I moved to Portland with my husband in 2004 and I have known Dr Mian Tahir and Dr Jahan Ara since as early as that time. He was the elder of our community and a cherished human being. I have fond memories of being invited to his house and meeting him and Dr Jahan Ara. Both fed us non stop and kept showing us their beautiful home. His library was his pride and joy and he graciously showed us the books he had collected over years. I will never forget that moment. It’s etched in my memory. Uncle Tahir, as I called him will always remain close to my heart. I can still hear his beautiful laughter and his jokes in my mind. He will always be missed. Lots of love and sincere condolences to all members of his family. A joy to have spent time with you and your beautiful wife... you shall remain in our hearts forever... RIP Dr Mian Tahir
Gone but not forgotten...

I was hired to work with Dr. Tahir in 1969 as his Nurse Practitioner. He taught me Neurosurgery but he also taught me about life, religion, hospitality, and generosity. He was a very caring, gentle man. He and Jaha Ara invited me and my family into their home and we enjoyed many meals and laughter together. He will be greatly missed! It's the end of an era for me. May he rest in peace and may God bless you, his precious family.

I have known Dr. Tahir for over 40 years. In the seventies when I came to Portland he and his wife Dr Jahan Ara Tahir welcomed people to their house and were absolutely gracious hosts. Dr. Tahir was a gentleman, a scholar, a professional in every sense of the word, and helped people whenever and wherever they needed it. He and Jahan Ara both loved poetry and we enjoyed many evenings of Mushairs (Poetry readings) in their house and many other such gatherings. He had great memory and remembered and shared stories of past with vivid details.

We offer condolences to his children and family members. We will miss his wisdom, his decency, his compassion, and friendship. We will miss his smiling face and his sense of humor. May God bless him and grant him the best. May God give patience to his family and protect them. Ameen.

Very sorry to see this. It was a pleasure to work with Mian. I enjoyed the tongue in cheek exchanges in the Bess Kaiser cafeteria with Mian and Bill Kadner.
He was a gentleman in the best sense of that word and a talented and caring physician. Rest In Peace.

Tahir. Beloved by the both of us for almost 30 years. Gentleman, poet, surgeon, pioneer, generous host. For me, always a reliable, supportive friend, colleague and mentor. He will be missed but we are grateful for the times and experiences we shared.
