His practice provided the coin- munity with general surgery serv- ices, including gall bladder, stom- ach, bowel and intestinal surgeries; skin cancer and recon- structive surgeries; laparoscopic surgeries; and plastic surgeries. He said reconstructive opera- tions were one of his favorite things to do. Though he enjoyed the chal- lenge of surgery, he said he con- tinued to "'nurture the general practice side." Omotunde was a native of Nigeria who became a U.S. citi- zen. He became interested in the medical field as a child when he witnessed the mystery of healing in a seriously ill younger brother, Joshua. His wile Ester wrote in the July 25, 2012 issue of the Press that "Living in a village with no electricity of running water, [Dr. Omotunde] studied at night us- ing an open flame. He studied hard and fulfilled his dream of becoming a medical doctor so he could save other people's lives as someone else had saved his brother's life. Sixty years after his brother was saved in a hospital far from his village, there still was no hos- pital in his hometowniwhere peo- ple were dying fi-Om easily treat- able illnesses such as diarrhea, malnutrition diabetes, hernias, and complications from child- birth. , it ., Ester said that thiS prompted their mission to build a hospital in that rural area of Nigeria. They started the organization Sustain- able Development for the Under- privileged Inc., to work toward that goal of improving the lives of lnany from one rural area to an- other, half a world away. They were able to bring a clinic to Ikun, a town of about 3,000. The clinic has 12 beds and standard operat- ing and x-ray rooms. Omotunde travelled the world but he made Park River his home. He said he was "fascinated and definitely impressed by the cor- diality of the people here." Omotunde had said that he felt the small town practice has a dif- ferent feel than a city practice. "There are real people m smaN towns, he said. "People are cour- teous, nicer." First Care Health Center Louise Dryburgh said that tbr everyone at First Care the loss of their colleague and friend is diffi- cult and saddening because he was more than just a surgeon or doctor, he was a kind, caring man. "He always wanted to talk about his faith and l:amily," Dry- burgh said remembering conver- sations with Omotunde adding that though he was a doctor, faith and family was always the bigger picture.
