Emmanuel Brefo Donkor

Senior E.B.



Emmanuel Brefo Donkor was born on Sunday, the 16th day of October 1977 to Mr. E. B. Donkor from Wioso near Banco in the Sekyere Kumawu District of the Ashanti Region, and Madam Mary Nkrumah from Mampong in the Sekyere Central District of the Ashanti Region, both of blessed memory. He was affectionately named after his father, and fondly called E.B. by all who knew him well. E.B. attended secondary school at Prempeh College and attained his “O-level” certificate in 1994 and “A-level” in 1996 respectively. He was adored by his classmates. From there, he entered the University of Cape Coast (UCC) in 1998 but due to health challenges, he was forced to put a hold on his education indefinitely. Two years later (in the year 2000), E.B. enrolled at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to once again work towards his goal of earning a degree. He attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Planning, graduating in 2006 (two years later than scheduled). Again, E.B. had to take a two-year break in the course of his bachelor’s studies due to the same health challenges he experienced at UCC. After National Service in 2007, E.B. worked with his father at the Krofrom Total Filling Station in Kumasi. He stepped into the “larger than life” shoes of his father to manage the station after his father became incapacitated due to illness, a role he fulfilled faithfully and diligently for ten years, until October 2017 when he was transferred to the Suame Total Filling Station to implement reforms. In 2022, he received his first corporate appointment with Oil Space Company as a regional head, his professional station at the time of death. The Church had a special place in EB’s heart. He had been a member of the Calvary Charismatic Centre (Ayigya Branch) since 1997. He fellowshipped at the Kumasi City Mall (KCM) Branch of CCC and in July 2020, was nominated to serve on the church council. It was at Church where he met the love of his life, Dorcas in 2008, eventually tying the knot with her in 2013. There, he exemplified the meaning of service and humility to his two little children, Nana Ama (8), and Praise (6), and there he would serve with passion and commitment at the end of his days. E.B. passed away on Saturday, April 8th, 2023 at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi due to extended complications resulting from the same health challenges that had so tormented him since early adulthood. Like the thorn in Paul’s flesh in the scriptures, E.B. pleaded with the lord to alleviate him from his predicament, and yet, the almighty in his wisdom responded, as unto Paul “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”. What shall we do then, but like Job, give thanks to the lord. Thanks for the gift of E.B.’s life and the precious moments we got to spend with an angel here on Earth. Thanks that he is now home, free from all earthly shackles at the feet of the Father. The story of E.B.’s life was one of relentless persistence. “Give Up” was not in his dictionary. “Stay Down” was never an option. What E.B. set his mind to, E.B. did. And in spite of all the Fight, Charisma, and Determination brewing down under, on the surface, he always appeared cool, calm, and collected. A Gentleman’s, Gentleman. That was E.B. Donkor. May his soul rest in peace.
