Dr. Engr. Joseph Ekpe P. Eng. Obituary

Ladies and gentlemen, family, and friends, today we gather to celebrate the life of a remarkable man, a loving husband, a cherished friend, and a soul whose passions illuminated the world around him. We come together to honor the memory of Engr. Joseph Ekpe was a man who embraced life with kindness, faith, and an unbridled love for soccer and travel.

Dr. Engr. Joseph's heart was a canvas painted with hues of compassion, warmth, and generosity. His kindness touched the lives of everyone fortunate enough to cross his path. Whether he was offering a helping hand, sharing a comforting word, or simply radiating his infectious smile, Joe had a way of making others feel seen and valued. His heart, large and open, was a testament to the beauty of kindness, leaving an enduring imprint on the hearts of those who knew him.

Soccer was not just a sport for Joeseph, it was a passion that brought him immeasurable joy. The roar of the crowd, the skillful plays, the camaraderie among teammates – these were the elements that fueled his enthusiasm for the beautiful game. To Joe, soccer was more than a pastime; it was a language that transcended borders, a universal connection that allowed him to forge bonds with people from all walks of life.

In addition to his love for soccer, he found solace and purpose in his faith. His love for God was a guiding force in his life, providing him with strength, comfort, and a moral compass that directed his actions. Whether he was at church, participating in community outreach, or quietly practicing his faith in everyday moments, Joseph exemplified the principles of love, compassion, and humility that are at the core of a life well-lived.

Traveling was another passion that Joe held dear to his heart. He had a wanderlust that led him to explore the beauty and diversity of our world. From the bustling streets of foreign cities to the serene landscapes of distant lands, Engr. Joe found inspiration in the richness of different cultures. His adventures were not just about the places he visited but also about the people he met and the experiences that shaped his worldview. As we say our final goodbyes to him, let us remember him as a man of extraordinary depth – a soul who found joy in the simple pleasures of life, a compassionate friend, a devoted husband, and a traveler who embraced the world with an open heart. The legacy of Joe's kindness, love for soccer, unwavering faith, and adventurous spirit will continue to resonate in our hearts.

Joseph will be lovingly remembered by his wonderful wife, his beautiful daughter, his sisters, brothers, friends, and colleagues who will miss the positive influence he had on us all. As we say our final goodbyes, let us remember Joe as a beacon of light, a source of inspiration, and a true friend who touched our lives in ways that words cannot fully capture.

May Joe rest in eternal peace, and may his spirit inspire us to live our lives with the same passion, kindness, and love that he so beautifully exemplified.
