George I. Haddad
1921 ~ 2019
George I. Haddad passed away peacefully at his home on March 17, 2019. George was born in Aley, Lebanon, on February 3, 1921, to Iskandar and Adele Haddad. Having emigrated to the United States in the 1950s, George was the embodiment of the American Dream. He and his wife, Samira, believed in education and contributed to the higher education of many relatives and friends.
Business owner and real estate developer, he was self-educated and a lifelong learner with an amazing sense of curiosity. He was the owner of Tall Fashions of Utah until he retired in 1983. He was an avid traveler who enjoyed immersing himself and his family in new cultures and experiences. He loved meeting new people and spending time with family and friends.
George loved working in his orchard and vineyard with his "vintage" farming equipment and MacGyvering new tools in his garage workshop. He was a free spirit who revelled in the wide-open space of the West and of his life. He loved laughing and telling stories.
George was cared for in his old age by the gentle and able hands of Samira, his loving wife of 55 years. He was adored and deeply admired by his children Sandra Haddad, Mark Haddad, and Lisette Haddad Neale, daughter-in-law Kinneil Coltman, son-in-law Russell Neale, grandchildren Russell, Justin George and Jeremy Neale, and Sayla Haddad.

Samira, Sandra, Mark, Lisette, and family,
Thank you for sharing George with the rest of the world. We love George and will miss his smart witty and contagious love of others. My memory burns bright with all the fun stories and times I was able to share with him. He was an example to me in so many ways. I know I am a better man because of his love and kindness. May God bless us all to be a little more like George.
~ Until we meet again my friend.

Samira, Sandra, Mark, Lisette and family,
Our deepest empathy and sympathies to your family at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I have very fond memories of George and family going back to Tall Fashions, just about across State street from our Umo Joe's store and also taking Arabic lessons at your house.
George always treated us like family and he was an influential roll model.

To George's family,

Any time that we lose loved one this is certainly a difficult time. May the precious memories you shared together, help you cope and bring you peace. May the scripture found at 1 Thes. 4:14 bring you some comfort knowing that there is a future for the ones we have lost in death can be reassuring. May the God of peace be with you and your family during this time.

I feel fortunate to have met George. He was generous and fun to be around. He and Samira were always welcoming, kind to me, and treated me as a friend.

My condolences to the family. He will be missed.
