Mr. Jahan Barghi, 66

~~Jahan Barghi, age 66, of Braselton passed away Saturday, September 28, 2019.  He was born March 26, 1953 to the late Khalil and Mahrokh Barghi.
Jahan is survived by his wife, Elvira Barghi; sons Marco Barghi and Bijan Barghi;. of Braselton; his sisters, Nardin Partonia and Nasrin Iob of France.
Jahan was retired from General Electric, where he was the Executive Director of International Power Services for 36 years.

He was a passionate cyclist, competing in many long distance marathons, but mainly for leisure and pleasure. He was also an avid reader and writer of classical Persian poetry. He was  known for his brilliance in business, his fairness and insight, and his appreciation of life and family.

Jahan loved life and lived it to the fullest. His taste for adventures and nature found him diving in the Red Sea, bunjee jumping in Fiji, dog sleighing in the North Pole or skiing in the black diamond slops in the Alpes to name few.   He was devoted to his family and adored his two sons, his job and his bicycle.
His generosity reached to many whom never got to learn his benefactor’s name.
He was a man of high integrity, moral and ethics. He lived all those values by example every day of his beautiful life.

Jahan’s wife and sons, would like to thank friends, neighbors, medical team and technical advisors, that took remarkable care of him.

Dearest Elvira, I just read the beautiful obituary of Jahan, it is incredible and so loving and motivational. Going dog sledding in the North Pole! He was an amazing spirited person. I apologize but I won’t be able to make it today... my job just assigned me projects with deadlines at the end of the day and it is very difficult for me to leave due to trying to prove myself here. I wanted to let you know that mentality and spiritually I am with you and your family and think about you. I am praying for him, you and your family as you guys are going through this experience. He was a wonderful person, someone I deeply respected and admired. My thoughts and many blessings for you and your family. Love you all. Andres Emre

What an incredible soul and spirit of a man he was and still is . He taught all of us in his remarkable way. I felt strongly the presence of God in his presence. May you find peace and freedom in his peace and freedom

Dearest Elvira, Marco, Bijan and the extended family, Our deepest and most heartfelt condolences on the passing of Jahan. May his beautiful memory be eternal. We will not forget what a special man he was. His zest for life was contagious. He made his adventures seem like a stroll in the park. He never bragged about his outstanding accomplishments. He simply stated “I like it, it makes me happy“ then giggle (which we can still hear in our mind). And when you were in his company, his constant smile was contagious too! He had the power to make all who were in his presence feel special. I (Annette) personally feel blessed that I was able to hug and kiss Jahan during my visit to Atlanta last month. That familiar smile warmed my heart. Though Jahan is gone, his legacy lives on in his wife and sons. To you three and the family, we pray that God bless his soul in eternal peace and give you all the strength moving forward. He is in a better place, a guardian angel watching over all those that he loved. All our love, Annette & Nabil Habayeb

Dearest Elvira, Marco, Bijan, Jahan was a role model through his passion, energy and drive. I still remember when he took us cycling in the mountains! He was the youngest and fittest among us all! I will always cherish those days we spent together in Dubai as a family and Jahan will always be remembered. May his soul rest in peace, and may God give you all the strength to overcome these challenging moments.

Dear Elvira & family, Sorry for this belated message, we only heard recently & needless to say, were very saddened by the news & before that, news of his terrible illness. Jahan to me was someone I always enjoyed seeing & talking to, always wishing I saw more of him & heard more of his stories. Few people, to whom you may not be so close, actually leave a mark on you like that & I will always keep fond memories of his positivity & cheerfulness whatever the circumstances... & yours, too. I'd like to remember Jahan like that & with the smile in that beautiful photo on the bike, as if waving goodbye to us all... until we meet again. With sincere sympathies, love & prayers to you all, Bassem & Elita

Maria Teresa Sanchez 2019-10-17 04:38:20
Dear Jahan, I’m loosing another child with you. It’s an unbeatable pain that a mother should never live to see. It goes against the circle of life. You were a magnificent husband to my daughter, an exemplary father to my grandchildren and a warm and caring son-in-law to us. You left a very empty seat at our table. We have no doubts that God welcomed you in Heaven and now you rest in eternal peace. Your memory will live vividly in our hearts. Abuela
Semih Akinci 2019-10-29 12:02:03
