In 1958 he married Naema (Hoda) and in 1959 they welcomed Sam Edward to the family. The family immigrated to Canada in May of 1967 first living in Montreal and then moving to Ottawa in 1976. Edward completed a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at Sir George William University in 1973. Edward loved the Lord and was very involved with the Coptic churches in Ottawa. He was the main engineer overseeing the construction of Ottawa’s First Coptic Church St. Mary (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpC-vbEhHDQ ). You could not spend more than 10 minutes with him without him referencing a scripture verse. He was a generous kind man who loved all and was loved by all. His special passion was the youth of the church. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May the Lord repose his soul in the paradise of joy.
