Dear Sheila and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember your father's great hospitality to me when I visited Kenya in 1994. Two memories stick out: first, your father burning his fingers as he tried to show me how you could hard boil an egg on a spoon in the geysers of the Rift Valley's lakes. Second, your father lingering (without a ticket) on the night bus to Mombasa until the moment it departed, in order to be certain that his daughter and her foreign friend would be safe. I enjoyed learning more about his life and his impressive legal career on this lovely website. What a tribute. I will be thinking of you and praying for your family on Friday.

I remember the first time I met you was when I got my first child George many years ago and you picked us from Nairobi Hospital and dropped us at my sister's home. I did not know you then as we left the country soon after for very many years. I only got to know you as my husband's brother in-law years later when we came back to Kenya.

At one time you were one of our IT students at Insight Computers when we trained DFCK staff and when I set up my own company you were among my first clients. You came with Sheila to purchase computer systems for your new office. Thank you for that.

At a personal level I found you to be a loving husband and father who gave his children the best education a parent can give here in Kenya and overseas and fully participated in their learning. Indeed you sacrificed a lot for your children's education.

You were also great company to your family. At one time when we visited your home you showed us a tree house you had "built" for your little girl Joy where she used to spend the day.

Though I met you only a few times, through my friendship with Sheila and Robert, I was always struck by your gentleness and kindness to me every time we met.
May you rest in peace eternally.

Dear Joy and family. I have such fond memories of your dad throughout my childhood. Your family was like a second family to me. I will never forget those car-rides with your dad to school and him taking us swimming. I will not forget his hearty laugh and big smile, always welcoming me when I was at your house. We will really miss him. Sending you all much love and condolences from the Awori family.

Sheila and the entire Kamunyori family, poleni sana. May God grant you peace during this challenging time and we pray mzee rests in eternal peace. I never had the honor of meeting mzee however, since I work with Sheila I have seen who he is through her; a wonderful, polite, respectful, kind friend and colleague. Rest knowing that your name is very well represented.

Our earliest memory of Uncle John was when the family moved to Tigoni. Dad was happy to have his cousin and friend live close by. We spent time with them and shared happy times together including watching Uncle play squash. He was the first person we knew who played the sport. Over the years we have met on and off, and Uncle was always full of smiles whenever we met and eager to catch up on where we now were in life. It also always pleased him to tell us apart and get our names right🤗. We would like to express our sincere condolences to Auntie Josephine, Sheila, Robert and Joy.
May God rest Uncle's soul in peace🙏🏾

Mr. John was a true fighter and such a jovial man. My colleagues and I will remember him for how happy yet stern he sometimes was. My condolences to Mrs. Kamunyori, Robert and the entire family. He'll always be in our hearts. May he rest in peace.
