August 10, 1943 – October 27, 2011
Nazir Halim Nahas beloved husband of Manzar of Calgary, passed away on October 27, 2011, at the age of 68 years.
Nazir was born in Lebanon and immigrated with his family in 1976. He worked as a welder for many years and was actively involved in his Church and community. His biggest passion was fishing and his greatest joy was spending every moment he could with all his grandchildren. Despite his long battle with cancer, he continued to open his home and heart to all. Everyone knew him lovingly as either Babba, Amou or Jido.
