"Today would have been your 55th birthday, the absence of your cheerful presence leaves a deep hole in our hearts. Death would assume that it has dealt a great blow to us, not doubt it has.
Dee Ogbo, death can only take you away but cannot erase your good memories from our hearts. We are convinced that you are eternally celebrating this day with the Angels in God's paradise.

Fare thee well Sir!"

"Dearly beloved, Mr. Victor!

Whilst you have vanished to the world of immortality, the memories of you are still evergreen in our hearts. Howbeit, we lost you when we needed you most, we discern that you are resting with the Lord.

You possessed no less than any man would have asked for in a brother. Your leadership prowess is  second to none, little wonder you rose with such an unprecedented speed and enviable height in the the banking sector.

Though we are woebegone, we still emblazon the epoch of Abia state and the entire humanity, when God opened the windows of heaven and brought you as a child.  You were able to effect lives with your midas touch even within the sawed - off years you lived on earth.

May God perdure to bless this day you were born and the people you left behind.


Mr. Obinna Oriaku
Commissioner for Finance, Abia State."

"This weekend, I bade farewell to one of the greatest men I was privileged to know...he was My Boss, My Mentor, My Friend...

You were firm, yet fair;
Intelligent, Articulate, An Uncanny eye for details, yet always seeking to impart knowledge;
Elevated by your achievements on the job; yet you embraced all...irrespective of level.

Passionate about all you did;
You pushed, prodded, moulded;
Never harsh but didn't brook mediocrity;
You truly inspired!

Always has a listening ear & sound advice for my challenges...on and off the job;
Fought alongside for time off when my health presented challenges;
My husband also quickly became your friend...that's how much your qualities endeared!

Sir Vic!
Rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus as we ask God Almighty to console & strengthen your family and loved ones as they grieve over this loss

You will be forever missed..."

"Sometimes in life we would want to wish things away, as though the never happened. It still remains a shock and hard for me to believe its true that you are gone. You were a source of encouragement to me when i lost my dearest husband - Emeka Okere. Why does God allow certain things to happen? I haven't found the answer yet but i believe His thoughts towards us are of good to bring us to an expected end. I want to say thank you for your help and encouragement through my tough times. I pray God comforts your family in Jesus Name. RIP"

Honestly my memories of meeting him and sharing the wonderful personality of dee Dr Mc Ezewnoko's wonderful family including my friend Rex is much enriched. He presented a high quality personality. As we live by the day under a strong argument that we are in this planet in transit, I am wishing my good friend an eternal farewell"

Our lives and careers were significantly impacted by you. Your simplicity, humility...yet with height, great intelligence and unique personality - are qualities we rarely see..

                    MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE.
We all stood perplexed, bemused and/or puzzled upon the public pronouncement of Mr Victor Ezenwoko's final odyssey. Till date, it is hard to believe that Dee Ogboo is completely missing in this planet. Words are not enough to describe a man whose legacies and contributions in life will remain unprecedented even in decades to come.

While we beseech our Heavenly Father to welcome his soul, we also entreat his family members to take solace in God's promise: that we all shall meet again on the resurrection morning. Rest in peace Sir!

Please, do accept our deepest condolences.

Barr Ugochukwu Amaraizu."

"Resting where no shadows fall.
In memory's garden we meet every day.
Together for ever.
Reunited, free from pain.
Jesus called a little child unto him.
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee
Earth has one gentle soul less,
And Heaven one angel more.
Deep in our hearts a memory is kept,
Of one we loved and shall never forget.
God will link the broken chain,
As one by one we meet again.
In our hearts he will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.
Their life a beautiful memory,
Their absence a silent grief.
God bless you and keep you in His care,
Until we meet again."

"Dee Ogboo, I am bereft of words, I don't know what to write, how to write or where to start. But I remember the last time we spoke on the phone, u told me that we had something to discuss but in place of that discussion, I am now writing this epitaph.  This infact has left some lacunae in my life. My consolation is that u lived a religious life, restraining urself from being corrupted by the world.  One thing I know is that because u lived a good life,u died in Christ, no calamity shall hurt you,  u shall find peace and rest in death.  Adieu Dee Ogboo, sleep well chairman."

"Dee Ogboo,ur death has left an unbearable heaviness in our hearts. Everyday I weep silently.  U were a gud man, u had a great heart and u were a peace loving person. U left a mark. They said we cannot question God and so at times like this,all we can say is :IT'S WELL. We surely miss u but we know u've gone to a better place. REST IN PEACE DEE OGBOO."

"To My great in-law, this is my tribute.
You were a simple man and a great thinker as well, You were an inventor, and above all, a responsible father to many.
I know your life on earth was not an easy one, but you failed not to give favour to people around you. If death is what one can exchange with philanthropic acts, you would have lived forever. However, a life well spent with a charitable heart is better than living forever without creating impacts in people's life.
Nevertheless, many of your most wonderful traits are now part of your family. I pray that God may give us the courage to bear the big loss of a rare gem like you.
Adieu....... Rest in Peace

Chike Imo"

"MY FRIEND MY MENTOR. Dee ogboo,the initial news of your death was like a dream to me. A dream I so desperately wanted to wake up from. A pillar is lost; A pillar to many who ran to you in times of all types of needs. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints " (Psalm 116:15). Your death is precious in His sight. It may not look like it, we may not feel so, but that is what it is. You worked while it was day. You redeemed your time. You laboured deligently,passionately,tirelessly and impacted lives. Your night has come and you have entered your rest. I never thought of saying goodbye at this time. Good night my mentor. Mr Ugorji Chisom Peter"

"Dear Uncle,

   Its been almost 2 months since your departure but my heart still bleeds as though you left us yesterday.I came here several times to leave a tribute but my thoughts and emotions keep running all over the place.Even now writing this, I still find it so hard to keep the tears from flowing.To say you are an ENIGMA is the least way I can qualify you.Yes, I say ' ARE' because your spirit will continue to live on.When I think of who you are and what people describe you as , I can only marvel at how good God is to have sent you our way.You are the the embodiment of love,kindness and generosity with not a single bone of unkindness! A peace maker,always willing to make everyone else happy before yourself
      You life is an example of the kind of Love the bible describes in 1Corithians 13.You lived a life that spoke of Love the way God will have us all practice. A friend said to me when she heard of your demise that you told her and I quote 'the best investment anyone can have is to invest in people'. You died a peaceful death and I thank God you died a righteous man.Your life teaches us all that 'it is not of him that wills or runs but of God that shows mercy' and that  'the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong'.

       I am consoled knowing that you lived life to the fullest and died empty because you fulfilled your purpose on earth.Till we meet again,rest in the Lord's bosom Uncle."

Mrs. Francisca Jude Nwosu

With grief I write to commiserate with you and the entire family over the sudden death of your beloved brother Mr. Victor Ogbonna Ezenwoko.

Your brother was a helper, a peace maker and a devout Christian who used his resources to affect the lives of people who came across him while alive.

It is my prayer that you mourn not like those who have no hope but be consoled by the fact that he left behind foot prints in the sad of time.

Please accept my heartfelt condolence.


Akataobi Peace .N."

The Nasty and destabilizing news came like a thunderbolt.It filtered in like an echo from the land of Osiris, quite unbelievable. For hours and days when a hint of what happened was heard, all phones of relations went dead. We, over here in the east, remained in the dark, confused, dumbfounded and not sure who exactly was involved. When the voices managed to open up, they were hoarse having cried themselves to stupor. The feeling was the same all over among relations, friends, all and sundry. An iroko has fallen, an umbrella that covered many has torn to pieces. And so has great Victor Ogbonna Ezenwoko left many as orphans. It is a true saying that a glowing firewood does not last throughout the night.

However, we cannot question God, for we are sure he is already resting in His bosom. If God had wanted otherwise, he would have considered Victor's efforts and contributions to numerous churches in the country, his numerous gifts to widows and orphans, his fatherly help to his siblings and even distant relations, is outstanding generosity to all his staff and colleagues in the banking sector and his highly natural smiling habit in welcoming everybody to his home and kept him to live much longer on earth to continue his good works.

Victor, it is  difficult to fathom the great vacuum your demise has created. Your loving mother you left behind, your wife and children, your brothers and sisters and their children, your in-laws, which I am one, all and sundry, who for many years to come will continue to remember you.

Adieu great iroko, adieu great umbrella. Rest perfectly in the bosom of God that loves you most.

Sir Cyril E. Imo (KSJI)"

"I am deeply saddened that Victor left us so soon. When I had the sad news, I said to myself it can’t be true.. What a sad loss a good friend and an uncommon boss have gone.. For the 3 years we were together in the East 1994-1996, Victor exhibited an exceptional human being. He was a great guy, highly professional, unassuming, and very generous to those in need and a good family man. Victor was very humble and respectful to all irrespective of your level and was liked by all that comes across him. I am honored and blessed to have known you. You are truly a blessing in my life.It was like a family while we were all together in the east.  “Dee ogbo” you are gone so soon but you left a good legacy.  No one can prepare for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. I cannot believe you are no longer with us. I take comfort in knowing that you are now resting in the arms of our Lord. …. You will always remain in my hearts. You went too soon, leaving behind tears and pain. May God rest your soul? I always relate your story of the brave man. You always tell me it is better to be alive a coward man than to die untimely as brave man because the coward man will be alive to point to the brave man’s house that “that use to be the house of a brave man’.

Victor your soul is now at peace keep resting with the lord.  
Victor your pain is gone for you have found eternal rest

The Measure of a man: Not - "how did he die" But - "how did he live" Not - "what did he gain" But - "what did he give" These are the units to measure the worth of a man.
Adieu Vic my man. Good Night. It is well with your soul."

"A Tribute To My Treasure
          Dede Ogboo, Chukwubuikem, my original brother as I fondly and proudly called him Was my hero,a leader and a brother extraordinary.

          Anybody that had the privilege of meeting you will be humbled by your spirit Of humility, service and empathy for the weak, widows and the disadvantaged.

          You created a standard for us to follow and yet you created a vacuum no one can fill.

          You brightened my days,you made me laugh and you made me smile.You sacrificed a lot to make me comfortable and happy but I never had the opportunity to repay you,my brother.

        De ogboo,your sudden departure now seem to me like a deep dark cloud has covered my bright days,the joy and laughter you once gave me has turned into a deep punctured wound.

     God will repay you my brother since I never could,and if I am to choose again, I will Choose you again and again.

"Opara Dim, as an old woman I had presumed that I will be given a most befitting burial by you and your siblings. But somehow, the Natural order of things have been reversed. Now I find myself weakened by age, I am burying you! I wonder if my life will ever remain the same Chai, odiegwu o.
A few natural events had occurred to me, little did I know that these events were preparing me for the most distressing news in my entire life.
Ogbonna you were a son indeed. You took care of me, your father and your siblings with so much care and kindness.
Every passing second, minutes, hour, day and night the thorny reality of your passing Keeps mocking me shattering my heart to bits. Although they try to hide it, I feel the weight of the grief on the faces of the siblings you had toiled to uplift in life and today you are no longer there to partake In the joy of their achievements which you relentlessly and selflessly laboured for.
I wish I could take your place right now. Who will call me Nwunye Ogidi, Nma o, P . Hmmmn it is well.  
I want to thank you for the special privileged of being your mother. Thank you for all that you did for me.
Thank you for the hearts you touched far and near.
Thank you for the lives that were transformed through you.
Your legacies will surely be remembered forever.

Since it is the will of God to take you to Himself at this time, I totally and completely surrender to His will. I guess my loss on earth is their gain in heaven.

Chibuikem, now that you have gone may the good Lord grant you eternal peace and rest.

Adieu my Son."

"Tribute for late Mr. Victor Ezenwoko

I write to convey my sincere condolence to you on the demise of Mr. Victor Ezenwoko, a colleague in the banking sector whose news of death on March 25th, 2016 came to me as the sound of thunder storm.
Mr Victor, you were such a kindhearted man who devoted greater percentage of your life for the services of humanity. Your hard work and creativity in the banking industry distinguished for greater opportunities until death took you away from us. Indeed we have lost a genius. Your successes and achievements will continue to be a source of inspiration to many you left behind.
Indeed life is ephemeral. At this point we cannot question God for he declared that “Many are the plans in a human’s heart but it is the Lord’s will that prevail (Proverbs 19:21).
We take solace in the fact that you lived a worthy life as such we shall meet with you in heaven with Christ when He shall take us to his blessed rest.

Though nature and even the scriptures stated clearly that man must certainly go to the world beyond, but when the information on the death of Mr. Victor Ezenwoko reached me, it was most shocking as well as disheartening.

For those of us in the banking industry we know how challenging such hurdles could be but despite those challenges, you stood the test of time. Your personal skills, ingenuity, and leadership prowess positioned you on the pedestal among the best brains in the banking industry. You were able to create platforms which changed the narratives in the sector. You were a kindhearted and hardworking man.
Your death has left a scar in my heart; as such a colossal loss has created a vacuum not only to your immediate family and the banking sector but to the entire people of Abia State and Nigeria at large.

In truism, you might be in another plane at this point, but we can rest be assured that you have finally gone beyond ordinary existence, something that appeals to the core of man's nature. It does not necessarily matter how long one lived on earth rather the impart one created. Your good will and deeds left indelible marks.

Let us take solace to the fact that the resurrection morning shall see us embrace you in the feet of Christ.

Good night Mr. Victor.

Ogbons, I write this tribute with a bleeding heart, with hot tears running down my cheeks. Your departure from this sinful world is still a huge shock to me without a farewell word. I find it difficult to believe you are no more. Ever since the demise of our father, you played the role of papa and senior brother in the family. You Were the umbrella that covered all Ogidi children, we had strong bond that united us together. You carried everybody along without complain. Apart from your immediate family, you were there for everybody. Your humility was incomparable, you were very intelligent and a positive individual who would look for the best in any situation. You symbolized peace and never believed in injustice, you were a fair master,a crises manager, a motivator, a man of great generosity of spirit. You were a a rare gem.
By your death, the oppressed, the ophans and the widows are weeping, those in need of your help have given up hope for help, you lived a life worthy of emulation.
I have asked God questions why and how this tragedy befall us, but God knows why. His will is divine, hence He called you home on a Good Friday. I am strongly convinced  that you are resting in the bossom of the Lord.
Though you are dead, your legacies will remain forever.
Adieu my beloved Ogbons, Adieu De Ogbo, Adieu Sir Vic, Adieu Chairman, Adieu Fair Master ,Adieu Omere oha, continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord, until we meet to part no more.

Deep in my heart, I treasure the clutter of memories of a beloved brother, sprinkled with tears, wishing God had spared you for a few more years so I could attempt to square all the years of sacrifices, words of encouragement & all your acts of kindness & empathy towards me; never selfish, always loving & kind. These are the memories you left behind.
Inevitably, partings come and hearts are broken, loved ones go with words unspoken. I take respite in the faith that earth may have one gentle soul less but heaven has one Angel more.
I Love You, Big Brother!"

You were a strong, bold, jovial, a rare  larger-than-life kind of character - a pillar that supported our whole family! Oh what a huge loss. Your death has definitely created a vacuum, one that suffocates me every time I think of you .I have so many fond memories of you that I will cherish forever. There was nothing in the world that I  asked for that you ever said no. You did so much for me. Uncle, we never knew that morning that
God was to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.                          But the good news is - You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide and though we cannot see you, you are always on our minds. So we're consoled.
You will be much missed and we all love you ! Adieu De Ogbo"

"Dee Ogboo,

I feel pained to write these lines, much as I have consistently refused to accept the truth that you are gone. I met you once and have so much loved your personality, I thought I knew and had interacted with wonderful personalities until I met.

I am painfully exhausted realizing that I can never again in this life watch, witness or enjoy your disciplined sense of humor reeled in total humility. I am confused and totally disappointed that I couldn't get a second chance to tell you what a wonderful person you were.

I have no doubt that heavens have good record of you and I wish you a joyful rest in Christ Jesus.

Fare thee well Sir!"

"Death still remains the only confusion and problem both in science and religion that man has tried alot of times and failure still remains the outcome. Making life so uncertain,death remains unwanted.
He was one of my favourites  among my uncles who was fond of me and called me by the name "CHIGOX". A man I'll never forget. My eyes are heavy, tears filled in it with freezing veins. My heart grieves in pain because of the love and good will I had towards him. Really, the parting of a loved one simply makes the heart squeeze in pain and tears falling uncontrollably. Oh lord! It shouldn't have been now, God can't you reverse it?
A very good man, a great example to the living, voice of the poor, mouth of the dump, pride of the family and the backbone of the weak....
Till we meet again dear uncle & grandpa, you will still be my uncle in my next life. Forever love, I miss you.
                                                                                                  One of your own

"Despite the fact that death is inevitable to every human creature, still, there are some that are supposed not to die, Dee Ogboo, you were one of them.
   Dee Ogboo Ogbo, as I fondly called you, you were a loving father, a great uncle, and a wonderful friend. Your love for us cannot be quantified. Dee Ogboo, I know you as a man who loved justice, a man that was contented with what he had, a free minded man, a philanthropist who took other people's problems as his, a generous and kind hearted man who always kept his words. You were an epitome of love, peace and hospitality. You were a true apostle of Christ, who walked and worked intrinsically in faith.
   Dee Ogboo, I didn't know you would go celestial so soon because you were bubbling with blood and water and when I spoke to you on that fateful twilight of Good Friday (25th March, 2016). I never knew this is how it feels to lose someone so dear, because up to this given time, it still sounds incredible to me that you are no more.
   I bid you farewell until we meet to part no more.
   Good Night Dee Ogboo Ogbo.
                                                                                                           Your Niece,

Dee Ogboo,on earth,you were an achiever in all ramifications and the most interesting aspect is that you never ceased to share your blessings with all that came in contact with you.You distinguished yourself in an enviable manner.
We would have wished you stayed much longer but as it pleases the Almighty Father to call you home at this time,we sincerely pray that He will grant you a peaceful rest in His Kingdom.

"Dee Ogboo, every passing day, my heart aches like a sore tooth. However, I am grateful to both God for the undoubtedly victorious life you lived.You were victorious both in life and death. Little wonder, you left us during the Easter celebration, the very season of resurrection from the dead.I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that you will rise again in glory when the Trumpet shall sound. To you, death is a looser and not a winner.

While we cry here because we miss you dearly, I believe that the Angels of God are celebrating your victory as you arrive at the main gate of heaven.

I can imagine our Lord Jesus Christ welcoming you into the company of the Saints as "our worthy distinguished Mr Victor Ogbonna Ezenwoko"

May your blessed Soul enjoy a blissful eternal rest.
You will be forever missed  by all of us till we meet to part no more.

"You are known to many as Sir Vic despite your resolve to be called Victor. We still could not help to hold you at the highest heights ever.

Sir Vic,
Your exterior doesn't coincide with your interior,
You were a facade to diminish who you are;
Your masquerade is falling apart;
Because I could see the depth of your soul;
Unraveling like rose petals beginning to grow;
You're one of the most difficult Phenomena to explain;
But one of the MOST EXQUISITE Ones to encounter.

Your invitation to your home to share the yuletide season with your family is one of the most gracious moments.

Sir Vic,
To be able to say I(We) love you;
We had a hell of a nice time together;
It's over but in many ways, it will never be over and;
I do know that I(We) for sure Loved you;
To be able to say that and mean it
That's rare and valuable, Señor.

To your wife, kids and loved ones, I will say fill your skin with kindness and find solace in your solitude. It takes bravery to be kind but to be brave, you will need to know how to stand for something even if you are completely alone.

Be Brave, and stand for all your Husband, Dad, Uncle, Brother, Friend, Executive Director and A True Diamond believed in!

Sir Vic, you are a priceless Diamond...Rest in God's Bossom.

I can not thank you and mom enough for the way you raised Victor and I. You had big plans for us and I promise to make you proud.
Rest in peace knowing that your children are going to finish what you started in our lives.
Rest in peace knowing that your wife and children are going to fill your shoes.
Rest in peace knowing that you were greatly loved by us.
Rest in peace knowing that you will be forever missed.
Losing you is the hardest thing I've ever had to go through

"Sir Vic,

It's was so sudden and fleeting, like a candle in the wind.

No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why.

Don’t tell us that you understand; don’t tell us that you know.
Don’t tell us that we will survive b’cus you never should have left now.

Though our arms are empty, our hearts know what to do.
For every beating of our hearts, says that we cherish you.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.
If tears could build a stairway, and heartache makes a lane,
We’d walk the path to heaven, and bring you back again.

Death leaves heartache, no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory, no one can steal

But you showed you don’t have to live forever to touch the world,
Your only need to touch the world with enough kindness
To live forever in their hearts.

Walk tall, walk on… one of a few good men, I’ve ever known!"

You showed us fatherly love and sacrificed your happiness just to make sure that we were comfortable. It hurts so badly that i didnt pay you back. It's well.You were a cross bearer and never turned down people's request no matter how difficult.You gave succour to the needy and never looked down on anybody, the level of your affluence notwithstanding. Your generosity knew no bound.
Daddie, you will forever be remembered because you were God's sent. You  lived a worthy life and now that you're gone, we shall fight on knowing fully well that you're still living in our hearts. We will not disappoint you because you never failed us.  Daddie, you were not a saint but you were a righteous man. You fought the good fight of faith, lived a Christ like life and died with Christ on good Friday. May God grant your gentle soul eternal rest Amen.

You also became my friend and a friend to my entire family. You became my husband's very close friend too. You bought the ticket that helped me get a visa to the USA, and when I returned years after, you encouraged me to start Berkley and Juilliard Academy. You were smart, hardworking, focussed and yet loving. You were unique, a very rare combination. You were exceptional. I planned to surprise you with a visit and testimonies of our success. I planned a special appreciation call too. Then on Easter, I saw the news on Facebook. It's late now but I must still say all I wanted to say. Thank you Oga Victor, for being my boss, friend, mentor, counselor, brother, and motivator. I wish I had said this to you on time.  Thank you! Maria Rapheal Onyia  PhD"

"Dee Ogbo, it is not really how long one lived but how well. You were God's most wonderful masterpiece. You lived a life worthy of emulation. Though you are dead in the flesh in the spirit, you are still alive and well.
    You touched many lives, you were kind, generous, peaceful and a great philanthropist. You were leg to the lame, mouth to the dumb and speechless, father to the fatherless, husband to many widows, and you comforted those who had no hope.
    Dee Ogbo, among other things you told me in December 2015 you made this statement: "You cannot help everyone, but you can help someone. If you put a smile on someone's face, God will put a smile on your face." That was your philosophy in life, and you really lived it until the time of your sudden death. You were loved by your family, friends, and many whose lives you touched. Like you always sing: "Our hope is built on nothing less, but Jesus' blood and righteousness. All other sands are sinking sand. Even in the grave, Jesus is Lord." You were an angel here on Earth, and you touched many with your angelic hands. May your humble soul rest in perfect peace.
-From your loving sister, Patricia Uche"

"Dee Ogboo,
The news of your passage was like a whirlwind in the United States here. And we, the Ngwa sons and daughters who knew you and what you stood for wept like babies. We had and still have many unanswered questions. Why you? Why the Ezenwoko family? Why now? Why in this way? Why the Ngwas? Why Abia? Most importantly, when and how can we have another like you? It is hard, painful and sorrowful to write about you in the past tense. When my younger brother and me saw you from afar in the village last Xmas, we had no inkling of the fate that awaited the entire Ngwa land with this devastating news. How could we, as mere mortals that we are? It is difficult to find the right words to pay tribute to you. I pray that God will console your children, wife, brothers, sisters and the entire Ngwa land. I pray especially for your mother whose principled life and that of your late dad formed the platform upon which you sprang forward in life. I know you are in heaven because you lived an exemplary life. May your death be a reminder to all humanity that we all need to straighten our lives as we all shall return to the Lord sooner or later. And may all those whose hearts are filled with evil know that on the final day, we will only be remembered by what we have done. We thank God for giving you to the Ezenwoko family, Ngwa land and Abia State. We only wish you didn't depart so soon and so suddenly."

"Daddy,with uncontrollable tears streaming down ma cheeks I write this. There were soooo many lessons to learn from you ( from your humility to your selflessness to your gentility, to name but a few of your attributes). De Ogbo, I still wonder why God had to let you go this sooon but i guess i will never understand because His ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts ours.I remember the 5weeks I spent with you in 2014, you were really fun to be with (I would miss your dance steps and the way you used to tease me). I would miss you calling me "Prof" each time we spoke over the phone. You didn't wait to get the helicopter you said my future husband would bring to u instead of wine * smiless*. I miss you soooo much grandpa/ uncle. People say the rich mostly give to the rich  but you majorly gave to those who couldn't even pay you back because you believed that the greatest investment anyone could make in life is investing in people. Daddy, we all miss you. If tears and prayers could bring u back am sure you would be back with us but angels like you deserve to be with God and I believe you would be happier with him. Love u sooo much uncle. Till we meet to part no more!"

I write with pain in the heart and also with thanksgiving to God Almighty, for the life and times of a renowned personality, in-law and friend, whom God has called to his eternal reward in the mean-time. He until the last moment remained an icon and a model of authentic Christian and community living. A Holy man. A good man. A simple man etc.

His presence on earth was that of inspiration, motivation and courage for all who came around him. A respecter of men, an educator of champions. It is indeed a chapter closed over excellence, simplicity, humility. However, even in his absence, his shadows will continue to loom large, his mission even well accomplished.

Those who benefited from his benevolence remain un-countable. Very difficult to pick out a fault in him. A man of truth and justice underneath is compassion and love. Victor's dealings with people we characterized with unity of purpose and purity of intention. Victor never condoned half measures, he rather encouraged excellence. A transparent man.

My pain is that this type of Victor comes once in a generation. I pray the Almighty God to console me, his immediate family, (wife and two children), P-De-P (the mother) and other siblings.

Farewell Ogbo, Farewell great one, Farewell Ogom as you fondly call me. Go in peace true and worthy friend till we met to part no more.

Dear Victor,
       I write this letter with a heavy heart and eyes full of tears. I remember very clearly that we spoke on the phone on Thursday 24th March, 2016 and you promised that you will be visiting home on Easter Sunday-27th March, 2016 and had already bought your flight ticket. Indeed, for this impending visit, our discussion was brief, since we looked forward to a full time discussion, come Easter Sunday.
      With deep sense of loss, I regret that this visit never took place again, as what we heard the following day was the ugly news of your death. This devastating news came to us like a thunder bolt, with great shock and horror and none of us here believed it. What a tragedy!
     In our confusion, many questions have been asked without any answers. You were not sick for a moment Vic. What actually went wrong then? Who was responsible for this eclipse? These are some of the questions to which no answers have been found.
     Your sudden dismise without a word to anybody is a calamity and a colossal loss. People, young and old are weeping , the widows you catered for are  confused in their grief. The St. Michael Catholic Umuacha ( your home church ) which you contributed very immensely  to build and the entire community are mourning. Your friends and well wishers are still in doubt. The young school leavers who submitted their CVs to you last December, with the hope of securing a job through you are helpless and despondent. The list is endless.
      Victor, your life here on earth was short but greatly eventful. You preached and practiced peace. You were kind and generous and above all God fearing. You showed love to everyone who came across your way. You were indeed a man of the people who lived a simple life free from arrogance and deceit. Honesty was your watch word. These virtues are lasting legacies that will remain even after your death.
    Since death remains a mystery and an inevitable end for all mortals, we take solace in the fact that you lived an exemplary life worthy of emulation. I am proud to say that you touched many lives positively during your sojourn here on earth and this will for ever remain your testimony.
     Lastly, having fought the good fight and maintained the faith, God in His infinite mercy and goodness, will not fail to count you worthy of His heavenly kingdom. Keep resting in His bossom till the resurrection morning when we shall meet to part no more.
    Good Night.
                                                                                             Your Brother In law
                                                                                                     Oga Egbu"

"It is indeed unfortunate, painful and unbelievable that we are writing a tribute to you because you supposed to have lived to bury our old mum, but today, reverse is the case. What a purnishement? Mother burying his son. MY brother who could not hurt a fly, It's only God who knows the circumstances behind your tragic death, God I believe that vengeance is yours. The wicked will never go unpunished.
     Dedem, we spoke last on 24th March, 2016 and you told me to prepare a nice vegetable soup which you will eat on Easter Sunday when you come, I got your house ready, dressed your bed waiting for your arrival. Little did I know that the bed I dressed is where your corpse will be laid.
    Dee Ogboo, you were a special gift from God, a peacemaker, very reliable, gentle, caring, very respectful, cheerful, simple, charitable, accommodating, generous to a fault, brilliant, a linguistic, forthright in your dealings with people, always ready to help in any situation and exceptionally likable. People who knew my senior brother will testify these qualities.
    I can't believe that I will neither see you nor receive your calls anymore. Well, we are nothing to question God because he alone knows why.
    If options were given either to live or to die, I know you wouldn't have chosen to die now and I strongly believe you made heaven. Well, if there is anything like reincarnation, you will still be one among the twelve.
    Nwannem oma, O.G.B, rest in peace till we meet to part no more."

"Dee Ogbo,
U were one of a kind, a rare gem, a rare Ngwa man. Ur humility and hospitality was second to none. I am proud to be called an Ngwa man because of people like you. Sleep on my brother. "IN UNUM LUCEANT". Continue to shine ur light upon us. Ngwa Land will miss u, GCU will miss u, u will always be remembered. U fought a good fight and u kept the faith. We will never forget."

"On that Good Friday night  you went to answer the supreme call, it was like one of your usual journeys. But you  have not returned ever since. You are gone like a candle in the wind.
Death is a necessary end that will come when it will come. But like a candle, you lit dark corners and brought illumination. You brought joy and laughter to all around you.
You have run the good race. You have also fought the good fight. Though your life was brief but you were like an eagle. You left indelible marks in all that you touched. You had soft, gentle and big heart - a heart of love and forgiveness.
I believe that those who gave lives beauty live forever in the hearts of men.
Ogboo, you remain forever in our hearts as affirmed in the last stanza of Edna St. Vincent Millay's "Dirge without music"  'Down,down down, in the darkest of the grave.Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind; I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned'.
Adieu,  brother, friend and in-law."

"The beauty of life isn't in the number of years lived on earth but in its quality and the number of lives impacted positively. No matter how long one lives on earth, it would still have an end; even the days of Methuselah came to an end. Sir, I never got to meet you in person in this plain of life but the testimonies of your good deeds are more than overwhelming.
We all mourn your demise because you will be missed here but heaven isn't in a mournful mood because a good man just arrived home. Philippians 1:21 says- For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Rest in Peace, Sir.

"You went about doing good in your own quiet way. You were taken too soon, but our consolation is that God in his infinite wisdom knows best. You have completed the mission he assigned to you on earth. And in a quiet way as you have always been, he took you to be with him. Rest well, amongst the angels, chairman! God bless you"

"Perhaps ...

Perhaps some day the sun will shine again,
And I shall see that still the skies are blue,
And feel one more I do not live in vain,
Although bereft of you.

Perhaps the golden meadows at my feet,
Will make the sunny hours of spring seem gay,
And I shall find the white May-blossoms sweet,
Though You have passed away.

Perhaps the summer woods will shimmer bright,
And crimson roses once again be fair,
And autumn harvest fields a rich delight,
Although You are not there.

But though kind Time may many joys renew,
There is one great joy I shall not know
Again, the joy of talking to you, seeing you, laughing with you Dearest Uncle Vic... Fare thee well. You are truly Forever missed..."

"I had met with Dee Ogboo just a few times but it  left me with an indelible impression about him. He struck me as a very amiable and accommodating fellow. My in-laws and indeed abia state  has lost an irreplaceable gem. I pray God to grant him eternal rest and give his aged mother, wife and children and the entire Ezenwoko family the fortitude  to bear this devastating loss."

"Dear Uncle, the all-encompassing lesson I learned from your lifetime is that "I can show my faith by my deeds". You inadvertently taught me what it means to have virtues of Humility, Kindness, Generosity, Longsuffering, Forgiveness, Sacrificial Giving & above all, Perfect Love. I know for sure that I am a better man because of these lasting legacies you left me. May you rest in the arms of God's Love."

"I am still trying to comes to terms with the reality that you are gone. I never had any personal encounter with you, but you were one boss I admired so much. Your passion and your willingness to lend support to all was unequalled. Your sudden demise is indeed a big loss to us and especially your family. I pray the good Lord to grant you eternal rest and your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Rest In Peace Sir Vic."

"Oh! Ogbo, my brother, nothing can quantify your loving kindness to anyone that ever came in close touch with you. You were quite simply an epitome of humility. How can we ever bear this great loss?
Your demise has left us with a deep chasm in my heart that would take only God's grace to heal again. May you find rest in the bossom of the Lord. Till we meet to part no more, So long, Brother!"

"Mr. Victor Ezenwoko your demise  was a shock to each and every other person that hears it. Though the Bible made me to understand that death is inevitable. It is  a prize every living creature will pay no matter the time, age, rich, or poor. Sleep well Mr. Victor Ezenwoko, May your departed soul rest in the bossom of the Lord. Amen."

"If we had the power, we would bring you back to us. You were the perfect father, friend, and uncle.

You taught me that family isn't always about blood. You taught us hard work, dedication and kindness.

You were perfect, inspiring, and a role model. Words can never be enough to describe this irreplaceable void.
I still want to call you, to hear your voice once again, to listen to your advice.
I will always love and remember you."

Sleep on Oga mii...sleep on Sir Vic..."

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal and love leaves a memory no one can steal.Chai! What a life, DE OGBOO!!!!! how could we have known, that
God was to call you home that faithful day?
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you so soon and Abruptly  
You did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us with beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Ezenwoko’s family chain is broken,
Our Iroko has fallen,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will certainly link again. Even
In death, you will continue to participate in every act,
Thoughts, decisions that we take, your love will for ever
Leave an indelible imprint in our memories but we fined
Solace that our lives has been enriched through you. RIP OUR DEAREST UNCLE. Nwoko Obi oma. HMMMMMM!!!!"

"You were my boss, mentor and in-law. But you were indeed more than these to me. Your humility was second to none. I thought I knew how good you were, but I was wrong. Now am beginning to understand that you were God sent.

You named our son Chinwekele and he will grow up not knowing you, his grand dad. It hurts!

We had unfinished businesses, hope you remember? So why did you go now.

Safe journey Dee Ogbo."

"It is with great sadness that we write this today to celebrate the life of our friend. Victor’s life was taken away from us too soon and it is hard to understand why tragic things like this happen to such good people. However, this is a question without an answer and we should not dwell on the loss of our dear friend, son, husband, father, brother and uncle. Let’s celebrate his life and remember all of the remarkable things Victor accomplished in his life and how wonderful his life was.

It is incredibly sad that Victor’s life ended so soon and we cannot put into words how much we will miss him. Victor was a positive person and would not want us to be sad. If he were here he would tell us to cheer up, smile and remember that our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus Christ and his righteousness. Even though Victor may be gone, his memory will live on in all of us forever. Victor we appreciate your friendship and will never forget you and the wonderful times we had with you in United States.

Uncle Victor, as my children and I used to call you, we thank you for all the wonderful time we had with you. We salute you for your brilliant mind, for your enlightened friendship, for your passion and commitment to justice, for your nurturing of others, for your generosity, for your moral leadership, for your patience and understanding, for your spirituality, for your deep devotion to your family, for your truth, and for your uncritical acceptance and love.
You will forever live in our heart!
John, Agwaoma, Uche, Ugo and Chinedu Ogbunamiri"

"I saw you in Everlasting Covenant Church Los Angeles, if only I know I was sitting beside an Angel.
Grandma has lost an irreplaceable son, Pastor & Pastor Mrs Simon Uche, Nonye and the Ezenwoke royal family has lost a beloved brother, husband & father but in God the rock of their salvation they have found strength, comfort, peace and encouragement to keep your wonderful memoir aglow.
Dee Ogbo as you are fondly called by many, you lived a good life, you touched so many lives and Angels like you don’t die, they live on.

Your wife, children, mother & your entire family will miss you, the world will also miss you but of a truth Angels like you are on assignment they don’t live in this wicked world, they live in heaven.

Saint Victor Ezenwoko is sitting at the right hand of God.
                              HE LIVES ON"

"He was the light that brightly shone
He was the joy that filled the room
He was the laughter that filled the air
He was the jewel,precious & rare
I think of you in silence and no one sees me weep
Because my silent tears are shed while others are asleep
God , give me the strength to face the sorrow
The courage to bear the blow
But what it means to lose you, only He will ever know
They say time helps us to forget
Patiently I wait.
Sleep on my Father, my Brother"

"DeeOgbo, there's never a day, hour or minute that I don't think of you and wish that God had given me more time to be with you,because you made a difference in my life and held a special spot in my heart.

I lost a truly unique, one of a kind person when I lost you.
You had a smile that lit up a room, you were a beautiful person... everyone who knew you loved you. You had a great heart, everyone meant the world to you.
You were the full package.. so full of life, energy,& love.
Although you are gone you will never be forgotten.

Saying goodbye to you is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
I miss you,"
