Asgerali Abbasbhai Taiabjee: 1929 – 2010


With sadness we announce Asger Taiabjee aged 81, passed suddenly on Monday morning after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

He died as he lived, peacefully and with the love and adoration of all those that have ever met him. His gentle smile and sensible guidance led many lives to happinesss.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 40 years Linda, two sons Timothy and Johar, two daughter’s-in-law Charlea and Kelly, and two wonderful grandchildren Jackson and Samuel.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of these charities that were important to Asger:

  • Our deepest condolances to you and your entire family Joe. He will definitely be missed. Lee, Angie & Cooper

  • He was an elegant man – always happy to see your friends, always smiling, always a kind word from his lips. He looked at Jack and Sam with such adoration. This is a terrible loss, but I see a lot of your dad in you and that is a beautiful legacy.

  • Our heartfelt condolences from my family to yours on this very sad news about Asgar. Our love and thoughts are with you all during this devastating time. Such wonderful people and wonderful neighbours for over 25 years.

    A special verse for you that I hope will bring some comfort, as it did for me upon the loss of my parents to cancer:
    “God’s Garden”

    “God looked around his garden,
    And found an empty space
    He then looked upon the Earth
    And saw your tired face.
    He put his arms around you
    And lifted you to rest,
    God’s garden must be beautiful
    For in you he took the best.
    He saw the road was getting rough
    And the hills were hard to climb,
    So he closed your weary eyes
    And whispered “Peace be thine”.
    It broke our hearts to lose you
    But you do not go alone,
    For part of us went with you,
    When Jesus called you home.”

  • To Linda and Family,

    My sincerest condolences to you and your family. Asger was a very kind and gracious man. He always had good things to say to me whenever I saw him at family gatherings and social functions. I was priveleged to have met and known him through all these years. May he rest in peace and God Bless you and your family always.


  • My dear Linda and Family; brothers and sister & Families:

    I feel in my heart the same feeling of grief and sorrow you have in your hearts for the untimely “departure” from this earthly life of your beloved and faithful husband and loving Father having lived together happily in the grace of love and devotion.

    I always taken in my heart the feeling of fondest love, affection and fervent prayers for Asgar as one of the best intimate friend and brother for his candid and soft way of expressing himself in our conversations when ever we were in social gatherings and in my birthday parties and your own invitations to attend your parties.

    The driven purpose and destiny of his only gift of life has been achieved and accomplished with dignity, integrity and prestige and honesty and trustworthy as a friend and a member of the commonions of society; the candle that Almighty God gave him when he was conceived in the sacred womb of his beloved that had illuminated the successes of his life is now consumed; “Life is a Sacred Gift from God and God will santify him in His Kingdom in Heaven to repose in eternal peace.

    We bid farewell to Asgar and In Jesus Name, we pray.

    Dear Linda and Family go on to “achieve and accomplish the driven purpose and destiny of life.”

    Receive my and my family’s fondest love, affection and fervent prayers, just as well your beloved Parents.
    Tata Alex Parucha, Sr.
