Abraham Negasi was born in Adi Segdo, Eritrea and was raised in a loving family. At an early age he joined the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF) in search of freedom. That is also when he got the nick name Johnhoy due to his resemblance to the Ethiopian Emperor. As he would say “Jebha kilte 20 koyna” and he exiled to the Sudan like many of his peers. Thou now it is fashionable to grow your beard, Abraham was a head of his time in growing his and with that look he gained yet another nick name Keshi. From how he lived his life it is no surprise that Abraham would fight for freedom. Abraham was the millennial of his generation, in that he focused on staying happy and was the most gentle soul. He struggled with some health issues while living in Canada but I am sure he did not think this trip to the hospital would be the last. He held on for dear life on a ventilator for over three weeks but we hope he found solace in God as it is stated in Psalm 23.
King James Version
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
May your soul rest in peace our beloved brother.
See you on the other side where we hope to enjoy your beautiful laughter again.
