Mr. David Olubi Oladejah Jlay
November 20, 1967 – July 11, 2018

It is with profound sadness that the Jlay, Yanforh, Oladejah, Tarr, and Major families deeply regret announcing the home-going of their beloved Son, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, cousin, and friend. This sad event occurred on Tuesday, July 11, 2018 at the Catholic Hospital in Sinkor, Montserrado County.

Olu or Mukekeh as he was affectionately called, leaves to mourn his passing: his dearest mother Mrs. Eudora Yanforh Jlay; his loving wife Mrs. Felecia Oladejah Jlay; his three daughters – Daviette, Deddeh, and Beatrice; several grandchildren; siblings - Benetta Tarr, Claudius Major, Andrew Jlay, and several other brothers and sisters to name a few; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Mukeh was predeceased by his fathers: Mr. David Oladejah (before birth), and Mr. Benjamin Jlay; brother: Olympio Jlay; and Aunt: Beatrice Botoe.

Mukeh’s sudden death came as a shock to his family and friends both overseas and in Liberia.  He will certainly be deeply missed by all whose lives he touched.  May Mukeh’s soul rest in perfect peace in the loving arms of Jesus Christ.
