The late father of one of Nigeria’s popular models, Marylyn Ojespadi Nwene nee Ojehonmon who died recently has been buried in Edo State in grand style. The beautiful damsel who was once a notable fashion model and catwalk expert before relocating to the U.S lost her father, Pa Chief John Ojehonmon to the cold hands of death.
The deceased, a retired customs officer was a devout Christian and a man of several immense parts who meant many things to many people.
Pa Ojehonmon was an Altar boy in the Catholic Church, he later became a chorister, then a teacher, a great writer and very good artist- he could draw anything he was asked to. He was a Customs officer for so many years before he retired and started his own Clearing and Forwarding Agency, Owan All Marine Ltd.
According to Marylyn who’s the family spokesperson, Pa Ojehonmon who’s survived with children and great grand children will be remembered for his good nature and uprightness in the society.
He succumbed to fate after a protracted battle with prostate cancer. A befitting wake keep service led by Rev. Father Charles Ufomadu from Imo state was held in his honour on Friday, September 23rd, 2011 in Los Angeles, California U.S.A where friends and well wishers trooped out to pay him the last respect.
The remains of the devout man of God were committed to mother earth in his home town, Sabongida Ora, Edo State on Saturday, October 29th, 2011 while Christian wake keep held the previous day. Here are the burial pictures.
