Ayodele spent his younger years living in Nigeria. He moved with his family to New Hampshire in 2005. He worked for the last 16 years at Easter Seals here in Manchester, serving children and adults with disabilities. A devoted Christian who found great comfort in his faith, he served lastly as a Pastor alongside his wife at Redeemed Christian Church of God: New Wine Solution Center in Concord. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family, stopping at no lengths to ensure they were always well taken care of. Anyone who knew him, was well aware of the endless love he had for his wife Wemimo who were widely known as the best of friends and eternal lovers. They bore the nickname "love" for one another. Ayodele is survived by his wife, Wemimo Fatukasi; his children, Seyi, Bukola, Femi and Kayode Fatukasi; his siblings, Ilesanmi, Toyin and Tope Fatukasi and Kehinde Jesutade; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
Son, Husband, Father and Friend, Ayodele Gabriel Ishola Fatukasi will be remembered as a man who loved wholeheartedly. His children always spoke highly of him, revering him anywhere they went. These words are evident by the high praise sung by anyone who had the opportunity of meeting or hearing of him. He gave freely, prayed continuously, and served unconditionally. He was a man like no other, loved by many in the community. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. We pray that his soul will rest peacefully and believe him to be at the bosom of our lord Jesus Christ.
