This is probably one of the hardest tributes I've ever written. I'm so short of words to pen down. But, you'll always be in my heart and I'll forever miss you. Keep smiling with the angels. May your soul rest in perfect peace. May the Holy Spirit bring comfort to your family.

I am at a loss where to start and don’t even know what to say. It’s like a bad dream that I cannot wish away. I remember those times we spent together. A jolly good fellow you were. My God what a shock. As it is said , there is no armour against fate. May the good Lord grant your soul eternal rest my friend and grant your siblings the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. We all shall miss you. Rest In Peace.

Hey, Uncle Willie. It's been more than month now, and to be honest I'm still in denial. Ever so often I'm faced with this reality, but on other days I prefer living in my own made up dream that you're still in Eket. Still with your girls and wife. Still alive.

I know it's doing me no good, but I'm not sure how to accept the reality that I won't hear you call me "my Mama" anymore. My mind is not comprehending the truth that I won't get those warm hugs of yours anymore.

I miss you so much. So much. But within me I'm at peace. He says you're resting, and I know it's true. But what I wouldn't give just to hug you, peck you and say a proper goodbye. What I wouldn't give for just a few hours more.

You were the only close family that shared July with me. I will forever miss you, Uncle Willie. I love you. Whitney's "I will always love you" is playing now, and no lyrics have been truer. I will always love you.

Rest easy, my handsome uncle.

Dear Barr. Mrs. Tare Inwang.
The news of the passing into eternal glory of your beloved husband came to me and the entire members of the Christian Lawyers'Fellowship of Nigeria, (CLASFON) Eket Branch as a rude shock. On behalf of my family and I, and the entire CLASFON family in Eket, I urge you and your family to take solace and consolation in God, knowing that Him alone has the capacity to comfort and preserve you. May God continue to secure, sustain and preserve you and your family especially in this difficult period in Jesus name, Amen. Be hopeful because as Christains, we believe that your husband is resting in the bossom of the Lord. He had transisted to eternal glory and we cannot question God. Benjamin Adama, Esq., Chairman, CLASFON, Eket Branch.

I have had to come in terms with the price of my choices many times one of which was a prolonged opportunity to see you again....

I just didn't think it would never be again till eternity. I should have come see you at least once more here; I'm so sorry!

Thank you for giving me that sense that I had a dad!

I Loved you, Uncle and will never stop carrying you in my heart till we meet again!

So so bad
I lost a wonderful friend
Could you imagine a pain so deep down inside. Too early to say good bye.
Although physically you're always in my memory.
I remembered you sent a message to me
at 12:12pm the same day you left me.
You lifted my spirits when I was feeling blue
The thought of never see you again brings
tears to my eyes.
May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

Dear Margaret, accept my condolence, only God can comfort you and your family, my dear friend, losing someone is like piercing a dagger through your heart but we don't have control over it,just lean on God and find inner piece, sleep on big brother Willie
Posted by Roland Uye on May 19, 2021
Uncle Willie, its so sad to know you are no physically present with us. You were a nice, easy going person. I remember your visits to Calabar, kids would always swam around you playing and having a jolly good time. It's sad that you had to leave our mother Aunty Darling behind grieving your demise.
Sleep on brother!
To all family members I say be strong for God is still God.
Posted by Ben Ufeli on May 18, 2021
It's so sad you had to leave us so soon. In Gregs you were so cool and quiet. We shall miss your contributions to our chat group on WhatsApp.
Rest in peace. May your family and friends be consoled.
Goodbye Willie..

Chère frère,c'est avec tristesse que je viens d'apprendre la mauvaise nouvelle : que tu es parti.
Nous nous sommes pas vu depuis 1974, notre dernière année au collège ( St. Gregs ), mais je me souviens toujours de toi: un garçon calme et gentil. Que Dieu te protège mon frère. Adieu Willie.

A kind heart, a beautiful soul, a perfect gentleman.
Willie, my childhood friend and brother, you grew your wings when we least expect.
Painful but with total submission to the Will of the Almighty.
The last time we spoke you said let's be in touch more often, am sorry now I haven't been in touch.
The good Lord comfort those you left behind.
Rest On in the bossom of the Lord till we meet to part no more. Missing you!

The news of Willie's passing came to me as a rude shock. Willie it seemed was always there to encourage and bless you. We lived in Surulere growing up us at Adebola street while they lived on Adeniran Ogunsanya we attended the same primary school. Willie was our senior while Helen was my classmate we were really young we would all walk home together after school its was a short distance with Willie we felt safe. I moved away but always kept in contact with Helen over the years. Fast forward Facebook came along and we reconnected...Willie was such a wonderful person looking out for everybody...a perfect gentleman. He had your best interest in mind. Helen and the other siblings were truly blessed to have him as a brother and the rest of us were blessed to call him friend. May God bring comfort to your precious mother. Rest on big brother you will never be forgotten. I say to Helen and his other siblings stay strong. Willie's memory lives on in our hearts. A o pade lese Jesu...We will meet at the feet of Jesus.

No words I write can ever say the vacuum you've left behind. As time goes by the loneness keeps growing. How I missed you Uncle Willie!! I think of you in silent. I often speak your name but all I have is memories and photo in a frame to keep.
I can remember seeing you, and you told me that all was fine only for me to find out that the reverse was the case. In life I love you dearly. In death I love you still. I always missed you Uncle Willie till we meet to part no more.
Your's truly

Dear, dear Willie, yes you left us too soon! You are gone too soon. But your memories will live in us Gregs 70-74 set always.
Our times together go beyond Gregs and that nobody can take from us. You were a great talent and artist in so many ways and you blazed a fashion trail for many to follow with your bongo pushed to the limits and big afro which made you stand out always and be a heart throb that just kept throbbing!
We cherish you and cherish our times together more. Be at peace brother Willie, until we meet again.
Posted by Joseph Britto on May 15, 2021
I am so sorry to hear about Wilfred’s passing. We were schoolmates at St Gregory’s college class of ‘74.

Words, however kind, can’t mend your heartache, but those who care for you share your grief and wish you comfort and peace of mind.

Please accept my deepest condolences and know that God loves you and can restore your spirits, give you peace, and strengthen you.

My most sincere sympathies to you and your family.
Posted by Gbolahan Faluade on May 15, 2021
Willie, I have known you since Saint Gregory’s College.

I still remember you with the bandana and the platform shoes that we all wore back then.

You were colorful, kind, nice and musically gifted.

You will be missed but may your legacy live on in the family you’ve left behind.

Adieu my friend and brother.
Posted by Babatunde Otiti on May 15, 2021
It is with great sadness that I heard the news that our dear friend and brother Willie had passed. Though we had not seen each other since 1974 we shared greetings on social media. A truly gentle...thoughtful and kind person you were Willie. Gone to soon. May the Lord comfort your Mum..Wife..children...siblings your Gregorian brothers and friends. May the Lord strengthen your family and give them the courage to bear such a tragic loss. Rest in peace brother and friend.

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this tribute to Wilfred. We were classmates in St Gregory’s College 1970-74 set and we also lived around Shell Club in Surulere. We shared a love of music, fashion and partying. He attended a few Christmas parties held at Jalupon Close. My one regret was that we didn’t meet again after we left school. My condolences go out to the aged mother, his siblings, wife and daughters. I pray that the memories shared with him will serve as a source of comfort to you all. May God grant his soul eternal rest

I have chewed this bitter pill since April 26th and still can't swallow it. The cut in my heart is deep ..I trust God for healing. You were our pride, pillar, and confidence. You always made a difference. Brother Willie, we spoke that faithful afternoon.... your exit from our lives wasn't part of it... Mum, is still waiting for your usual visit... I look forward to your charge , imprinting your position as father in my stubborn mind...my children loved you unreservedly.  My Esien embraced you as a big brother. You were a great man. Trying sooo hard to refer to you in past tense.... Love you and will forever do

Dear Tare,
Although I have not really met your husband in his lifetime, but reading through the tributes from friends and well-wishers, I can safely conclude that your husband was a friendly, accommodating, and kind-hearted man. His death was a huge loss to your family and his loved ones. However we need to take solace in the word of God in Psalms 116 v. 15 which says " Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints. Our heart is with you and your Family and we shall always remember you in our Prayers. The Christian Lawyers' Fellowship of Nigeria (CLASFON) which is also your family in the Lord will always remember you in her prayers. Be strong as the Lord knoweth everything.

I first met Willie at St. Gregory’s College. We were in different classes, but as boarders, we were all supposed to be friendly to each other. Willie was very popular and he also enjoyed music. I remember stopping at his house at Adeniran Ogunsanya whenever I was in the area. We went our separate ways but still tried to stay in touch. I called him about three months and he was completely amazed to hear about me. We both agreed to keep in touch and I also told him his sister is my friend on Facebook. He was pleased to hear it. Our memories of Willie should continue to bring comfort to everyone. Willie was a true Lagos boy, although his parents are not originally from Lagos. But to me Willie is a Lagosian. Thanks Willie for the wonderful memories and please keep on watching over us.

Senior Winfred,

May God give you the strong heart during this period as you wish your spouse farewell to be with his creator. Almighty God sustain you, your children and the entire family over this loss, console you perfectly as the way and light over human affair on earth.
Posted by Gloria Etim on May 14, 2021
Lost for words.....difficult to accept but grateful to God for a happy and fulfilled life. To live in the hearts of those who love You is not to die.....Willie, rest on peacefully in the Lord while your memory lives on.
Posted by ESSIEN ESSIEN on May 14, 2021
‘Bros Willie’ ,as I loved to call you; you were truly a phenomenon that we would find very hard to forget. I will never forget the rare selfless acts that you extended to my family, relatives and many others.
You were an embodiment of peace, goodwill and utmost trust that is so rare in our times.
It is very painful to know that in your life-time we would never be able to give back our own quota of all those good attributes you exuded, but be rest-assured that we would take it upon ourselves to be good ambassadors of what you stood for.
Adieu Bros Willie!
Rest-in-Peace till we meet to part no more!

Words alone cannot express how devastated I was when I received the news of Willie's demise. Oh my God, so, we are now going to use past tense to talk about him. Willie was the true defination of the word gentleman. Being with him and around him was never a dull moment. Willie was kind, and very accommodating. Those who knew him must and will certainly miss him. I thank God for having known him. May the Lord rest Willie's soul in His bosom.
Posted by Robert Eyire on May 13, 2021
I'm still shocked to face the fact that your gone Bro Willie, after we hugged each other at Boveeri little did I know that was our final good bye, you were a symbol of peace and joy. Always radiating with life, encouraging everyone who came around you to be the best they could be.May your soul rest in peace. You've shown us how to live in peace. Good bye man of peace
Posted by Esessien Offiong on May 13, 2021
Baba Willie, I still have pictures of the last time we hung out on January 2, 2020 when I was in Calabar. I never knew that was the last time I would get to see you. Your memory will remain evergreen. It is so sad but who are we to question God. Rest in peace, my friend, rest in perfect peace.

Farewell my dear friend
What a vacuum!
Words cannot express my feelings at the knowledge of your demise. Oh death, where is thy sting?
Willie was a man of few words with a penchant for details. He was extremely neat, very caring and always calm regardless. Your friendship was a blessing.
I will never forget your contribution towards the success of Havilah Motors Limited being the first General Manager.
Indeed, life is a race which you ran and has taken a bow.
May the Lord be with you till we meet again.

Mr. & Dr. (Mrs.) Clement George

Bros you never said you were leaving,we still spoke on Friday night and Saturday insisting you must see a doctor. I did not know that was going to be the last time,you never said goodbye, you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why????

You played your role so well to ensure we your siblings were okay, you were soooooo selfless, caring, considerate and had genuine empathy for others. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,in death I love you still. It broke my heart to lose you,but my mind knows you are in a better place where there is no pain. YOU ARE AT PEACE ✌ I understand that. I just wish I could explain that to my heart.

May the Lord grant you eternal rest bros, I love you and will always miss you. Till we meet to part no more.
Posted by Mabel Okonyia on May 8, 2021
Eccl 3. says there is an appointed time for everything. I recollect in the 70's before I left the neighborhood, you played your role as the first born perfectly. Helen your sister never took that for granted; she adored you. We reconnected on Facebook about four years ago. I thank God for giving me the opportunity of knowing a kind and gentle soul as yours. May God comfort your wife, children, aged mother, Helen and the rest of the family. Amen. Adieu my friend and brother. 
Posted by Helen Inwang on May 7, 2021

Willie my love; I am in such shock and still cannot believe that you are gone. Death has robbed us of your warm and loving presence, leaving us devastated and heartbroken.
I still see your beautiful soul, wonderful smile, and I hear your hearty laughter like dad’s.
You are sorely missed. I take comfort in knowing that you lived an exemplary life and made so much impact wherever you went.
Your indomitable spirit of humor, warmth and kindness will forever remain in our hearts.
I am consoled knowing that you are in a better place.
May The Lord turn this mourning into dancing again for our 93 year old mother, your wife, your 3 lovely girls, all your siblings and everyone who is hurting due to your loss because, The Lord has promised and He is faithful.
Soo Egbōñ mï! Rest in Perfect Peace in the bosom of our Almighty God.

My prayer for you and your family is that God Almighty will comfort you all and fill the void he’s left. It’s extremely painful but only God can help and we cannot question Him. It’s a test of our faith and we can’t but continue to trust Him. This life is nothing and I pray your brother is in a better place with God who loves him more It is well my sister.

Posted by Ossy Egbaran on May 6, 2021
It is true that God's mercies are unfailing and that his spirit is one. We hadn't spoken for quite a while and God whispered in your ears that we needed to and boy, did we have a chat! It was just like the old times, laughing, joking and reminiscing about the old days. You were so happy. Neither of us realising that would be our last conversation and that was your goodbye. Four days later, you were gone!

I bless God for bringing you along my path and for the grace of knowing you. Thank you for being my buddy, confidant, friend and brother. I hold on to the memories of the times that we shared to gether and I pray that the angels will guide you and make your journey to our Lord's bosom peaceful and smooth.

Rest in eternal peace my friend!

Helen, please accept my deepest and heartfelt sympathy and condolence for the loss of your brother Wilfred Inwang. His loss to the family touches me deeply that words alone cannot express. But, one thing remains; that God will give you and the entire family the strength to bear his loss.  May he find complete peace and eternal joy with the Almighty God. Amen. Willie, may you rest in perfect peace.

Dear Helen, I was so sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of your beloved brother. Please accept my heartfelt condolences to you and all the family and his friends. May brother's soul rest in peace and rise in glory.
It is never easy to lose a sibling, nothing can fill that void but with time and God's grace, you will be left with the wonderful memories of your treasured times together. It is said that time is a healer but only time will tell in each individual case.
For now, the grieving process is the remedy that the body needs, so take your time, for as long as you all need it. May God bless and keep you all in His comfort.
Posted by Segun Inwang on May 6, 2021
To the memory of my brother & mentor. Pa Willus (as we all fondly called you), it is painful & difficult for me to comprehend what has happened & I am still struggling to accept that you are no longer with us. Our God is all-knowing & is sovereign over all things & can not be questioned. Your memory will forever remain in our hearts. Adieu. Rest in peace, dearest brother.
