M. Homayun Alagheband
1938 - 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Homayun Alagheband on July 3, 2021 at the age of 83 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Homayun is survived by his wife, Farideh, his children Parissa (Christos), Babak (Elisa), his grandchildren Nikou, Ariana and Leila, his sisters Mahdokht and Maryam, and his sister-in-law Firouzeh (Kamran) and their children Kia and Ranna.
Homayun was born in Tehran, Iran. He pursued his advanced studies in Mechanical Engineering in Germany. Following his professional experiences working for and setting up manufacturing plants for Citroen of France, Noritake of Japan, and Mann of Germany in Iran, he decided to start his own manufacturing company, Alborz Filter Mfg Corp., producing filters for cars, trucks, and industrial usage. He soon became the largest such producer in Iran with well over half the country’s market share. His engineering acumen and skills are renowned, and to this day highly respected in the industry. He was very active in business as in life up to the very end. His work ethic is an example to many. He believed every problem, big or small, had a solution and he was determined to find it. He succeeded in most if not all circumstances. He will be sorely missed.
Visitations will be held in his honor this Sunday July 11, 2021, between 2-5 pm at Alfred Dallaire MEMORIA, 1111, avenue Laurier Ouest, Montreal (Québec) H2V 2L3.
