Ali Akhyari Memorial Fund

We are in mourning over the loss of Ali on Sep 27, 2019, taken far too young resulting from a motorcycle accent returning home from work.

Ali was a wonderful father, husband and friend, who loved to share that energy with his family and those around him. Everyone who knew him would agree he had an infectious, room-brightening smile. Ali worked for several area newspapers reporting on local events and contributing insightful opinion pieces. These works persist in our digital age and now serve as a window into Ali’s heart. Ali was also an avid outdoorsman running a small business sharing the Low Country through kayak and paddle board tours.   

Please consider helping Ali’s family in this moment of need as they work through this difficult time. Donations will go directly to Ali’s family, his wife Austen and two young children, Rain and Cyrus.
