Ambassador K. B Asante was a staunch and proud Anglican who passed away peacefully on January 22, 2018. Below are some eulogies of a cross section of members of the Anglican Communion who have had some working relations with the man K. B Asante.
The Rt. Rev’d Dr. Daniel S. M. Torto -Anglican Bishop of Accra “There I Heard a voice from the heaven say “Write: blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’ “yes” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labour, for their deeds will follow them” (Rev.14: 13)
H.E. K. B. Asante’s good works will follow him even to the grave. I received the news of his passing with a great shock. It is a big blow to me and the entire Diocese. We have lost a great gem, a personality that cannot be replaced easily. Honorable K. B. Asante was our source of reference when it comes to international and policies look politics, national issues and issues that would require the input of the Diocese.
His contributions to the Diocese cannot be under estimated. At synod level he offered his all, ideas, resources, and time. For more than three decades he offered dedicated service to Accra Diocese and his parish (All Saints Anglican Church, Adabraka).
Even though he was older than all of us, he showed all the priests with great respect and dignity. He served on various board, committees and commissions within the Diocese.
K. B. Asante was very punctual to all programmes and was a proud Anglican. Indeed, a big vacuum has been created and we will miss this gentleman. My prayers go to the widow, Mrs. Matilda Asante, Children and all relatives. May he rest in peace.
The Most Rev’d Dr. Robert Okine (Archbishop Emeritus) The passing of Opanin K.B. Asante has routed Ghana of a gem and totally committed citizen. The Anglican Church in particular is poorer for his departure. My deepest condolences and prayers are extended to his widow, Obaapayin Asante, Children and entire Abusua. May his soul rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen.
