Ali Dastmalchian lived his life with energy, passion and an an unmeasurable amount of love. His friendships span decades, language barriers and time zones, and he always made time for everybody in his life. He was a great support and a loud cheerleader. He was an incredible cook, a thoughtful leader and a brilliant academic. He was also a perfect father to Kia and Nikisa and a magnificent husband to his true love, Ann.
It's difficult to put into words what this loss means to his family, friends and colleagues. We invite you to share your memories, stories and condolences on this page, as it would bring his family joy and comfort to hear from those who loved Ali.
We will get together later, when it's safe, in person to celebrate Ali's life the way he would have wanted us to.
