Memorial for Moulay Aouragh

Our beloved friend, brother, husband, and father, Moulay Aouragh passed away on Tuesday, May 23, 2017; just over one week after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Surviving Moulay are his wife and six-month old son. 

Moulay moved to the United States from Morocco in 2001. Shortly after coming to the U.S., he served as an interpreter and translator in the United States Army from 2004 to 2013. He excelled during his time in service and deployed several times to the war-zone. After separating from the Army, Moulay pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Colorado Colorado Springs. During this time, he met his lovely wife Asmaa and they were married soon after. After graduating in May of 2016, Moulay chose to continue serving his country and joined the civil service to work as an engineer for the Air Force. In the Fall of 2016, Asmaa and Moulay had their first child, Elyas. Moulay was a wonderful father and a loving husband. He was very religious, was involved with his Mosque, and enjoyed the company of his friends and family. He will be sorely missed.

Please help us raise money to support the family with medical and funeral expenses, in memory of our beloved Moulay.
