Obituary for James Akorli Mensah

In loving memory of husband, father, son, brother and friend, James Akorli Mensah, 49, of York, Pennsylvania, who passed away peacefully in his home on Thursday, September 26, 2019.

He was born on March 18, 1970 in Accra, Ghana. He would later relocate to the United States where he married the love of his life, Olympia Kullaya Mensah of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 2002, who survives him.

James is also survived by daughters Doreen Rumaya and Dyvora Yaa Mensah; son Dyllan Kwame Mensah; granddaughter Janelle Nana Ekua Ayeyei Mensah; mother Augustina Bomoah, brothers Kofi, Archie and George as well as a host of aunts, uncles, brother and sister-in-laws and dear friends.

He was predeceased in death by his father James Mensah and son Yao Mensah.

James was known for his selfless giving, which community members whom he drove in his taxi attested to daily. There was not one person who did not look forward to eating his delicious and generous cooking, and most notably he was the life of any party with his lively personality and explosive dance moves that immediately put a smile on anyone’s face. James was also a true man of God, whose faith never waivered during times of adversity. He was sincerely a pillar for his family going above and beyond in means that will be difficult to live without. James always spoke about his dream of becoming a millionaire so that he would make the lives of those he loved easier. He always envisioned traveling the world with his family, especially to Ghana and Tanzania. Unfortunately, these dreams were not realized but his spirit lives on through his family, as they strongly believe that God is always in control.

The family genuinely thanks all extended family and friends for their support in advance and insists that people make donations in support of his widow and growing children.

God bless James Mensah and may his genuine soul rest in perfect heavenly peace. May James’ spirit continue to guide and protect his wife and children, and may God guide all those his love touched.
