It is with deep sadness that the Moghrabi family announces the passing of Selim Moghrabi on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at the age of ninety-four. He will be sadly missed by his beloved wife, Victoria (Vicky) Elias; his loving children, Rebecca (Becky), Shirley (Serge), Albert, Moïse (Sandra), and Mike (Andrea); his cherished grandchildren, Jenny, Vicky (Ben), Tina, Sarah, Mia, Max, Sam, Maya, Rachel, Jacob, Daniel, Alexa and Sofia; his sisters, Sarina, Suzette, Lily, Emma and Ruthy; by his numerous nieces and nephews, as well as other relatives and friends. Predeceased by his dear sister, Gamalo.
Selim was a wise, intelligent and a sensitive man. He was gentle and kind-hearted, and loved his family and his community. He moved from Lebanon to Canada in 1976 for his family. Khalo Selim (Uncle Selim) was a big man in every sense of the word and the patriarch of the whole extended Moghrabi family. For his friends and clients, he was El Istaz, all the way from Lebanon to Canada.
He moved from a big and prestigious law practice in Lebanon to another one here in Montreal after going back to school here at the age of 49 and rebuilt a successful career! For his community, he did everything. From the foundation of the Lebanese Maghen Abraham synagogue with his friends, to the presidency of the Spanish & Portuguese Congregation. He was generous and kind with everyone and brought together many different communities. And lastly, Selim was a wonderful dad, husband and uncle. He gave us everything. We will miss him very much.
A private funeral service to take place. Shiva strictly private.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Selim Moghrabi 2021..
