A good man has left us.... many will miss him.
Nassif Michel Hamouch, 59, of Carrollton, TX passed away at his home July 9, 2014 following a hard fought battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Nassif was born on January 25, 1955 in Monsourieh, Lebanon to Siham and the late Michel Hamouch, and he is the second oldest of seven children. Nassif lost his father during his teenage years and as the oldest son he stepped up to help his mother take care of the family. He worked to receive a degree in philosophy in 1975 while in Lebanon In 1976, wanting to be a pilot, Nassif made the move to the United States. His first stop was Gulfport, Mississippi, but after one month, his home sickness had him heading back to Lebanon for another year. When Nassif came back to America he landed out west in Oakland, California to join close friends from Lebanon. Nassif achieved his first goal of receiving his pilot’s license and then headed to Texas. Nassif moved to the Dallas area in 1979 and soon met Nancy Wyrick, originally of Carlsbad, NM, at a mutual friend’s house. For Nassif, it was love at first site and he was adamant on taking Nancy out for a date. After numerous coffee and french fry dates at Denny’s, the two of them became very close and Nassif knew he had met the one. Nassif had to return to Lebanon for one year, but their love never wavered. They wrote letter after letter during their time apart, and in 1981 Nassif proposed the idea of marriage to Nancy from half way around the world.
