Obituary of Georges Fouad Bathiche


It is with great sadness and dismay to announce the passing of Georges Fouad Bathiche.  After a relatively short battle with cancer, Georges died peacefully in hospital with his wife and two children by his side.   Georges was the loving and caring husband of Rima Turjman-Bathiche for 40 years and a devoted, beloved father of Fouad Georges Bathiche and Sana Georges Bathiche.  He was also the brother of Gaby Fouad Bathiche, Nadia Bathiche-Elias and Abla Bathiche.

Born in Nazareth, to a well natured Roman Catholic Lebanese family in 1943, Georges displayed nothing shy of kindness and love throughout his life.  He touched and genuinely helped everyone he knew.  Georges attended Frère Catholic High School in Lebanon and was recognized for his strong academic achievements.  In 1960, he went to the USA to study engineering at Widener University in Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1964 with a B.Sc. in Engineering. 

He Immigrated to Canada in 1991 with his wife and two children. He will be greatly missed and remembered for his altruism and great devotion to his children and wife.  He embodied the fundamental principle of “do more to others than oneself.”  Georges never shied away from helping his family and providing unwavering advice and support when it was needed the most.  He was very loved by his family who will miss him greatly and cherish many fond memories of him. May God bless him forever in heaven and let his soul rest in eternal peace.
