From weakness to strength and from nothing to a mentor. Your encouragement and advice has led me to places I never thought I would go. The first day that I climbed those stairs to your White Plains road office, I struggle to swipe a metro card at the subway. I knew nothing. Now, I am a mentor to others, and for much of it I give you the credit. Big brother, THANK YOU and rest in perfect peace.

It's been 3 years since you left us and it's still strange to come home with you not being there. We miss you everyday and there isn't a day that goes by without reminiscing on memories of you. There's still such a huge dad-sized hole in all of our hearts. Love you always. Your princess.
Posted by Adobi Ojibe on 18th December 2016
My dearest brother, It's been 3 years, yet time has not made your passing any less painful. But fond memories of you keep us going from day to day. You will never be forgotten. Love you Bros, Adobi.

Yesterday as I was thinking about you, l realised how deep a void that your death left. I struggle with what to do and how to go about doing them. I do know that with time God will make all things beautiful again. You would have been 56 years old today. Happy birthday.Miss you so much. Adobi.

The last time I saw you was during our Coltech time. From the tributes here, you remained true to who you were. To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die. You left behind a loving family - your legacy will continue. Continue to rest peacefully in the bossom of our Lord. Ngozi Ogu-Onyirimba

Rest in peace and remember always that I miss you dearly. If only we could chose the ones to stay with us ....you would be here with us FOREVER. You never know your treasures until you lose them. You were a GEM.

Hi Daddy, Happy 55th Birthday. I still can't believe I can't just call you up and wish you a happy birthday or come home and surprise you with a gift. I miss you every single day, more than anyone could ever imagine. I know you're still around and still protecting me like you always have. I hope you're proud of us. I hope you miss us the way we miss you. Love, Ada, Mommy, Nana, & Gozie
Posted by Adobi Ojibe on 6th November 2015
Uncle Vic, my dearest brother, You would have been 55 years today. Still too young to be gone from us. I remember you today as I do everyday and although your physical absence is a constant reminder of the big loss your death has left, I am ever so grateful for the 53 short years we had together as siblings, priceless memories of you, the most caring and selfless person ever. Rest in perfect peace my brother. You will always be loved and dearly missed. Your sister, Adobi.

I go to Salem Tabernacle where Victor went. I see, every Sunday, how good of a father Victor was, when I see his children go to The Lord's Table with their mother and receive the bread and the cup. The family is oriented the right way and that is a testament to what a father Victor was, and what influence he STILL has!
Posted by Obi Aniedu on 6th November 2015
Uncle Vic, celebrate with Thy LORD. You are 55 today!! You will ever remain green in our memory. REST IN PEACE WITH THY LORD.

We miss you so much. Still like yesterday, when I was telling you about my nursing program at the lobby of New York Hotel . Your smile, your voice, is irreplaceable. All I do now is to keep praying for your lovely family. We love you , and we miss you, keep sleeping in the bosom of the Lord most high.

Victor, it is sad to remember you are gone. Rest in perfect peace. From Yvonne Uzoma Obi and family.
Posted by Adobi Ojibe on 2nd June 2014
Bros, I miss you so much. It has been almost six months since you passed on to rest with the Lord. The pain does not get any easier, but the beautiful and fond memories of you we share, remind us everyday that our time here is temporary and that we shall one day meet again in heaven to part no more. Love you my dear brother. Keep on watching over your wife and children.
Posted by Nimi Iyalla-Ipaye on 5th April 2014
Uncle Victor, where can I start? My heart is still so heavy and I am yet to fully come to terms with the fact that you are no longer here on earth with us. My family and I miss you so much. Despite the lack of understanding, I know for certain that you were unlike many, for you were truly an angel here on earth serving your heavenly father until the very end. It makes sense that God wanted his best angel back. While your parting was too soon for us, your legacy, your story, your impact, your life and your tremendous love shown for all you accepted as your family will live on forever. I hope you are having the time of your life in heaven. I know you are forever watching out for your wonderful, beautiful, kind hearted wife and children. You are an inspiration to my family and I. May your gentle and loving soul forever rest in peace.

Hi Daddy, I miss you more and more each day. Hope you're having the best time in Heaven. The pain never gets better though, I wish you were here everyday. I know I'll see you again. "On that morning, when this life is over, I know I'll see your face."

Pray you are smiling in God's bosom. God will surely console your darling wife ,children,siblings, mum & dad. Adieu

Uncle Vic, What happened. I got the shock of my life. May your soul rest in peace. We can only hold unto the word of God that said; I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Uncle Vic " Ijeoma". It was least expected and May the God Lord Grant your family peace and mercy at this great loss in Jesus Name.
Posted by Myke Anazodo on 1st February 2014
Sir Vic, I still find it difficult to believe that you are gone. You bore your pain with dignity. Our tears will never bring you back. Only God knows why he took you at the prime of life. We love you but God loves you more. May you watch over your family from heaven. May God grant Uzoh and the kids His peace and sooth their pain with His incredible love. May you rest in perfect peace, dear friend. Myke and Tessy Anazodo

Uncle Vic, This is one of those times when my brain refuses to coordinate my thoughts and words fail me. I am still overwhelmed by emotions and still confused. It seems like a dream though I knew you were sick. I had trusted God for miracle, but you know, our thoughts are different from his. It pleases him to call you back home and I can not but thank him for bringing you into my life. You were a blessing to me. I still remember the day you walked me down the isle on my wedding day because my dad was late. It seems like yesterday. Adieu my dear friend and brother. Sleep well until we meet to part no more. Ifeoma.
Posted by Donald Akp on 30th January 2014
I was just down at home alone thinking, then it occured to me to come to your page. Sir u were a blessing when you were alive, and even in death your life is still an inspiration. I heard about how you fought through your pain, even when u were in severe pain, you still found the strength to smile and u went to work and provided for your family. Like you did when you were with us before the lord called you home, I will always fight and remember that no matter how tough it gets we will overcome with God on our side.
Posted by Adobi Ojibe on 27th January 2014
My dearest brother, It's 3:42 am and I have been up thinking about you and remembering your life. You were such a good person, so true with a pure heart. I love you and miss you so much. Adobi
Posted by Kenechi Ogbuefi-Okezie on 24th January 2014
Uncle Victor! I vividly remember when you came to visit me in Lagos after I had my baby almost 9yrs ago. It seems just like yesterday. Never saw you after that but always had you on my mind. You were a good man. You did not loose the fight. Yours was a victorious one. Rest in the Bosom of the Almighty. Adieu Victor! Adieu!!
Posted by JOE UGO-EMERIBE on 22nd January 2014
Sir Vic, Very difficult to believe you lost the fight. Last time we spoke when you came visiting Nigeria I was certain you would overcome the challenge. Great friend you were and I enjoyed every moment of the four years I shared with you while at school. Your cool disposition and excellent sense of humour did not dwarf your strong personality. You were such a rare gem, a dependable confidant, lover of family and a courageous guy as exhibited in your last fight. Vic, your life taught warmth, love, compassion, courage, and generosity. Good night my friend and see you again someday. Joe Blow
