Peacefully and painlessly surrounded by family, Adeeb “Abu Nabeel” Geries Farah passed away on March 14, 2024, at the age of 77. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showcased his courage in facing life’s challenges with a smile and unwavering positivity.

Together, they were blessed with three children, Nabeel, Joseph, and Heather and six grandchildren, who brought immeasurable joy into Adeeb’s life.

  2. As I learn of Adeeb’s passing, I mourn. He was my boss, my mentor, my friend. He took a chance hiring me and led me to a purpose filled life as a therapist. Hundreds of therapists, thousands of patients benefitted from his dedication to life. To family I’m sorry that I missed his funeral and failed to be able to express my condolences in person.
