Joseph Moussakhani, MD 1932 - 2020
On Friday, January 31, 2020, Dr. Joseph Moussakhani went home to be with his Heavenly Father after a brief illness. He was at home surrounded by his loving family. Born into an Armenian family in Tehran, Iran, he came to the United States in 1958 to further his medical education and eventually came to Atlanta, GA where he completed an OB-GYN Residency at Saint Joseph’s Infirmary. It was there that he met his wife, Sharon Bowers. They enjoyed 54 years together. In 1970 Dr. Moussakhani began a practice in OB-GYN that span 30 years, delivering over 3000 babies. He was well respected by his colleagues and loved by his patients. He was a collector and an amazing cook but his favorite pastime was family, especially the grandchildren he was so proud of and loved so much. He was active in his church, Grace Snellville and enjoyed ushering on Sunday mornings and worshiping with his friends. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Moussakhani; son, Tony Moussakhani (Lori Thomas Moussakhani); Daughter, Laura Moussakhani; son, Phillip Moussakhani (Nisha Farrell Moussakhani); grandchildren Joseph Moussakhani, Andrew Moussakhani, Rowan Moussakhani, Ethan Moussakhani, Chyna Spivey Grogan (Sean), Cole Spivey, Chandler Spivey and great-grandson, Griffin Grogan. We will miss his enthusiasm for learning new things his servant’s heart and his warm bear hugs.
