It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of long time WIBCA member, Mr. Peter Nwafor, on Saturday, March 26th, 2022. WIBCA wishes to express our deepest sympathies to his family.
Message on behalf of WIBCA’s Education Committee:
“What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us “ Helen Keller.
It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of our dear friend.
Peter has been a member of WIBCA for many years and during his tenure his focus has been the Education Committee. He advocated for our youth as he demonstrated that to achieve excellence one must be determined, committed, know you’re valued, and always do your best. Peter loved children and he showed that love in the way he spoke of his own children and grandchildren.
He was present on Saturdays to assist WIBCA’s students and recruiting volunteer tutors. He gave selflessly of his time and resources including through photography, and through his desire to record the history of WIBCA. Peter was a man of high integrity and lived his values. He strived to ensure the WIBCA Scholarship Program well represented the organization and was of the highest standard. Peter loved life. He liked to play his music and dance. He taught us what it means to love unconditionally.
Our hearts are aching as we will miss his presence, but his love for his family, community, and education will remain with us forever. We will hold on to our precious memories, grieve our loss, but are grateful that we had him in our lives.
Rest in God’s grace, dear Peter, as you will remain in our hearts forever.
