MASOUD ALMASSI After an extremely courageous battle with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, withstanding the harshest cancer treatments available in the medical community, Masoud Almassi passed away from complications on January 19, 2013. Dear husband of Alison, devoted father of Donia and Darius, brother of Saeed and son of Maryam Zandieh and Heydar Almassi, he instilled pride in all who knew him and worked with him by the sheer presence of his spirit. He inspired his loved ones to take interest in the mysteries of the night sky, 18th century history, chess, fine international cuisine and true crime novels. His indefatigable sense of humour was infectious, even through the toughest periods of his illness, lighting up the most somber of rooms. Friends, family and colleagues are invited to a visitation at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, 375 Mt. Pleasant Rd. (east gate entrance), on Thursday, January 24th at 10:30 a.m., followed by a service at 11 a.m. and interment at 1 p.m. For online condolences and donation information will be available at: www.etouch.ca
