Seyed Sahamaldyn Parvizi (Saham “Sam” Parvizi), age 62, of Middletown, DE, passed away suddenly on Sunday, June 1, 2014.
Born in Torbat, Iran on December 5, 1951, Mr. Parvizi was a son of Seyedjalal Parvizi and Soltan Nahidipoor. Educated at the esteemed Polytechnic University of Tehran, he graduated with a combined degree in water resource management and civil engineering. He would later teach at Hamadan University and would go on to start his own company. Well respected by his colleagues, his extensive knowledge led him to a position where he was responsible for the engineering and maintenance of five major dams in Iran. Mr. Parvizi immigrated to the United States in 1999 to provide a better life for his beloved family. He most recently worked as a senior engineer at Artesian Resources.
A technological wizard, Mr. Parvizi enjoyed repairing computers. He would happily lend his assistance to anyone in need. He was referred to as “everyone’s 911”. A devoted and loving son, husband, brother and father, Mr. Parvizi will be dearly missed by his family and the extended members of Bahá’í community.
He was preceded in death by his father, Seyedjalal. Mr. Parvizi is survived by his mother, Soltan; wife, Manieh Ahmadi Parvizi; son, Parham Parvizi and wife Tina Taeb of Portland, OR; daughter, Mahsa Parvizi of Durham, NC; one brother; and five sisters.
