HRH Prince Abdul Ali Seraj Obituary
HRH Prince Abdul Ali Seraj
HRH Prince Abdul Ali Seraj, Age 73, of Kabul Afghanistan and Milford, Connecticut, beloved Father, Husband and Baba Jan, passed away peacefully on July 11, 2018.
A direct descendant of nine generations of Kings of Afghanistan and nephew of His Majesty King Amanullah, known as the Victor of Afghanistan, Prince Ali dedicated his life to his beloved country of birth and his family.
Prince Ali received his education in Afghanistan and in the United States at the University of Connecticut. He earned degrees in Economics and Business/Public management. In Afghanistan, he established several successful businesses and restaurants, the most famous being the 25 Hour Club and the Golden Lotus. He was also very actively involved in the welfare of his countrymen. He assisted the poor and the needy and helped set up the downtrodden in private business so that they need not beg.
After the communist coup in 1978, Prince Ali escaped from Afghanistan and settled in the United States with his American wife Maribeth Blawie Seraj and his Daughters, Safia, Sahar and Alia. For 24 years, while in the US, Prince Ali made a successful career in business development, sales and marketing in fields including commercial real estate, industrial components and fiber optics. During this time he also provided leadership for activities and programs designed to bring information about the plight of the Afghan people to the government and the people of the United States.
Upon his return to Afghanistan in 2002, after more than two decades of exile, Prince Ali continued his charitable work and proceeded to build over three hundred homes, several mosques for the poor in several provinces and supplied school materials to thousands of students.
After a long battle with cancer, Prince Ali passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends. He leaves behind a legacy of generosity, charisma, and boundless love and pride for his homeland and his family. He is mourned by his wife, daughters, sons-in-law Robert Webber, Jonathan Ross-Wiley and Jason Cavallaro, and six grandchildren, Soraya, Zia, Tariq, Farah, Laila, and Kaihan.
The family would like to invite all who mourn Ali to attend a service in tribute to his life on Thursday July 12 from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Spear-Miller Funeral Home, 39 S. Benson Road in Fairfield CT. All guests are invited to participate in a remembrance of a grand life well lived, with speakers welcome to share their stories and memories from 7:30-8 p.m.
Burial Services with prayers will be held Friday Morning July 13 at 10 a.m. at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Milford, CT.
In lieu of flowers the family asks any gifts be directed the in support of Afghanistan in order to honor his one hope, that one day a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan will once again be restored.
