Obituary

Nicola Farris Alhaj, 74 years old, went to be with our Lord on Sunday, May 14, in San Antonio. He was born in the city of Damascus, Syria, on January 1, 1943 to Farris Alhaj and Asia Alhaddad.

Nicola had a special effect on everyone he came in contact with, he loved people and was loved by everyone, everywhere he went. Nicola was one of the kindest & the most giving person you would ever meet. He would give you his shirt off his back. Life for him was too valuable to waste on being upset over anything. One of his families' greatest memory of him was when he would feed his neighborhood after his retirement from his restaurant business, making pizza and welcoming everyone. Even the local policemen would stop by. He was a loving brother, husband, father, uncle & grandfather. A trusted friend to all, he was referred to as "Abu Farris."

Nicola was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his loving wife of over 40 years, Seham Alhaj; 3 children; Farris Alhaj and wife Kristie, Nicole Alhaj and husband Paul, and Rami Alhaj and wife Mercedes; 6 grandchildren, Kayla, Nicolas, Ava, Sloan, George, and Isla; and 5 siblings, Jorget, Taufik, Shafik, Amal, and Said.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, May 18, from 4:00-7:00 P.M. at Porter Loring Mortuary North.

He will be missed dearly.
