I feel very fortunate to have worked with Shahid for a couple of years in the early 1990’s at St. Vincent Charity Hospital in Cleveland. We became close friends, spending most of our working days together, creating occupational health business for the new Clinic on Rockside Road. This entailed visiting employers to tell them how we could help their employees stay healthy, or get healthy if they were sick, or injured. Shahid (or Sam, as he was known to many customers) was so thoughtful and so smart - a good listener and a GREAT talker. He always offered solutions. And we always had so much fun. Then we played golf once a week after work. We were both terrible golfers, but spending those hours "walking in nature”, as he called it, was always another fun thing. One time we went backpacking in the woods in western Pennsylvania. While hiking, he was like a young boy, exuberant and curious, asking about trees and flowers and bears. Later, he invited me and my wife and daughter to dinner at his home where I was also lucky to meet Seema and Kiran and Sabeen. I have great, happy memories of this wonderful man and his family. We all miss him forever.

Dr. Syed was a special man. He had the ability to remove his ego from a situation and see it from the outside and determine the most effective course of action, taking into account the personal nuances of everyone involved. He was funny and playful - caring and generous - a man of honor and integrity, but his ability to ascend beyond his own ego - that was the trait I most admired in him. Now he is freed from the pain of a worldly body and is truly able to watch over us from the outside.

I greatly enjoyed our many conversations. Your many years of experience and knowledge in such a wide variety of the healthcare system created a cornucopia of education which you spread to those around you. Thank you for the many things you taught me!

I remember when we were younger and would always spend a lot of time at their home. Kiran or Sabeen would say something completely crazy to him and he would always respond with a funny reply but in a very serious, calm manner and would walk away, leaving us laughing at ourselves. We almost waited for him to come back in the room every time because we enjoyed his playful nature. And he secretly enjoyed making fun of us too! He was a very cool uncle. And always will be missed.

Shahid bhai passed away due to his illness leaving both sides of the families devastated. Although we were fighting against all the odds, we all had so much hope that he would make it given his positive attitude and great will power. He had the will to survive and had so many reasons to live for.
I can’t emphasize enough how much we prayed, people who had never met him were praying for him, but nothing worked, absolutely NOTHING!
I’ve been trying to unravel all these questions in my head, particularly, why this happened to him. He was a young, happy, and healthy person so full of life with so much energy.
It’s safe to say that my belief in God was shattered the day I lost him. I am not sure why our prayers weren’t answered, perhaps this was all part of God’s grand plan, or perhaps Shahid bahi was way too good for us and he went on to do bigger and better things in his afterlife
I know he is in a much better place looking down at my sister and two beautiful daughters Kiran & Sabeen. As the darkness begins to unfold at some point, I know it will be you leading the way for them into the light. Although you are no longer physically with us, you will forever remain in our hearts and your spirit will always be felt. Thank you for coming into our lives and enriching all of us. You were an amazing person that showed us all how to live life to the fullest and give back to others.
You were God sent, taken away from us way before your time was up, our angel Shahid Bhai in heaven!

My brother was tough on the outside but of really soft heart on the inside. Once when I was young, and very sick, he took care of me and when I woke up in the middle of the night I saw him next to me, tears on his cheek.

He was always thinking of others right to the end when I saw him a couple of weeks ago.

Met Shahid, Seema and their two daughters Kiran and Sabeen when they lived in Cleveland, Ohio. Shahid is remembered as a kind, gentle and really a very happy and jovial person to be around with. We here in Cleveland will miss him. Seema, Kiran and Sabeen please feel free to reach out to us one and all of the Farukhi Family.

May Allah grant him Janaat-e-Firdaus and all of you the Sabr and Himaath to go through this difficult period.

We knew each other since child hood. Shahid was very helpful to everyone and he always use to say, “I feel so proud and happy if anyone ask any favor, help from me”, am proud to say I also adopted this habit from him.
We used to smoke together, when I first time went to visit him in US, he disclosed that he stopped smoking because of his daughters but allowed me to smoke in basement or out side home, but I did not smoked for 3 days when I stayed with him, he was jewel.
When first time he was going to US, there was restrictions on doctors to go abroad, without taking NOC and I helped him out in that.
He was very straight forward person.
Three years before when I was going for bypass, he discussed in detail with me and encouraged me to go ahead, then later he followed my recovery from bypass.
May Allah rest his soul in peace and gives him highest place in heaven. Ameen
