Let the memory of Prof Michael be with us forever.
  • 82 years old
  • Born on January 1, 1937 .
  • Passed away on August 11, 2019 .
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved daddy, Prof Michael Ezepue (Nwachinemelu), 82 years old, born on January 1, 1937 and passed away on August 11, 2019. 

Our Great Dad, an erudite Professor of Geology and a wonderful father, uncle, brother, mentor, guardian and friend was a man who touched the lives of many, and whose shoes nobody can attempt to fit in. He was a very kind hearted man to his family, friends and all who came in contact with him. His great sense of humour lit up the room whenever he walked into it. 

Nwachinemelu was one of the greatest men that walked the face of the earth. We will always remember him forever.

Dearest Dad, rest in peace as we part to await the great union of the saints and faithful departed. Amen.

Having lived with you this few years of my life seems like I have been with you since the day of my birth. You were like a father to me and now that you are gone it hurts me so much becouse there is nobody to tell me stories again. Daddy I learnt a lot from you.
You were a very good and kind hearted man. The genuine love you showered on everybody around you and always sharing what you have with people who needed help. You lived your life to please your creator. You were so kind and contented hence you lived not for yourself alone but for others. We will celebrate and thank God almighty that you lived a long and fulfilled life. May your gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Lord AMEN.

Growing up in UNN, visiting the Ezepue's was always fun.

Prof was a jolly good fellow that led in making the house a very happy home. And no wonder his children are also fun to be with.

He'll certainly be missed by many.

Rest in peace Prof, and may God grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.

Prof, you cordially received and accepted me into Geology Department in the year 1999 when my hope of moving to Pharmacy dept. dashed. I was frustrated but you encouraged me. Throughout my stay in Geology dept when your were still in service, you were so good. I will miss you but I believe God has a better place for you
in heaven. May you continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord big Daddy.

My formative years as a young boy in UNN were deeply impacted by the family of the Ezepue's, thanks dear Prof. It was indeed an honor knowing you and your family. May you find rest in the bosom of God almighty.
Your legacy is surely in trusted hands, your amazing children.

Ify, while I never met your dad, but getting to know you and your siblings gave me insight into the man that raised you. The testimony I heard about his life also shows him to be a man of many qualities: husband, dad, teacher and mentor to you and many. May his soul rest in peace and rejoice, knowing he has gone to rest.

Your Dad was not only a good father to his family, but also a good teacher which manifested in him reaching the pinnacle of his career and above all a good man. He radiated humanism which he practically substantiated by his uncommon show of love to his famliy, friends and strangers. May God accept his peaceful soul and grant your family the fortitude to bear the loss. Take heart for your father has passed to glory.

Dear Prof.
You had a good ride. You stood tall, those moments came challenging and like the lyrics you "did it your way" - the lovely way you always did it.
You have left big shoes yet a big generation behide - not to worry, your children will carry on the legacy.
God rest your soul. Find peace and smile on.
Adieu Prof

Surely, prof will be forever missed. For the short period of time I knew him in the department of Geology, I was deeply impacted by my class with professor Ezepue. He was a fascinating speaker, and gave us a look at the type of issues you really face in the working world. He had the combination of great knowledge and presentation skills. He was a star."

To the Ezepue family,

May our Lord bless and comfort you all during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.

May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen

Prof! my first visit to UNN for post UME was graced by your hospitality. Your home was made for all.
In Geology department, petrology classes were interesting, all because of your approach.
You will forever remain in our memories.

I knew him too... We only exchanged a few words, a few greetings, a few glances. But I knew him through the profound friendship and camaraderie I shared with his children, who were my friends...my peers. Dumo, Emeka, Ify, yes Ogoo, AJ Monks...Oge was quite little then.
Dear Sir, yours was a fulfilled life. We all call you Dad. We ate food in your home, watched your TV and shared a deep bond of friendship and love with your children.
Rest on Sir. This is the lot of man and we who mourn today pray that we be found worthy to exit as gloriously as you and our other parents have done: live fully, see our children's children and yes even their own children and be interred with tears of blessed joy and total peace.
Adieu Prof. Your legacy lives on!!!

Dear Prof.,

Meeting you in my third year as an undergraduate of Geology department (2008) was so joyful. Your lecture classes were always so lively because of the comic relief you brought into them. Yeah, Petrology classes were where we'd always want to be cos of your jovial nature and wonderful approach. You're really a great loss to mankind.
However, earth lost while heaven gained! May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace, Amen.

Prof. Ezepue, Con te partiro!

Our great Erudite Professor Ezepue, you were indeed great and very kind. We loved you, Class of 2001 Geology Department looked forward to your lectures which were fun and hilarious. I cannot emphasize enough how kind and encouraging you were to your students. Professor Ezepue, I never stopped speaking highly of you and the love I have for you. You were such a kind man and I would never forget that.
The angels gained a saint so we say Rest in Peace Erudite Professor!

I personally knew Prof way back in UNN. He was a simple man, very jovial, a dedicated Catholic who devoted his entire life to teaching younger ones to be better people. He will be greatly missed. Rest on Prof, may Angels of God bid you welcome to paradise. Our dear mother, and my friends, take heart. Prof has fulfilled his mission on earth, and has gone to rest with God. Let us celebrate his life.
