Abel Desalegn

Abel was a young man with a beautiful soul. A son, a mother would pray for. A brother, to be proud of. A friend, you can count on. Above All, he was a human being in its purest form, and a very special and unique individual. Abel was named after Abel in the bible. Like his namesake he lost his life in his prime, but lived a humble and caring life

Abel lived his life to the fullest and touched so many people during his time here with us, as evident by outpouring of grief following his passing. He loved his family profoundly. He was a devoted son, grandson, nephew, brother, and friend. Abel was a comfort for his mom, devoted to her in everyway. Abel took all of the roles in his life to heart and he strove to honor, support, and guide and most importantly, protect his family. He was at his happiest when he was surrounded by his family. His devotion to his family was the foundation of his actions – the anchor that defined and shaped his life.

We miss you for memories we shared; we miss you for friendships forged; we miss you for the laughter we shared…and we miss you, each of us in our own personal ways, for all the special intangible ways that your touched our hearts – ways that cannot be defined by words.

A wise man once said “In the end, its not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” The life in Abel’s years was filled with love, family, and everything in between.
