The world suffered a profound loss on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, when Papa Ndyoe passed away in an automobile accident. Papa was the proud, devoted father of four children, Khady Louise laye, 17; Mariama, 11; Papa, 7 and Maimouna, 3, and a dedicated husband to his wife, Fama Diop for almost two decades. Papa never wanted his wife to work. He wanted to take care of her and his kids. He always went out of his way for them and would drive anywhere to get whatever they needed. He had the biggest heart and was full of love and happiness. His loss will leave an unimaginable void in their lives.
Papa was a respected and talented Program Director at Amego, Inc. for over eight years, overseeing multiple residential locations that support clients with autism and other intellectual disabilities. Papa’s commitment to the people he served and his staff epitomized the spirit of Amego. He was one of Amego’s unsung heroes. He worked countless hours, rolled up his sleeves and lent a hand wherever he was needed and provided a strong and comforting on-site presence. In his years at Amego, he impacted many lives.
Papa relocated to the United States from Africa many years ago. It is the family's wish that he return to his native homeland for his final journey. All proceeds will go towards the financial well-being of his young children and ensuring his final trip home.
