Hossein Ghiassi “David” Tabari 60, passed away on August 4, 2019. David was born in Babol-Province Mazandaran on July 15, 1959 to Gholamali Tabari and Zahra (Ghiassi) Tabari.
David was always fascinated with art, photography, and beauty. He was drawn to the psychology of the way we could see and recognize what is considered beautiful. David spent his time learning about light, color, lines, shapes, harmony, balance and composition. David loved the way images could touch people, bring out emotions, and communicate ideas.
David received his degree in graphic design in 2008. David enjoyed photography professionally as a photographer in Oklahoma for over 25 years and was also an instructor. David worked in visual marketing for Jasco Products at the Petroleum Club in Oklahoma City. When he was not working, David could be found playing tennis and watching his favorite basketball team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. What made David most proud was being a father to his beautiful daughter, Eli Tabari.
David is survived by his brother Mahmoud, of Germany; bother, Mohamad, of Babol; sister, Mahin, of Babol-Province Mazandaran, Iran; daughter Eli Tabari; friends Verej Jazivar; Sandy Grace; Hassan Salamatian, Gabriela “Gaby” Salamatian, and their son Michael Alexander Salamatian of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

“Today is the first day of the rest of my life. The biggest tragedy in life is not to take yourself for granted. Never give up. Love one another as I loved you.”
