The cold hands of death once again stuck our SOBA America family on December 18th, 2020 when SOBAN Dr. Godfrey Fondinka was called home by the Lord. Dr. Fondinka, SOBAN number 2155 of the 1971 class died in Fayetteville, NC of complications from COVID-19. He leaves behind his dear wife Dr. Florence, four kids – Tuma(22), Ghinna (20), Babila (15), and Kahmali (12), many family, friends, and patients to mourn him.
As a family practice physician running an urgent care practice, Dr. Fondinka was at the frontlines treating COVID-19 patients. He fought a brave fight, but in the end lost his battle against COVID-19.
Dr. Fondinka was a registered member of SOBA America and SOBA Carolinas chapter. Our prayers go to his family during this difficult time. We also condone with the class of 1971 and SOBA Carolinas who lost one of their own. As a registered member of SOBA America, our fallen brother shall be honored with our official SOBA America Final Farewell protocol at his funeral. Details of his funeral plans shall be provided in due course.
May his gentle soul rest in peace with the Lord.
