There goes the Pillar, the Bridge Builder, the Shining Star, the Superman and the Man of God, as humble as Moses in the Bible.
That was Engineer Anietie Joseph John Etukudoh.
Truly, truly, Anietie nte Abasi?

I recall back in the day, when his late Eldest brother, Etukudoh (Gabriel), in his discussion about him, particularly his future, outstanding brilliance and talents said, “if Anietie were to be given the opportunity to come over to the United States of America, not even the sky would limit him.”
Well he didn’t even step into the US when he started displaying the talents the Almighty God deposited in him. His exceptional achievements are there for all to see.
His legacy lives on.
He was a big umbrella for the entire Mkpok Community and when his Father in heaven called him to be with him, he bowed out peacefully and gracefully.
Who are we to query God?
I still hear the echo of ‘My Sisterrr!!!!

Sanga sung, de ye Obong My Dear Brother.

DADDY, A QUINTESSENTIAL PATRIARCH
A quintessential and iconic patriarch, a father like no other - loving, caring, passionate worshipper and seer. A planner, organiser and tactful leader per excellence. Courageous, bold, fearless and intimidating in personality yet compassionate, philanthropic and graceful in disposition.

Daddy, you are a rare breed, made of stainer stuff. Focused, determined and self-motivated. Little wonder, you rose from insignificance to stardom and from grass to grace.

Grand Pa, words are not enough to comprehensively capture your very essence.
Notwithstanding, my comfort is in the fact that you lived your conviction, served the Lord and passed on peacefully, having blessed your dear children, in-laws and grandchildren.
Adieu, Daddy.

My one and only Uncle,
You always called me Mma Mfon, my Senior Sister.
It still feels like a dream and I wished you had stayed a little longer.
You came, you saw, you conquered.
I'm happy you left fulfilled.
We shall meet in the sweet by and by
Keep on watching over us from above.
Rest on Uncle

Daddy i love you so much, see you soon in heaven, few days to his passing he reminded us again and again about heaven, we will see soon sir. I am assured

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on

The Life and Times of J.J Etukudoh AKA JOE TEXAS

This is not Biography or autobiography.

Joseph John Etukudoh was Born on the 16th of April, 1946. A true definition of greatness, an embodiment of God's vision of changing life's, a pillar to many, a child of God par excellence. His love for God and others was the truly an expression of the scriptures which Says in Rom 5:5 "The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost who is given unto us".
He lived an exemplary life of faith, hope and love. As a young man he faced several adversities from such a young age; losing his own father at a tender age but against all odds he strived and made a success story out of his life. He journeyed from his comfort zone just like Abraham nit knowing exactly what kind of life he would have. He moved to Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Breaking and shattering all glass ceilings and limitations that he confronted. A proof that your background can never put your back on the ground. He worked as an Oil drilling Engineer Baker Hudges Limited, travelling around the world working on offshore oil rigs . His persistence and resilience even when he had little formal education caused him to rise within the ranks of the company earning him the name JOE TEXAS. Joseph John Etukudoh was a helper of men, a lifter during his time at the company he trained several younger engineers to do so much building a legacy after retirement..

What a Man? 
A man who was fearless in face of death, in 2009 he battled several sicknesses, but he lived, he choose to live, after several factors. A man who said in my time of death "i won't disturb anybody, i will just go"  A faith man. A man of great discernment, the bible says a righteous man sees evil afar off and stays clear. This was Joe Texas, He could see trouble afar of and warn against it. A man who continuously lived an inspiring life of sponsoring the gospel, like the son of consolation Barnabas he supported the body of Christ and churches of Christ. He helped many , supported several church building projects and outreaches. He was also a philanthropic, he gave so much that his children wondered and ask "why help so much". The answer was that he knew differently, "GOD BLESSES YOU IN OTHER TO BLESS OTHERS".  Joe Texas was also innovator, constantly pushing himself, after conquering the engineering field. He decided what next. He went into the Hospitality Industry building and furnishing one of Eket's finest hotels; ROSEBOOM HOTELS AND RESORTS LIMITED.A fine establishment which is a home away from home.

A man of astute discipline, excellence and passion for his children and family. He married an amazing wife Mrs. Comfort Joseph Etukudoh who birthed 8 children. Training every single one of them to the highest levels of education. There is a saying that a success without a successor is a failure, Joseph John Etukudoh is a true success, a true definition of what it means to have lived a beautiful life. He inspired, molded a generation that would continously affect the world. Not forgetting to mention, He was preacher of the gospel. His voice could echo loud amongst many people, he inspired many to serve God in his time.

" A champion is not someone who wins a competition, rather a champion is someone who wins for others".

THANK YOU ENGR. JOSEPH JOHN ETUKUDOH FOR BEING OUR CHAMPION.
