With a heavy heart, we announce the death of Asfaw Bojer Gemeda on February 1, 2021 in Halifax, N.S., at the the ripe age of 57 years old. He was born in Ethiopia and was the son of Gameda Bojer.

Asfaw attended university in Ethiopia and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in science. After working in his field for a few years, he left his country of birth and went to live in Sudan for over 15 years. While in Sudan, he met his wife, Amleset Belay. After having their first child together, Asfaw and Amleset moved to Canada together with Asfaw’s three older children, Marine, Abel and Keya. They made Halifax their home. In Halifax he attended the Nova Scotia Community College to undertake a diploma program as a Pharmacy Technician. Asfaw is most remembered as a very dedicated and reliable taxi business operator, a career he worked at the longest here in Canada to support his family of six children.

He is survived by his wife Amleset Belay; daughters Marine and Keya; sons: Abel, Jonathan Gemeda (19); Geda Gemeda (17); Nahum Gemeda (15); Nathan Gemeda (14); Dana Gemeda (12) and Keelolee Gemeda (2). Asfaw is also survived by two siblings, and was predeceased by his parents.
