My Dear Prof Ezugwu, Friend and Brother,

It was with great sadness that I learned only late last night (6th October) of your most untimely passing from this world into the next. Paulette and I are this morning reeling as the enormity of this news begins to take hold. However, my Dear Prof, the sense of grief and loss we feel is nothing as compared to the pain and anguish, which your beloved wife, Patricia and your three cherished offsprings, Ginikanwa, Nnaemeka and Obumneme must be experiencing at this time. We wish to convey our thoughts, sympathy and heartfelt condolences not only to your cherished family unit, but also to the wider and no less significant extended families of the Ezugwu’s and the Umeano’s.

Dear Prof, your untimely passing will now and henceforth impact all our lives in at least three highly significant ways: it is and will be personally, professionally and internationally felt. For in you, we have lost a man - a stalwart - whose passion for family, professional integrity, thirst for learning and flourishing and whose individual drive to contribute to the technical and academic development of Nigeria and other nations, will not be surpassed.

Dear Prof, as a friend, brother and fellow academic, you will always be missed.

May you rest in internal peace.

Dr Leburn Rose (Lee) - aka Chukwuemeka)
Former Head of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Foundation Studies at London South Bank University

Prof, The Great Man

The news of your death was so heartbreaking. It's unbelievable that we will not see you again. So much unfinished business. Kelechi, your Godson was waiting for your guidance and this happened. You were such a remarkable man, one with extraordinary passion for life, friends, family and humanity. You were so down to earth and ever available to provide support when needed. I was shocked to hear about your demise.
At this point, I can only thank God Almighty for the life you lived and pray that you are in His bossom forever.
I pray for Pat and your lovely children that God will comfort them at this very difficult time. I pray for the entire Ezugwu family for strength to bear this devastating loss.


From Uchenna Ngwu-Igwe, Kelechi and Kesandu Igwe
