We really can't stop missing you Sir

Sir Omabu, it's five years now since you went "marching with the Saints". You did not just exist while with us, you lived and did so in the fear of God. Not surprising you were called Home on the day of the Saints.

Sir P.C. Omabu was a very distinguished and interesting man. Never would you find a dull moment with him, continue to rest in peace sir.

Just last week I was telling someone the story of a dear uncle of mine "Uncle Pat". One in a million! I still don't understand why the good ones die early...... I guess we should not question God! You are greatly missed dear uncle. There is no doubt that you are with our Lord, keep resting dear uncle.

Words do fail me. I only have this to say to my friends. You look at ur immortalized Dad Sir P. C Omabu. He died a great man, he lived a great man. His legacy will endure in the hearts of those he touched indirectly and more directly. Find love and Kindness, encourage one another and endure in forgiveness no matter the hurt. Tell me you love me now not while am no more he will probably say. Just saying Rest In Peace to a Man some of us wished was the guy behind us.

Still missing you. Which I know will never stop. Still praying and hoping for a miracle or divine intervention. Continue to rest in peace Dad.

SIR P. C. OMABU, MAY YOUR GENTLE, KIND AND PEACEFUL SOUL REST IN PEACE. THIS NOVEMBER, IN A SPECIAL WAY, MAY THE LIGHT YOU STARTED UNDER GOD'S GAZE LIGHT THE DARK FOR SO MANY TROUBLED HEARTS..

He was indeed great in every manner; great in faith, vision, wisdom, charity, simplicity and dedication. He was ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of peace. His golden rule was;"There is no amount of sacrifice that is too much for peaceful co-existence". Another, "where there is peace, there is always 'onye nzuzu' " He had no problem taking the place of the 'onye nzuzu'. The times I spent with him were moments of learning and understanding deeply the eternal truths. He shared with me, how he bought a land three times from one family. To many, it is a mark of stupidity, but to him, a sacrifice, necessary for peace. No wonder Jesus, announced the blessedness of peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Sir P.C Omabu lives in the hearts of many, because he nurtured many giants. I pray in a special way today and always for his peaceful repose.

I had the great pleasure to know and work together with Mr. Patrick Omabu long time ago, but his memories remain with us as a trustable, honourable man and excellent person. Our company RAYT is based in Barcelona, Spain, and we had the chance to share with him some days during his business visits to us. May he rest in peace and all this family and friends remain honoured for having the chance of sharing life with him.

Uncle Omabu was always so kind, so generous, so willing to assist everyone around him. I am so thankful to have known him in my life, I feel really blessed for the part God led him to play in our lives. For his courageousness, wisdom, integrity I bless and thank our dear Lord. I am confident that he is resting in our Lord's bosom where he belongs. Adieu papa, till me meet again.

Thinking of you and sending a very special prayer; that God will bless you, keep you safe and tend you with great care. You were such a special Dad in every single way. Continue to rest in the Lord's bosom.
Posted by Lucia Okonofua MJ on 1st November 2015
Sir P.C., a knight in word, deed and thought; you had a trully noble spirit and certainly was never satisfied with half measures. You loved God and lived in Him; you even had a special day to seek Him out in the poor and needy. An eye for details and a deep thinker. I believe God wanted to bear witness to your love for Him and His ways by calling you to Himself on All Saints day. May your kind and caring soul rest in perfect peace. Pray for us.

Sir Omabu was a man of integrity. He touched so many lives and mine. The day I will never forget was my wedding day. My dad passed in 1994 and each time I went for a wedding I always had tears in my eyes when I see dad's walk their daughters down the aisle.. I knew I was never going to have that experience and begged GOD to help me walk down the aisle on my own day without crying. The day came and I was informed that my handsome kid brother was going to play that role. I waited outside the church and no one could find him and from nowhere ......literally from nowhere someone touched my elbow and it was Sir Patrick Omabu. He did not even give me the chance to say good morning all he said was "are you ready" I nodded and he walked me to my husband and I heard him clearly telling him to "please take care of her". Just exactly what my dad would have said. He filled a big hole in my heart on that special day and I am forever thankful. Continue to rest in peace my great uncle.

You were genuinely a man of the people, a man loved by the people and surely a man of God. Though our paths never crossed, ur deeds spoke volume of your kind. May Gods perpetual light remain shining upon you...You fought a good fight and you will receive your crown. RIP Sir!
Posted by Chioma Afuba on 1st November 2015
I think of you so much these troubled days and I keep wishing for a miracle.

I first met Patrick C. Omabu in 1990. That was when I went to do my industrial attachment at the Africana book publishing company where at that time he was the chairman and managing director. He used to fondly call me MAO. He was humble, humane and highly intelligent. May god rest his soul in peace.
Posted by Chioma Afuba on 17th March 2015
Happy Birthday Dad. Still miss you so much.
Posted by Charles NDUBISI on 17th March 2015
Yes, he was a giant in all ramifications but he lived a saintly life of humility. He was all things to all men; detached, friendly, unassuming and always ready to go extra miles with everybody. He was succour to the poor, companion to the sick, example to the rich and pillar to the Church. Many lived because he came and for this he lives….
Posted by Chinwe Ozoegwu on 1st November 2014
Continue to rest in His bossom daddy. And may you continue to watch over your children with the angels as new memories are made today.
Posted by Mac-Arthur Obi on 17th March 2014
Just like yesterday, you left this wicked world. U have left some marks on the sands of time. Your family misses you, the church needs you back, the community wishes you could be reincarnated ASAP but one thing keeps coming to my mind and that is, may be God needs you more now and that could be the reason you left. ...greatly remembered by us sir. May your legacies live. .

You live an existence that’s elevated in nature I love you Sir

My first encounter with Sir Patrick Omabu was at a dinner organized by ANSA (Association of Nimo Seminarians and Aspirants) as a send forth for then Mr (now Rev Fr Dr) Fabian Ndubueze Mmagu. Sir Omabu made an impression on me with his humility and the talk he gave that night "Things for which posterity will remember us". He lived the words he spoke that night with profound humility.
Posted by Ugo Ubili on 2nd November 2013
Sir PC, because you loved humanity, because you loved simplicity & humility, because you loved generosity, because you loved God, because you were a family man, because you loved entrepreneurship, because you conquered, because you believed in God & resurrection. PC, it is & combination of reasons why we LOVE you back. Rest till we meet again. Adieu Dike!
Posted by Maryanne Ibida on 1st November 2013
You were indeed an iconic saint for the exemplary life you lived on earth.God called you back to him on the feast of all saints. You will be missed and remembered always on this saintly day. May you and all the other saints in heaven intercede for us. Adieu Sir knight!!!!!!!

Sir P.C Omabu, a man whom you can learn so much from within a twinkle of an eye.... A true defender of the church. Generations yet unborn will gain from his contributions to mankind. Continue to rest in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
Posted by Patricia Reilly on 1st November 2013
I only knew Patrick Omabu for the last 15 months of his life, during the illness which brought him to my parish church in Glasgow. I found him to be the most humble gentleman I have ever met. I feel honoured that I was able to take the Eucharist to him almost daily during those last few weeks. He accepted his illness with dignity and great love for Mary Rose and his beloved children.
