I remember meeting you for the 1st time at Obiageli's grad from University of Maryland in 2009. You seemed so cheerful, friendly and full of life.

I was so sad to hear the news of your passing but God knows best. I know Obi was very fond of you and I'm sure your entire family. May God keep your loved ones and may your memory live on in your children.

Dear Bros Tony:

The last three times I saw you, we were at funerals…Uncle U, my mother’s funeral mass in New York, and at her burial at Asaba. You brought comfort to me and my siblings. I never knew in a short while that we will be mourning you and in sadness that our Lord has taken you from us. We will miss your smile and presence forever. You were always the bright light entering the room. Your presence was indeed the light that always sought to brighten everyone around you. Trying to understand and making sense of your death will come at us as massive waves of grief; however, we will hold tight to your light and remember the happiness and joy you brought to our family. Our faith tells us Life is eternal… eternal life is what our Lord promised us. I know I will see you again. Tony, until we meet again, adieu and may you rest in the bosom on our Lord. God bless you and Rest in Peace.

Remembering you with fondness.

Rest in Peace Dr. Anthony Nnamdi Obiago
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!

We remember you fondly, though you have gone.

Gone from our sight but secure in our hearts.

Our prayers speed you on, to eager loving arms who need wait no longer.

Just out of view, where our grief is their joy, where an earthly goodbye is a heavenly hello. Joy that one day we too shall know.

Love from,
Jide, Katherine & Remi Adeniyi-Jones

Nnamdi was TRUE friend and a GREAT human being! My first trip to Nigeria, in January of 1983, was with Nnamdi and my cousin, Kwame Olatunji (God rest his soul). We stayed at Nnamdi's cousin's house in Surulere and spent the first day visiting friends and relatives, of both, all over Lagos until late in the night. It was fabulous and Nnamdi wanted me to see and experience EVERYTHING! He had his own business to handle, but he made me his priority, and I will always remember that trip because of my Brother, Nnamdi!!! I could not have had a better introduction to Nigeria, and Africa! I lost touch with him for several years and the Good Lord reconnected us early in 2020. I am sure that I talked with him nearly every day up to a few days before his untimely transition. I will cherish those conversations.

Nnamdi loved God, his family, Nigeria and living a good life. I will miss him forever! 

May he rest in Peace with the Lord, forever!

I will see you again my Brother!

EULOGY FOR BRO NNAMDI OBIAGO
We wish that we were today writing an eulogy for Dr. Nnamdi Obiago in respect of one of his numerous achievements, not his funeral. We however know that God knows best and we are thankful (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
Bro Nnamdi was a well loved man. A man that loves God and not only submits himself to work for God, but has a relationship with God and hears from Him regularly. God blessed him and he in return blessed a lot of people in different ways. His time here on earth was eventful. He was a very active member of the Men's Fellowship and whenever we are graced with his presence due to his numerous travels, it is always impactful.
He was a good husband to his lovely wife June and a model father. He has the right words for every occasion and in his own way, puts a smile on people’s faces. He never shies away from expressing himself and was humble enough to accept a superior argument. 
We are comforted by the fact that he is in the bosom of God. (Isaiah 57:1). We love him, but we know that God loves him even much more than we could ever do. We hold on to the good memories of him that we store in our hearts till we meet again to part no more.

EULOGY FOR DR. NNAMDI OBIAGOR

You were a gentleman to the core, always standing tall amongst the crowd. You knew what it meant to make a first and lasting impression; always stepping out with your best foot forward. All these I noticed  on the first day I met you and you kept to it, even to the end.

Your dedication and service to God and things of God was unequal. I never heard you speak Yoruba, but you sang graciously and continuously the praise of God in Yoruba and other languages. You never stopped wowing me in always lining up with the other members of the choir to sing unto the Lord.

You were an inspiration. A source of encouragement to my family and I. You were a very humble and grateful person. When you needed me to do little things for you occasionally, you never stopped appreciating the gesture. Indeed, you were a gentle giant. Thank you for all you did while here. But we even thank God more for all He did through you.

“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.”    (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)

Rest well in the bosom of our Lord darling Dr Nnamdi Obiagor and may the good Lord be with the family, nuclear and extended that you left behind, amen.

Biodun and Chidinma Odejayi

This is a difficult one.
I have been unable to write a tribute and as today is the deadline for this task, let me just say that Nnamdis is sorely missed.
He was a gentle soul, took his Christian discipleship seriously and his smile said everything about him. His life is a reminder that we all need to make Christ our focus too.
As is very often the case, little did I know that our last chat was going to be the last.
Rest in peace beloved brother. Your dearest Annisco will forever have you in my thoughts and prayers.

Uncle Nnamdi,
I prayed so much but you didn't return to us. I can't question God. Your demise has created a vacuum in our hearts. I remember that you would always encourage me whenever I told you of my business ideas. Thank you Uncle. I don't know when I will stop crying sir, you will be sorely missed 'My Country Man'.

Nnamdis,

You should have warned us on December 29th, 2020 when we last spoke that we would never see each other again. Your loss is unbearable; however, all human beings owe a debt to the soil from which we all come from and must return to. For family and Friends that you have left behind, we will never forget you. Your memory will forever remain alive in us. Goodbye gentle man and dapper dressed Nnamdis.
Sleep in peace until we meet again.

Ogbueshi George Nwabukwu.

ADIEU BROTHER ME
Once I hear: “Sister me,” I know it is the unmistakable voice of: Nnamdi’s Antony Obiago.
He was the only one who had the exclusive right to call me – “Sister me”. With Dr. Nnamdi Antony Obiago, there was never a dull moment. I remember our trips to Kingsway, and Leventis stores in Jos, Plateau State when we were much younger. Daddy Bauchi as we fondly called Nnamdi Obiago’s father loves to bring his children to come spend the weekend with us (Adaba family) in Jos. We loved those times. We felt very privileged. Big Daddy will pack us in his car, and we would go to Kingsway or Leventis to buy meat pie, cake and puff puff. These were “aje butter kids” – privileged kids. We loved and cherished the times we spent together. Now it is no more
Though I was years older than Nnamdi, he made it look like we were age mates. He could not get himself to call me Aunty like I had asked him to, instead, he resorted to calling me “Sister me.”
Oh Death, why are you so wicked? I visit Nigeria often and on one of those visits, I did not call or go to visit with Nnamdi in Ibadan. When he found out that I had visited Nigeria without calling or stopping by to see him & family in Ibadan, he called and said: Now listen “Sister me,” The next time you come to Nigeria and do not check in with me, I WILL REVOKE YOUR VISA to enter NIGERIA, do you Understand me??? Yes Sir, I responded then I thought to myself – this boy na wa anya oke le kwu !!!. Now you are no more, what a loss. My heart bleeds – if revoking my visa would have kept you alive, then I would have gladly surrendered my passport. Sleep well my dear cousin.
We the Nwabukwu’s, in the USA will surely miss you. Your in-law Ogbueshi George Nwabukwu misses you very much. Who will call him:” Bros G, Bros G,” Our children loved you and that have now extended the love to Oby, Nnamdi Jr & Luka. We will miss your smile, we will miss your fashion – always well dressed, No one to revoke my visa when my current my visa expires. Oh death, why did you steal my precious gem???
Your Cousin Anne Nwabukwu (Nee Adaba)

Your departure, hit us with a Big Bang. Docs. Personality was affable, his Spirit, was simply immaculate, and his Soul, sublime. Your memory will ever live with us. We wanted you to be with us for much, much longer, but God, knows best. Our only consolation, is that you departed in Grace. Rest on big brother, until we all meet in The Bosom of Our Lord.

Big Nnamdi was a very kind and gentle man. He always made it a point to visit my kids Donell, Gary, Dante in Tacoma, Washington when he was in the states. We all loved him and remember him for his infectious laughter, his generosity and warm personality. Prays, Love & Condolences to the family. Rest In Peace my friend.

Sir Nnamdi, i never met you in person but heard many great things about you. You were a compassionate individual, kind hearted, magnanimous, God fearing, humble and peace-loving. When the news of your illness broke, I prayed for your hasty recovery, only to wake up to the devastating news of your demise. It is indeed sad to say the least. The amazing memory i hold of you will never fade away. May the peace of God abide with you wherever you are. May God grant your family the fortitude to bear this great loss. Till we eventually meet in the after-life. Good Night Sir!

Uncle Nnamdi!

You left too soon. What words can be used to describe the shocking news of your exit from this world, to meet your maker. I got to see you again 4 weeks ago after so many years and was overwhelmed by the calm presence around you each time I come close to you. How can I forget your friendly demeanour; full of smiles and your gentle voice. What a privilege to have had that dance with you in Nigeria. I will hold beautiful memories of you in my heart forever and cherish that dance. I pray the almighty God keep your wife and your beautiful children in good health and long life in Jesus name, I pray that the beautiful memories of you in their hearts will keep them going in Jesus name. Rest on Uncle Nnamdi
