In Loving Memory

Richard Nassar

October 14, 1950 - July 18, 2022

Tribute

Richard Nassar was ushered from the presence of his wife Janice Nassar into the presence of his Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, early Monday morning, July 18, 2022. He was a lifelong resident of Mobile, AL where he spent most of his adult life in the automobile industry in which he was highly respected and loved.  For the last 28 years, Richard has lived to glorify his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was a beloved Sunday School teacher, deacon, and choir member at Shiloh Baptist Church and will be greatly missed by colleagues, friends and most of all, family. Richard knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was going to meet his Savior and was looking forward to it.  That was his hope for everyone he knew.

Richard is preceded in death by his parents Eddie and Mary Frances Dyer Nassar, Brother Edward Assad Nassar and sisters Diana Olivia Nassar and Deborah Frances Nassar Berman and son Isaac Nassar.

He is survived by his wife of 22 years Janice Griffin Nassar; children, Richard Basha (Carrie) Nassar of Taft, TN, Nathan Kahlil (Kristee) Nassar of Chickasaw, AL, Eric Wicklund (Heather) Nelson of Chickasaw, AL, Maria Danielle Nelson Hare of Saraland, AL, Delana Drew Nassar of Mobile, AL; grandchildren, Mikah Nassar, Christian Nassar, Levi Nassar, Lachlann Hare and Surri Hare; nieces and nephews, Shawn Berman, Misty Norris, Beau Berman, Rachael Whibbs, Ashley Blackmon.

    We all loved Richard! I actually called him Robert Goulet, since his voice was so wonderful! A great man who loved his Savior, Church and Family. It doesn’t get any better!

    We miss you Richard! I look forward to hearing Robert Goulet agin someday!

    It still doesn’t feel real. I’m still waiting on a call from you that will wake me from this bad dream. If only I had said I love you more would that have made your leaving us a little easier? Here are a few things that I wish I had said to you but didnt…..like how i was so proud to have you as a father (in-law) and to be a Nassar. And how much i really miss our shopping trips together. I’ll miss your sense of humor and your generosity to others. I take comfort in knowing that your in a better place where there is no suffering, and no need for oxygen tanks,and comfort in knowing I will see you again someday. We love you so much Gidee!
    Love, Kristee, Nathan, Mikah, Christian, and Levin.

    I simply adored you dear Uncle… appreciated our theological discussions, giggle at our many venting sessions and appreciated your living example of agape love towards everyone. Thank you for showing me what true unconditional love looks like. I will miss you but I am so incredibly happy that by the Blessed Hope we have in Jesus, that you are eternally healthy and whole. For this, It is well with my soul….

    Although Tom and myself only knew you for a short time you blessed our lives so much!
    You made us feel welcome from day one one at Shiloh Baptist Church and took us into your Sunday School Class. No matter how you were feeling you always made the effort to reach out to us to see how we were. We love you and miss you dear friend. I only wish we had more time to get to know you. But I am thankful we will see you again my dear brother.

    Janice, I was so very sorry to learn of Richard’s passing. Richard and my husband, Bob, were good friends since the 70’s when we lived in Mobile. The last time we saw you two was at my high school reunion and I have a picture of you both. Bob passed away in 2008. He always thought a lot of Richard. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you.
