Omar J. Ghanim
South Plainfield, NJ

Omar J. Ghanim, 37, of South Plainfield, NJ passed away on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at his home. He was born in Plainfield and resided in South Plainfield for over 15 years.
Omar was a very kind, gentle soul with a bit of edge, and had a natural engineering mind which was logical and sensible, however a bit witty. He was always driven and challenging himself to learn and do more to better his life. His smile, laugh, and love for telling jokes would always light up a room. He was an athlete, loved to sing, act silly, play poker, travel, and ground himself with mother nature. Omar was loved unconditionally and spending time with his family was what he cherished most and will be sadly missed forever and always.
He is preceded in death by his beloved maternal and paternal grandparents.
Surviving are his beloved parents, Norma Naser of Fair Lawn, NJ and Jamal Ghanim of South Plainfield, NJ; his cherished daughter, Aaliyah Ghanim of North Plainfield, NJ; 2 dear brothers, Issa of South Plainfield, NJ and iSam of NY, NY; his loving sister, Allia and husband John Khouri of Fairlawn, NJ; 2 adored nieces, Julia and Gabriella; and his adored nephew, Joshua.
