I have known TB as we affectionately call him for over 50 years. We met through the work of Scripture Union the mid-1960s. Over the years we became both Christian brothers and close friends. We bought land together in East Legon and he graciously paid my land rates as I was out of Ghana. We became closer when I became Traveling Secretary in East Africa for PAFES (later called FOCUS) and he was Traveling Secretary in Ghana. We both married Medical doctors. When I first brought my Kenyan wife to Ghana, TB and Virginia hosted us like family. Three attributes characterized TB: He was a gentleman’s gentleman – – he demonstrated Christian Faith in practice, was kind, loving, caring and rejected any form of bitterness. Secondly, he was loyal and supportive of all his close friends. He was somebody you could always trust. Thirdly, he was a “Giant of the Faith” to non-believers in our country. He led many in Ghana to Christ. He made a significant impact on Ghana NOT based on material things but on Christianity in the country. Ghana and Africa will miss this kind follower of Christ. To TB, I say you have fought the good fight, kept the faith, enter the rest of Christ to receive the prize awaiting you like Paul. REST IN PEACE. To Virginia, I send my condolences and say we are available to support you, don’t hesitate to reach out. And to Ama, Akos, Kwadwo, and Kwaku, I say your dad has completed his work for Christ. In your pain remember all the good that he has done. May this console you.
