly missed in our midst, Olajugba Quarters Landlords and landlady's association Ilesha Road Akure, rest in peace till we meet and part no more. We love you but God loves you more. Adieu..

My Dear Padico,

We give God all the glory because this is a celebration of life. You lived a full life!

Your business nuggets will ever remain with me.
One of my most valuable money lessons u taught me; Niji do not chase money, Niji chase value and money will come! As simple as that phrase was, as I grow older and more experienced that phrase remains invaluable.

A generous man( I remember when Funke brought my 21st birthday gift cheque for my 3 CD changer back then, Lol)

We give God the glory for a life well lived!

Rest in peace Padico!

Dear sir, hnnnnnnnm.
I am short of words to describe you, a man of many parts with hope of better future.
Thorough and fair, teachers to those willing to learn but pain to the lazy.
You taught and told me to work hard, not to take bribe as civil servant, I adhered to strictly and it pays. He didn't take or accept while in service of Ondo State. Very rear among his contemporaries, this he acknowledged always while alive.
Sir, you are a prophet and seer, because you say or tell about a thing, if diligently followed, do came as you have said it.
Padico, a detailed and thorough man, discipline and diligent.
Saying I missed you is not enough, your words of encouragement and advice is on marble. I lived with you since 1979 till you journey we were still together, ooooo.
You had lived, seen, fought, conquered, achieved and gone to rest.

Writing a tribute for the irreplaceable man isn’t something I expected this early in his life & this year. I’m eternally grateful , appreciative & thankful that you were the one God placed to bring me to this world to nurture, lead in the right direction in this world. You lived an exemplary life which made everyone want to be a part of your radiating & radical brilliance. You touched a plethora of lives who have followed your guidance & hence, improved theirs. A great role model whose steps & quality should be followed & studied. A respectful, thoughtful & strategic man even till the end. A real superstar. I love you Daddy. Sir OMOTAYO PATRICK ADEDAPO-AISIDA aka PADICO. Gone but never forgotten & your influence lives on strongly.

I delayed writing this but figured I have to write it anyway. I wanted to write something profound but I figured it's better to write something genuine.

I remember my exciting visits to Akure and when I stayed at your house. I remember having to wake up on cold mornings and wondering what kind of weather is this? I remember you teaching me how to wash your cars so they will last longer. I used to think what kind of suffer head is this but they were life lessons. I think you're the reason I don't wash my cars with detergent and I ensure they always wash the tire region with detail. I remember loving the smell of wood because of your house. I remember loving staying in your room upstairs and you watching one of those financial channels (Bloomberg, I think). I remember catching those flies in water and frying them. A lot of exciting memories.

I guess when the ones you love leave, they don't take the memories with them. Thank you for the memories.

Brother Tayo as we fondly called him lived an impactful life. Indeed he was a great man. He invested his time, resources, wisdom and knowledge in others.
He was not only a prominent son of Chief Jacob Adedapo Aisida, he was also an illustrious son of Owo. He worked tirelessly to establish himself in the business world. Despite the fact that God smiled on him, he had no airs. He was a down to earth and selfless person. He was an infectiously happy personality. He was a "son" of our dad who meant so much to him and to us as our big brother.
He left behind memories that can not be erased. We deeply loved him. He will be sorely missed.
Adieu, brother Tayo. Rest in peace.

Tribute to an Icon

It is truly difficult to say this final goodbye. I am writing to pay tribute to an extraordinary man, Mr. Patrick Omotayo Adedapo Aisida. He embodied wisdom, kindness, and integrity. He passed away peacefully on the 16th may 2024, in Aberdeen, Scotland at the age of 74.

I spent many hours in Akure/Owo with him, sitting outside and listening intently as he shared stories rich with lessons about life, history, and the world around us. These moments are among my most treasured memories, times when his simple yet profound words seemed to make the world pause.

Brother Tayo lived a distinguished and fulfilling life. His achievements were numerous, yet he never sought the limelight. He dedicated his efforts to making a positive difference in the lives of others, whether through his professional pursuits, his community service, or the wisdom he imparted.

To the world, he was a respected and accomplished individual, a leader in his field. To me, he was much more. As a father, he was a mentor and unwavering supporter. As a patriarch, he was a source of pride and joy to his family.

As I reflect on his life and legacy today, I feel an immense sense of pride in having called him my brother-in-law.

Although his physical presence is no longer with us, may his spirit continue to guide and inspire us. His life's work, his values, and his love will live on in each of us. Let us honor his memory by living our lives with the same integrity, passion, and love that he demonstrated every day.

May your gentle soul rest in peace brother Tayo.

A great soul has gone to rest.
Sir Tayo Aisida, father of boys!
An Elderstateman, a great Aquinarian (ACA). The patron of our club, Akure Primrose Club.
He was a great man of honor and integrity.

He loved the city of Akure and Aquinas College Akure, his Alma mater with passion, always ready to associate himself with us, the younger ones, and helped.
A retired Civil Servant per Excellent, A successful cocoa merchant and petroleum businessman.

Though he was very young to my dad, they related together as friends, he calls my dad awe mi, i.e., my friend. (Akure dialect) and jokes like mates.
He encouraged me to get married even when I had nothing. Apart from his financial support, he was at my engagement and wedding.
During my dad's burial, he traveled down from Owo to attend even when I forgot to send an invitation to him. He was with me throughout.

An Owo man who was always proud to call himself an Akure indigen.
His knowledge of Akure history was superb, and his control of Akure dialect was second to none. Always encouraging us to protect the culture and heritage of Akure City. He was indeed an Akure man.

Some of us who were privileged to be under his tutelage at Oluwatuyi Quarters Akure learnt a lot from him growing up. He trained us to always stand for the truth without fear, never to waste any opportunity, and be prudent with money.

No dull moment with him, a jolly good Uncle, always with one story or the other to tell us and learn from.
He was a strict and no nonsense Uncle.
He will surely be missed. His fashion (dress to kill), speaking styles, majestic walking steps, etc. won't be forgotten.

May God comfort the family he left behind, Amen!
Rest on our Padico.

Baba Funke as I normally call you, you are such an amazing, trustworthy, free giver and so humorous a person. You are a friend in need and indeed. The house Akin Taylor your very good friend had in Owo today was your making . You got the land and put up the beautiful building for us I will forever be grateful to you and to God Almighty because some friends will collect such money and there will never be result but yours was not the case. You are very honest and loving. How can I forget your numerous gifts to me. All your efforts to give Akin your good friend a befitting burial will forever be remembered. Your exit was so painful but who are we to query God. You have come you have seen and you have conquered glory be to God Almighty. Ecc.8:8 says “There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death” but our solace is that God will redeem your soul from the power of the grave and will receive your soul Ps.49:15. May his soul rest in peace IJCMN 🙏🏻

Padico, Rest well Egbon mi

I woke up to a terrible news this Friday morning and I couldn't believe it until I put a call to Funmi in London who invariably confirmed that the Great Padico, my Egbon, My Elder and Senior at Aquinas College Old Students family, My Consultant on the history and affairs of our land Owo Kingdom, Sir Patrick Tayo Adedapo Aisida alias Padico is gone, gone the way of all Mortals and never to be seen again.

Broda Tayo will meticulously read any of my posts on our WhatsApp platform and fb and will put a call to me either to praise my writing or make correction or give me more information to educate me especially on the history of our land, Owo Kingdom.

Padico will always tell me ... Foluso, ka bere itan, get your facts clearly. He promised to availed me a copy of the recommendation of a panel set up by Aketi former Governor of Ondo State on Owo Polytechnic of which he was a Member.

Padico told me that Owo town was so Great during the first Republic Nigeria trailing behind Ibadan in infrastructure and prestige, far ahead of Akure and many towns in the Western Region.

Sir Tayo Aisida was a repository of knowledge on the history of Owo Kingdom. I am yet to meet an Owo Son that is so passionate, well versed in history of Owo Kingdom like Sir Tayo Aisida.

We have lost a torchlight in Owo Kingdom, we have lost an Elder that belongs to all. We have lost a true son of Owo land. We have lost one of the Engines that silently propels Owo Kingdom.

At our common Heritage, Aquinas College Akure, Padico was so proud of ACA, an Elder and a Senior Old Student that is always at home with any sets, either you are a youth or an Elder.

Egbon mi, my Padico, you have answered the ultimate call, taking a bow that all Mortals must take at one point or another. I attest that you have impacted greatly on humanity, you were an Adviser and a shoulder to many of us the younger Generation. I am a Beneficiary of your wisdom, your influence and advice.

Death is never a sin and not a crime but a debt that we all must pay. Rest well my Big Brother Rest well the Great Padico. My Wife Princess Defunke whom you were so fond of join me to wish you a safe passage. Farewell my Big Brother

He was a great man. I knew him when I was little through my dad.

Coincidentally, he and the late Justice Falodun (also an ACA Alumni) encouraged my dad into bringing me to ACA.

How has the mighty fallen! Tell it on the streets of Akure. Publish it in every nooks and crannies of Ondo State. Let the children of Nigeria mourn for an icon has passed.

Oh Daddy Padico, What an amazing Father you are, you sponsored my academics when i was in the university, you took me like a son even though you are my father's friend and granted me access to you anytime i needed to see you. Your good heart is too amazing. I remember the values you impacted in me and telling me amazing stories about my late Father and how you always call him by His nickname, AGBO (RAM).

I chatted you just some weeks to your passing expressing how I was longing to see you again whenever I'm back in Nigeria and you told me we'd see at the right time, never knew you meant we'll see in paradise. God bless your soul and Thank you for all you do Daddy.

Both of attended the handover Ceremony of the New Laboratory to ACA by MTN.
It was then time to cut the tape at the entrance of the Laboratories.
We stayed together and when he saw the Official Photographer of MTN, he insisted that the Photographer should take the picture of myself and an Official of the MTN, introducimg as an Elder and Older Member of the Institution.
His respect for his Seniors, was unimaginable.
May his soul rest in peace.

You came,
You saw,
