Okugo, my darling husband, the cold hands of death snatched you from us.

Okugo, my darling husband, the cold hands of death snatched you from us. 

What do you want me to do now? 

My life without you leaves me with a deep hole that cannot be filled.

So many people admired the incredible love and kindness that you showed me for these forty five and half years. 


Your gentle, quiet spirit, and your desire to help and support all that came your way, endeared you to many. You were like a shelter to many people. You had 4 biological children, but you also had so many other people who considered you to be a father.

My Lord and my God, I cannot ask you why, but you have left a deep hole in my heart. 

Hubert, you have been my soulmate, my husband, my lover, my confidant, my helper, my sustainer, my adviser, my prayer partner, my teacher . 

I watched you struggling to live. If it were in your own power you would not have died. You left me without any final words. I never suspected that you would never come back to the house again. ‘A big tree has fallen and all the birds are scattered in the forest. 

I have searched for one good reason why you left us but I could not find one. You were snatched from us by the cold hand of death.The whole Christian community that know you prayed, fasted, and cried to God for you, but it did not happen like we wanted. 

What else can I say? We prayed that God would do a miracle and give you back to us as a birthday present , but instead He decided to celebrate your birthday with you.


What else can I say but to surrender to you God, but my heart is heavy. It’snot easy, but I will trust in your promises. God, you have given me your promise of guiding me through this new and unfamiliar path, to brighten the darkness and smooth out the road ahead. God, you promised never to leave me nor forsake me. I am holding onto you.


Okugo my love, sleep on and take your rest; lay down your head upon your saviors breast. We love you, but Jesus loves you best.

GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT , GOODNIGHT ! We will meet some day to part no more.
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART.

Uche your darling wife.

I could  remember after the death of my late husband, there was no hope l was chased out from a house which l and my children lives in uncompleted building. God used him Dad Hubert and his beautiful wife  to wiped away my tears by paying a new department for l and my children. Gave me some properties, still his love and caring extend by giving my son scholarship. peaceful thought and advice you do shared with me. Mummy will sent some beautiful clothes to give you when coming back to Nigeria for me. I Don't know that's the last seen. Death has really done bad to me, but in all we give thanks to God. Still now l can't believe is like a dream whenever l take a look of your pictures l shades tears RIP Lovely Dad For Ever in Our heart.

TRIBUTE ON BEHALF OF LATE MAZI HUBERT OKUGO NWOKOLO- Goddy Igboko

TRIBUTE ON BEHALF OF LATE MAZI HUBERT OKUGO NWOKOLO


As we mark the passing on to Greater Glory of our late cousin and friend, our prayer is that Almighty God will grant his soul eternal rest in his Divine kingdom. 


Late Mazi (Engr) Hubert Okugo Nwokolo,  to the best of our knowledge lived a Gracious life during his period of abode on Mother Earth. He was a True family man, Consummate, Dependable and Religious. 


At the work place, he readily applied his profound intellect and energies to the tasks at hand. He never used his office or position to make quick, filthy money, and he never lost focus. In other social spaces, he had a 3600 vision, and always acted with the big picture as his backdrop. 


Mazi Hubert had good character, integrity and sincerity. He had carriage but was not brash. On critical issues, he did not wait for who will say it first by being nice, but rather preferred to always take the path of fairness and righteousness. One other thing he did not exhibit was fear – that worst enemy one can ever have to face. He rather opted to be on the side of the qualitative minority and always stood successfully against much larger quantitative majorities without moral authority.


At Baptism,  Mazi Hubert received the vital Power of new life in Christ, and this sustained him at all the various stages of his life’s sojourn and energized him whenever he needed to confront Man’s foes comprising the devil and his cohort of fallen angels. Upon retirement from regular work program, he threw himself into Church activities and enjoyed each moment of this phase of his life.


Mazi Hubert was easily Honest and Resolute and always stood up to oppose injustice and was ever ready to damn the consequences arising therefrom and could not be intimidated. For these and a lot more reasons, Mazi Hubert will be sorely missed. But the Scriptures tell us that our Time is in God’s Hands. So we are comforted.


We therefore ask Almighty God to grant eternal rest to his kind and gentle soul. We equally pray to God to grant Uche,  their children and grand children the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. And may all of us who grieve the demise of Hubert work proactively to ensure that at the end of our stay in this mortal world, we shall all meet Hubert again in Heaven at the Great Fellowship


ADEIU to a Perfect Gentleman.  REST IN PEACE until we meet to part no more.

Tribute from George Nwokolo- Hubert's Brother

Shared by Ugo Nwokolo on January 26, 2021
Israel wanted a leader and they asked God for one.
Every man born of woman has a leader who usually is the father.
Hubert's father and mine too died 1971 directly after the Biafran war.
The elder brother to Hubert Ben died fighting in the war and the mantle fell on Hubert to become the father figure.
He was also called upon to come and do his scholarship at Leicester,UK by Shell BP. He was a student as well as our leader.
He sent us school fees, pocket money and took charge of all bills. 
He actually started taking care during the war when he got into the World council of Churches through his Christian beliefs and when common salt was no longer common,he made sure we had a fairly good supply of the commodity.
When he came back from his studies  to charge fully as the father,he did a great job at it.
Those things our father hoped and prayed for Hubert brought to fruition. These were tough jobs that father couldn't do.
You always knew Hubert was having problems when he uttered that phrase 'A man and things' 
This again is when Hubert changed gears to move further faster. Well he got married to his adorable wife and had his lovely children. 
I am forgetting the grand kids. He fathered them and us the siblings and whoever came his way home and abroad, very, very effectively. He was very intelligent, hardworking and peace Loving.
As covid 19 raged on he always assured me that they were praying for us in Nigeria because we have no facilities to fight back.I don't know how this one came about. 
It should not be for Hubert. Just like a dream. It is for him and he is gone. A man and things is gone. Bye my good friend and brother till we meet to part no more. Amen.
