In memory of my father and professor; Prof. Dr. Khalil M. Ahmed
انا لله وانا اليه راجعون
يا أيتها النفس المطمئنة ارجعي إلى ربك راضية مرضية فادخلي في عبادي وادخلي جنتي
On the 29th of March 2009 my father and my professor Prof. Dr. Khalil M. Ahmed of the Faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University passed away peacefully in the comfort of his own house in Alexandria, Egypt. An obituary by our dear friend and professor Dr. Mina Abdel Malek of the Faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University and the American University in Cairo is published here in the Egyptian daily paper “Al-Masry Al-Youm” in his honor. A translation of an earlier version of the obituary is attached.
Prof. Dr. Khalil is survived by his wife and my mother Prof. Dr. Awatif Hafez of the School of Nursing, Alexandria University, his daughter any my sister Dr. Mona Khalil of the School of Medicine, Alexandria University, his son and my brother Mohamed Khalil Ahmed of Microsoft, and myself. He is remembered by all of us, his extended family, his friends, colleagues and former students.
I am honored to be my dad’s son and student.
