Notes

George Abdul Karim Ashoo, of Basra, Iraq, passed away on July 14, 2015 at the age of 82 years old.
George enjoyed life and his family. He loved painting, gardening, traveling and fixing things. He loved his grandchildren and gave them whatever they wanted especially lots of chocolate. He had a fun life and a great sense of humor. We will always remember and cherish our memories of him.

He is survived by his wife, Samira Ishaq; daughters, Dena Hanna and Hala Willis; son, Basil Ashoo; six wonderful grandchildren: Andrew Hanna, Nichole Hanna, Nathan Willis, Sarah Willis, Carson Ashoo, and Lexie Ashoo; and brothers: Emanuel Ashoo, of California; Mufeed Ashoo, of Canada; and Amal Saloomy, of Canada.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to North Raleigh Presbyterian Church.
George requested that guests not wear black to his memorial service.

Sarah, we were so lucky for the times that you allowed Jordan to spend with your grandfather. It always made her come home missing her own PePa and Papa. Grandfather's like Mr.Ashoo are very rare these days and we appreciate you sharing him with Jordan. He will be very missed yet never forgotten.

Dear Hala and family- I am deeply saddened for your loss. I know through working with Hala for many years at GSK, and though meeting her family, and George, even briefly, what a positive inspiration he was to all of you. His life story is very powerful, and the dedication you all have for family is inspiring to others. The sense of loss is shared by everyone who knows your family, and I hope with time, the pain of his passing is replaced by the powerful and positive message of his life, and that you can all celebrate his life story knowing that elements of his amazing spirit lives in in all of you. With my deepest sympathy. Rick Adler

My deepest sympathies to the Ashoo family on the loss of a beloved and inspiring man. His legacy lives on in wonderful children and grandchildren. It's been my honor to work with his daughter Hala who brought many of the Ashoo gifts to our workplace - hard work, intelligence and humor - everyday.
With deep respect,
Holly Jordan

Dad used to always dance when I sing or sing while I danced. Neither one of us knew how to sing, but we both knew how to dance. Love you and miss you Dad.
