Fred Filsoof passed away in the arms of his family Nov. 26, 2019, and will be deeply missed.
“Uncle Fred” was born in Kermanshah, Iran, and lived an extraordinary life. The eldest of four children, he came to United Stated at the young age of 18, where he attended Belmont Abbey College and later North Carolina State, where he graduated with a degree in engineering.
He did all of this while supporting his family after his father passed away. Fred then received his law degree from Emory Law School and established a very successful law practice. Forever moving forward, Fred then founded a real estate management and development company, which also achieved incredible success.
Notwithstanding his professional accomplishments, Fred’s proudest achievement was always his family. He was the best son any parents could ask for and was an outstanding husband and father. He was predeceased by his mother, Saltanat Filsoof, and his father, Davoud “David” Filsoof. He was also predeceased by his brother-in-law, Alvin Siegel.
Fred is survived by his soulmate Terasa Filsoof; four children, David Filsoof, Nader Filsoof, Joshua Filsoof and Rachel Filsoof; granddaughter Charlotte Filsoof; two sisters, Mimi Siegel (Larry Cohen) and Mina Rose; and brother Adel Filsoof (Guity Filsoof).
Funeral services were held Nov. 29, 2019, at Ahavath Achim Synagogue. Interment followed at Greenwood Cemetery. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
