Gifts & Memorial Donations

Komi “Denys” Kodjovi was born May 15, 1971 in Togo Africa.  He died on Friday August 5, 2022 after a battle with ALS.

On April 19, 2008, he married Kerri LeAnne Hoover in Nebraska.  Komi’s story is only 51 years long but his life and witness about the faithfulness of Jesus spans across the globe. Born in a mountain town in Togo West Africa, he was raised by his mother and grandmother. Komi’s father passed away when he was young.  Komi moved to the city and earned a master’s degree in Natural Science.  While studying he also became involved in a Christian Ministry for college-age students.   The ministry became a passion in his life and he led prayer meetings that have touched lives around the world.  In 2000, he moved to the United States living in New York, Utah, Nebraska and Kansas.   After various jobs, he became employed by Lowe’s serving with them for many years.  In 2007,  he met his wife Kerri.   They embarked on a life together living in the Kansas City area.

They were soon blessed with Zachary, Rebecca, Jean- Paul and David.   In 2019, the family moved to Hampstead North Carolina.   Besides his family and his Lord,   Komi had interests in world news, sports especially soccer and the outdoors.   Komi loved the beach.  He found great peace sitting at the water’s edge and thinking that his home was just on the other side of the water.

Today he dances with Jesus rejoicing and anticipating the arrival of his loved ones in Christ.

    He was one of my examples in the Lord since 1994. I have kept a good remembrance of him. May the Lord remember and reward his faithfulness and endurance in Him.

    As we say goodbye to a brother, a friend and fellow sojourner, we cannot not recall his influence . Denys embodied the life of the intercessor, the worshipper and the disciple maker . We were young and yet on fire for Christ . And where out of passion we butted head , we also rejoiced and supported each other in the challenges we faced in our Christian and student lives I remember Denys as a happy and yet very serious brother in Christ, concerned for the well-being of others. We will miss him! He is resting in Peace! And to Kerri and the children, we were blessed to have journeyed with him and he left us the best of himself in all of you! Be comforted and lifted anytime grief may try to overtake you and know that you can always reach out to any of us to cry together and laugh together!
