Early hours of Saturday, July 24th 2021,  Our beloved Awwal Adebayo Ladipo,  was brutally assaulted by a group of boys which led to his demise on Monday. July 26th, 2021. According to the Minnesota Medical examiner, he died due to blunt force head trauma sustained from the assault.

This is an unimaginable loss to the Ladipo family and all who loved him. No parent should ever have to witness the loss of a child and have video evidence of how he was intentionally attacked.

Awwal was a highly motivated high achiever! Graduated at the St. Cloud State University, majored in Liberal Arts of Science and attained a bachelor degree in Information Systems. He recently started a new IT role whilst helping to run the family business. He was a track and field athlete, basketball and soccer lover

Awwal was kind and considerate young man, part of a close knit loving family. His  parents Adebayo and Atinuke , wife Lisa,siblings, Tobi and Noah, aunty Bukky, several aunties, uncles, cousins ,nephews friends, colleagues are devastated by the loss of this respectful and well mannered youngman, who all his life was a role model to them. He encouraged his younger brother and sister to also participate in sporting passion like track and basketball. They are struggling to imagine life without their big brother Awwal!

While we don't understand why this happened, we do know that God is in control and he is near to the broken hearted. Even through the questions, the tears and heartache, we know that Awwal is with his Savior.

Till we meet to part no more, rest at the bosom of your maker, Awwal Adebayo Tolulope Ladipo. We love but God love you most.

Matthew 5:4, "blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted"
