There are times when no amount of words, no matter how beautifully it is stringed together can capture or express the depth of passage of an icon. Such has been the state of mind of industrial trailblazer and philanthropist par –excellence, Apostle Emmanuel Aderemi Awode, who has just lost his loving and beloved dad, Snr. Apostle Dr. Dickson Awode who was born on Saturday 27, November 1937 and had his last breath on Dec 18, 2018.
The CEO of Chemstar Manufacturing industries, makers of Finecoat paint, Shield paint and other allied products, Remi Awode is formally announcing the transition to heavenly glory of his beloved father, with a humble call to all and sundry to come join and celebrate a rare gem who lived a good life filled with love for God and humanity.
Pa Dickson Awode, the Ikorodu born 81 year old Patriarch of the Awode family truly lived a selfless worthy life to be emulated by those he left behind. Papa bade the world farewell on Tuesday, 18th December, 2018.
Plans to bid PA Dickson Awode a triumphant farewell as demanded by his status of being a Christian soldier and champion from the world’s stage is already in top gear.
