Tribute to Fereidoon Demehri


It is with deepest sadness we inform you that Mr. Fereidoon Demehri, the founder of our Zoroastrian News Agency (ZNA), passed away on Sunday January 18, 2015 at 12:57 PM in Vancouver Canada as a result of an unfortunate and untimely car accident. Unfortunate is an understatement as the radar detector on the camera that filmed the event, clearly shows no fault from Mr. Demehri. Mr. Demehri was an icon in the Zoroastrian and Iranian communities and will always be remembered for his enthusiasm in culture, the arts, music, sports, films, ancient history, and charity. FYI, some of his works, which includes his O’shihan Cultural Organization, ZNA, Z-film Festivals, etc. have been mentioned in his biography shown below.

His story is one of active generosity and a heartfelt devotion. For him, Zoroastrianity was more than a cultural identity, it was a way to bridge gaps and unite all cultures. It was more than an appreciation for the arts, it was about creating opportunity for our youth to shine as artists. It was more than announcements and events, but rather a vision to create a global community that celebrated and honored the Zoroastrian culture and faith.

He is survived by his wife, his two daughters, and his grandchildren. Fereidoon leaves a legacy that has and will continue to inspire many. The weaver of the web that has for so many years and through so many initiatives brought us closer together to celebrate and to remember our rich cultural heritage, and to create and share new memories rooted in our culture and community.

Please join us as we celebrate and remember his life and his vision. May his spirit continue to inspire us and strengthen our community as he did so tirelessly when he walked amongst us.

    The only constant is change. Mr. Fereidoon Demehri was a mighty source of change, a bridge-builder, an eye-opener and a heart-warmer. I stand in awe of the individual that he crafted himself into and marvel at his legacy. Please know that no such energy is every is lost, it only evolves into something more beautiful and precious through time, through us, as well as through elements unseen and unknown. I thank Fereidoon for his commitment to humanity and many auspicious undertakings. In his lifespan he did the work of many, and many have benefitted. In the same breath, let us also acknowledge his loving and supportive family and circle of friends who undoubtedly served as inspiration and grounded this great Zoroastrian. May Fereidoon always live in our hearts and fond memories. With love and respect, Behrouz Farsi
