Emmanuel Oseku Afful
April 4, 1938-May 17, 2020
Emmanuel Oseku Afful, 82, of Toronto, Ontario died on Sunday May, 17, 2020. Emmanuel was born on April 4,1938, in Accra, Ghana, to Bruce Afful and Sarah Parker Allotey.
He graduated in 1954 from the Government Boys School, Accra. His aspiration to pursue higher education was not feasible due to financial constraints. He was trained as a tailor, and subsequently employed at a privately-owned tailoring company at Sualaba, a suburb of Accra, Ghana. He also provided tailoring services in his home in Accra Ghana, until he migrated to Canada in 1970.
Emmanuel completed multiple courses at the University of Toronto-School of Continuing Studies in the early 1970s.
He was employed by the Canadian National Railway until his retirement.
Emmanuel was a very generous man and lived a simple life. He was always eager to help various members of his extended family. He had a very good memory, even after living 50 years away from his native Ghana. He remembered details of all his extended family members, and kept up to date on international events. He would forward mail clippings of updated research articles from journals relevant to each recipient’s profession, on quarterly basis.
He was passionate about the Arts and Drama, and sometimes participated as an actor, or as a lighting technician.
Emmanuel is survived by his sisters: Elizabeth Akaawa Afful and Margaret Kabuki Nartey, of Accra, Ghana. He was preceded in death by his parents: Bruce Afful and Sarah Parker Allotey of Accra, Ghana, and by his brothers: Samuel Kweku Akaa Afful, Isaac Ayensu Afful, and Eric Kpakpo Hoffmann.
May the soul of Emmanuel Oseku Afful rest perfectly in the peace of our Heavenly Father.
