Tribute to VEN. DR. OBINNA IBEZIM (A GALANT SOLDIER)

It is with heaviness of heart that we mourn the death of a great man of God, widely and highly respected. A church man, preacher of the gospel, an epitome of humility and generosity. You were an inspiration to many who came close to you. Your passing unto glory is a reminder of the word of God in (Job 14 vs 1&2), “Man born of a women is of few days and full of trouble. He springs up like a flower and withers away; like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure”. We are therefore consoled by your legacies and exemplary Christian life, religiously guided by the great moral lessons of Jesus Christ filled with stewardship and mentorship which you left on the sand of time. Indeed, you have run a good race, fought a good fight and the crown awaits you. Rest in peace, till we meet to part no more.

Ven. Michael & Mrs. Uzoamaka Nwaubani

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN A COOLER FOR THE RESURRECTION MORNING

Uncle Obi, the thought of your demise is hurting but the fact that this excruciating thought is going to be with us for as long as Jesus tarries is totally heartbreaking. My siblings and I grew up loving you with all our hearts, we had no reservation for you first loved us. The memories we shared with you and 'aunty nneka' remain a point of personal reset in our hearts. You had a name beautifully crafted for me (Nanando). You thought me to be ME. I remember vividly your soul pricking counsel at the verge of my entry into the university, those words germinated as seeds and brewed courage, boldness and willpower in me. 

Uncle Obi, as I sailed through the wavy waters of the shores of Nigeria, you were always not far with a spare life jacket of advice and care, you were so far away in Nigeria yet I could almost feel you around saying those words, "Nanando, just be you". You had my email password and knew my little pranks as a young man. Uncle Obi, you knew everything about me. I remember that faithful day, you were asked by my parents to drop me back to School at St. Augustine Anglican Seminary, Nbawsi while they were away for Lambeth Conference, I had to soak my clothes in water because I didn't want to go back that day thinking you would reschedule, only for you to bundle me alongside my wet clothes back to school as late as 7:30pm screaming "Nnamdi, you...

A Mentor And Father

It is with utmost discomfort and displeasure that I write this condolence message.

This news came as a great shock to me and many others whose life have been greatly and positively imparted upon by VEN OBINNA IBEZIM. He was a man who dedicated his life to helping others and making the world a beer place.

I remember the song he sings every Easter which turned out to be a song sang during our family prayers. “Hosanna Diri Eze Di Ebube” 

I remember when you handed Mummy Ibezim over to me to take care of her in school and I was wondering “how”. It’s so heartbreaking that we are almost at the end of our journey in school and you are not here to witness it.

You played the role of a father and mentor, helping me address various issues of life. Sadly, we cannot queson God but this sad news le me with a queson, could there be a remedy for death?

My thoughts are with the Ibezim’s in this difficult me. With tears streaming down my face, I know you will find rest in the bosom of the Lord. You are dearly missed; Yes, you are!

OBIOCHA misses you and greatly loves you! 

Farewell Daddy Ibezim Onyeoma, Nna onyeoma.

TRIBUTE TO DR. DAVID OBINNA IBEZIM

My heart broke when I heard my dearest cousin’s sudden departure, but I know that death did not catch him unaware, the Lord took him home. I know if we could ask him to come back to us, to come back to his wife and children he would say “No” because he is in the bosom of Jesus, the lover of his soul. He is in heaven. “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints,” says Psalm 116:15 (ESV). “The LORD cares deeply when his loved ones die.” Obi, as I fondly called him when he was vising West Palm Beach Florida was a lover of God and a lover of mankind. He was God’s servant- kind, gentle, compassionate, humble, very resourceful, and a fisher of men. He had a way of reaching people for the kingdom without verbosity. He has ministered to many, including vising the prisons in Florida to preach the gospel in the most simplified oratory that the captives whose souls were imprisoned were set free, giving their lives to Jesus. He knew his purpose in life and he was focused on his purpose her on earth, he accomplished everything he set out to do and God blessed him. He was a blessed man. He loved his wife and children, he was a great provider, husband, and father. He loved his family- brothers and sisters and relatives. He loved this community. When he was younger, he could not walk- The Lord miraculously... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

A TRIBUTE TO OUR BELOVED SON AND BROTHER INLAW VEN. DR. OBINNA IBEZIM

What can be said for a life well lived in devotion and service to God and his neighbor? Dr. Obinna Ibezim is such a man who perfected his faith and reverence for God in speech and in deeds. With sincerity in his expressions, he lived and walked in love and truth, before God and man. He easily inspires others to strengthen their own faith in God and to follow the straight and narrow path with body, mind and spirit. I pray that the shining light of his good example and life’s work shall turn many inward in reflection to strengthen their devotion and faith in God and in service as they increase their good deeds in the world while caring for one another. 

What can be said for a life well lived in devotion and service to God? Our beloved brother, Obinna Ibezim, is faithful, loving, true, and with a willing and obedient heart, he served both God and his neighbor well. 

Gone from our sight and yet ever in our hearts and in Heaven. May his soul rest in perfect peace with God, Amen.

Ifeanyi Iroh,

For and behalf of the Family of

CHIEF FELIX I. IROH (NDI OGO AMAKOHIA)
