Amin Shafic Bitar

May 12, 1940March 21, 2020

On the evening of March 21, 2020, Amin Bitar of Edmonton passed away peacefully at the age of 79. Amin was born in Aley, Lebanon to Shafic and Badiaa in 1940. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1962 from the American University of Beirut and had an extensive work career split between computing sciences and the insurance industry. In May 1967, he married Najwa, and together raised three children. Amin was a handy man, but was especially known as an avid carpenter. He built many memorable items including furniture for friends, family and the church. Amin will be remembered for his good sense of humour, hard work ethic and being well travelled with many friends around the world. Amin is preceded in death by his father, his mother, and his sister, Leila. Amin is survived by his wife of 52 years, Najwa, his 3 children, Richard (Roxane), Claudia (Martin), Mansur (Yolanda), his brother Souheil (Sonia) and several cousins, nieces and nephews. He was a loving grandfather and great-grandfather to Robin, Alex, Halim, Samar, Tori, Lilly, Jenna, Elijah, Nicholas, Arianna, and Gabriella. We were truly blessed to have him as our patriarch and as a guiding force in our lives. A private service will be held March 26 for family and friends, with a public memorial service to follow at a later date.
