Obituary for Bahaa Amin Youssef
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of a beloved father, husband, grandfather, uncle and friend to many after a courageous battle with heart failure. Bahaa Youssef passed away peacefully on Sunday October 16 at North York General hospital. Beloved husband to Arlette (nee Ghaleb), cherished father to Peter, and Neveen (Louie) and dearly loving grandfather to Alexia and Luke. Predeceased by his parents Blanche Youssef and Amin Guirgius, he will be missed by his immediate family, and his brother Nagi (Farida), sisters Nadia (Sabet) and Nahed (Fikry), and his many nieces and nephews. Bahaa Youssef has worked as a Pharmacist for over 50 years, and was a partner in the Main Drug Mart chain, whereby he enjoyed his profession with the dedication, passion, and integrity that he instilled in his children. His loss is tremendous but through the tears of sorrow we are comforted that he finally found peace from the pain, in the kingdom of Christ, whereby one day we will be reunited with him.
