In Memoriam: Imre Gazda (February 1, 1943 - August 31, 2007)
We mourn the loss of Imre Gazda, President of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Magyar Cultural Circle who passed away on Friday August 31st, 2007 at the age of 64 after a brief but courageous battle with laryngeal cancer..
Imre was born February 1, 1943, in Hungary and spent his childhood in Mezokovesd and Eger, Hungary. He went to university in Russia and received a master's of engineering degree from the I.M. Gubkin Moscow Institute of Oil and Gas Industry in 1965. After a brief stay in Austria, he immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1960s, where he began working for Otis Energy Corporation (later Halliburton Energy Services). He had worked as a mechanical engineer extraordinaire at Halliburton since 1969 and was awarded numerous patents during his 38 loyal years of service to the company.
Everyone whose life he touched will immensely miss him. He was preceded
in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Pal Gazda.
Please join us at the Cistercian Abbey at 7:30 PM on Monday September 10th, 2007 as we say goodbye to a friend and to a great servant of Hungarians in Texas and indeed around the world.
The Gazda family has requested that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the Metroplex Magyar Cultural Circle (MMCC) or the Cistercian Abbey. Donations in his name appreciated:
