Aloysius Lotsu Kwaku (or “Quarcoo”) Amenuvor of Edison, N.J., died Feb. 8, 2012, at Robert Wood Johnson Memorial Hospital in New Brunswick after a sudden illness. He was 67.
Known as Lotsu, he came to Princeton from Keta in the Volta region of Ghana. He had taught secondary school there before applying for admission through the African Scholarship Program of American Universities (ASPAU), which brought African students to U.S. college campuses during the 1960s and ’70s.
Lotsu lived in Foulke, dined at Wilson College, and earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. He was active in the Foreign Students Association and the Pan-African Students Association.
After graduate studies at the University of Michigan he worked at AT&T Bell Laborator-
ies. An expert in complex computer-systems testing, he then joined ITT Exelis Inc., where he was employed at the time of his death.
Lotsu is survived by his wife, Eyriam Fianenu Amenuvor; and his son Elikem Setor Amenuvor. To them, his extended family, and many friends and admirers in the United States and Ghana, the class offers sincere condolences.
