Kwame A. Gyamfi

February 24, 1979October 19, 2020

Kwame Adu Gyamfi, also known as Paa Kwame, 41, of Manchester, NJ, passed away on Monday October 19, 2020, at his home. Born in Kumasi, Ghana, he graduated from T.I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School. He immigrated to the United States in 2005. Kwame lived in Manchester for the past 15 years, amidst his loving family. He enjoyed cooking, dressing well and dancing. Kwame loved to travel around the world experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. Anyone who met Kwame could instantly see that he had a special gift for communicating with people and had a personality that was larger than life! Kwame lived life on his own accord. Anyone who knew him well knew that he had his own philosophical convictions and could not be easily influenced by the whims of others. He had an infectious and positive aura about him. It didn’t matter if you were a long-time friend, family member, or a stranger, he would treat you with the utmost hospitality and respect. He was the true embodiment of “Akwaaba,” a Twi term meaning “welcome”. As we remember our dear Kwame, let us remember how he lived, unabashedly, by his own principles and had a genuinely warm, generous outlook on life.

Kwame is survived by his mother Comfort Brefo, father Daniel Kuma, brother Peter Kuma and sister-in- law Alberta Obeng and sisters Oprah Kumah and Ama Kuma, daughter Maame Pomaah Gyamfi, niece Pomaah Kuma and nephews Daniel and Israel Kuma, uncles and aunts - Joe, Samuel, Helena, Mercy, Emmanuel, Agnes, Clifford and Seth, as well as many cousins and friends.

The family asks for your prayers as we celebrate the life of our beloved son, brother, nephew and friend.

Kwame I am very sorry that you have to disappear too soon. Our last together was in New York when sister Adebie and yourself picked me up and took me to New Jersey. I remember we engaged in serious conversation and enjoyed spiritual things. May the good Lord hide you in his bosom and give you rest. Blessings from Isaac.

Oh Paa, losing you has caused us so much pain and heartache. Words can't express the sadness that we feel. You are so unique, one of a kind. You are so outgoing, like a star you would light up any room. I will never forget the strong bond that we shared during your early childhood. When i first set my eyes on you when you were born , I couldnt help but fall in love. You were such a handsome and lively little boy. Im grateful for all the time we had together. It will be in my heart and mind forever. And I know that we have the hope of seeing you again. This is a promise that Jehovah God has made in his word in John 5:28,29 that we have the hope that one day he will bring you back to life. And we know that this promise will come true because not only does he have the power, but he also has the desire. Until that day, we will continue to share the best memories that we have of you. We love you!

Pee Kay as I always call you, though we never had enough time to know ourselves well but you were somebody who never gives up in life. I remember very well when you always try to persuade one of my sister's to be your girlfriend. You always put a smile on the face of anyone who comes close to you. Rest well my brother.
Safe journey bro.
We'll meet again in God's own time.
Dayie bro.
