ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in loving memory of our dearly beloved  father, husband, grandfather, uncle, cousin, inlaw and brother Sir Maxwell Egbukole, 89, born into the royal family of Eze Egbukole on  October 29, 1931 in Egbu Owerri Imo State, passed on to glory on March 7, 2021. 

A  devoted Christian and a Knight of St. Christopher in the Anglican communion of the Diocese of Egbu. Our beloved Dad had a meritorious teaching career that spanned many years until his retirement in 1989.

A humble unassuming, disciplined and selfless gentleman who loved humanity, loved peace and loved his family. 

May your gentle soul continue to rest in the Lord. You will forever be in our hearts.

I have always used you as a reference point when it comes to heading and leading a family. You were a shining example of how one should live. It was sad to hear that you were no more.

It was well with your soul, it will remain well with your soul as you continue to rest. Rest In Peace. You were a rare good man. Rest on!

It is in sober times like this that we remember the words of a preacher

"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the

heaven; a time to be born, a time to die".
Your timeline attests that you were truly a teacher and instructor to

all, peaceful, truthful and you showed unalloyed love to all. A man with

principles of fairplay and few words that produces effective outcomes.
On behalf of the Ibe’s family, we pray that the Holy Spirit befriend the

Egbukole’s family in this time of grief and thereafter.
May the Almighty Lord grant his soul perpetual Rest.

Dabere Agam-Ibe.

Our Dearest Pa Sir Maxwell Benjamin Egbukole,
Sadly we did not get to meet while alive, but from the testimonies from all your children - Pastor Okechukwu Egbukole to be specific, it shows that you were a Godly, compassionate, energetic and enterprising man who lived a purposeful life to the glory of God and that of humanity. We take solace in the fact that you lived a life of selfless service in the Church, your families and the entire community.

And to Pastor Okechukwu and his siblings left behind by Papa, I want you to take solace in the fact that Papa came to this world alone and he has left alone. This is the inexorable law of nature and we have to muster courage, strength and fortitude to accept the will of God as believers. Believers like Papa does not die, they only transit from mortality into immortality. I pray to God to bestow on all the beloved ones Papa left behind strength, energy and comfort needed during this period of Papa's demise. It is my prayer that God Almighty will give peace and tranquility to the departed soul of Papa.

The name of the Lord will be honored, souls will be brought into the kingdom of God through the celebration of life of Papa both before, during and after the funeral ceremony.

ADIEU!!! Pa Egbukole and Rest in Peace in the bosom of God in Jesus name. Amen.

Our dad, Pa Max Egbukole was without a doubt a role model, mentor and lover of God and he will be greatly missed by my friend, Okey, his family and all lovers of good. I can tell this by the immaculate character of his son, my friend Okechukwu. The goodnews is that he fought a good fight, he finished his course and kept the faith. There is laid for him a crown of righteousness by our faithful Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The Lord continue to grant his family, the church, community and all of us who benefited from his quality life the fortitude to bear his loss in Jesus' Name.

Daddy When I saw you first, I desired to have your kind of health when I grow old. You were so coordinated. We rejoice in the Lord knowing that You lived a long life with Christ Jesus in view. My Love increased the more with the testimonies my younger Sister Blessing Okechukwu Egbukole shared on how you and Mumy were so much in love with each other. You came to this World to put smiles on the face of every one around you. We believe that we will meet on the resurrection morning. I would have loved to see you in heaven with that your papa's cap you love putting on. Good Night Grandpa.

Pa Mark ,You have gone to be with our creator after a fulfilled life . He was a mentor and gentleman per excellence remembering his days at Holy Ghost College treating everyone like his own kids. Indeed he has finished the race and passed the baton to Ma Abi and the seven soldiers of Christ and their children. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May his soul rest in the bosom of the Lord and may God console and heal the family.

Pa Egbukole, may your soul continue to rest in the Lord. I was privileged to have met you during your visits to London. You delivered an inspirational father's day sermon on one of your visits to our church in Enfield. You were also a loving and supporting father in law to my friend Chinwendu, Bro Iheanyi's wife. You were that father in law that every wife wants to have. You will be greatly missed Papa. Go well Sir.

You are a good man, meek and gentle, I remember the day I came to visit your home for the first time, you gisted me and told me things that have helped me grow academically, Rest in peace man of integrity, rest in peace great man till we meet on that glorious day.

Tribute to God

In 1993 I got to meet Npa Maxwell Egbukole, in my year 1 at FUTO.
A gentle man to the core, that threated us as his sons. One culture I will never forget was the consistency of waking everyone by 6am everyday for morning devotion. It was a new lesson to me then.
A very consistent man that loves God both in good times and in challenging times. A role model for fatherhood.

Adieu Npa and rest in bosom our Lord Jesus Christ.

Farewell, Sir Maxwell Benjamin Egbukole (KSC). May God's perpetual light continue to shine on you as you lie in wait in a calm and undisturbed repose.

A time in the near future when all who have hoped in God will breath His warmth and purity. An endless time when wickedness will be in chains and swords rust forever.

"Nda Mark" as we fondly called him growing up , is a man I always admired from my age distance. He had an amiable personality that commanded instant respect. Besides usually greeting him properly where ever I saw him I had just one close meeting with him in 2001. He sent a message that he wanted to come and see me and I responded by rather going to see him. The knowledge I gained from that meeting has been rewarding to me till date. Most importantly I am very happy that I fulfilled the only request he made of me that day.
Adieu Sir !
May Your Gentle Soul Rest in Perfect Peace.

Adieu to a man of uncommon faith- An eternal optimist.
Daddy, I never imagined a day like this will come. That we would bid you farewell as you depart this side of eternity. Cast not your talent to the dust; you wrote to me once and again. A man of few words whose deeds, stance on issues and values were so eloquent. God lifts up the poor out of the dust and dung hill and sets him up amongst princes you will sound out of the scriptures. You thought us the dignity of hard work and uprightness . I never saw you despair or forlorn-not once. Your uncommon faith and positive outlook to life I will forever admire in awe. Amiable and easy to get along with , you were a perfect definition of what it means to be a gentleman. I never saw you tell a lie. You lived on auto forgiveness and had zero capacity for hate or malice and never rememered an offense nor the offender. A man who in simple and quiet manner told the truth at all times and in all situations irrespective of whose ox is gored. A man blessed with the spirit of wisdom and endowed with a photographic memory who could recount events and reel out names of places and people with astonishing detail irrespective of the length of years. A man who detests been a bother or concern to anyone and did not want anyone to be inconvenienced on his behalf. Even as you lay on death bed you kept a positive spirit; never flinching, never disturbed but always encouraging everyone around. I love you Daddy and salute and stand in awe of your uncommon courage and genial spirit that though peaceful was ever unbeaten, unbroken and unbowed. As you take your place amongst the sea of heavenly hosts on those pearly and heavenly grandstands sandwiched by a great cloud of witnesses urging us on, permit that I bid you farewell with the words of W.B Yeats on where man's glory begins and ends. Daddy, we rejoice that you are safely tucked in now with God's loving arms around you, for our glory dad was that we had you as our father and such a friend. We ll see you again at the feet of our Lord Jesus. Accept my highly esteemed tributes. Adieu !!

Your 5th Son

Everybody is expected to die one day, after all we are all mortals but I didn’t expect yours to be so soon. Grandpa you lived a fulfilled life, you had a loving wife, wonderful children and good grandchildren that stayed with you till the end. When I heard of your passing away I couldn’t cry much, because I know you have gone to meet our heavenly father, who loves you more.
I had a wonderful Grandpa, his smile was made of sun shine his heart was solid gold. I know you are still with us in our hearts and you are seeing us from where you are. I will remember all our good memories shared and many more.
I love you grandpa and pray that your soul shall rest in peace.

Tribute to my Loving, Great and Caring Father In-law
It’s just like you went on a journey but by each passing day it dawns on me that you are actually gone forever.
I was so grieved by the news of your demise, however it is better to rest in the Lord. You were kind, loving, humble, forgiving and caring, more so a perfect gentle Father in-law you were. I will always thank God for a beautiful life well spent and forever cherish the family legacies you shared with me.
Sleep on Dad till we meet at the feet of Jesus.

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAR FATHER
Daddy, you may have left us physically but the impact you made on me are deep prints on sands of my life. Your words resonates hope, possibilities and confidence in my formative years, till your last moments on earth
A confidence that transcends visible realities, filled with faith that propelled I and my siblings to secondary and tertiary institutions against all odds. I still remember telling Dad that I would like to be an engineer as little boy. In your characteristic manner you assured me that the sky is no limit to our plans in life. You assured us and ensured that we were all in very good schools at the time, despite the toll this sacrifice took on you and Mum.
Though this was no mean task but God helped you to walk the talk, especially seeing to our tertiary studies at a very financially challenging period; you kept faith to see I and all my siblings through school.
We are really blessed to have you as a father, a true guide and mentor. We learnt humility, you taught us love, and countless godly virtues .Your married life with Mum is a practical family school and a great example of a Christian marriage to which we strive to emulate.
Daddy, we never saw you sick from the time we were young till just a short while before your demise, not once did you visit the hospital for any medical support, God Himself kept you. To HIM alone is all glory! However even in your very frail state, your attitude of strength, faith and hope exhumed in your words of courage and positivity that contradicts the physical reality. At home and hospital you stoutly affirmed to us ‘NOTHING MEEKA’ a word of assurance and hope to us that “NOTHING WILL HAPPEN”. Rightly so, nothing happened but a smooth transition of a blessed man unto eternal glory, where a crown of glory is awaiting.
In the words of Paul you fought a good fight, you finished your course – just a few weeks to your exit you reaffirmed your love to your Maker, as you rededicated your life to Christ when we prayed together. What a great Joy! This was our last meeting, and with full assurance of faith we are excited that you REST in eternity with GOD ALMIGTHY.
We love you Dad and will miss you greatly, but God loves you more.
Rest in Peace
Uche Egbukole - Son

Grandpa you were so loving and caring. You told us a lot of stories, often took us to the children’s leisure centre and sometimes picked us from school. I also remember how you taught us how to sing the hymn when you visited. I am thankful for the time I spent with you, I got to know some of your favourite activities such as exercising to keep fit, eating popcorn and watching Judge Judy etc. I have fun memories of you and will treasure them forever.
You fondly called me Rhem Rhem. You enjoyed reading a lot and encouraged me to read. I was amazed at how much you enjoyed reading. I believe that I got the bug of reading from you. 
I love you grandpa, but I am sure we will meet again to part no more. Thank you for the time we had together and for being the best grandpa in the world.  

Rhem Rhem.

Daddy was a father to me and not just a father-in-law. He made me feel like his own daughter. My father passed on when I was very young, so dad became that father figure and taught me a lot. While I was studying in Nigeria, daddy always made sure that he treated me with nkwobi and palm wine when I was on break from school.
I was intrigued by your wealth of knowledge and you were never shy of sharing or impacting your knowledge. You were kind, thoughtful and selfless. Thank you for being a loving father and for your words of encouragement and advice.
Thank you for looking after our children whenever you visited us and thanks for raising your 7 sons to be the God fearing and true gentlemen they are today. I will miss our banter and singing hymns, especially hymn 170, which you sang with your baritone voice. We are eternally grateful to God for the impactful life you lived and I will cherish the fond memories. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord till we meet to part no more. You will be missed dearly.

Iheanyi E Egbukole (Son)
Words failed me in my several attempts to write this tribute because I cannot believe that you are no longer with us. It is hard to accept that you are no longer going to pick up your phone and fondly enquire about my welfare and that of my family. My consolation is that you gave your life to Christ, walked with Him and now in His abode.

Daddy you were a loving father, my role model, my mentor, legend and an incurable optimist. You meant a lot to me. You taught me the most valuable things in life which I would hold dearly.

You loved God and laid the right foundation for us to follow. You ensured we always prayed together as a family and encouraged us to praise and serve God as you did.

The quality of a father can be seen in the children they raised. You believed that spiritual, moral and academic training are the most important assets any parent(s) could give their children. The aspiration of raising educated children came at a very costly price but you were relentless despite teacher’s meagre salary, you sent us to some of the best schools. 

I remember when we (my brothers and I) were children, you said when your time is up and you lie in state you would like to be surrounded by all seven of us who would then be all graduates, this is a prophesy that has come to pass, as we celebrate your life. Daddy we cannot thank you enough for the love and sacrifices.

Thank you for being the best dad anyone can wish for.  I could call you at any time and you always had a listening ear and will provide the right guidance. Life is going to be different without you, but I am grateful I got to call you my dad.

We are grateful to God for your life, you were the only surviving child but God multiplied you by blessing you with seven sons, we thank God that you lived a fulfilled healthy life and has gone to be with God at a good age.

You were knowledgeable and a great historian. We enjoyed your various stories such as the history of Egbukole family, Egbu and ndi Igbo that you shared with us. Even though you are no longer physically with us, you live on in our memories and you will be cherished forever.
Adieu my loving father, we will meet again to part no more in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Tribute to my inestimable father-in-law...

indeed, death is inevitable. I was shocked immdiately my hubby called me on that faithful morning, informing me you're gone. Seriously I couldn't believe it until I visited. Your love was an indication and part of my overall marital happiness. I didn't know you were too fond of me until my children and I spent some time with you during covid 19 last year precisely. You poured your heart to all your children. You told my hubby how happy you were to have me as a daughter-in-law. Chia!!! Death, why did you do this to me when I needed him most? I miss your jokes, stories and laughter. As a father-in-law and a father figure, your absence left a deep wound in my heart. It is sad to feel that you are no more with us here on earth, but your love and peaceful memories are still our guide. Your perpetual love will continue to bind us together as a family. I strongly believe we will rejoice with you on that resurrection morning when God will call us home.
Continue to rest in the bosom of the most high, till we meet to part no more.

Love leaves a memory no one can steal, but death leaves a memory no one can heal.

I remember that faithful day i was at the hospital with you and my mum ,My brothers and i was discussing over the phone planning for your 90th birthday before i noticed you were breathing so fast i called the attention of the Doctor but death came and to took you away before my eyes.i watched you die before my very eyes yet i couldn't help. 
It’s sad to know that my dad is no more, but again it is a loving memory for me when I think about the life of my dad & all he did for me the time we spent together. The good memories remains with me forever, knowing the ability impacted by my dad into my life. All the good things that he taught me …. An intelligent and intellectual man full of joke’s, always stresses the importance of education .
I don’t know where to begin, all I keep thinking is how I wish I had that “one more” opportunity to see you daddy, to hear your voice and to see you smile or even crack a joke. You were everything to me, you did everything for us all. …. .I love you dad, you were my hero… The legacy you left us is what made me what I am today and keeps me progressing in life… You lived for others, always helping others. I’ll do my best to carry on in your footsteps. I am happy that I’m one of your children . Your memory will not die in me… Thinking about the time spent together do bring smile to my face and I remember your smile also. Dad you are in my heart, and you are here in spirit even as I’m typing now.. I will always love you and miss you dad… Continue to Rest in peace dad. Adieu!!

Daddy, I heard your voice in the morning of March 7th 2021, you told me you were very okay, later that day I received the shocking news. But pondering about the life you lived, I realised the reason you said those words to me. Daddy You completed your assignment here on earth, you fulfilled the purpose of your birth, and left no stone unturned. The memory of the times we shared will always be in my heart. I will miss your stories, your smiles and your lively presence. You always told me that you're never alone. No doubt you are with your maker now, The Almighty, your God whom you served.

I wish you had not died at all. It's just so hard for me to believe that you are gone. I miss you so very much that I wish I had so much time with you while you were still alive but it's just too late because you are already gone far away from earth to heaven. You did good to everybody you met.

It was a shock to me when my mom told me that you were gone and I cried so much and wished you rose up from the dead. You have been so much in my heart. I remember the last summer holiday I spent with you and grandma at the beach and I will never ever forget that or you either.

May you continue to rest in heaven peacefully.

Your only Abigail-junior Elsie Meky-Egbukole (Granddaughter)

DEAR GRANDPA,
      
I miss you so much. You were a kind and good gentleman and I would like to imitate that character as I grow. I know that you are resting peacefully in God's bossom. We'll always remember you grandpa because there'll never be another grandpa to replace you in our hearts and the love we have for you.

I love you grandpa, may your soul continue to rest in perfect peace.

My loving grandfather,
even in your death, I still miss our memories together, you were always there for me when I needed you. Thank you for always taking care of me when I was an infant, and even if it grieves me that you are no longer with us, I feel better knowing that you are in a better place.

Daddy,
The memory of the just is blessed indeed, because you will always be remembered fondly.
You were a definition of grace, love and class. Your warm reception from the start, the way you loved your grandchildren, your charisma: i got used to them but never took for granted.
Your life was an evidence of God's love and how much God could bless a man if he walked uprightly before him.
You lived a long and fulfilled life but it doesn't make your transition hurt any less because you are absolutely irreplaceable.
Rest on Grandpa.
Your daughter in-law

I have always used you as a reference point when it comes to heading and leading a family. You were a shining example of how one should live. It was sad to hear that you were no more.

It was well with your soul, it will remain well with your soul as you continue to rest. Rest In Peace. You were a rare good man. Rest on!

It is in sober times like this that we remember the words of a preacher

"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the

heaven; a time to be born, a time to die".
Your timeline attests that you were truly a teacher and instructor to

all, peaceful, truthful and you showed unalloyed love to all. A man with

principles of fairplay and few words that produces effective outcomes.
On behalf of the Ibe’s family, we pray that the Holy Spirit befriend the

Egbukole’s family in this time of grief and thereafter.
May the Almighty Lord grant his soul perpetual Rest.

Dabere Agam-Ibe.

Our Dearest Pa Sir Maxwell Benjamin Egbukole,
Sadly we did not get to meet while alive, but from the testimonies from all your children - Pastor Okechukwu Egbukole to be specific, it shows that you were a Godly, compassionate, energetic and enterprising man who lived a purposeful life to the glory of God and that of humanity. We take solace in the fact that you lived a life of selfless service in the Church, your families and the entire community.

And to Pastor Okechukwu and his siblings left behind by Papa, I want you to take solace in the fact that Papa came to this world alone and he has left alone. This is the inexorable law of nature and we have to muster courage, strength and fortitude to accept the will of God as believers. Believers like Papa does not die, they only transit from mortality into immortality. I pray to God to bestow on all the beloved ones Papa left behind strength, energy and comfort needed during this period of Papa's demise. It is my prayer that God Almighty will give peace and tranquility to the departed soul of Papa.

The name of the Lord will be honored, souls will be brought into the kingdom of God through the celebration of life of Papa both before, during and after the funeral ceremony.

ADIEU!!! Pa Egbukole and Rest in Peace in the bosom of God in Jesus name. Amen.
