In Remembrance of Abel Mengistab

Abel Mengistab. This is the name of a loving, bright, and inspirational 20-year-old that we lost Thursday, June 18th, 2020. Anyone who knew Abel would confirm that describing Abel in three words is nearly impossible, as these three words are only the beginning of how incredible he was. 

Abel made his mark as a loving son, a supportive friend to many, an excellent student, a dedicated volunteer, an outstanding role model, and so much more that we had yet to discover. No matter if you were older or younger than Abel, he most definitely played a role model figure in your life. Abel was beyond his time, with deep-rooted interests ranging from politics, to social justice, to the arts; Abel truly did it all. He was and will continue to be a role model and inspiration for us all. As we live on, we will make sure that Abel’s legacy continues to live on with all that we do. 

This GoFundMe under the name, Naomi Solomon (as a family friend) is a way for the Eritrean and Canadian community to support Abel’s parents, Dagmawit Abraham and Mengistab Tsegay and family. At the request of his classmates and friends, this account has been created to further support the family with  upcoming projects to celebrate and honour Abel’s life. Thank you in advance for your support.
