Since hearing about the death of Max Assimeng, I have been striving to compose a remembrance to my first professor, because I must confess, I just don't have the verbal skill to articulate the profundity of my sadness. To think that Max Assimeng is gone to the other world is a huge blow to me and I feel that, like me, his numerous students and teaching colleagues, present and past, on hearing about his death will feel the country Ghana, the University of Ghana, and the Sociology Department have all lost an erudite sociologists. As was captured by Kofi Asante, a doctoral student at North Western University in the United States of America, on his Facebook page, the death of Prof. Assimeng 'is a loss to the sociology department at Legon, as well as professional sociology in Ghana'. So sad, Kofi, that it was through your Facebook comment that I first learnt about the passing of Prof. He was an accomplished sociologist!
