Read more about the life story of Ali and share your memory.
Ali Tabrizchi passed away on July 12 after fighting to stay alive to celebrate his 50th birthday with family and friends as he always had. He died during his 51st year of life leaving an immeasurable void behind. He’s painfully missed by his family, friends and all who knew him. To know Ali, was to love him. We could fill stadiums with his friends, admirers, and patients.
Ali was a warrior in life, as we all know. His sharp mind and charismatic charm were unparalleled. His gifts were his humanity, his comedic sensibility, his dedication, and his compassion. As an exceptional cardiologist, Ali was well known and loved by patients and staff alike. He was always the most positive and always the one willing to go above and beyond for anyone in his life. No matter the hour, his patients knew that he was there for them, and treated them as family. But as much as he did for his patients, Ali was by far the proudest of his family. Those who knew him, knew his greatest accomplishment was being a loving father to his three sons and an amazing uncle to his three nephews. Ali cherished his wife, his mother, and his sister. He truly loved his life and fought valiantly to stay with his family.
Strength of spirit and quality of character were very important to Ali. His example in health and in illness will not fade to anyone who knew him. This obituary would not be complete if it didn’t emphasize that Ali was a diehard New York Knicks and 49ers fan. He loved to coach sports and mentor medical students. His favorite day of the year was April Fool’s Day as every colleague and friend feared. His favorite food was Chelo Kebab and he could eat a bag of radishes every day. He loved food. He would want you to know, in his New York accent, that he is finally able to eat whatever he wants in Heaven and he is killing it as a standup comedian and prankster.
Though his passing is beyond tragic, his life has impacted others and the world in a truly outsized and tremendous way. His loss will leave a hole in our hearts, but we know that his battle on this Earth was fought with courage, integrity and superhero strength. #Forever51
