Karim Aziz Cadora
February 20, 1942 – September 14, 2017
Jacksonville, Florida

Surrounded by his family, Karim Aziz Cadora passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 14, 2017. Karim was born on February 20, 1942, in Ramallah, Palestine. At the age of twenty-one, Karim moved to Jacksonville, Florida to attend Jacksonville University. Karim graduated from Jacksonville University with a Bachelor’s Degree. He furthered his education at the University of North Florida and earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology. For the past forty years, Karim worked as a self-employed business consultant.

Karim was a member of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church and the Ramallah Club of Jacksonville. He is predeceased by his father Aziz Jeries Cadora and his mother, Najla Kassees Cadora. He is survived by his wife Juliana Ayoub Cadora, daughter Karina Lee Cadora, and son Kevin Aziz Cadora. Karim was a man who loved and cherished the people around him. His strength and love for life were apparent in how he lived knowing that he had Pulmonary Fibrosis. As he stated, “It is in God’s hands. I lived a good life. Be strong and take care of each other.” Our family would like to thank the community for their overwhelming love and support during this difficult time.

We little knew the day that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke out hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories.
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.
