Osei Bonsu was born on September 15, 1944 in Offinso, Ghana in the Dentin area. He was born to Yaw Mensah and Susanna Amponsah. Osei was the oldest out of six children and was known to be a very educational and an intellectual man. After he finished high school, Osei was trained as a teacher at Wesley College in Kumasi, Ghana. Later on, he moved to the United States and became a citizen here. A few years after that, he joined the U.S. Army from January 20, 1978 to January 19, 1981. As years went by, after the military, Osei married Jean Bonsu up until 1999 and they gave birth to 1 son, Christopher Bonsu in 1988 and 1 daughter, Samantha Bonsu in 1992. Before Christopher and Samantha were born, he also raised a step daughter, Marsha Quarterman starting in 1987. He worked for Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida to provide for his family, until he retired. He has been very ill for a long time and God decided to call him home on March 31, 2022. As the family in Ghana say, “Barima Osei ! You have fought a good fight. You have finished your race. Fare thee well. May the good Lord keep you. Until we meet again. AMEN.”
