Prof. Plange-Rhule taught me physiology in pre-med in the School of Medical Sciences (KNUST). It was a difficult subject for me but through his dedication to teaching, I passed it (to my relief). I encountered Prof. Plange-Rhule again in my clinical years and during housemanship in Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
It was always a delight whenever I met Prof. at functions and he called me by my first name. It made me feel really honoured. He was always kind, cool and collected; and humble as well, despite his numerous achievements. My last encounter with Prof was about two months ago at a social gathering and he offered me a drink, which was really thoughtful of him. He teased me and complimented my dancing.
The announcement of his death was devastating news. He was one of the people I truly respected and I know that he will be missed by all who knew him. Damirifa due Prof.
