Obituary of Oluwafunmilayo Adeogo Afelumo

Oluwafunmilayo (Funmi) Adeogo Fehintoluwa Afelumo was 33 years old when he died peacefully on Thursday, April 16, 2020, surrounded by the love and support of his family and friends. He passed at his home in Syracuse after a courageous and inspirational battle with cancer. Funmi was born in Lagos, Nigeria. He graduated from ESF in 2015 with a master’s degree in Plant Science and Biotechnology, and worked as a toxicologist at Toxicology Consultants and Assessments Specialist LLC at the time of his passing. Funmi was full of life, love, passion, empathy and a desire for adventure - traits he blessed his coworkers, friends and families with daily. He loved expanding his mind and knowledge through books and interactions with those around him. Some of his passions were writing, plant life, the environment, sea turtles in particular, getaways with friends and family and serving as a deacon at Plymouth Congregational Church. He was a very hardworking, driven and committed person, who still found time to be empathetic and connect with everyone around him in a remarkably special and genuine way that only he knew how to do. Funmi is survived by his parents, his two brothers and his niece and nephews whom he loved very much.
