30th June 2014: In Memoriam Adil Marmarchi
It is with deep sorrow that the Marmarchi Family announce the passing of their beloved Adil on Saturday 21st June, after a long illness.
The trustees and ICIN Council are deeply saddened at the loss of Adil Marmarchi, one of the Charity's founding members.
Adil was, from the very beginning, an enthusiastic and hard-working member of the steering committee, which was formed to explore ways to provide aid to the persecuted Iraqi Christians following the invasion of 2003. Working tirelessly, he was involved in every step of the way in establishing the charity, becoming a trustee of it after it was founded and playing a major role in its fundraising and events activities. His gentle demeanour ensured that his presence at Council and Trustees' meeting contributed in a major way to their smooth running and he was always ready to provide advice and guidance. That was typical of the character of Adil, gentle yet persuasive. Not only was he held in high esteem by his colleagues, he was also much loved and will be greatly missed.
Adil, on behalf of ICIN and the thousands of Iraqi Christians in need, thank you and may God reward your efforts.
Prayers for his departed soul will be given at The Church of the Immaculate Conception, 114 Mount St, London W1K 3AH (please use the main entrance on Farm Street) at 11:00am on Monday 30th June.
This will be followed by his burial at Gunnersbury Cemetery (also known as Kensington Cemetery), 143 Gunnersbury Avenue, Acton, London W3 8LE.
Condolences will be received at the The Jumeirah Carlton Tower, 2 Cadogan Place, London SW1X 9PY from 2:30pm until 8:00pm.
