Where do I even start from? You were an embodiment of peace Uncle Azu, I'm still in shock and in grief.
All I want to say is thank you; thank you for being a role model, thank you for being a guardian and father figure, thank you for the constant laughs whenever we spoke, I'm thankful for all the summer vacations we all got to spend with you.
I remember vividly all our trips to Tesco to get groceries and you teaching me how to shop; you would say “always pick from the back that’s where they hide the new stock”. I remember how you’d always come back home from your hospital shifts and settle down with your okro soup and WWE playing on the TV. I remember all the times you would come back to Nigeria and would have so many stories to share about your “young days”, those were the funniest stories. There are so many memories I have of you I can not fit it all in writing. Thank you for always being present.
They say that there are some who bring light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains, that is you uncle Azu because even in your absence there is still joy and comfort with the memories you left behind. You will always be my uncle Azu and I will always hold onto the memories I have of you.
I know you’re in heaven watching over us and probably perturbed we’re mourning this much but this is a great loss to all of us. Till we meet again in another world/life, I will always love you my dear Uncle Azu.
Love your niece, Nneamaka.

Azu Nwannem am still in shock just cant believe you are no more,
Oooh Death you are so wicked.

Rest well Azu

‘Be still and know that I am God’- the words of king David in psalm 46.
Azu nwanne m, your death came as a rude shock. I don’t know what to say. You are greatly loved. You will be missed. Only heaven can say why you were called at this time. All is as God wills it. As long as Christ remains on His throne, we are confident of our end.
Azu nwanne m, may your gentle soul remain in peace. We leave all in the hands of Christ. He is God. It is well.

Azu i struggled to write this because i wanted to be in perpetual denial about this sad and heart breaking story. Your passing brought to fore the realisation that life is indeed transient and a vanity . You were such a fantastic gentleman , kindhearted , calm, intelligent and wonderful family man . I don’t even know how to pen down your qualities. My own friend and brother of life , go well . I am assured that your reposed soul will find peace with the almighty forever . I know we will meet again to part no more . Azu this is so emotional . Laa na udo, ezigbo son of Nkwerre .

Beloved Uncle Zubby and birthday mate,
You are a memorable soul, a loving husband, father, brother, uncle and fellow. A knight truly to the core who always looked out for the well being of family. I rejoice knowing that your soul is resting in the bosom of Jesus Christ, you lived an exemplary legacies life and made sure to let us know how much you loved us. Having to say goodbye to you has not been easy to come to terms with. Your laugh and still lingers in my head as you gave your blessings to I & Harold . Your words of strength and empowerment are resounding in my heart. Grateful to see how much strength your legacy gives to Aunty Chioma and the kids. You have done well. God is proud of you. Your joyful and vivacious personality will be prolonged in history told of you and through the way you have showed us to live our best blessed lives. I love you and miss you so much our shinning light.

Dearest Azu, where does one start to write this tribute. It has taken several attempts for me as each time I open this memorial website the tears start to flow.

What a huge shock it was, for those of us who only found out about your illness that awful Friday morning.

I felt like my heart had been reaped out of my chest. So many questions, how, when, why!

I last spoke with you in October 2020 having reached out to you with my concern about a procedure and you had called me to reassure me that there was nothing to worry.

Little did I know that you were facing your own health challenges.

My plan had been to visit you the following day after I got the news of your illness but I was a day late.

As it has pleased our faithful God to call you home, I pray that he will comfort and strengthen all the loved ones you left behind.
We cannot question God as we are all pilgrims on a journey.

May you rest in peace and rise in Glory.

My brother and friend, Zuby. It is still hard to sink in the news about your demise. We cannot question our Maker because He has the final say to our last day on Earth. You were such a nice person and I have no doubts in my mind that the Heaven's gate was opened to you. Adieu Doc.

"Just left. It will take me 90mins-2hhrs"

This was your chat to me on October 20, 2018. In your kindness, your were willing to drive that long just to keep a lunch date with me. It was not because we were secondary school classmates; knowing the schedules you run in your profession.

Indeed you picked me up and we had a great time seeing each other again the first time in over 40 years. The next time I visited London in 2019, we spoke on phone and you were planning a December trip to Nigeria with your family. I was really looking forward to seeing you again when I visit; only to be visited with this rude and sudden news of your passing.

I and the entire Ogssian class of 1976, are saddened, but take solace in the selfless life of service and philanthropy you led. I pray God gives your young family the strength to carry on your legacy....

Azu. The perfect gentleman. A dependable friend. You had compassion for your fellow man in abundance. You took on other peoples’ problems like they were your own. You were amongst the finest to have ever come out of Nkwerre. It is so hard to believe you are truly gone.

I only found out about your illness just a few hours before your passing. I thank God it still gave me the opportunity to be there, that awful night in your house, to be with you, hold your hands, and comfort you as best as I could. Typical you, you had quietly borne your illness stoically so as not to trouble other people.

I take solace from the knowledge that you are now resting peacefully in the bosom of our Lord, your creator.

Adieu my dearest friend. Long live Ugokembu 1 of Nkwerre. You will live forever in our hearts. The Lord will never let those you have left behind to feel abandoned.

Dr Zubby, your death came to us as a rude shock. We your class mates at Government secondary school Owerri 76 set will surely miss you.
May God Almighty grant your lovely family the fortitude to bear this great loss.
May your soul Rest In Peace!
Adieu the great Ogssian!

Zubby Iyke, Still have not come to the sad realisation that you are no more. Can still not understand why a gentle,peaceful,caring and unassuming young man like you will be gone by now. You were a Christian properly so called , a knight of the Chruch and a lover of the traditional values. Our years at Government college Owerri were eventful and memorable, the visits to your uncle at Shell camp and your visit to me when I was in London all proved you were a friend indeed. May God who is all knowing and have called you home early grant your soul rest in His bosom and give your wife and children the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

Chief like no other, husband extradonaire and dependable father. You loved your family like kilode and they loved you too. If death was a fight you would have won it for your family. It is so sad you left too young but God knows why. May your beautiful soul continue to rest in peace

Medical man my loving brother, it was very difficult processing your question to me on our last phone call. You asked “EMETUMBA CAN YOU IMAGINE ME”,

Ugokembu you were the best and finest, a gentleman beyond compare.

Humble, loving, caring, humility personified, ever cheerful and my brother whom I love so much.

If death was negotiable, I would have gladly volunteered my life for you to live.

You will be terribly missed, my heart and spirit are broken. Miss you eternally dear brother, rest well.

You were a lovely, kind hearted soul, who will be missed dearly by all who know you.
Posted by O Onyeama on June 20, 2021
Azuu was more than our cousin, uncle and brother. Our personal person. Onye nke anyi. Beautiful inside and out. Such a gentle, loving heart. Brilliant and exceptional, yet humble and so giving of himself. A fighter you want in your corner, and a peacemaker. A son and brother to be proud of. A model husband and father. Azu was my big big cousin, but he was always open, always available, and so generous with his attention, home and love.

Losing Azuu is a heartbreak that cannot be put into words. But we keep consoling ourselves in the fact that he lived such a good life, and the light that his life was touched everyone who knew him, with love. And we keep reminding ourselves that we “do not grieve as others who have no hope” for we know the hope we have in Christ. “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so will God bring with Him those also who sleep in Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 4:14).

May the Holy Spirit comfort Chio and the kids, as only He can. May He give us gladness for mourning, strength for fear and peace for despair. Rest in peace Azuu.

Dad
I am not going to write too much because I’m still struggling to accept the fact that you are no longer here. The wisest and most selfless man I knew. The greatest Father. I wish I could have one more conversation with you, I wish I could hear you laugh one more time. It is so unfair you had to suffer, because you did not deserve it. Even in your last moments, you did not want to be a “burden” to anyone else. I miss you so much and I so desperately wish you were still here.
Till we meet again.
Your First Daughter, Adanna.

OUR ‘SHOOTING STAR’ HAS PASSED ON INTO THE HEAVENS!

   Azuuuuuu......., You are our ‘shooting star’ who came and shone in our earthly skies for a beautiful fleeting fifty-four years, and went back quickly into the Heavens, and to God.
   As the shooting star that you are, you are a rare phenomenon, whose presence may be brief, but whose impact remains forever meaningful, and unforgettable through the generations.
   You are our precious child-prodigy who made an unusually quick start on the path to life’s important career goals as a medical student at age 16, and a medical doctor at age 23 years. Then you went on to achieve everything that a man should expect to achieve in life, before the age of 50 years. Then you left us dazed and tearful because God needs you among his Angels.
   We love you always Azuuuuuu...., and we’ll always miss you. How can we ever forget your selfless, thoughtful consideration for others, your highly disciplined, professional and gentlemanly disposition, your always respectful charm and polite conversation on all subject-matters, your humility and generosity of soul and spirit, but above all your love for family.
   Rest In Peace, Great Brother! God is in control and knows Why. He knows you and needs you and will take care of the beautiful family you have left behind. Rest In Peace, My Azuuuuuuu........
   Sister Adaoha.

How does one say a forever goodbye to her big brother ?
How do we move knowing that Azu is no longer walking this earth?
AZU our hearts are broken!
Ever since I was a little girl running around with Bimbim you have always been that calm ,loving ,gentle yet strong voice that will call us to order, the brain that knew the answers to our questions, the mentor that inspired us, the big brother that led the way, our wise counsel, the person we all run to when we get ourselves in trouble. Your word was always final for us.
Azike!!
We thank you for the beautiful family you have blessed us with , Chioma and the kids. You live through them and they give us comfort and strength at this very difficult time.
We will miss you everyday till we see your warm smile again.
Adieu My big brother

AZU’ is how I was first introduced to you.
I regret not having actually seen in you in person. I heard your voice many a times strong jovial you struck me to be. Only recently was able to put a face to your voice.
You have departed but will never be forgotten you will always be remembered fondly by me for your support that you rendered remotely
THANKYOU for leaving a spark of light in our lives. Rest in Peace.

Ugokembu dim, this has been by far, one of the most painful tributes to write. Since meeting you over 30years ago when I was dating your cousin and finally getting married to Umelo, you have remained a faithful, sincere and committed brother and friend.

I have watched the way you conducted yourself and your family, making your wife, Chioma, the envy of many women. I have watched you and Umelo share so many fond memories of your lives growing up, serving together in PH and destiny bringing you together to London and loving minutes away from each other.
Azu, you have been the closest relative I have had to run to on the few occasions when Umy found himself at his most vulnerable state. I trusted that you will handle those moments with dignity because I have watched you share your ‘moments’ with him…. and you did not disappoint.

During your battle with your illness, your faith in God’s healing was unwavering even in the face of the seemingly inevitable. Your words ‘Ikay, my faith is strong,’ in the last two days before you left us gave us so much hope.

Boy, we prayed! We trusted God for the impossible but…
Painful as your death is to all of us, it was such an honour to watch those hours pane into minutes and seconds as the song, ‘What God cannot do does not exist’ serenaded you into the bosom of the Lord.

You made us proud. You fought gallantly and I dare to say that God wanted you with him more than we do.
Chioma and the children will be well taken care of. The memory of the legacies you left behind will continue to carry them through, but we will surely miss you.

Rest well, Dim
Ugokembu Na Nkwerre, I salute
May your gentle soul find eternal rest.

Boy,
My dear brother and super duper friend… I find it very hard to believe you’re gone! What a wonderful time we had together from day one to the end. My tears are endless…

We never stopped laughing, so much love, so much joy. I will miss you….

May God accept your joyful heart and soul. May the warmth and peace you radiate fill the heavenly places.
Rest in peace and stay loved!
Your brother, 
Boy

My heart is heavy with sadness I am unable to find good enough words to describe you, our friendship and every minute of the day we shared together.

You are not just my best friend but my brother from another mum. The brother that I no longer have but will forever remain grateful to God for the opportunity to have you in my life. There was no day that passed without us speaking to each other. We shared everything, good or bad, we laughed together and shared each other's pain and secrets.

I still make sure to speak to you every day because that is what we did though I soon realise you are not responding and sadness fills my heart but I won't stop talking to you. And I cannot stop. Never! because no day ever passed without us speaking multiple times. 

Even though you are gone, I can still hear you tracking away in laughter. I can still see your handsome smile. Yes you are gone but your presence remains with us and will do forever until we meet again.

You brought smile, joy and laughter on the faces of many. You are honest, compassionate and warm. You were a source of inspiration and hope to many and you positively touched lives both back home in Nigeria, here in UK and all over.

A brilliant doctor and wonderful gynaecologist, care passionately for his patient and loved by both patients and staff.

Your memory will forever live with us. I am praying that the good Lord give your wife and beautiful children the fortitude to bear your departure.

Rest in perfect peace my Bro.

Despite all of the hardships and challenges you went through in life, you always found a way to make us happy. Even though you most definitely did not deserve what you suffered, you fought a very good battle, and will always be a winner in my eyes . The only thing I can understand from this situation is that you are no longer in pain or suffering. I will continue to remember all of the fun memories we shared. I love you and I will miss you so much. Rest peacefully Dad

CAN I, MAY I, SAY..
Azu was not only academically endowed, he was also good humored person free of rancor who despite his privileged upbringing exuded so much humility that one cannot help, but love him. Yes, he was that man. I have since the death announcement of this all season gentleman avoided anything that will remind me of him. It is difficult for me to phantom the rubbish. I am depressed. I am angry. As a mortal I register my disagreement with whoever recalled Azu at his prime without consideration to his growing kids. Who will break this sad news to Sister, who?

During a light informal gathering at one of our cousin's home, Chu Emezie in December of 2019, Emeka Uzoma cousin to Azu engaged us in French expedition. But to Azu and the rest of us we knew better because what we were bombarded with sounded like paya. After minutes of trying to remind Emeka who refused to take a hint that his version of French was strange, a simple question from Azu ended the mental torture he was inflicting on us. Azu's words: "Emeka, French ke le na ada ka nga epe ga nku." Emeka, your French sounds like splitting firewood. That's Azu for you. Doc., Doc., no, I can't say goodbye let me attend to my watery eyes first. ...Nnawuihe.

I have spent days, trying to find the right words to say My dearest Uncle Azuu. But there are no words. No words to describe the man you man you were, to us your family, your friends and even passing acquaintances. For every single person has nothing but good, loving words and memories about you and they are all so true.

So I say this, although we are heartbroken that the Lord has called you home, we will forever cherish and be thankful for the precious moments we shared with you. The easy way you made us laugh, your calming and reliable nature and the unquestionable love you had for us.

I will miss you my dearest Uncle. Rest well till we meet again.

Azuu,
Onye m ji eme onu. my young and vibrant brother, cousin, and doctor. I am still in a state of shock and dumbfounded about your demise. No one in our family can ever phantom what happened, but who are we to question God's plans for each of us. You have always been so wise, firm, and confident in all of your decisions even as a young guy when we were all growing up. Standing in the gap for you and Obii, when I was taking care of Udo taught me a lot about who you grew up to become as a first son, and head of the household. Onye na nahu acho nsogbu ya na onye ozo. Chaghi o! Young at heart and yet traditional to the core. Disciplined, principled, full of strong faith in traditional values, Christian principles, and unflinching in the face of shaky storms. You were always the bridge in troubled waters for others. Had never wanted to be the center of attraction or be a burden to anyone. Always the to-go person for many of us in the family and outside the family including those older than you. Nobody can ever say they have had issues with Azu before. Not in the family and/or outside.

Early this year, on March 3rd, to be precise, you came to my mind and I reached out to you via text to check on you and your family especially because I assumed you were in the frontlines of the Covid 19 battle in London. Azuu, you sent me a reply two days after saying "We are as well as can be, Ijeuru. Thanks and God bless." I didn't read through the message then to see the red flag clue you were giving me until I heard of your own personal battle. I just assumed all is fine except the usual hustle and bustle of the healthcare industry. I didn't know that will be the last time I will hear from you. The truth of your demise will always bring me to tears.

Oh my God, it's so unbelievable, my brother. I miss you and have not stopped crying since this dark cloud befell us in the Family. I know God is in control and with His infinite mercies ushered you into His angelic bossom. You are gone but never forgotten, and It is well with our souls as we look unto Him for the strength to continue on our own life journey. I pray for Chioma and your lovely Kids. I pray the thousands of angelic hosts will continue to surround them with unending love as you did for them when you were around for we have Jehovah Jireh providing for us all the time.

Azuu, sailing on to the triumphant glory, Amen!

I dedicate this track to you on this Father's day week.

LAMENTATIONS FOR AN ANGELIC BROTHER:
 Nwanne this was not the agreement oh. I thought we are going to grow old together, fighting the Uzoma family challenges together. Well, it is not your fault my dear brother as you fought like a Spatan. What a world? You were there for me, the Uzomas and humanity, so I pray God rewards you accordingly.
You were gentle, calm, calculated but decisive in all your dealings. You were also kind, accommodating and generous. I was carried along in the trajectory of your ailment but I was so sure you were going to make it because you were an Angel and Angels do not die, they are immortal. Azu nwannem, Ugokembu n'ala Nkwerre, a Soldier of the most High God and an Angel of life to many people, the ripples you caused in this world cannot die rather they will be passed down to generations unborn. That is why you are not dead rather you transited into a higher realm where the grace of God is forever benevolent and sufficient. Thanks for sharing your life with us, however in my next world I would wish to have you as a brother. Hmmmmmm chei chei! It is well my worthy brother.

Nwannem, you so loved and cared so much for others and loved ones that you choose not to let them know about your pain and suffering.

Such is typical of you not only as a trained physician but as a brother and friend.

You remained BEAUTIFUL in life and till you exited this planet earth. And you will remain BEAUTIFUL in our hearts each and everyday.

On behalf of my family, I wish you goodnight and sleep well BEAUTIFUL MAN.

Azu I we loved you so much but it's only God knows the best. Keep resting humble man.. I still remembered our last conversations .. you said that God will take control in everything that I shouldn't be cared.. I'm very sure you're in right hand of the Lord.

You taught me so much about life and i will never forget it. Despite you being gone, our memories will always remain as death cannot take that away from us. As a dad I couldn’t have asked for anything more from you as you did it all for us. You were a role model to everyone and we all looked up to you. 
I vow to look after the family for you and make you proud forever and always. Rest in eternal peace dad. Love from your first son Kelechi.

I still cannot believe you are no longer with us Azu :( However i'm content knowing that you are no longer suffering and in a better place. You were my favourite Obs and Gynae Consultant, and it was such a pleasure working with you, someone whom always honoured his word. You were an honourable, hard working and honest man and one of the nicest Consultants whom I have worked with. Heaven has a new angel...but do know, you will always be missed, and never forgotten!

Uncle Azu
You were a blessing to our lives and I know so many were blessed in Nkwerre through your humanitarian work.
Personally, I don’t know how I would’ve survived Nkwerre/Owerri without you. You were always there to treat me through all my ailments and made sure every medical order was administered properly. Your laid-back and funny nature made you approachable and as kids, we were never afraid to ask you for anything. I wish I would’ve seen you one last time but only God knows why it wasn’t so.
I’m still in disbelief that you are no more here. You will be missed but through your family and the lives you touched, your legacy will live on. Till we meet again.

Words failed me, heart broken !!great one and wonderful soul missed. I can barely say your name without breaking down into tears, it hurts so badly to even look at your picture knowing that you’re no more. I still find myself endlessly wondering why you had to leave us so soon.
Cousin dearest, your love to mankind was endless and overflowing and you had one of the biggest hearts. You inspire people you believe in, you made a huge difference in every life you’ve touched. You were so kind, open minded and accepting. No matter the situation you saw the best and potential in everyone.
I remembered how as a young and practicing Doctor, you took care of my first pregnancy back then in London England. You bore my fears and anxiety and you made my first trimester easy...;
Dr Wilcox!As I fondly called you. In your short life you’ve lived life to the fullest and You ended it with grace!!

Life is too short I have heard numerous times, but it hardly made any meaning to me until I received that phone call that you were gone. It felt like everything has come to a stand still and I realized that we will never have the chance to get together and see again. Azu nwannem you were always there to lend a listening ear, you always had a special love for me that you had to name your first son KELECHI after me. You have left me in tears crying and asking God why do you have to pass on at this time. Your home in London is my second home in the U.K where I come to stay as it pleases me, infact my UK trip will never be complete without coming over to yours where you treat me and sing praises of me always, You were so loving, so caring, you were my gist partner and always fun to be with. UNFORGETTABLE,, IRREPLACEABLE , that's what you are. I have prayed someday we will meet again where the pastures are green and there will be no pain, no sorrow, only joy and laughter. Rest In peace Azuuu-nwannem,

Our consolation is that you have gone to a better place where there is no pain or sorrow. Even though you are gone, your memories will not fade. You were indeed a gentleman, cheerful and thoughtful. Rest In Peace. Your Cousin

Where do I even start from telling the whole world how much you meant to me and my family in particular?
You were more than a brother to my husband, more than a brother in-law to me and even more than an uncle to our kid's.
You cared for us more than even a parent could care for his/her children.
No Sunday passes without you calling hubby to know how we are fearing.
Your care was second to non Doc.
The news of your death came as a big shock to us Doc. I even questioned God out of pain why he allowed u to live us at this time. Your death is indeed painful to bear but my confidence is that you are resting in a better place because you were a very good man. Your legacies sir will always be remembered.
#Goodbye my best brother in-law#
#Goodbye Ugonkembu#
#Goodbye One nze Nkwerre#
#Goodbye Doc#.

As you close your eyes in rest, may all your pain and troubles be lost forever. May you find paradise and a world of eternal life.
May your soul Rest in peace.

You Meant So Much
Azu as fondly call you, you meant so much to all of us. You were so nice
a human being and that's no lie.
Your presence brightened up the
dearest day.
You were a gentleman to the core.
You were so humble in so much high
and low associated with you.
Your smile alone warmed hearts.
When you called me and informed
about your illness l came to your home
and you assured me you would be well.
Doc, not a second passes when you're
not in my mind. The hurt will ease in time.
Many treats l have seen and cried.
They have all poured out like rain.
I know that you are resting well now.
And no longer in any pain.

Azu nwanne di uto,
What shall I say. No words can comprehend your demise. You left us heart broken. As you rest in the bosom of the Lord, please remember to watch the people you have left behind. When you see my father Udeze Godson Chinaka, tell him I love and missed him.
Adieu bros!!!!❤❤❤

Azu, I will not leave a tribute as your laughter is still heralding & being heard at your Umerenne that you loved so much and they are crazily in love with you. So cousin dearest, I love you now and always..

Azuuu as I fondly call you where do i start from? This was not the plan. Who do I run to? Your good memories will continue to linger in my heart forever because it's hard to forget all those memorable days at Enugu. Those were the most happiest times I ever spent with you and your twin brother Chibyke. I remembered the very first time, you guys gave me the shock of my life but there and then I knew this is where my heart belongs. I always look forward to your weekend visit then at Enugu because once you're around you lighten up the place with your rib cracking jokes and some of your crazy stunts. My dearest brother inlaw, my big bros and my friend I can go on and on but I can't because I am truly broken. I will continue to stand strong knowing that you're in a better place where only saints belong. But this your word to me will live forever " Ann, life is too short for sorrows or for you to be unhappy, you're the only one that can make yourself happy, so do whatever that gives you joy and makes you happy". Thanks big bros because this words of yours has seen me through a lot of challenging times.

Where do I even start from? You were an embodiment of peace Uncle Azu, I'm still in shock and in grief.
All I want to say is thank you; thank you for being a role model, thank you for being a guardian and father figure, thank you for the constant laughs whenever we spoke, I'm thankful for all the summer vacations we all got to spend with you.
I remember vividly all our trips to Tesco to get groceries and you teaching me how to shop; you would say “always pick from the back that’s where they hide the new stock”. I remember how you’d always come back home from your hospital shifts and settle down with your okro soup and WWE playing on the TV. I remember all the times you would come back to Nigeria and would have so many stories to share about your “young days”, those were the funniest stories. There are so many memories I have of you I can not fit it all in writing. Thank you for always being present.
They say that there are some who bring light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains, that is you uncle Azu because even in your absence there is still joy and comfort with the memories you left behind. You will always be my uncle Azu and I will always hold onto the memories I have of you.
I know you’re in heaven watching over us and probably perturbed we’re mourning this much but this is a great loss to all of us. Till we meet again in another world/life, I will always love you my dear Uncle Azu.
Love your niece, Nneamaka.

‘Be still and know that I am God’- the words of king David in psalm 46.
Azu nwanne m, your death came as a rude shock. I don’t know what to say. You are greatly loved. You will be missed. Only heaven can say why you were called at this time. All is as God wills it. As long as Christ remains on His throne, we are confident of our end.
Azu nwanne m, may your gentle soul remain in peace. We leave all in the hands of Christ. He is God. It is well.
his Life

A Man of Many Parts!

Medical Man, Likita, Zubby, Mgborogwu, Sir Wilcox,  Numcy as he's fondly called by friends and family. He lived an adventurous life of fulfillment, with joy and fun.

In his presence, there's never a dull moment as he's full of jokes and wisecrackers. He's a man that pursues excellence in all his endeavors and would always encourage and inspire others to attain the same.

A humanitarian per excellence, he always wants to see Everyone around him to have some succour and hence will always give to the needy regardless of whom they are or where they come from.

A man of immense humility who identifies himself with the rich and the poor, the literate and the illiterate, all with the same equanimity. His philosophy in life is work hard, play hard, enjoy life to the fullest and respect for all.

Fondly remembered for his ever gap toothed smile and belly full laughter that lightens up any gathering.

Indeed, he's a man of many parts, and will forever be missed!
