Mr. Michael Obinna Nwosu, was born on January 7, 1974, to Chief Evarist Nnaemeka Nwosu and Chief Mrs. Nancy Ebere Nwosu. He was the fourth child and second son of his parents and is survived by his parents and five siblings.
Michael was married to the love of his life Rukvinder ‘Rucky’ Nwosu in June of 1996, and they were blessed to have 3 children together: Mitchell, Rachel and Mark Nwosu.
If Michael had the opportunity to write his own obituary, he would tell his family and friends not to weep, but to get up and return to the business of living, loving, and working to accomplish goals. Although he was only 48 at the time of his departure from Earth, Michael had a sense of urgency from a young age, and worked resolutely to accomplish goals; he accomplished almost every goal he set for himself and proclaimed just weeks before his passing that he had an amazing life.
After completion of a Fine Arts degree, Michael worked as an independent artist with exhibitions in the United Kingdom and Chicago, Illinois. Following a brief period of teaching at Columbia College, Michael fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a federal agent in 2009. Michael’s path to accomplishing this goal was littered with obstacles, however he persisted and overcame, with his atypical grit, determination and commitment.
As a Homeland Security Agent, Michael’s passion and resolution to succeed and excel was manifested in his work ethic; he was the first to arrive at work, the last to leave, and he regularly sacrificed earned time off to volunteer for additional agency operations. He derived joy from continuously learning to bolster his career and position in the workplace, and he demonstrated a work ethic that belied the numerous challenges he routinely faced. He believed that it was his life mission to be an exceptional role model for his children, an upstanding citizen within his community, and a loyal and trustworthy peer to his colleagues.
Outside of work, Michael was content to spend time with family and close friends. Whether you knew him as dad, husband, brother, uncle, Michael, Obi, Onitiri, Onitribi or Mike, all would agree that he was an uncomplicated man who was devoted to God, his country, and his family. His steadfast love and devotion for those he loved will leave an ache and gaping void for years to come.

We will remember you whenever we see anyone flying giant-sized raptors or helicopters, hear witty jokes, learn of a new Marvel movie being released, listen to the themed playlists you created, smell the aroma of barbecue grilling, spot a convertible BMW: with the top down of course, anytime we pass by your favorite places to eat, and without fail, we’ll miss you quite acutely at the height of the political season every four years. Furthermore, it’ll take us a while before we can visit a Barnes and Noble’s bookstore or pick up a DuPont Registry magazine without tears or a lump in our throat.
Michael’s successes were not anchored in ‘self’, they were anchored in the Holy Trinity (God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit), family and close friends. Michael’s unwavering devotion to God and an unshakeable faith provided him with supreme strength and resolute courage to push through any trial or obstacle he faced in life. Regarding life and death, Michael believed with absolute clarity that all things were possible with God; his life was in God’s hand; and that he was prepared to leave this earth whenever God called him home.
