ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created to honor the life and memory of our beloved husband, father, brother, sibling, in-law uncle, nephew, relative, friend, colleague and associate. Mr. Anthony Chinenyeze Ekeh, 67 years old, was born on January 18, 1954, and passed away on March 7, 2021. He had a positive outlook and zest for life with an ever-present smile which left everyone he met feeling welcomed and like the most important person in the world. He is remembered forever as a Godly, loving, humble, gentleman and astute scholar. 

Nneye'm, Chi'm, Daddy, Pops, Tony, Okenze, Dee/Dee Tony, was known by many different names and in some circles fondly called by classmates as ''Eze goes to school'', and was loved and respected by all who had the pleasure of meeting and knowing him.

Daddy deeply loved God, while fondly valuing his wife, children, family, friends, colleagues and associates, not forgetting his passion for wisdom, discipline, principles, hard work, humility, honesty, focus, clarity of purpose, music and life in general --- a strong trait he passed on to all of us.

By his life, unwavering faith, journey through his last days and even in his dying, he taught us (and likely many of you) some very significant life values especially centering on deep reflective faith life lessons. Here are a few that stood out:

Believe in God
Throughout his lifetime, Dad had a deep belief, love and reverence for God with a staunch practice of the Catholic doctrines. He enjoyed attending daily Catholic masses, singing hymns, reading his bible, Pieta and other prayer books, including praying his rosary repeatedly.

Unwavering Faith & Positive Outlook
Knowing Dad, he always had an unwavering faith in God and positive outlook to all aspects of life which was made most evident particularly in his last days of excruciating pain.

Humility and Service to Humanity
In his outstanding humility, he greatly accepted all and enjoyed to his best capabilities, service to humanity which portrayed him as a highly emulated mentor and figure of quiet strength.

Wisdom, Discipline, Principles, Honesty and Hard Work
To those who knew him, his fear for God instilled in him wisdom with a strong sense of discipline not forgetting his natural inclination of being an honest, principled and, hard working individual. 

Love for Music, Chocolate and life in general
We his children, fondly remember daddy's love for classical music, his rhythmic dance steps, ever bright and cute smiles, love for sweets, biscuits and chocolates particularly dark and white brands which we could always count on him to have readily available and generously share with us. 

Clarity of Purpose and Focus 
During his lifetime and till his death, he was greatly admired to exhibit clarity of purpose focusing on his set goals without wasting much time and energy. This was evident in every life project he engaged in that kept him always motivated and driven to turn his life dreams into reality. His most loved quote regarding this and even at his death hour was... ''Don't panic, be calm and stay focused''!

Adieu Daddy!!!
Rest in God's peace and power!!!
May your legacy of a well lived and humble life live on!!!
Only a moment you stayed, but what an imprint your footprints have left on our hearts!!!
You will forever be missed!!!

Romans 14:8 ''If we live, it is for the Lord that we live, and if we die, it is for the Lord that we die. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.''

Life is like a candle in the wind.
I have known daddy to be calm and reserve.
I hardly see him or hear his voice when ever I visited. But anytime I did he will always leave your presence with a calm word or advice.
Oooh! How death has snatched away an angel on earth . But I believe it is for good. We love you daddy. Its hard to say goodbye . INIOBONG

Thanks so much Dee Antho for a life well spent, though short but very very meaningful & worthy of emulation. Thanks so much for been a role model to some of us. It was from you i learnt that with hard work, perseverance & prayers one can achieve his or her goals, attain greater heights. Thanks for having an open arms irrespective of ones status. Thanks for the simplicity of life, humility devotion to your catholic faith. Although time & circumstances couldn't allow us spend more time together but i thank God almighty for the little opportunity. We are not mourning you sir because we know you are in a better place, we are only missing you, mourning you will mean we are ungrateful to your Maker who doesn't need a visa to visit. We are very very grateful to God almighty for the gift of you sir. Thanks so much for everything and please always intercede for us as you rest in the bosom of our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. Requiescat in Pace good man.

I have known the family for the past 5 years. I was a neighbour & friend to the children, I moved in as a young lady in her 20’s , Mr Ekeh & his lovely wife became somewhat of a Forster parents to me & my brothers, they showed genuine concern over our wellbeing, education, health and family.

We are Catholics so we & the Ekehs attended the same Catholic Church in Maitama. I can’t recall any Sunday & evenings I didn’t see Mr Ekeh on his way to church with his lovely wife beside him.

Life can be very unfair and it’s really unfortunate that we have to bear the loss of a rare Gem as Mr Ekeh, he was a family man, who loved God/the church, he was a man of faith, a man who loved his wife, he was a man of principle. In many ways he remained me of my father as I often told Jude.

I pray that our lord Jesus Christ guides, protect, uplift and supports the family. May his Grace, Favor and Mercy rain on the family, May he give the entire family the Strength and Love they need right now. May the soul of Mr Ekeh find rest and peace. Amen!.

Farewell to an astute Visionary, an amazing husband and a loving father to my friends.

You were always warm and welcoming all the times I visited your home and its a pleasure to have met the great man behind my awesome friend Chisom. You are sorely missed.

Your love for family, especially your wife and kids is very unique and is one distinct and alluring Legacy you left behind which I have learnt from... You had an examplary road map for their future and you gave your all to see them become the best in everything they do.

I must say that you raised outstanding leaders and world changers in every one of your kids and without a doubt, God is pleased with you for being a wonderful custodian of the family He blessed you with.

The Lord grant divine peace and comfort to the family you left behind and also grant your loving and precious soul eternal rest in Jesus name, Amen.

Isaiah 57:1&2...
_The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death_

Hi Francis

I saw your status and I said to myself...I'd reply tomorrow because I have a test I'm prepping for...I am currently reading and I was thinking about my mum and she is actually the LOML...and I know how close you were with your dad and how you use to call Him "Daddy", especially when you needed something ...yes I still remember and I told myself, I bet it feels terrible to loose a loved especially when that person is your parent...Francis I know you are going through though times and I know how well you ponder about things when they don't go your way...I never knew your dad personally, but I liked Him because you liked Him....you are literally the baby of the house and I'm sure its pains you more than anyone because you wanted to Him to see you graduate and that never happened...death took that away from you. However let's just accept the will of God and trust that your dad is in a better place...As for your mum, I am deeply sorry she just lost her husband...that's terrible and even more terrible when it dawns on you that your mum is a widow.....it is well...I miss you francis, I love you Francis and I pray that God continues to illuminate the pathway for your family to have an okay grieving time...it is well with you and your family

The name of the Lord is a strong tower the righteous runneth into it and they are saved.


The Ekeh family is saved.

It’s an honor to pay my tribute, to the father of one of my closest friends, even though I never really met him personally or directly, I definitely met him in so many other ways through the actions of his sons, he indirectly touched my life, and I am 100% certain, he lived a very good, fulfilled and accomplished life that would go on the record as him being a great man.
He has definitely left a legacy that would be carried forever.
Posted by Joseph Isama on May 11, 2021
Losing someone so dear is a painful experience, but through death life sprouts.

Late Anthony Chinenyeze Ekeh has been a great man, I've known since my secondary school forays. This is because his son, Tochukwu Jude Ekeh, was one of my best friends. Doing visiting days when, everyone was outside looking for their parents, and some who knew their parents or guardian wouldn't come, would be hopeful they can at least join their friends in the whole pomp of visiting day. On that faithful day when I and Jude was searching and waiting for our parents, there came Jude's dad, Chinenyeze Ekeh, as I met him, we greeted and he asked me to join them to eat something, while I wait for my parents. This was a kind gesture, which shone the generosity of Chinenyeze Ekeh.

Anthony Chinenyeze Ekeh was a man who didn't have the heart to see people suffer. He continued to exemplify that generous trait till death. He never thought of himself during distress, even in pains he constantly supported his children and wife. He chose to make the pains he felt, not to extend to other people, because he was a man that had the quality of sharing goodwill. He shared his wisdom, his money, his time. He gave it all to his children, wife, and random people like me.

It was a blessing to know Late Chinenyeze Ekeh. It was a blessing indeed. He had an earnestness with the relationship he had with the church. He love God so much. He never waivered in his dedication to the church. He saw the church as a place where he got his comfort and direction. He didn't relent in sponsoring programmes, activities and construction that happened in the church. Again, he never missed his evening masses. I'm sure the Rev Father will testify to that, but Chinenyeze Ekeh is a highly quiet and humble man, may go unnoticed. All this left a strong impression on me, because I knew at that time, that it's only with a dedicated life to God, that one can find our success and solace.

Chinenyeze Ekeh humility was something I found surprising. Why surprising? In Nigeria its rare to see someone who has achieved as much, not even close, to late Chineyeze Ekeh achievements, and still ride a modest car, keep a modest house and raise beautiful and down-to-earth children. Late Chineyeze Ekeh's humility was a trait that showed itself where ever he went. This humility was a shown in his infectious smile. His smile that reflected a man that never burdens himself with the things of the world.

My heart goes to the family of the Late Chinenyeze Ekeh. To the mummy of the house, please accept my condolences. To the children, it is rather too early to live your life without a dad, but be rest assured that he trusts you guys to move the family further, with the direction of God.

Chinenyeze Ekeh will continue to live in hearts. May his soul rest in peace. Adieu Anthony Chinenyeze Ekeh.

FARE THEE WELL UNCLE TONY

Dee Tony,

You were not just a cousin to me. You were a friend, adviser, role model and helper. You were there for me at some very important moments in my life.

I was looking forward and waiting for the day I would say a proper thank to you. Little did I know that life had other plans.

You were a perfect gentleman. The age gap between you and I didn’t make much of a difference. Your ever cool and calm disposition rubbed off on me positively. You may not have known that I learnt a thing or two from you. But I am sure you know now.

Your passing came to Uju and myself as a rude shock but also taught us a thing or two about life.

We would have wished and were always looking forward to a longer relationship with you but the good Lord said He needed you early. We have no right to question God, so we have accepted His divine will.

Uju, Andre, Bryan, Kayla and myself will surely miss you but the fond memories we have of you will remain evergreen.

We hope in the resurrection power of God and in the fullness of time, we shall meet to part no more.

Adieu Uncle Tony.

To a Loving Father,

It is truly sad to lose such a great and down to earth man. I stayed briefly with Mr. Ekeh and his family, and I saw firsthand how caring and thoughtful he was, always asked about my wellbeing, and supported in whatever way he could, in his words, wise advice and in kind as well. I thank God I learnt what I could from watching and listening to you.
I pray, may your soul rest in perfect peace. We will all make you proud sir.

You'll never be forgotten , Rest well ❤

Knowing Francis for a while, I’ve known the respect and admiration he’s had for his Dad. He goshed a lot about how his Dad made efforts for him and his siblings.

A memory I have of Mr. Ekeh is that of a time that I went to Francis’ house in Abuja (early in our secondary school days), Mr. Ekeh was out of the house but when he returned and met me, he said, “oh is this the smart Ebube that Francis always mentions”. He added, “remember to keep doing well in your studies as your efforts will be what will take you to greater heights”.

Those words stuck with me throughout my secondary school days even now I’m in university”. It shows the calibre and epitome of a man Mr. Ekeh was. He always knew that hard work pays off. I believe he worked really hard to raise and take care of his family and I believe they will always continue to make him proud.

RIP Mr. Ekeh, it was great being a part of your life through your son, Francis, and I believe that he and his siblings will be able to continue the successes you started.

Life is really something else. i remember back in school we always called Francis "daddy's boy" because we knew how much Francis spoke of his father and when i first met him, i could understand why.
Mr ekeh was kind to me. Everytime he saw me during the visiting days, he always smiled and spoke igbo to me. It made me feel warm and welcomed whenever I'm around the family. The advices he gave us were always on point, some i can remember vividly to this day.
He will be missed, but he will be celebrated as well. God will see his family through and continue to bless and protect them.
Nna yi ka chifoo, ruo mgbe anyi ga fu ozo.

Time, time is such a funny thing. It feels like just yesterday when I first met my friends father, Mr. Ekeh and his family. I will always remember the first impression he gave, someone strong, reliable and a man who cared deeply for his family. I will always admire these traits. May God grant him eternal peace and to his family, comfort. Ameen

I feel so sad writing this tribute in honour of my brother-in-law, Mr Anthony Ekeh. My sadness is that this great man, who gave his all to his wife and children, siblings, friends and relatives did not live long enough to reap the fruit of his labour. Psalm 90:10 says ‘our span is 70 and 80 for those who are strong’. Bróther did not live to be at least 70! But my consolation is that his short life was NOT emptiness and pain as Psalm 90:10b described as ‘…emptiness and pain, they pass swiftly and we are gone.

John 10:10b says ‘…I have come that they may have life and have it to the full’. Thanks to you Jesus my in-law enjoyed this fullness of life. Anyone who knew Mr Anthony Ekeh would testify that he was so blessed with the quality of life. He shared his life fully with his family and friends. Mr Anthony found joy and fulfilment with his wife and children. He was a father and a husband per excellence. He was also a faithful believer in Christ, a son of our Mother Mary, a gentle peace-loving man, a man who stood for justice and fairness against all odds! What about you? Who are you? For what will you be remembered?

This tribute will ONLY make sense to the living and NOT to Mr Anthony. He has already gone to his eternal reward according to Hebrew 9:27, ‘after death comes judgement. His death is a reminder for us who are still alive, that one day we MUST die (Ecclesiastes 9:2). Life is short! So let us learn from Anthony to set our priorities right by letting go of all bitterness and anger; be a beacon of light to others, and surround ourselves with positive energy. This is the secret of the quality of life that Mr Anthony lived! Not money, Not fame!

My prayer is that the Lord will bless my sister, my nieces and nephews with peace and consolation. May Jesus fill the gap Mr Anthony’s demise has created in your hearts and in your home. May Our Lady keep you focused on the path he showed you.

Adieu Mr. Anthony Chinenyeze Ekeh! Adieu, Brother! Rest on until we meet to part no more.

Like I call him by his account name, Mr & Mrs Ekeh Anthony was a good man. He had great value for his family,this value guided his decisions in all my transactions with him. I remember vividly that Sunday in February, he called me to tell me that I should ensure everything is seamless for his family, that I should close his irrelevant accounts, He said to me " You have my blessings, relate to my family as you have been to me". I told him not to talk like that. "He said he wont be here for too long" that broke my heart . I will miss having him as my customer, his jokes and laughter. Who will call and say Sylvia Kedeeee! his normal greetings to me.
May his gentle soul rest in God's bossom. Amen

TO MY LOVING COUSIN(Dee Tony)

Dee Tony,

It breaks my heart to see that you left us. You were a very strong person. I recall our discussion when I visited you at the hospital in Lagos. You remained positive about God's faithfulness and love. Your constant words of advice when we talk.

Even in your pain you kept checking on me to know how my Mum(Da Beatty as you fondly call my mum) has been doing since my Dad passed.

I was praying that you will beat this but God knows best.
I know you are at home now resting in the bosom of the Almighty where there is no sickness or sorrow.

You will forever be missed. Dee Tony,May your soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

MR. ANTHONY EKEH WAS A MAN OF FAITH

Mr. Ekeh embodied the words of St. Paul in Philippians 1:21, "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain". These words kept our faith journey smooth during the last days of his earthly life.

While others worried about Daddy getting well soon, he already acknowledged that his triumph to eternity was close and that life for him was only going to change but not end.

After resuming Pastoral work at Holy Trinity Parish, Maitama, I got to know Mr Ekeh, and he would often say during our conversations "I love hearing Father's voice", that endeared me to him. My conversations with him was sustained while he was sick and under treatment because he was a vibrant, lovely, and, warm hearted person. During the period I provided spiritual guidance and support to him, I saw his health deteriorate to the point where he could barely talk and remained in constant pain. One of my encounters with Daddy at the hospital never suggested to me that it was going to be the last because he seemed strong and in better health. A statement he made that day, however, bothered me "Father, I am ready", "I am ready Father" he said. I kept pondering on these words days after I left the hospital, until Chikam (his daughter) broke the news to me that Daddy had died.

The Holy Eucharist prepared Mr Ekeh for his final journey, and I am happy for Daddy because the words of scriptures is fulfilled in him, "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day" (John 6:54).

May Jesus Christ whom Daddy believed in the Sacraments, especially the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, receive him into heaven where there will be no pain but happiness and peace.

I pray that the soul of Mr. Anthony Ekeh, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

AS TONY, A GOODMAN, DEPARTS:
TRIBUTES BY MSS CLASS OF 72

An Igbo adage postulates that "an age grade progressively experiences a decline in its membership, never an increase". As children, that assertion was bemusing but the subminimal reality crystallized as we continued the journey of life. From 1966 to date, a handful of our peers/pals have transited and we hold their memories so dear while the population, nay membership, continues to decline.

Tony dear, gentle you were at MSS, even among the "very gentle". You were so small, quiet and studious that we teased you as own "Eze Goes to School". You were a quintessential MSS product - disciplined, obedient and relational, and never sought trouble or crossed the line. We don't recollect you having been made to "cut grass" or to wash the "General Plate" on account of any form of prank. With nostalgia we recall those days of great amitie and fellowship that characterized the BEST MSS CLASS OF 72.

We are proud of the report that you maintained admirable virtues through the university days. Alumni of your University have testified that both in the hostel and faculty, you showed yourself above board, giving credence to the endowments that MSS inputted in us. MSS NEVER FAILS. And happily, you rose to an enviable pedestal at your Workplace, holding and discharging responsibilities creditably and earning your due honour at retirement from service.

Tony, we will miss you unto the end of time. We will continue to relish the fond and warm moments we shared together. We are glad that at the fullness of time, we will meet at the feet of our Lord Jesus.

Our deepest condolences to his dear wife and children. We pray that God will grant theml the necessary courage and fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Gladly, you set them on a sound footing: educationally, materially and spiritually. We will continue to uphold them in our prayers and counsel, and assure that we will live continually in the legacy and common aspirations that we share.
ADIEU TONY, ADIEU GREAT PAL; REST ON IN THE BOSOM OF THE LORD.

A TRIBUTE TO A MAN OF REPUTE!

Dear Late Mr Anthony Ekeh,

I knew you as that man who never misses evening masses since his retirement, and you come in through the car park of the parish (Holy Trinity, Maitama). I knew your wife as that gentle and quiet woman who never misses masses nor her private devotion all in gentility and in her unassuming nature. I knew your daughter, Chikam as one young lady whose faith and conviction holds a pride of place in her life (so Uncommon of our age), but she was just a replica of you!
I knew these trio independent of each other, until when you fell sick and I came around to visit you at the invitation of your daughter, Chikam. On getting to your house and seeing your family picture, I exclaimed that I know this family (unknowingly).
To cut my long story short Sir, and with utmost regard to the dead, I wish to say here so strongly that you were a man of great faith. It showed when you summoned your family while transiting to the life hereafter, they all gathered around you that early hour of that Sunday morning as you breathed your last (an hour before I arrived). Yes you are no more, but we have only lost you just for a little while. Your family now has a representative in the Church Triumphant as I trust you will keep interceding for them and us all.
Rest well dearly beloved good soul, we will meet again someday soon for whether alive or dead, we belong to the Lord (Rom.14:7-9).
Adieu Mr Anthony!
