In Memory of
William B. Mutammara
-

William Behnam Mutammara, age 90, was called home to be with the Lord on the morning of April 17, 2020. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 45 years Widad Jirjees Sarah, parents Behnam Naoum Mutammara and Hayat Hanna Sarsam, brother Ramzi and sister Muneera. He is survived by his loving sons Ala’ Mutammara of San Francisco, CA and Atheel Mutammara, his wife Sahar Hadad Mutammara, children Matthew, Alexander and John Mutammara of Houston, TX. He is also survived by his current wife Mahasin Houdi, his brother Khalid Mutammara and his wife Mareen Saffar of Mosul, Iraq, sister Widad Mutammara and husband Laith Kellow of Detroit, MI and many nephews and nieces.

William was born in December 1929 in Mosul, Iraq where he grew up in the family house before moving to Baghdad where earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the College of Pharmacy and Chemistry. Soon after graduation he began a long career in the cement industry starting with the cement plant in Badoosh (near Mosul) and soon rose to become the plant manager in the late 1950’s. After his marriage in 1960 he joined the Iraqi Cement Company as the manager of the cement plant in Baghdad. In the early 1970’s he accepted a position at the Ministry of Industry as an expert in all things related to the cement industry where he continued to work until he immigrated to the United States with his family in 1982. William was very much loved and respected by his subordinates, peers and superiors who appreciated his hard work, dedication, expertise and most of all his honesty. He was a pillar of the Iraqi industry and his name is widely synonymous with the rise of the cement industry in Iraq and the Middle East.

William was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather who truly cherished spending time and getting involved with his children and grandchildren. He was an extremely generous, kind hearted and fun-loving gentleman who enjoyed music and dancing and will always be remembered as the life of the party. Faith and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ were a big part of William’s life, and were instrumental during his battle with Alzheimer’s disease that consumed him in the last years of his life.

In honor of his practice of generosity the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donation be made in  William’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association or to the charity of your choice.

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 2pm at Memorial Oaks Cemetery.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. William at The Avenues of Fort Bend while working there for almost three years. I will never forget the countless hours spent singing and dancing with him. He always put a huge smile on my face. Thank you to his family for giving me the opportunity to become part of his family and enjoy his later years of life with him. I will forever cherish our time spent together. Rest easy Mr. William. ❤️
