    TRIBUTE TO A LEGEND
   There is a man I have come to love,a man who cared,a man who shared,a man who knew life,a man with a wonderful family. He was a father,a husband,a grand father,an amazing father-in-law,and now he is gone.
   Tete,despite the pain that lingers in the core of my being. I've got to try and let go. As the tears rolls down and as I seek peace to stop the pain,I pray to God to grant you peace as well. I am happy to call you my dad and am proud to be your daughter-in-law. I will miss your jokes,your laughter, I will miss you calling me Ada'm, I will miss so many things about you.
  Tete your love and peaceful memories are still our guide.
Rest well my precious father-in-law

  TRIBUTE TO MY HERO
 Love leaves a memory no one can steal,but death leaves a memory no one can heal. Its sad to know that my dad left us,but again it's a loving memory for me when I think about the life of my dad and all he did for my siblings and I and the good memories we spent together.
  Your death left a scar in our hearts but your legacy will stand in our life. You were my hero,you were the most courageous and resourceful man. We will miss you dad.
Farewell to an icon.
Farewell to a great doctor.
Farewell to an amazing father.

I ‘ll always remember him as a kind , thoughtful man , he went out of his way to help so many people including my family and he left a great legacy . I will always say no one was better at telling jokes in the way he does.I feel so lucky to have known him so well. Thank you for all your contributions to humanity. You will be greatly missed by all!

Uncle,
You came, you saw, you conquered. I'm glad to have known you for most of my life. Your love for knowledge, the national geographic and books will never be forgotten nor the malaria jabs which got us back on our feet. Thank you for everything. May your soul rest in peace. Till we meet again.

Eheh! Eheh! Every time giri_giri_giri... Those were his exact words on numerous occasions when i'd bump into him in my traditional way of jumping down the stairs. Indeed fond memories,

Your loud laughs from deep within, your relentlessness to keep an atmosphere of cheer and bright with jokes and short stories of your childhood and growing up. Your open love and ever welcoming arms to everyone of us your children (as we have a rich heritage of having many fathers and mothers growing up).

No doubt, no contest, you did live a great life touching and inspiring many and very importantly embraced Christ.

I love you daddy and I will indeed really miss you.

ADIEU Dr. Chika Ogbonna till we meet at the feet of our Father (Jehovah)

Rest in Perfect Peace...

From Richard, Richelle, Toluwanimi & Chika (Jnr) Ogbonna.

Tete, I feel an overwhelming sense of loss and pain at this moment of your passing on. You saw, your fought. You overcame.
You radiated the greatness and generosity of your spirit. You were a brilliant, powerful Light. I experienced your kindness, selfless love and service to me, all family members and everyone that crossed your path. No words can express how much I and my entire family love and appreciate you. Tete, you live in our hearts. I stand in the knowledge and I am consoled that the ALMIGHTY, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent LORD of this wondrous Creation is in absolute charge of everything concerning you. Tete, you bear the Holy Power and Love of the ALMIGHTY FATHER in your heart, the very core of your being, in your spirit, and HE, the ALMIGHTY holds you firmly in HIS MIGHTY HAND. It is too painful to say goodbye. Ever green is our memory of you.
MAY THE LORD ALMIGHTY FATHER BE WITH YOU.

D-Doc, my doc, you were a rare one, a special one. So cosmopolitan, a humane human being. I was your patient in your clinic in Mokola hill. I was Amelia's and Ninette's VicePrincipal in St Louis. I was your adorable wife's secret admirer. On all fronts you were simply wonderful. My joy is that you have played your role on mother earth as of the Lord to deserve the angelic welcome from the hosts of heaven. May your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace .

You remain an essential part in my rationalisation formation process. You’re epitome of rationality; great thinker and a motivator. We that came close to your humble human ways experience you greatly and deeply. The richness of ideals and your special humanity will continue to query my Being. We thank God for that special nature you represented

Dear Dr Ogbonna, the news of your demise was unexpected. So sad!
You were a reliable brother and friend to my family.
We often had thoughts of meeting you and your family after moving to the east. We will never forget your kindness and care especially when we had challenging health issues.
Our warmest regards to your family especially your wife and Danny boy.

Dearest Doctor, you were simply a rare kind of man. You were indeed prepared by God for the career path you bestrode like a colossus. You were an embodiment of what a true doctor should be, humble, kind, compassionate, honest and extremely hardworking.

I cannot forget those great moments we shared together. The wide age gap between us meant nothing to you. We conversed like mates. You were your ever lively self and led the conversation most times, narrating major world events, personalities and history, even local ones. And I learned quite a few things from you.

May the Lord in his mercy remember all your good deeds, forgive any shortcomings on your part and reward you with an eternal rest in his presence.

Rest in peace amazing doctor!

I received with great shock, but with gratitude to God for an impactful life of service, the death of Dr Ogbona. As a former neighbour, my children were friends of his children, and a couple of times when I went to pick them up, I met a man with a large heart, along with his amiable wife, whose doors were opened to all. He was a great physician and a very devoted family man. His able wife must be no doubt devastated. Yes, it's a great loss, but be comforted by the many lives he touched and the reminiscences of the wonderful time you had together. God will comfort you. Hold on to Him. He is husband to the widow. When I lost my husband seven years ago, I did not know I could go on but God helped me. May the soul of the departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. May God preserve his legacy and comfort the entire family in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Rest in Peace Sir. The few times we met or spoke portrayed you as a humble, decent and affectionate husband and father. May God almighty grant you eternal rest. Amen
Posted by Enoma Odigie on March 10, 2021
This really came as a shock. I know people grow old but still we wish our parents could remain with us. I knew Dr Ogbonna to be a good and successful father and medical doctor. I remember he used to pick me up from school occasionally with his daughters Amelia and Ninette. I wish I still had the opportunity to thank him for what he did back then. May God comfort all especially his family and grant his soul a peaceful rest. Sleep gently Papa.

I remember growing up in Jericho Ibadan. Being family friends with Dr Chika's children, my siblings and I visited their home frequently to play. One thing was clear and that was the fact that Dr Chika Ogbonna was a fine gentleman, easy going and he loved his family deeply. Very generous and accommodating. He was a doctor of repute and a man of integrity. You will sure be missed Sir . May God grant your soul eternal rest and grant the entire family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Amen
Posted by Sam Id on March 10, 2021
May his gentle soul remain in perfect peace with our Lord and may our heavenly father give his lovely family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

A rare Star very unique in its radiance as He pleasantly manifested to the honour of His Creator; is withdrawn for Beyond Earthly. While we stand in awe and amazement of our common experiences with His Being; we thank God for this special life and time of Dr Chika Ogbonna. May God grant Him Eternal Bliss in the Luminous Kingdom of the Blessed.

Amen

All glory to God in all things....
Rest in Peace Dear Uncle...

Happened to have heard so many awesome things about daddy and had the rare occasion of meeting him just once. All I can say is, daddy was a very noble man, a great motivator who always wanted people around him happy even if, it was at his expense.
Daddy you will be greatly missed but my joy is having had the opportunity to have met you and enjoyed your company, advice and funny side.
Rest on sir...

Dear Uncle Chika,

Thank you so much for your love and support. I have very fond memories of me and my siblings with our mom visiting your family house. Of you taking care of us. I still have the scars on my forehead (a thing of pride:). May the Almighty God guide your spirit home. You have accomplished your destiny on earth and helped countless people, my family included. You will never be forgotten. Thank you from the hearth of my heart. May God continue to bless you always. Lovingly, Amarachi

I never got the chance to meet you, but I know you were a great uncle, father and husband. From all of us in Seychelles we share your grief and pass on our condolences.
Wishing upon you all many blessings and strength for the future.

My dear uncle, words can’t express how I feel about you going home to be with the Lord. I’m however comforted by the generous, kind, and gracious life you lived.

Thank you for all of those years of helping our family when my mother was so worried about our health. Your comforting words, open doors, and free medical attention, nurturing us back to health when each of us fell sick is something that amazes and inspires me till today.

I loved seeing you smile every time you saw me. Thank you so much for giving me such wonderful memories. I love you uncle. Rest in power Dr. Chika! ❤️❤️

My ever cheerful uncle,
I am still bewildered by the fact that you are no more in the land of the living. Your kind words of encouragement and love towards me and my family. You were so accommodating, generous, full of songs and stories I will never forget. I love you uncle but God loves you more. I rejoice in the fact that in your last days you gave your life to Christ and was a committed Christian.
Rest In Peace. My great great Uncle.
Love Egbichi BlessingAnyikwa

My Dear Uncle, rest in perfect Peace! I wish I had gotten to know you more! I remember that you reminded me so much of my dad. I also remember how kind-hearted, level-headed, and peaceful you were; I appreciate you for that. You were truly a unique gem. Your Niece, Nnenna ❤️
Posted by Andrew Adepoju on March 10, 2021
So shocking to hear about your passing. Dr. Ogbonna, though not my biological father but a father to me nonetheless. I spent a lot of time with and around him growing up. I remember all the errands Christian and I ran for him, all the life lessons he shared.
I was not around when you took ill, so I will always remember you as that vibrate, full of energy, workaholic, great provider, always studying, great family man and dad that you were.
May your soul Rest In Peace.
Posted by Seun Kentebe on March 10, 2021
I always looked forward to talking to you on the phone and in person; your ability to be cerebral and funny is one for the books. Will miss you telling me to send you Cows and Horses and calling me your Son.

Rest in peace and power, Daddy'm.

Dr. Chika, when my father passed away when I was 4 years old, my dear mother would bring each one of us to your house whenever we were sick and you would treat us for free and nurse us back to health. If I could see you now I’ll say thank you for all your help towards my dear mother and to all of us in the Igboegwu Family. You’ll forever be missed and I’ll always remember you as the great man that you are,full of cheer with a beautiful wife and who has the most beautiful children. Rest in power uncle. I love you!
