”It is with a deep and heartfelt sense of loss, we announce the departure of our beloved son, brother, husband and father, Oluwadamilare Temitayo Adeboye. Who went to be with the Lord on the 4th of May, 2021.
His life was well lived as he served the Lord without reserve, giving effortlessly and leading fearlessly. He was crowned by the Lord with blessings of 3 seeds and a beautiful wife.
Though shaken, our anchor remains Jesus Christ in whom we have the assurance that we will one day meet in a place where there is no pain.
It is the wish of the family to be granted privacy at this moment and that prayers be offered on their behalf.
Oluwadamilare Temitayo Adeboye, June 9th 1978 – May 4th 2021.
Remain forever in our hearts.”
Pastor Dare would have turned 43 next month. On his 42nd birthday last year, his father, Pastor Adeboye celebrated him on social media where he described him as his first miracle child.
He wrote on his Facebook page,
“Our first miracle child. We pray that God will keep his miraculous working power in your life and all those who need a miracle today, will use you as a point of contact for their own in Jesus’ name. (Amen) love from Dad, Mom, and the whole Adeboye dynasty.”
Our condolences to the Adeboye family!
