      Barack Hussein Obama, Sr
      Birth: Apr. 4, 1936, Nairobi, Kenya
      Death: Nov. 24, 1982, Nairobi, Kenya

      Economist/Father of US President Barack H. Obama. He was born in Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya and came to the United States to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa. There he met fellow student Ann Dunham. The two would be married in 1960 and would have one child, Barack Obama Jr., born Aug. 4, 1961. The two separated when their son was two years old and later divorced. He went on to Harvard University to pursue Ph.D. studies and returned to Kenya where he worked for a U.S. oil company. He later went to work for the Kenyan Ministry of Finance as a senior economist. But, through a mix of conflicts between the ruling tribes and his own outspoken nature and drinking, he fell from power for a long period during the late 1960s and '70s. He died in a car accident in Nairobi in 1982 and is buried in customary Luo tradition on the family farm in Kogelo, Kenya near his father, Hussein Onyango Obama.
