Innocent Emeka Agomuoh was the third child in a family of seven born to Mr and Mrs Sylvester Nwoko Agomuoh of blessed memory. He was born in Kafanchan Nigeria on April 11th 1956.He was raised a very good Catholic  Christian with very humble beginnings. His elementary school was at St Peter Claver Catholic School in Kafanchan. He attended Mbaise Boys High School under My Nwogu as principal . Every student that went through that school during that era know exactly what I mean in terms of discipline. Innocent earned his undergraduate degree at Washington State University and his graduate degree from University of Michigan . He was a student leader while at Washington. Inno like I call him was hired from school by General Motors. He left GM  after several years for Ford Motors in search of greener pastures. Until his accident in 2012 he was a project manager at Ford Motors. Inno was a man of his words,an eloquent speaker,good adviser,hard worker, always wore a smile despite the ups and downs of life.He was a loving husband to Janet,an excellent dad to Nikki and Dee,and wonderful brother to us all. He loved God and man.He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We thank God for sharing him with us. So long until we meet to part no more..

""Dee Innocent (which is how I love to call you), you will forever be missed! Your death is like a dream to me but no doubt that you are in a better place. I am struggling to write this tribute because I had called your phone to inform you about my hubby's graduation and only to learn about your death. You imparted a lot of people that crossed your path. You and your siblings were a HUGE inspiration and encouragement (physically, spiritually and financially)when my dad (Linus Unegbu "aka Teacher") SUDDENLY passed on August 14, 2015. Myself and my family will miss you but we live with the sweet memories that we all shared. Your celebration of life yesterday put a closure to me that indeed you have transitioned to glory. And for the entire Agomouh's family, "YOUR BEST DAYS ARE AHEAD" and I can testify to that and know that God will carry you guys on His Eagles' wings. Shalom!""

"Dr.Obioma Agomuoh & Siblings,
If there were days when human faces should be bright (beaming with smile), it is not when dearly beloved ones are being interred to "mother earth.
Though we are privileged to see the event taking place live. However, in our veins run feelings of sadness akin to yours because our own Innocent is no more
But, we are comforted by the fact that he lived a selfless life. He served God and humanity to the best of his ability. This being so, we  hope to meet  him at the feet of our Saviour on the resurrection morning.
May our good God comfort and give you the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss."

This tribute was added by John Voymas on 20th May 2016

"My wife and I were driving by the Ford Performing Arts Center this evening and saw a large photo of Innocent on the electronic sign.  My first thought was that he was a featured speaker at an event. He and I had been very active in the Toastmasters Club at the Ford iTek Center where we had both worked at one time. Then I saw that tonight was a wake keeping for Innocent.  Such a shock. He was a good man who cared about so many others. He was there to help whether you were a fellow worker or a fellow member of Toastmasters. Our condolences are with his family and fellow community members."

God Bless you."

"It is still all so surreal to us that Uncle Innocent is no longer here.   It was an honor to pay an official visit to him and his wife less than two weeks before he was taken from us.  It was important to me that Igbo Cultural Association and I officially pay Uncle Innocent and his wife an official visit to let them know how much we appreciate his service to the Igbo community in which we live.  Today that visit means even more to us.  We had the opportunity to recognize one of the heroes of our community in Michigan and say THANK YOU.  His optimism, strength and bright smile could energize and bright up anybody’s day.  We have made frequent visits to Uncle Innocent’s home since the loss of our husband and father and It has had a tremendous impact on our outlook in both our personal and business lives.  Words of wisdom as we call it.  Uncle Innocent possessed a lot of that.  Even after his accident, Uncle Innocent would call me over to chat and I would look forward to those visits, especially his cheerful attitude.  

Over the past few years Uncle Innocent has always been there when we needed him.  He was a great source of wisdom for my brother and I.  He has yet to let us down.  He has been a great friend, uncle and God Father to my father’s family and we will always be grateful for that.  Our family will always be there for Auntie Janet and your kids as you were for us.  

Your journey on earth has come to a sudden end and although we will take our time fighting with a combination of anger and sorrow, we will take solace in the fact that it does not end here.  I will tell you all about it when I see you again.

Rest in Peace

~With Love

Family of Late Honorable Dr. Aloysius Aguwa"

"On behalf of the Ogbe Nneissii Development Association
, USA, Inc, I sympatize with the family of Agomuoh on the death of our brother Innocent Agomuoh. His death brought shock waves in our hearts and indelible marks in our souls. Our members should take solice and belief that all mortals shall die. Innocent as a comtemporary was a wonderful man of virtue and industry, kind hearted and humble. Inno was a founding memeber of the Association and helped lay the foundation in 2007. His passing has created a vaccum that would be hard to fill. Your darling wife Jane as a soul mate took very good care of you while you were recovering from accident, she will miss you indeed; your son, Diala was your pillar and strength;your daughter Nikki was your inspiration and your rising star, your siblings: Obioma, Stella, Clara, Emmanuel and Augustine were your pride. Death has taken a special man of the people. We are consloed that you are going to meet your brother, John and your parents in paradise. We will miss your charm, your charisma, your management skill and ethical approach to business and your relationship with people. We ask God to provide the fortitude to bear the loss of a dear one in a young age. May you rest in peace a man of great repute. We will miss you today and always.

I was so very sad to hear of Innocent's passing.  All of us at Ford know how much Innocent loved you and your children and his family.  He was such a lovely man, always smiling and willing to help others - he always had time and a kind word for others, patience and a twinkle in his eyes.  He was a friend and an inspiration to all of us that he worked with here at Ford.
You are in my heart and prayers, as is Innocent.

Stay safe, Ann Marie"

Innocent was a brother to me and we shared very strong bond and great memories such as the passing of his father, his marriage to Tessy, the birth of Nikki and many more. My family and I are saddened and in deep sorrow for such an untimely death. However, we are encouraged and comforted by the friendship we shared.

"Mbaise Cultural Association of Michigan extends our heartfelt condolence to the entire Agomuoh family and in particular to Mrs. Jane Agomuoh, Diala Agomuoh, Nikki Agomuoh and Dr. Obioma Agomuoh.
We mourn with you on the passing of our brother and friend, Mr. Innocent Emeka Agomuoh. We pray for God’s Grace, Comfort and Strength during this difficult time.

As we mourn, let’s not forget that our beloved brother is in a better place. For the scriptures states in John 14:1-3  “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

As we mourn with family, friends and the entire community, we should never lose sight of our Christian belief which the scripture reminds us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “ In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” We should truly give thanks to God for the wonderful years we shared with a wonderful man and brilliant mind, Mr. Innocent Emeka Agomuoh.

In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. (Abraham Lincoln). Our dear brother, Mr. Innocent Emeka Agomuoh you have fought a good fight and may the good Lord that called you back home grant your soul eternal rest with angels in heaven. Amen

The heartfelt tributes posted so far from friends, family and acquaintances locally and across the world are testimony of what a great, kind, soulful Christian man Innocent was.  Regrettably, I only got to meet both of you after his accident while ushering at St. James.  He exuded warmth and kindness and I could see the strength and love in both of you as you dealt with the challenges he faced.  May God watch over and protect you and your family until the day you're all reunited in God's eternal Kingdom."

"Mrs. Janet

You and Mr. Innocent (My Cat Daddy, My Inno Man), I don't know where to begin, Well I guess I will start by saying that the moment you welcomed me into your home was the happiest day of my life. I say that because I have always thought of you and Mr. Innocent as my second family, and hearing about the sudden passing of a great man brings sadness to my heart.

The moment that he died my heart was torn in two, One side filled with heartache, the other died with him. I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks.

Remembering him is easy, I do it everyday, but missing him is heartache that never goes away. I hold him tightly within my heart and there he will remain. Until the joyous day arrives until we meet again.

Mrs. Janet although God has called his son home, I want you to know that I was honored to have meet someone so full of love, he has taught me to live life to the fullest and never take a day for granted. For that I will be forever grateful.

I am not a person who believes in "FATE" I believe in "FAITH" and I know that it was "FAITH" that brought us together and like I always told Mr. Innocent I will always be here for you no matter what, you are apart of my Life, I LOVE YOU & WILL ALWAYS BE HERE FOR YOU. MR. INNOCENT I BELIEVE YOUR ULTIMATE DREAM HAS COME TRUE, & THAT'S TO WALK AGAIN.

Inno, i spoke with you on the 18th of April 2016, concerning the goings or arrangements of my mother’s burial (your Aunt Mama-nete / Dattiti). I never knew that was our last discussion on earth.
The shock i had after the burial of Datiti on hearing about your passing on on 27th April, 2016 , only Heaven can quantify its gravity on me.
I can’t question God for He knows why and best too. Since He said in Ecclesiastics Chapter 3:1-8 that “To everything there is a season, and time to every purpose under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die......”
My dear Jane, Nikki, Diala and the entire family of Agomuoh, let’s be consoled and be comforted because there is no sorrow our God cannot heal, cure and remove. The bottom point is that Inno has fought a good fight, he is waiting till the resurrection morning when that crown of victory would be given to him.
Until then my lovely Jane, may God Almighty use this period of pain and trial to heal you completely in Jesus Name, Amen.
We are praying for you. Take care and God bless you all.

"A Tribute to One of Our Finest – Innocent Agomuoh

It is with great sadness that Community of Imo State Organizations in Michigan (CISOM) learned of the passing of Hon Innocent Agomuoh.  This loss is deep and shocking to all of us and will be felt by many people in USA, Nigeria and around the world especially those who worked with him over the decades to set the pace for a sustained Igbo-Nigeria Community in Michigan.  It is difficult to convey the depth of sorrow and sadness in our heart when one of our best, most esteemed and irreplaceable personality is gone to be back no more.   We in CISOM grieve with deepest sorrow.  Indeed we have lost one of our finest, and decent pioneer; who distinguished himself as the General Secretary of Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan (ICAM).  

As we say our final goodbye to a man we admired, let us recall the esteemed contributions of the late Agomuo in community building a formidable diaspora community for all in USA and Michigan in particular.  Hon. Innocent Agomuo demonstrated in every step of the way, that he is a civic builder, an amiable father and a husband whose voice always struck the balance when it truly mattered. He had an incredible character in the way he maintained his personal dignity and the way he treated everyone with respect; he was truly an extraordinary human being.  We all love Innocent for these enduring characteristics, patronage, motivation, humility, advice and noble conscience.  His role in the foundation of Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan is very remarkable.  Overall, he stood for us whether it is Imo, Igbo, Nigeria, Africa and or American.  

Time as we have come to see waits for no man. As God has it he will no longer walk on this planet.  A decent flower was plucked from among us.  If anyone doubts this aphorism, the death of this amiable man represents a sad and striking example of this truism. It is indeed a sad moment for us all.  

CISOM sympathizes with the Agomuo family, Mbaise Cultural Association of Michigan, Imo Community USA, Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan and the larger Nigerian community for the passing of this pleasant and eminent compatriot.  We stand to mourn one of our finest and most decent.  We pray God to give you all the strength and fortitude to deal with this unfortunate incident and the grace to go through the enormous challenges of this time.  May the gentle soul of this great patriot and friend – Hon Innocent Agomuo rest in perfect peace - AMEN!  Adieu!

On behalf of Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan (ICAM), we wish to express our heartfelt condolences with sincerity to the family of late Mr. Innocent Emeka Agomuoh, whose glorious presence passed by in April 19, 2016.

We begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived and that your life gave the Igbo community and Nigerian community at large the memories too beautiful to forget. You are a well accomplished individual in all aspect of life and a greater Leader in our community.

Innocent, life is the greatest gift that God has given us; however, Death is only a bridge towards external life with God. Certainly, heaven is rejoicing for your soul has finally reached his true home.

In this time of bereft, the Igbo community wants to share her deepest sympathy to Agomuoh’s family.

May God continue to comfort and give the entire family the strength and great fortitude to carry on such a profound loss.

Hon/Chief/Dr. Ikenna Fortune Duru

"To Our ladyJane,

Your husband was a  man of peace, It makes sense that GOD needs him more. Calling him home to shield him from the changing world. Rest in the bossom of the LORD where goodness abides and sin has no place.  We will meet you soon one day in that glorious place where Jesus is the light; where the services of the sun and the moon will no longer be required. Where we all will be awed by the presence of our Lord and all tears will be wiped away. I believe this with my whole existence. "You came, You impacted lives and now You have gone to rest with the Lord. The hole you left cannot be filled. The scars will always be there, but the Hope that we will see again at the last day is the strength that will keep us going. In the end, there is no end! Live goes on. "He was truly a man of God,an epitome of courage.So desirous to know God the more.Very outstanding when it comes to things about God.I lack the appropriate words to describe your person with.I am so convinced that you served God with all your life. And am convinced that the God you served dedicatedly will reward you by granting you eternal rest with him.And his presence will always remain with the loved ones you left behind.Keep resting Brother, Adieu

From Stanley and Ijeoma Okoye"

"Dear Agomuoh Family,

I shrieked over the phone like dying lion when I had the news; just few months ago I had from him, he encouraged me and cheered me up like a father. This few moments will always be remembered.

Indeed, life is not how you want it but definitely what God wants for you. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. It is well.

May Our Lord comfort and sustain his family, his wife and children now and always. May God Almighty keep him safe resting in perfect peace till resurrection day, Amen.!!!

"Dear Agomuoh Family,
I first met Innocent when I joined the iTalk Toastmaster club in 2005.   From the first time I met Innocent to now, I remember the incredible energy he had, positive infectious spirit and his love of his family.  I have thought often of Innocent since the car accident and miss seeing his brilliant smile at work.  My heartfelt condolences on your loss.  I know without a doubt that Innocent is now sharing that smile, energy and passion from above.  He will always be with us as he certainly impacted everyone he met in a positive manner.  I consider myself very fortunate to have known him."
