KHAKOO, Arif

Khakoo as he was affectionately known by many, leaves behind numerous friends and family members whom he loved dearly, including; his dear parents, Nizar and Mehrun Khakoo, his loving wife, Zahra, and the spark of his happiness – their beautiful 5 year old daughter Ziyanna. Khakoo may be gone but he will never be forgotten by all those that were blessed to know him. The family would like to thank all of the doctors, nurses and staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the exceptional care and support they received during this difficult journey.
