Adli Abraham

Obituary Condolences

IN MEMORY OF PASTOR ADLI ABRAHAM ('DADDY') WHO FELL ASLEEP IN THE ARMS OF JESUS ON JANUARY 11, 2006. Adli was born July 6, 1933 in Menia, Egypt, the son of the late Abrahim and Aziza Ingly. 'Daddy', as everybody called him, was a gentle and compassionate man after God's own heart. He touched so many lives while doing missionary work around the world. In 1965, he was greatly involved in the Lilian Trasher Orphanage located in North Africa and continued to spread the gospel to many nations. This Godly love was seen in Adli's selfless way of putting others before himself. The young boys from the orphanage looked up to Adli as their father. From teaching the children how to pray to educating them to be curious, confident, capable, and calm, Adli did it all. He taught the boys that the best way to act in most situations was just to be themselves and to always look to God in all of life's circumstances. 'Daddy' was an athlete for most of his life and prided himself with confidence and self-assurance. He excelled in basketball, field hockey, and soccer and he would be the first to flaunt his sports injuries to the world. His scars and fractures represented the integrity and the adventurist for which he was famous for. Along with a merciful, compassionate heart, Adli had a love for the poor and he stood strong for honesty, morality, and goodness. Adli is preceded in death by his loving wife, Nargis, of almost 40 years. He is survived by 2 brothers; Roshdy Ingly of Egypt and Makram Ingly of Bethany; 3 sisters, Mary of Oklahoma City, Samira and Emily of Egypt; 3 daughters, Lilian and husband, Atif Mehana of Miami, Florida, Suesanne Abraham of Chicago, and Betsy and husband, Hany Girgis, of Oklahoma City; 3 grandsons, Matthew Mehana of Miami, Florida, Jonathan Mehana of Miami, Florida, and Alex Girgis of Oklahoma City, one granddaughter, Mia Girgis, of Oklahoma City, and many boys from the orphanage (now scattered here and there) whom Adli considered to be his sons. Adli also leaves behind a woven tapestry of relatives and friends. Our Adli will be greatly missed but we know that one day, we will meet again in a place where 'the roses bloom forever.' Services were held Friday, January 13, 2006, at Mercer-Adams, Bethany. Interment followed at the Resurrection Cemetery. 'Rest in peace, sweet daddy.'
