|Let the memory of Sir P.C be with us forever.|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our dearly beloved Dad, Sir Patrick Chizoba Omabu, aged 73, born on March 17, 1939 and passed away on the feast of All Saints, November 1, 2012. We will remember him now and always.
"SIR P. C. OMABU,
MAY YOUR GENTLE, KIND AND PEACEFUL SOUL REST IN PEACE.
THIS NOVEMBER, IN A SPECIAL WAY, MAY THE LIGHT YOU STARTED UNDER GOD'S GAZE LIGHT THE DARK FOR SO MANY TROUBLED HEARTS.."
"He was indeed great in every manner; great in faith, vision, wisdom, charity, simplicity and dedication. He was ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of peace. His golden rule was;"There is no amount of sacrifice that is too much for peaceful co-existence". Another, "where there is peace, there is always 'onye nzuzu' " He had no problem taking the place of the 'onye nzuzu'. The times I spent with him were moments of learning and understanding deeply the eternal truths. He shared with me, how he bought a land three times from one family. To many, it is a mark of stupidity, but to him, a sacrifice, necessary for peace. No wonder Jesus, announced the blessedness of peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Sir P.C Omabu lives in the hearts of many, because he nurtured many giants. I pray in a special way today and always for his peaceful repose."
"Continue to watch over your children daddy with the rest of the saints."
"The days are still very much troubled ,still praying for a miracle and wishing you were here. Miss you Dad."
"I had the great pleasure to know and work together with Mr. Patrick Omabu long time ago, but his memories remain with us as a trustable, honourable man and excellent person.
Our company RAYT is based in Barcelona, Spain, and we had the chance to share with him some days during his business visits to us.
May he rest in peace and all this family and friends remain honoured for having the chance of sharing life with him."
"Last March 17, Sir PC would have been 77 years. Anyway, he has celebrated that with the angels! Many, many congratulations Sir."
"Our very own dear Sir PC! May your gentle and lovely soul continue to rest in the bosom of your God and our God until we all meet again never to part!"
"A gentleman to the core, Sir PC Omabu....... I know he is resting in the Lord's bosom.May eternal rest be granted to him and his good deeds never be forgotten."
"Today and always may loving memories of Patrick Omabu bring peace,comfort and strength"
"Uncle Omabu was always so kind, so generous, so willing to assist everyone around him. I am so thankful to have known him in my life, I feel really blessed for the part God led him to play in our lives. For his courageousness, wisdom, integrity I bless and thank our dear Lord. I am confident that he is resting in our Lord's bosom where he belongs.
Adieu papa, till me meet again."
"Time may pass and fade away, but memories of you will always stay."
"Thinking of you and sending a very special prayer; that God will bless you, keep you safe and tend you with great care. You were such a special Dad in every single way. Continue to rest in the Lord's bosom."
"Sir P.C., a knight in word, deed and thought; you had a trully noble spirit and certainly was never satisfied with half measures. You loved God and lived in Him; you even had a special day to seek Him out in the poor and needy. An eye for details and a deep thinker. I believe God wanted to bear witness to your love for Him and His ways by calling you to Himself on All Saints day. May your kind and caring soul rest in perfect peace. Pray for us."
"Daddy continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord; Amen. Adieu"
"Daddy continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord; Amen. Adieu"
""To live in the hearts of those who love you is not to die."
We miss you,great man that you were! Forever in our hearts!"
"Sir Omabu was a man of integrity. He touched so many lives and mine. The day I will never forget was my wedding day. My dad passed in 1994 and each time I went for a wedding I always had tears in my eyes when I see dad's walk their daughters down the aisle.. I knew I was never going to have that experience and begged GOD to help me walk down the aisle on my own day without crying. The day came and I was informed that my handsome kid brother was going to play that role. I waited outside the church and no one could find him and from nowhere ......literally from nowhere someone touched my elbow and it was Sir Patrick Omabu. He did not even give me the chance to say good morning all he said was "are you ready" I nodded and he walked me to my husband and I heard him clearly telling him to "please take care of her". Just exactly what my dad would have said. He filled a big hole in my heart on that special day and I am forever thankful. Continue to rest in peace my great uncle."
"You were genuinely a man of the people, a man loved by the people and surely a man of God. Though our paths never crossed, ur deeds spoke volume of your kind. May Gods perpetual light remain shining upon you...You fought a good fight and you will receive your crown. RIP Sir!"
"I think of you so much these troubled days and I keep wishing for a miracle."
"I first met Patrick C. Omabu in 1990. That was when I went to do my industrial attachment at the Africana book publishing company where at that time he was the chairman and managing director. He used to fondly call me MAO. He was humble, humane and highly intelligent. May god rest his soul in peace."
"Happy Birthday Dad. Still miss you so much."
"Yes, he was a giant in all ramifications but he lived a saintly life of humility. He was all things to all men; detached, friendly, unassuming and always ready to go extra miles with everybody. He was succour to the poor, companion to the sick, example to the rich and pillar to the Church. Many lived because he came and for this he lives…."
"Continue to rest in His bossom daddy. And may you continue to watch over your children with the angels as new memories are made today."
"Just like yesterday, you left this wicked world. U have left some marks on the sands of time. Your family misses you, the church needs you back, the community wishes you could be reincarnated ASAP but one thing keeps coming to my mind and that is, may be God needs you more now and that could be the reason you left. ...greatly remembered by us sir. May your legacies live. ."
What a glorious celebration as we mark the birthday of Our Patriarch Sir PC Omabu,, my prayer is that the good Lord shall continue to shower his perpetual light on your great soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God.. Amen!!!
Happy Birthday Celebration With Thy Saints In Heaven, We Love You but God Love you most.
Requiescat In Domino Pace!!"
"I think of you in silence, I often speak your name But all i have are memories And your picture in a frame. You are a great man, a disciplined general, a faithful father, A dependable mentor and my BOSS. Few years working in your film was a great experience and impact you made to my life.
You live an existence that’s elevated in nature
I love you Sir"
"My first encounter with Sir Patrick Omabu was at a dinner organized by ANSA (Association of Nimo Seminarians and Aspirants) as a send forth for then Mr (now Rev Fr Dr) Fabian Ndubueze Mmagu. Sir Omabu made an impression on me with his humility and the talk he gave that night "Things for which posterity will remember us". He lived the words he spoke that night with profound humility."
"Sir PC, because you loved humanity, because you loved simplicity & humility, because you loved generosity, because you loved God, because you were a family man, because you loved entrepreneurship, because you conquered, because you believed in God & resurrection. PC, it is & combination of reasons why we LOVE you back. Rest till we meet again. Adieu Dike!"
"You were indeed an iconic saint for the exemplary life you lived on earth.God called you back to him on the feast of all saints. You will be missed and remembered always on this saintly day. May you and all the other saints in heaven intercede for us. Adieu Sir knight!!!!!!!"
"Sir P.C Omabu, a man whom you can learn so much from within a twinkle of an eye.... A true defender of the church. Generations yet unborn will gain from his contributions to mankind. Continue to rest in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!"
"I only knew Patrick Omabu for the last 15 months of his life, during the illness which brought him to my parish church in Glasgow. I found him to be the most humble gentleman I have ever met. I feel honoured that I was able to take the Eucharist to him almost daily during those last few weeks. He accepted his illness with dignity and great love for Mary Rose and his beloved children."
"Indeed a rare gem Sir PC left us. You are gone but memories of u remain same. Continue to rest in peace the great man."
"The value of man is not known, until his absent is felt.. Sir P.C Omabu's Humility and Kindness is a NOVEL which everyone will like to read.

Omabu and those of all faithful departed rest in perfect peace, AMEN"."
".....And he matched on with All the Saints, to heaven. His legacy lives on.....You will always be remembered Sir. Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord."
"For the times we lived. For the moments we shared. For the influences we had. For the witnesses we testified. The reward is one and the same, ETERNITY. That's what Dad has gotten. May his gentle soul rest in peace. Amen!
Fr Gerald Nwafor."

"Sir Patrick Omabu lived a fulfilled life as a Church militant and died in the hour connecting the earthly celebration of the Church triumphants and the Church sufferings
may he rest in the blossom of the saints in light
"Uncle, i know you are with the lord in His kingdom. Those conditions of entering in His kingdom in Mat.5: 1-12, you met them. As we mark one year of your joining the Angels of God, we pray for you. Also we ask you to present our case before the lord. Keep resting in the kingdom of the lord. Ameeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen"

We'll forever miss you but we take warm solace in the fact that you live on. To the children, may the good Lord please comfort you continually in Jesus' name. Amen!"
"My everly smiling Uncle, you had this calmness about you that only few humans possess. May your gentle soul continue to rest in the hands of the Lord. Amen."
"Although I knew you for what seems like a minute, reading your autobiography brought me a lot closer to you. You have lived a life worthy of a saint, and you can be rest assured that your legacy is carried on by your children...to the extent that while reading some of the things you wrote it felt like I was reading about Chisom.
Rest in peace daddy and pray for us still here on earth"

P.C Omabu's children."
