Mr J K Mogaswa was laid to rest today. He was a friend, a brother and a soldier in the army of the Lord. A servant leader to his brethren and his community. Fondly referred to as Bro Jake or Bro Cee by his peers.
Born in Leeuwfontein, a farming settlement adjacent to the township of Mamelodi, east of Pretoria, Mogaswa was the fourth child of Pitika and Poppie, who were blessed with nine children.
He married Ella nee Mthobeni in 1972, and they were blessed with three children.
In 1991 he left formal employment to join the public transport business. While operating his taxi, he specialised in two focus areas; School-transportation and ‘Pick&Pay staff special’. He served both with excellence and diligence, and in return, he was showered with lots of love and appreciation from his passengers; earning him the nickname –‘Daddy’, indeed he was Daddy to all.
He had been a staunch and committed member of the United Apostolic Faith Church (UAFC), which shared the good news of Jesus in Mamelodi and other parts of the country for all these years.
He left this earth on 18 October 2019 at the age of 71, and he is survived by his children, two remaining siblings, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews and nieces.
