Dr. Nabil Tadros Who can find a good man, a righteous man who walks in his integrity? How blessed are his sons after him. Proverbs 20:6. Hear my son and receive my sayings and the years of your life will be many. Proverbs 4:10. Dr. Nabil Tadros was received into the arms of his Lord and Savior on July 31, 2013. Nabil was born on the banks of the Nile River in Sohag, Egypt to a large, loving and cosmopolitan family. He is a descendant of the ancient Pharaonic Egyptians that were the first Christians converted by Saint Mark in the First Century. Although Egypt was invaded many times, the Coptic Christians have remained steadfast in their faith to this day. Nabil received his first of many medical degrees from The University of Cairo. In 1967 he was working for the United States Naval Medical Research Unit in Cairo and was forewarned of an impending war with Israel. He was able to catch the last flight out of Egypt to England. Nabil proceeded to earn medical degrees in England, Canada and The United States. In 1974 he became the first Chief of Pathology at the new Doctors Hospital in Laredo and also practiced at Laredo Medical Center. Nabil cherished spending time with his family, traveling around the world and relaxing and swimming at the beach which reminded him of his youth on the Nile and summers spent in Alexandria. He passed his love of travel to his children. He also enjoyed playing tennis and riding his bike daily. His family was fortunate to live in a multicultural home where learning was fun. Nabil had a unique personality, was a gentleman of the highest order, moral descent and a wonderful provider. We are left with a multitude of stories that will become lore and that will bring smiles and much laughter forever. We will miss you deeply. Nabil is preceded in death by his father, Abdel- Messih Tadros, a successful attorney and businessman in Egypt; his mother, Matilda Youssef Tadros; sister and brother-in-law, Venice and William Abadeer; brother, Mourad Tadros; brother-in-laws, Iskander El-Magrissy and Amin Shurobim; nephews, Teddy Tadros, Jon Tadros, Wagdi Abadeer; niece, Nadia Abadeer; father and mother-in-law, Francis and Maria Green Maher; brother-in-law, Victor Maher.
