Mr. Charles Arinze Emetarom was born in 1952 to Mr. Emmanuel and Mrs. Veronica Emetarom at Awkuzu, Oyi local government area, Anambra State Nigeria.

He was a devoted Catholic, loving father, husband, and a loyal friend and mentor to many who worked with him and the Nigerian community in Houston Texas. He nourished people around him with love, faith, and laughter. His soft voice, tender heart, and gentleness brought a sense of caring and love to many with his jovial nature, wittiness, and love of music.

May his gentle soul rest in peace. May Eternal rest be granted upon him and let perpetual light shine upon him. We love you and we will miss you.

It made me sad when hearing of Charles's passing. My deepest condolence goes out to his family. We worked together at Walgreens on Hammerly and Blalock for some years. We became great friends , going to the students graduation, pharmacy dinners, and just everyday pharmacy work. Charles would share his experience of when came to the United States, and many life experiences he had in Nigeria. Just remembered I still have the shirt he gave me for Christmas, thanks Charles. This man had a very loving and kind heart. It showed in his actions and personality . You will be missed by all of us.
