Khalid Nassar Eadeh

Khalid Nassar Eadeh
May 12, 1971 – June 8, 2014

Khalid departed this earth unexpectedly and is now with his Heavenly Father. The son of Anwar and Salwa Eadeh, Khalid was raised in Jacksonville, Florida. His grandparents, Nassar and Bahia Eadeh, and Elias and Badia Tannous predeceased him. His wife Mary and son Andrew Anwar Eadeh survive Khalid.

Surviving are his parents Anwar and Salwa, brother Waleed and sister-in-law Jaime Eadeh, father and mother-in-law Mansour and Hanneh Mansour, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was also blessed with many friends who were like brothers.

Khalid graduated from Wolfson High School and worked for Comcast Cable for 14 years. Khalid was a great friend to many and had wonderful and infectious laugh. He loved life and enjoyed being with his close and extended family and friends. After Khalid fell asleep in the Lord, one common theme from his family and friends was how Khalid was always so happy and how he always had a smile on his face and that one can never forget his love and passion for the Philadelphia Eagles!

Mary, Andrew, Anwar, Salwa, Waleed, Jaime and the rest of the family would like to extend their thanks for the support the family and friends have provided during this difficult time. Family came from all over the country, Palestine, and the St. George Antiochian Church family was indeed a great support. His son Andrew will know the meaning of family through the support he receives over the years from this extended community. Khalid’s physical body has left but his memory will live on in those who have loved him. May God bless the entire family and may his memory be eternal! Khalid is now flying on the wings of an EAGLE!
