Mr. Adel Fansah of Adel Fansah Company passed away on the night of 10th of September, 2020 at the age of 93 in Aleppo, SYRIA.
He was a living witness to the practice of the soap manufacturing, continuing the old style of soap making, when there were neither electricity, gas, nor petroleum, nor caustic soda. He helped the family business from a very young age. He was a true living witness to this soap manufacturing. He transferred his skill splendidly to the next generation, even in the rapid changes of the world,. For about 25 years ago, he passed on the method and spirit of the manufacturing to his son, Mr. Talal Fansah. However, he had and has been the continuously most important person in his role, spreading of the spirit for both the Fansah Company and us. We were told that he commuted to the factory earlier than anyone else to check the facilities with his cane in his hand. During the war, he stayed in Aleppo, allegedly hearing the sound of the severe warfare every day in his house. When we visited Aleppo last January,2019, he told us about again manufacturing of the soap in the traditional way with his eyes sparkling brilliantly like a boy. We have a deep feeling of sorrow as if we lost our own family member. We express our deepest condolences to his family. We pray with all our hearts for him to rest in peace.
