Dr. Enoc Venero Chambi
November 1, 2020
May the Lord give him peace and receive him in His loving arms

Dr. Chambi was my insured for the past 12 years. He was the kindest and polite person I have come across in my life. He would always address me as "Miss Nilu" which I thought was very sweet. He would even call me while out of the Country to check on the status of his policies and send text messages which I still have on my phone. His passing has come as a shock to me. May GOD grant him the highest place in Heaven and give strength to his family and loved ones to cope with this huge loss. Rest in Peace Dr. Chambi and watch over your loved ones.

Enoc has been always a great friend and high professional since more than 25 years I know him .
He had big heart and was giving more than receiving
It’s a big loss and his memory will stay in my mind for ever

My heart is heavy knowing that Dr Chambi no longer walks among us. My deepest sympathy to Gina, I know he was your everything. I knew him for over 15 years and although I was only the nurse that helped him with some of his cases, sometimes I would ride with him to his Montclair office and I learned a lot about him. He was worldly, he did a lot in his life. More than a lot of people do in a lifetime. I learned that his family meant everything to him and he loved them very much. He was sincere and caring and a pleasure to work for. I considered him a friend. But my faith has taught me that this is not the end and he rests with our almighty Father where some day I shall see him again. Rest in eternal peace Dr Chambi......

So sad to hear of another loss in the Chambi family. We were neighbors in Puno, Peru many long years ago and have maintained the friendship. Our special love and thoughts are with Dr. Enoc's wife, daughter, and the entire family (Especially Pastor Pedro Chambi and Dr. Israel Chambi). May we all be ready to meet around the throne of God one day soon!
