The veteran actor’s first child, Araba Botchwey, disclosed in an interview with Myjoyonline.com Wednesday morning that that her late dad had been battling kidney disease for some time now and was on dialysis when he passed away. He had been in and out of hospital for about two years and was rushed to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital Monday dawn where he passed away at 4pm that day.

The respected actor well-known for his catch phrase, “Sarah, my socks” and the television commercial for Key Soap had been off the television screens for some years now.
He is also known for his role in Grey Dawn (2015) and No Tears for Ananse (1968). The late Kofi Middleton Mends was a lecturer at the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) and the University of Ghana. He stopped lecturing about two years ago.

Araba Botchwey said one of her fond memories of her dad was his attention to the use of words and the English language. “Whenever he tells you bring that brown dictionary, then know that you have pronounced a word wrongly,” she recalled. Kofi Middleton Mends turned 77 in June this year and is survived by a wife and three children. He had five children but two had passed.
