Obituary of Mohamed Toufic Ibrahim
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, Mohamed Toufic “Moe” Ibrahim, 76, of Garlands Crossing, on Sunday, December 4, 2022, in his home.
Mohamed was born in Akka, Palestine to the late Toufic and Husnia Ibrahim on December 20, 1945. He and his siblings lived a difficult life being impoverished and surviving in refugee camps. Mohamed overcame adversity and was fortunate enough to arrive in Canada in 1967 where he became extremely educated. Eventually he was able to sponsor and bring his family with him, helping them escape the Lebanese Civil War and begin a new life.
Over the course of his career, Mohamed earned his Class 8 Teacher’s Certification and taught in many cities throughout North America. He finally settled and purchased his dream home in Windsor, which is where he started and raised his family, retired and proudly resided for the remainder of his life. His last position before retiring was a French teacher at Windsor Regional High School and he always enjoyed telling us stories from back in his teaching days. He was very fond of the town of Windsor, his students and his colleagues.
Mohamed is survived by his loving children, Huriyeh (Christopher Broussard), Toufic, Samia, Elissar (Evan King), John, Mohamed Jr. and Lena Ibrahim; his beautiful granddaughter, whom he absolutely cherished, Rylie King; his brothers, Motlaq, Ali, Said, Habes and Isaam; his sisters, Fatia, Samiha, Samira; and many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Moe was predeceased by his sister Huriyeh; brothers, Yazbek and Samih.
His big heart, charisma, energetic presence, quick wit and incredible sense of humor will be truly missed.
Thank you for everything, Dad. We love and miss you dearly.
