Adel Joseph Menassa
December 9, 1927 – November 25, 2019
Adel Joseph Menassa, 91, went to Heaven at midnight on Monday, November 25, 2019. He was born on December 9, 1927 in Egypt. He was preceded in death by his wives, Olga Menassa and Betty Menassa; his son, Georges Adel Menassa; his brother, Elie Menassa; and two sisters, Rene Wood and Nadia Presley. He is survived by his daughter-in-law, Laura Menassa; his grandchildren, Joshua Aaron Menassa and Mary Elizabeth Knight; his nieces, Paula Abboud and Josette Patterson; and his close friends, Stephen and Nancy Knight. Adel frequently attended the Church of the Holy Child in Ormond Beach, FL where he appreciated taking communion, praying, and receiving fellowship with others. In recent years, Adel enjoyed playing bingo and taking trips on the Victory Casino Cruises, always hoping to catch a win. Affectionately, being with family and close friends seemed to bring him the most joy. Adel had a delightful personality and was loved by most who knew him, especially when sharing a story from his life. He spoke at least three languages and had a wonderful accent. Adel will be remembered with love and affection. There will be a memorial service held on December 15, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Church of the Holy Child, 1225 W. Granada Blvd., Ormond Beach, FL 32174 to memorialize both Adel Joseph Menassa and Betty Menassa. We will remember them together before laying them in their final resting places as husband and wife, grandfather and grandmother. Adel and Betty will live on forever in our hearts and memories as we remember their influence with great gratitude.
