The family is oriented the right way and that is a testament to what a father Victor was, and what influence he STILL has!"

"Uncle Vic,
This is one of those times when my brain refuses to coordinate my thoughts and words fail me. I am still overwhelmed by emotions and still confused.  It seems like a dream though I knew you were sick. I had trusted God for miracle, but you know, our thoughts are different from his.  It pleases him to call you back home and I can not but thank him for bringing you into my life.  You were a blessing to me. I still remember the day you walked me down the isle on my wedding day because my dad was late.  It seems like yesterday.

Adieu my dear friend and brother.  Sleep well until we meet to part no more.

Ifeoma."

"I was just down at home alone thinking, then it occured to me to come to your page. Sir u were a blessing when you were alive, and even in death your life is still an inspiration. I heard about how you fought through your pain, even when u were in severe pain, you still found the strength to smile and u went to work and provided for your family. Like you did when you were with us before the lord called you home, I will always fight and remember that no matter how tough it gets we will overcome with God on our side."

You were a good man. You did not loose the fight. Yours was a victorious one. Rest in the Bosom of the Almighty. Adieu Victor! Adieu!!"

This tribute was added by JOE UGO-EMERIBE on 22nd January 2014

"Sir Vic,
Very difficult to believe you lost the fight. Last time we spoke when you came visiting Nigeria I was certain you would overcome the challenge. Great friend you were and I enjoyed every moment of the four years I shared with you while at school.
Your cool disposition and excellent sense of humour did not dwarf your strong personality. You were such a rare gem, a dependable confidant, lover of family and a courageous guy as exhibited in your last fight.
Vic, your life taught warmth, love, compassion, courage, and generosity.
Good night my friend and see you again someday.

"It has always felt so unreal until my car became the last car at the burial grounds. Despite the fact that I heard of your death from reliable sources. Despite the fact that I attended the wakekeeping and funeral mass and saw you lying in state. It still all felt like a dream and still does for the most part. So, I can only say that you are sleeping with the Lord.   Sleep tight and rest in perfect peace. You will always be remembered."

Desolation spreads its dearth;
When the evening birds rejoice,
They thou lov’st will miss thy voice;
Wife, and daughter, bright eyed sons,
They, the lone, and weeping ones;
They, the loving, and the fair,
Brother, they will miss thee there!
Farewell my Brother and and friend,
May your dear soul rest in peace

"We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family. Victor was full of life and loved it. His smile was disarming &contagious. Just last Sept, we shared reminiscences & looked on to the future. I was recovering from a major surgery in London, he continued valiantly in faith to remain with us. His faith was definite, unequalled, unmistakeable and specific. Today, we bid him farewell. Victor's demise uncharitably reminds us all of the inevitability of our mortality. May God grant him repose, his parents, wife, children & family, fortitude & blessing for love and sacrifice."

I couldn't hold back my tears as I realized that I will not hear his gentle voice again. Victor fought very hard, but God knows best. He was a gentleman, caring, loving and respectful to all who come his way. He was a very dear friend and may God give his wife and children and the rest of his family the heart to bear his absence. May we, his friends and family take consolation that he is not in pain anymore and he is with the Lord, Amen."

"I am yet to come to grips with your passing though I was there with you when you took your last breath. you were my older brother but we were like twins. We fondly called each other Sweetie m. You were my friend, my defender, my encourager, my brother. Oh how  I miss you. It's hard to believe that you are no more. Such gut wrenching pain I feel within my heart whenever I pick up a phone to call you and realize that you'll not be picking up my call anymore.. We shared so many fond memories and every moment I think about the pranks we played as kids, the fights you got into trying to protect me, your advice to me when I was going to marry your friend, my husband Nnaemeka. Words of wisdom that have helped me be the best  wife I could possibly be.  I am told to be strong for mommy and papa, for your family, and for our siblings. Uncle Vic you were the one with such wide shoulders to carry all our burdens. You loved and loved so deeply and everyone who had the opportunity to meet you drew from that deep well of love that was you.
I am so privileged to have shared this lifetime with you. Thank you Lord for the extra time You gave this gentle soul to find You and make his ways right with You. I am comforted  knowing that you are finally at rest in heaven with God,  looking down on us with that infectious smile and saying do not mourn as though you have no hope rather remember me for the good memories we shared. My dearest brother, it is not goodbye. I say goodnight until we meet again in glory in heaven.
I Love You Uncle Vic.

""Every man's life ends about the same way; how a man lived is only what distinguished one man from another" Victor lived a wonderful  life from what I know, always eager to help where necessary. intriguingly your faith in God we know guided you. You ran the raise so be rested with Jesus.

It was difficult to believe you left us so soon to be with the lord. it may seem unbearable and very hard to deal with at this time. To those who encountered  Victor will attest to the fact that victor was a jolly ride fellow and helpful to whoever met him. His smiles and jokes was just unending.

To those who are closely related to Victor, certainly you must share the pains, however, God has already said to us  not cry as those who do not have hope, because we have hope in our Lord Jesus Christ whom we know Victor is resting with now we can wipe our tears and glorify God for he brings and taketh.

victor you fought to be with us for much longer, but God wants you more.
Rest in peace with the Lord our dear friend!

"Bro Victor, I prayed like never before that this cup will pass you by. You even reassured me that it will come to pass.This was not to be, because obviously GOD loves you more.
Words cannot express who and what you are to me. Iam dumbfounded. Where do I begin, is it the helplessness i feel inside or the emptiness thereof without you? Yet, I must submit to the will of the ALMIGHTY.
I have accepted that you have transited to eternal bliss and I thank  GOD for the wonderful life you lived - exemplary and inspirational.
I thank GOD also for the lovely family you left behind - who are an enduring testament of your legacy.
I trust that one day we will meet again. Rest in the bossom of the LORD, Nwannem."

"I have so many memories over the years of knowing you and your beautiful family. One thing that stands out about you is your commitment to your children. You were always a great father to them and very involved in their lives. I remember when I used to babysit and you would be home early to make sure they were taken care of. Death is a terrible thing and I never imagined that seeing you at my wedding would be the finality of it all. But I thank God for your life and your legacy because we know you are no longer in pain. My prayer is for your family; I pray that God will always be their everything and help them fill this void you have left. We love you but God loves you more"

"Victor, my good friend and brother in Christ.  Your smile would light up a room and you had a twinkle in your eye (like you had a secret).  You always had the joy of God on your face, and you carried that with you right until the moment you left us to be with your Heavenly Father.  You will be missed."

"My dear Victor, I remember meeting you for the first time, and the warm feeling that I got from your smile. The last time I saw you I took in the words of encouragement that you gave me, and those words allowed me to move forward. You will be greatly missed, but you are now where I will continue to move towards arriving. Ochi and I will forever be grateful for all the good memories that you left behind. We will miss you! Love you much Kuti !!... Love Ochi and Jerri."

"Uncle Vic, as we break the news of your passing on to glory to Adanna and Obi, the sobbing was more than Ezioma and I could bear. Adanna's why questions got me and her mom speechless. She asked does it mean our Almighty God did not hear her prayers, the prayers of Uncle Cyril and aunty Ebere, and prayers of your collective friends and families. Her consolation was affirmed when Ezy told her that God wanted you at this moment in time. My dear friend, I remember the plans we had for the kids, especially Adanna and Chetanna; our dream for them to be friends for ever. I remember when we visited during summer, how Adanna and Chetanna have grown apart, and how we consoled ourselves that they will eventually get along as time goes by. Ezi and I thought you would have been there as we watch them. Uncle Vic, there's no word out there suitable enough to express our feelings; feeling of loss and helplessness. our solace and comfort of heart rest on the fact that you lived a good and God fearing life.
May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. The Onwukanjo Family."

You will definitely be missed by all. We love you but God loves you more. I pray that the most high God will keep your wife, children and the entire family."

Awe."

"I lost a good friend... You always saw the good and funny side of every situation. Your ever present smile and witty jokes bring fun to every gathering you are in. I believe you are in a better place now, and I pray God to give your lovely wife and kids the strehgth to bear the deep pain your passing has brought them. Goodnight "Uncle" Vic."

"Uncle Vic, we're told that in the end, it's not the years in life that count, rather the life in those years, the lives touched and the good-will established. Any body who had encounter with you will attest to the fact that you were a force for good in this world. Your uncontentious character surpassed normal understanding. Your broad smile, beam kindness, and communal spirit will be missed by your family, friends and community. You were my hero in many respect, and I cherished your friendship more than I could explain. My good and bosom friend, you lived a good life worthy to be emulated, and we thank God for that. We surely miss you and will continue to. Rest in peace."

"The lord is my shepard, I shall not want. Victor, You were a living miracle. Thank you so much for the grace in which you handled the most difficult time of your life and through it all, inspired a lot of us that were watching. You were always there for your friends and  your community and for that we thank you. There are many things that we will never understand but we know that God is in complete control. You will be terribly missed but we also know that you are now in a place where there is no more pain. Farewell until we meet again in glory.

"I thank God for Victor Okeke. Many people can be salt and light in times of refreshing and great joy, but not many can reflect the light and love of Christ in times of suffering and pain like Victor has done this last season of his life. Even in pain, Victor proved that Christ is our refreshing joy. Victor has given me hope that even when I walk through the Valley of the SHADOW of death, our God is with us. Thank you Jesus that death is now only a shadow. Have a good rest Victor, we will be together soon.

Bill"

We love you but God loves you most."

"Sir Vic, I still have not gotten over your departure as it seems like a big dream. Just 8 days ago we were together cracking jokes and enjoying each other's presence only to loose you two days later. Words cannot express the void you left in our midst, particularly for Uzo and the children. Wow life is really whatever it is called, but you will never be forgotten as you continue to live in our hearts through your wife & children. There are much to be said about the gentle soul that you are, but for now Rest In the Bosom of our Lord and Savior. Amen.....Till we meet again.
Larry & Floxy"

Victor will be dearly missed, his light has shined bright in the world. Victor has done his work here on earth and now it's time for him to go on and continue to do Gods work in heaven. Rest In Paradise Victor, you'll continue to live on within us. I miss your word of encouragement. Adieu"
