Gustavo passed away on November 26, 2020 and Haydee passed away on November 27, 2020. Gustavo was born November 8, 1933 in Managua, Nicaragua to Abraham and Dolores Abdalah. He graduated from the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua where he received his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. He would then travel to Lubbock, Texas with his family and take on the position as the Chemical Processing Manager at Texas Tech University’s International Textile Center where he taught how to operate computerized machinery, instruments, and equipment. He worked there starting in 1981 and retired in 2002 at the age of 69. He was an invaluable asset to the University, working well into his 70s, providing fellow co-workers with essential training and assistance with the machinery. He was an inspiration to so many and lived to care and provide for his family. The love he shared and had for his wife Haydee transcended through time. She was the light of his life as he was hers too. Haydee was born November 14, 1934 in Managua, Nicaragua to Gilberto and Magdalena Lovo. Haydee worked as an editor for the Novedades Newspaper in Managua, Nicaragua. She married Gustavo in 1959 and was a full-time homemaker. She was the matriarch of her family, raising 3 daughters with Gustavo, all the while maintaining the household. She was an amazing cook and will always be remembered for her exquisite style and grace. She was a sweet charismatic soul to many and a loving wife to her husband Gustavo. Gustavo and Haydee are survived by daughters; Ninoska Abdalah, Samirah Abdalah and Maria Haydee Ferrell (Steven), grandchildren; Gustavo Marcus Abdalah, Steven W. Ferrell, Jr., Anna-Karina Clawson, Lisa Renee Ferrell, Katarina Marie Dibble and Cristian Eduardo Barona, ten great-grandchildren, and siblings; Juan Abdalah, Gase Abdalah, Roberto Lovo, Wilfredo Lovo, and Luz Marina Lovo.
