Semaan Haddad

On Tuesday March 30th, Semaan Haddad died peacefully at Hôpital de la Cité-de-la-Santé in Laval. He was 86 years old and will be mourned by many family members and friends around the world.

He is survived by his beloved wife Josephine Haddad, his three children: Naila Dorais, Paul Haddad, and May Haddad, and by their families and grandchildren: Marc Dorais, Alexandre Dorais, Mirella Dorais, Leandro Haddad, Nathaly Alferez, and Camille Sabongui. Left to mourn are his dear sisters and brothers: Loris Khoury and family, Alfred Haddad and family, Alice Khoury and family, and Maurice Haddad. He will also be missed by his in-laws, nieces, nephews, and their families; and will be cherished by many friends and extended family members in Lebanon, Canada, Jordan, and the United States.

Semaan lived a very pious life which enabled him to survive many of the difficult challenges that life brought his way. His belief in God throughout the good times, and the bad, was unshakable; his love and loyalty to his wife were unconditional, and his absolute dedication to his children and their families was unwavering. He was known to everyone as an extremely generous and loving man, and was admired and respected for being a man of highest values, morals, and ethics.

Due to Covid restrictions, a private funeral service will be held for immediate family only. We kindly ask all the loving family members and friends to celebrate their memories and their love for this special man at their homes, and in their own personal way.

Nos vies ne se sont croisés que quelquefois lors de réunions de famille. Nous nous rappellerons toujours de sa grande gentillesse à notre égard. Semaan était un homme respectueux et intègre. Nous avons été privilégiés de le connaître. Nous avons aussi été témoins de son grand cœur et de son amour pour « Zouzou », ses enfants et petits-enfants. Nous pensons à vous Zouzou, Naila, Paul et May en ces moments de grande tristesse.

Dear khalo, it is sad that we grew apart and didn't have the chance to spend a lot of time with you. Every time i think of you i couldn't but remeber your big heart and kind soul. The time we spent with you in our childhood will always speak of a great person that you were. As you sit in the arms of the Lord we ask you to pray for us. My deepest condolences to the family.

Dearest khalo, it is a great loss to mom and i. you were and will always be remembered as "khayyi semaan w ana" whenever mom talks about your childhood and youth together. and for me, your memory is always related to dad and the good old days we lived in kuwait. even your death happened in the same March month. i'm sure that now you are both in a better place with Jesus where there is no pain nor sadness but an eternal life. may your soul rest in peace. till we meet again... goodbye

There is not enough time and space to say everything I want to say and feel about my dearest brother Semaan. My memory is full of big and small matters that we enjoyed. My only regret that circumstances forced us apart and now I could not say to him goodbye. His soul is now in heaven resting in peace
