Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Natalie and I are very sorry for your loss. You and Fahmy have been dear friends for many years. Even though they were often short, we would look forward to our meetings at St Ignatius on Saturdays. - Posted by: Harold Hutton (Colleague ) on: Oct 29, 2021
Laila and Marianne, I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Farag’s wisdom, wit and wry humour illuminated the work of Shakespeare and gave me a lifelong love of Anglo-Irish literature, especially the work of WB Yeats. His personal example shaped the whole trajectory of my academic life (and especially my teaching) after UW, for which I will always be grateful. - Posted by: Peter Denton (Former student, colleague and friend) on: Oct 28, 2021
I have only positive memories of Fahmy. A kind and considerate man. I imagine him as a fine teacher. - Posted by: Allen Mills (Colleague) on: Oct 28, 2021
