Dr. Wisam Haddad Obituary
DR. WISAM HADDAD Dr. Wisam was born in 1954 in Amman, Jordan. He worked hard to accomplish his dreams of becoming a surgeon, and served people in that capacity since graduating from Loma Linda Medical School in 1979 until his peaceful passing on August 10, 2014 at the age of 60. Countless lives were saved by his skilled healing hands. He was named among the nation's top doctors by US News and World Report. He worked and taught at Loma Linda University, and practiced surgery at Riverside General Hospital, Redlands Community Hospital and Beaver Medical Clinic where he also served a term as Chief of Surgery. He loved his life's work, his colleagues and the patients he served, but above all, he loved his family and God. His true joy in life was serving his family. He was married to Rozanne Haddad for 35 years. It must have been a match made by God because Rozanne was delivered by a Dr. Haddad when she was born in Connecticut in 1949. Together, they had Angie, Laila and Laura. Wisam was a true family man. His greatest joy was spending time with his girls- repeating family traditions and reminiscing about the years of love they shared. He nurtured and provided for their dreams to become reality- he was a dream maker. Angie is a nurse with four beautiful children who affectionately called him "Papa", Laila founded a medical non-profit called New Reality International and is also a spokesperson globally to combat the injustice of sex trafficking, and Lara is a gospel recording artist and singer/songwriter living in Nashville TN. Wisam loved the home he and Rozanne designed, built and got to enjoy for 27 years. When he wasn't working at the hospital or dreaming up new vacations to share with his family, Wisam would be out picking citrus and fruit that he planted, putting in new flower beds, editing family home videos that he took, playing in the pool with his four grandchildren or taking long walks with Rozanne. The beautiful experiences and home that he gave to his family were mere expressions of the big heart he invited all to find refuge in. He loved nothing more than giving his best to his family, friends and patients- His heart beat with generosity and thoughtfulness. Wisam was the eldest of his six brothers and sisters. His siblings- Silvia, Sameer, Grace, Sammy, Jacklin, and Haitham- his mother Tammam and father Boulos, all relied on him as the rock and leader of their family. Wisam could be called on day or night- a dependable and faithful son and brother. Wisam in arabic means "Medal of Honor" and that is what he truly was for the Haddad family. Integrity, faithfulness, honor, kindness, gentleness, respect, generosity and service are the words that ring loud and clear in people's hearts when they fondly think of Dr. Wisam Boulos Haddad and the great life that he shared with this world.
