The Passing of our Dear Founder, David William Lazar
It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce the passing of our President and Founder, David William Lazar, who passed away today surrounded by loved ones. David is survived by his wife Ninva, and children Delmin and Tiamet Lazar. In his public life, David was a highly respected activist who spent his life fighting for the rights of all Assyrians; in his private life, he was a devoted husband who always cherished his family and friends. His sacrifice to the Assyrian cause will never be forgotten, as he worked tirelessly to further the mission, doing so without compromising his core values. David leaves behind several non-profit organizations that he co-founded, including Assyrian Aid Society of America, American Mesopotamian Organization, and Restore Nineveh Now Foundation. His spirit will forever be the foundation of our organization.
David’s untimely death was unexpected and is a complete shock to all of us. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with David have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the cause he believed in so much. For the time being, we would like to reflect upon his life and express our gratitude to an exceptional man who gave everything to his nation.
