The Daddy!
May your deeply cherished and gentle spirit never depart from us in Jesus' name. Amen
  • 79 years old
  • Born on July 27, 1938 in Ajalli, Anambra, Nigeria.
  • Passed away on July 4, 2018 in Enugu, Enugu, Nigeria.

This memorial website was created in memory of Daddy, Mazi Chima H. O. Ofong, who slipped into eternity on July 4, 2018.  A greatly loved Husband, Father( & Father-in-law), Grand-Father, Brother, Uncle and Friend; the quintessential gentleman, pillar of integrity and bulwark of support to all that met him in life. 

Daddy, it remains incredulous that we are at this juncture where we have our hearts overflowing with fond memories of your tireless love but unable to hear the rich timbre of your voice or be enveloped in your characteristic warm bear hug.

You are sorely sorely missed daddy. You are painfully missed each passing minute.

You remain the essence of your family, Daddy, you remain the flavour in us.

We all miss you interminably.

Dear Sir, you raised incredible children and they will carry on your great name. I met you just once and I am honoured that in my lifetime, I got to know such an honourable gentleman. May your soul Rest in Perfect Peace. Nekwu, Ngozi and Kene, pls take heart and be strong for Mum. May our good Lord be with you all especially at this time. God bless

We often say that the hour of death cannot be forecast and this hour we always imagine would be in a distant future.. Mazi , you have been a blessing to everyone you came across including me and my entire family. May your wonderful soul rest in Our Lord!

Rest in peace Sir. Met you once but will never forget your aura of simplicity. May God continue to strengthen the family you left behind. No doubt they will always do you proud.

I cannot find the appropriate words to describe your personal relationship with me while you were around. For 14 years, I drank from your well of wisdom. I learnt from your wealth of experience. Today, my heart is overflowing from your endless love shown towards me during all the years that our paths crossed by divine arrangement. I was privileged to see at close quarters your unquantifiable passion for Novotel Port Harcourt. Your dexterity in handling issues will sorely be missed. Uncle Chima, you are truly a good man in who there was no guile. I thank God I met you in this journey of life. Your fond memories will always remain with me. My prayer is that the Lord will comfort and uphold the wife, children and family members you left behind in Jesus Name

I remember the first time I mentioned my dear friend's by surname to my father. Miles away from Enugu and with a nostalgic smile on his face, he had nothing but good things to say about Mazi Chima Ofong and they hadn't seen each other in eons! He 'IS' truly a good man. I thank God for the precious gift of his presence at all the special celebrations in the past few years. May God give the Ofongs the strength and grace to bear the pain of his physical absence. We will not despair! We will all meet again. Rest well Uncle.

Daddy! It's still a huge shock that you are no more. You were so full of life...kind hearted, more than a perfect gentleman and always ready to listen. You were a strong pillar of support to your family especially young Muna and will be sorely missed by all who knew you. I for sure will miss the great conversations and excellent culinary skills. Ngozi,Chinekwu and Kene.. May God give you the heart to bear this huge loss. May His Angels surround you all at this time and know that my prayers are with you all and your Mum. May the soul of Mazi Chima Ofong rest in Perfect Peace. Amen.

The loss of a dear relative is always excruciatingly painful. The fond memories however assuage to some degree the emptiness of the loss. Ngozi dear I have no doubt you have a lot of these memories to carry you on...please take heart...the Good Lord will comfort you and members of your family...concern yourself with the things that will continue to make your dad proud as he watches over you...May he rest on I pray.

You were indeed a perfect gentle man, soft spoken, very hard working and a man full of ideas. Rest in peace. God had already consoled your adorable wife and your wonderful children.

Dearest Uncle Chima, It’s so hard to believe that you’ve transitioned to heaven. The void left by your departure is palpable, and you are sorely missed. May God grant all of us mourning your absence the fortitude to bear this huge loss, but particularly may He tightly envelope Aunty Nky, Ngozi, Chinekwu and Kene with his unfailing comfort and grace during this difficult time. Rest on in perfect peace Uncle Chima

For wether we die;we are the Lords, for whether we live;we are the Lords, for weather therefore we live or die;we are the Lords. Rest in the Lord Bro Chima. You will be sorely missed. I will miss you most especially.
