11th JANUARY 1975 – 14th DECEMBER 2013



Three years have gone and there is still an overwhelming despondency within our hearts. JT you accomplished the goal to live life in full just like the Apostle Paul whose goal in life was not only to start well but to finish well.


1 Corinthians 10:24 says

“No one should seek their own good, but the good of others”


JT you were a selfless man, always looking out for other people and this verse speaks directly about your character.


You were a compassionate person to your family and the community at large, always willing to lend a helping hand, a crying shoulder or a listening ear.


You gave altruistically upholding the words of Jesus Christ. This year we celebrate friendship and we celebrate You.


JT you are deeply loved and missed by your wife Mary Waitherero Tharuma and children Eliena-Rose Njambi Tharuma, Peter-Aaron Munga Tharuma and Elisha-Joyce Muthoni Tharuma; the entire Munga Family and Claudio Family.


Thank you for shairing your life with us, without you, we will not not the love of God for us for you are a blessing in our eyes.


Even as the sun sets and the rain falls down. God is indeed amazing!
