Ahmad Momtazzadeh was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was
born in Bushria, Iran into a family of five siblings on June 28, 1927. Ahmad attended Military College and then pursued a career in healthcare-nursing. In 1953, he married the love of his life, Pary Momtazzadeh. They had 3 children: Shahram and the twins, Shohreh and Sheila.
He was a man of faith with an unparalleled strength of character and capacity to overcome the obstacles that stood in the way. He moved to the United States in the early 1980’s, due to the persecution and threats towards the members of the Baha’i Faith, from the Post Revolution Islamic Iranian Government.
Ahmad and Pary settled in Norman, Oklahoma, where he immediately engaged in improving his English in order to work and provide for his family. He worked for 15 years at Griffin Memorial Hospital.
Ahmad passed away at home, in his beloved Norman on March 18, 2018. His legacy will thrive through his family, especially his grandchildren: Soroosh, Sheila, and Amelia.
Ahmad Momtazzadeh had a kind soul and was a dedicated Baha’i who lived to do good and share his love with all.
