Obituary of Attalla Armanyous Koddas
September 15, 1936 – February 26, 2022
Peacefully passed away at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, on Saturday February 26, 2022 at the age of 85 years.
Beloved husband of Amal Armanious. Dear father of Ashraf (Afaf) Armanious, Hany (Sally) Armanious. Loving grandfather of Tony, Natalie, Becky (Nathan), Hannah, Joshua, and Jacob.
Born in Sohag, Egypt on September 15, 1936. Immigrated to Canada in 2001 after retiring from The Arabic Company for the manufacturing of telephones. Attalla loved the Lord and shared the gospel with almost everyone he met. He never preached and was never a leader at the church but he ministered and shared the gospel with everyone he met. He was a prayer warrior and had a long list of names of friends, family, pastors, and leaders that he prayed for daily. His famous words are “I am praying for you by name”. Attalla is now rejoicing and celebrating with Jesus where there is no sickness and pain.
One of Attalla’s favourite verses is:
“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.”
And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come;
Still my soul sings Your praise unending,
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, worship His holy Name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I’ll worship Your holy Name
