"Dear Bobby,

Only wish you could read this. I haven't recovered from the shock of the news of your passing. I can't imagine how your loved ones feel. God however knows all and certainly thought it best to let you go rest at that time.

"Bobosa" as you called me fondly is a pet name forever etched on my mind as it imprints permanently your lovely, mocking and smiling face on my brain's memory card.

I love you mate and I still miss you dearly.

Sweet Eternal Dreams"

"Not very interesting to know we shared the same birthday - you were a year younger; not very interesting to get in touch with you at death after about 26 years of not seeing or knowing about each other. We were childhood friends in Barnawa Kaduna with the likes of Armstrong Nebo (Where is he even?). Also not so interesting to learn this time that my father is (was) your godfather. Is there really anything that is interesting? May God keep your family. Your pics suggested you were a promising young man, husband and daddy. May God teach us at this time to number our days too that we may have the heart of wisdom."

"Bobby, it seems so surreal that you passed on, it came as a blow....a shock! because God knows we thought it was settled that you would walk out alive from that hospital.
There are no words, and though we know not the ways and thoughts of God, but that He chose to take you means you are in a better place. Truly, you are loved and would be sorely missed.
I tear as I type this, I tear when I think of Amanda growing not experiencing all those wonderful times she could have had with you...just watching her from above. I tear when I think of Otito, pain fills me up.
Truly, no one is promised tomorrow.
Sleep well, knowing that we prayed hard for you and are confident you rest in God' bosom. Sleep well, knowing that with prayers and love, your family will be well-cared for. Sleep well Bobby, for death lost its sting and joy fills our heart knowing those last moments were surrounded with angels all about you...cos we serve God that answers prayers.
Sleep on Bobby, rest in the Lord."

"Shocking news I say. A young man in his prime, an obviously wonderful husband and great father, snatched away a little too soon by death's cold hands. I didn't know you but everyone speaks well of you. Wish I'd known you were ill and joined in to raise a prayer cover for you. Wish... But I'm not Sovereign, God is. And God knows everything. I've known the loss of a father and it isn't the prettiest thing. BUT I've also known the Father's care. Praying the warmth of God's arms wrap you for eternity, and grant your family comfort, help, and peace for a lifetime.
Adieu Bobby Chukwu. Gaa ebe ezumike.

He Who sees the end from the beginning has gone ahead of you and prepared an even more beautiful future for you. Please take heart.

Our set girls from Fed owerri always prayed for such a kind and oh-so thotful man that gave our friend every single thing she wanted... Believe me u set a standard of what a hubby and daddy's responsibilities to his family ought to be. All those that came in contact with u always had such good things to say about u.

This tribute was added by Yetunde A on 8th August 2015

"This is really sad news and I'm beyond shocked.
Back in CDSSI, Bobby was one guy who showed an utmost level of good upbringing. Humble and meek; though I won't say we were friends, more like acquitances as we had a number of mutual friends. Even in teenage years when most people did things they ordinarily wouldn't do, just to get some stars on their shoulders and approval of peers, he wasn't one known to be involved in such. He always related with everyone with a lot of respect and as such you have no choice but to respect him. May God grant your family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this great loss. RIP Bobby!"

"Of all men I have come to know, you are a special one. I can't remember anyone else with such all encompassing qualities of humility, kindness, generosity, wisdom. All these, are attributes of a God fearing and well mannered man. You had it all. I path with this Yoruba song:

A' o pade, l'ese Jesu,
n'biti a'ko n'iyarawa.
A'orirawa, A' oyo Morawa,
Jesu ni yio se Alaga

Translation:

We will meet at the foot step of Jesus,
Where we meet never to path one another
We shall meet and we shall rejoice with one another
And Jesus will be the head"

"Seems like yesterday we used to walk from CDSS compounds to Main  Gate, Cantonment. Our little high school clique back then, "Issa" one of your several nicknames, always having one joke or funny story to share,  right up to the fews times we caught up in between after high school till now as Family Men. Always held you in high esteem because you were a stand up guy, telling it like you see it always with the utmost humility. Remember our frequent chats, comparing notes on fatherhood and talking about life in general. You're Great loss to our generation, you touched so many lives in your short time in this world. I'm utterly devastated that I will never see your face again or hear your voice. In all this pain one thing remains certain; the brilliant memories you've left us with will linger on in our heart and minds forever.  Love you and Miss you, MY BRETHREN."

"My brother and my friend people think you are gone, but little do they know you are very much around. For the lives you have touched directly or indirectly with your kind words and your funny smiles you will always be in our minds.2 things I can't forget 1. In 1996 / 1997 as commandos I came to you as one of my few valued friends for advice to criticise my very 1st bizness proposal to organise excursion for our school and after I spoke your response was " Polo e go work " and it was a success. A lot of ppl tot it was for the fun of it but you and few knew it was all about the BUSINESS. 2. In 2011 we met again in Abuja as tycoons and I told you about my business interests in your state ENUGU in spite of some challenges and your response also was " mehn you go make am" and am making it to the glory of God. Though sad I was in Enugu when I got the news of your departure to be with our lord. Just to tell those who think you are gone that a decision has been taken by my management to name a street in our estate in enugu after your wonderful self. I LOVE U BRO AND THE FAMILY YOU LEFT BEHIND CAN NEVER BE STRANDED IJN"

"What a guy, what a guy. When you are privileged to have known someone from such a good home that was so special, humble and loved like Bobby you get pumped up with pride. To Bobby's dad and mum and family you really did well by him and for that we his friends are forever grateful. Please stay strong, to lose someone like Bobby I know is just too much to bear. He was a pretty cool guy. I grew up with 5 older brothers but Bobby was like my 6th brother in so many ways I cannot even explain without going on forever..  So special to my heart.

Bobby!!! I can't believe you have left this world so soon... The memories from knowing you from like JSS3 at Command Secondary school Ikeja are still fresh in my mind. Chatting with you at my desk forever instead of studying!! and never losing touch with you all these years!!! We hung out so much after secondary school, throughout university in London to Luton, Acton Town, from Dopemu to Festac!!! We finally settled down with our partners but our friendship still remained strong and for that I am grateful for.. I can still remember the sparkle in your eyes and your words of worldly wisdom always!! Oh Bobby, I always thought we will see again, perhaps I would come to Abuja and us friends would hang out with all our kids and share stories of how we all knew each other from way back .. Alas, it is not meant to be but I pray I will meet your daughter and wife you left behind one day by God's grace and I will tell them stories about you from when you were a teenager!!... My friend, I will miss you so...  I cannot even express here how much I will miss you.."

This tribute was added by Joel Acha on 7th August 2015

"We're still coming to terms with this tragic news and what makes it more painful is that I had just met Bobby for the first time at the end of June when I stayed with Bobby & Otito for a couple of days whilst I was in Nigeria.

Previously, I had only spoken on a number of occasions over the phone with Bobby and I was very humbled and touched by how warmly I was welcomed into their residence in June.

We hope and pray that Otito and Mandy have the strength to get through this tragic, difficult and unthinkable situation as we continue our prayers for Bobby's soul, Otito and Mandy.

May your gentle, humble soul rest in peace..."

"I didn't know you personally, but Otito was "my classmate" in fggc Owerri.
I remember the day she shared that you had fallen ill and we should pray for you- I reached out to her privately and told her to break bread on your behalf, I did the same as often as I could- I broke bread and prayed to God to give you divine healing.

I was shattered when few weeks later I heard you had passed on.
Words fail me to express how the news left me feeling.
I could only imagine what my friend was going through.
Her lover and friend gone.

Your pictures show how much of a warm and loving person you must have been.
You will forever live on in our hearts."

But my consolation today is that I know where Bobby has gone. you have gone to be with the beautiful angels of the Lord whom you came in their image!yes Bobby you were an angel on a mission! I ve never seen you angry. you were so polite,full of smiles,full of integrity, full of life,always bubbling,you danced so beautifully, I can go on and on.when my husband visited Nigeria last Xmas and went to see uncle Isaac. The first thing I asked was did you see Bobby?he said no,I said ohhh you missed something. I ve never seen a guy so humble in my entire life .But is well my darling! Jee nke oma Nnam. okolobia nanee!

"Bobby, words elude me because of your sudden & untimely death. I can't bring myself to gaze at your pictures, knowing that you are no more. My heart breaks for your wife - my friend & sister Tito, my heart breaks for your beautiful daughter, Mandy. My heart breaks for your mum, dad, siblings, friends & host of relatives that loved you unconditionally, & never left your sick bed until you slept on that faithful day. One thing is sure, you are at peace, you are resting in Our Lord Jesus Christ's bossom, because you died in Him, & for this we have peace. Therefore we shall not mourn like those who do not have hope, rather we rejoice for there is the resurrection of the dead. Rest well Bobby Chucks, may the good Lord give Tito & all your loved ones the fortitude to bear this loss, amen."

"B as i fondly call you, your demise still remains a shock to me. I soaked my bed everyday waiting to hear you are back that it was all a joke but i have to wake up to reality. Tears roll down my cheeks like a rushing flood. The last time we talked you told me about how you wanted to achieve all you've planned for the year and asked if i've achieved mine. The laughter, tears and words of encouragement. You were more than a friend, you were a brother indeed.
You were jealously snatched from us by the cold hands of death. You were a life changer, a rear gem and a humble soul. You touched my life and that of others.
Death oh death why Bobby? Why are you so cruel, of all the people on earth you decided to snatch my B.
Nnam i need you to know that we all love you.
Na nke oma ezigbo mmadu!
Adeiu my man!

"when a child dies, a parent loses a part of himself , your death has taken a part of me as you grew up in my arms . Your time was so brief that it left  me your aunty speechless . If love could have saved you , you would have been alive and probably live forever , your death seems so wrong to the  entire family and to me in particular .The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said . We take solace in the Lord that you are  resting in his bosom . BOBBY REST IN PEACE"

"I am always saddened by the death of a good person. It is from this sadness that a feeling of gratitude emerges. I feel honored to have known them and blessed that their passing serves as a reminder to me that my time on this beautiful earth is limited and that I should seize the opportunity I have to forgive, share, explore, and love. I can think of no greater way to honor the deceased than to live this way. Bro bobby you are too good to die but what more can we say. R. I. P ezigbo mmadu...miss u like first class flight !!!"

He answered in His own way. You are at peace now Bobby, real peace. You will be missed by many. I thank God for the strength He has given to Otito. I thank God for Amanda. One look at her face and it's like one is staring at you. Ezigbo mmadu! Laru ofuma! See you on the other side."

"Do you know Bobby? Yes, I know him, he is my beloved nephew. Yes, he is my nephew. Our beautiful  beautiful Bobby, gentle, kind, unselfish, a man of simple words. When he was  born, he was the most beautiful baby of all, the dream of every mother. He was spotless. I carried him in my arms everyday, washed him, changed his napkins, fed him his custard, gave him his daily baths, dressed him up nicely and kept him comfortable.

Yes, I took care of him with love and joy, I was his baby sitter in those early years and I love him dearly. We watched him grow into a handsome gentleman, full of life and hope, and suddenly, suddenly,  he was snatched away from us.

Bobby, this is your auntie, Ginika. You fell asleep in the Lord without saying goodbye. No amount of words can express the hurt that I feel in my heart. If tears could build a stairway, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you back home. You were a gift for such a little while. Your loss just seems so wrong. We are saddened and broken hearted, our sorrow knows no end. You should not have left before us, but you know, God only takes the best. God knows best.

Bobby, the day that God called you home, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you. Nothing seems the same. We miss your beauty in every way. You will always stay in our hearts, to be loved and cherished forever.

May God bless you and keep you safely in his care. You will forever be treasured in our memories.

Bobby, we love you dearly, but God loves you most.
  
With a heart full of sorrow,  
Your auntie,  Ginika."

"As I scroll through down our chats with half a smile, emotions racing through my mind in an octane speed, hot tears rolling down my chick still with half a smile.
I saw it all, three plus weeks I saw the fighting spirit in your eyes to survive but God in his uncanny ways knows best.
Echezonna you were one of a kind. Impacted in all that you came across regardless of status each person having something positive to say about you. Your dad is still shocked with the out pour of love from family, friends and a whole bunch of strangers towards you.
The voice of men is the voice of God. God is always listening. Otito's consolation is that you made peace with your creator and I agree with her.
Chiamanda and Otito, we will surely stand by them.

Rest on brother in the bossom of your creator
We love you"

""Family is everything," that was your motto. Bobby, my cousin and big brother, you were so full of life and you loved your family dearly. You may have gone to be with the Lord but you will always be in our hearts because of all the beautiful memories we shared. We will cherish them forever.

We miss you so much and may heaven accept your soul. Thank you for blessing our family with your humility, kindness, laughter and most especially, with beautiful Chimamanda. You were the best one of us.

Rest well Bobby"
