Yohannes Hailu Woldegiorgis

February 27, 1964 – February 1, 2022 

Yohannes Hailu Woldegiorgis was born in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia on February 27, 1964 to his mother Sahlitu Gessesse and father Blatta Hailu Woldegiorgis. He was born and lived in his family’s house at Sidest Kilo, Addis Abeba until he graduated from Teferi Mekonnen High School. He was a caring, sharing, and generous brother, uncle, cousin, and friend to all.
Yohannes believed in the power of education and in public service. That is why he taught in Jimma province Ethiopia under the national literacy campaign and served in the military for two years. Later on, he emigrated from Ethiopia. He first went to Khartoum, Sudan and then joined his brothers and sisters in the USA. He lived in Phoenix, New York, Flagstaff, Los Angeles, Portland, and in Alexandria, VA
Yohannes is loved by his nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends around the world. He has worked in at least five (5) big corporations as a technician and as a supervisor. Because he is such a devoted and hard-working professional Yohannes is loved and respected by his colleagues everywhere.
Yohannes loved many things. He loved telling jokes and stories with a great sense of humor. He loved to laugh. He also loved bread, pasta, pasta al forno, and food in general. He loved to cook. And he loved beer. He loved to play and watch soccer. He loved to watch American football. He loved watching movies. He walked a lot. He loved to go to the gym. And he loved to go to church.
Even though he left us suddenly to go to God in heaven, his fond memories and his legacy will live in our hearts forever.
Yohannes is survived by his brothers Mulugeta Hailu and Girmachew Hailu, and his sisters Hareg Hailu, Azeb Hailu, and Konjit Hailu.
The family is deeply grateful to everyone here for being with us and for comforting us during this difficult time. Thank you for joining us in this celebration of the life of Yohannes.

His loving brothers and sisters,
Mulugeta Hailu, Hareg Hailu, Girmachew Hailu, Azeb Hailu, Konjit Hailu

ዮሐንስ ኃይሉ ወልደ ጊዮርጊስ እንደ ኢትዮጵያ አቆጣጠር የካቲት 19፣ 1956 ዓ.ም. ከእናታቸው ከወይዘሮ ሳህሊቱ ገሠሠ እና ከአባታቸው ከብላታ ኃይሉ ወልደ ጊዮርጊስ በአዲስ አበባ ኢትዮጵያ ተወለደ። ያደገው እና የሁለተኛ ደረጃ ትምህርቱን በተፈሪ መኮንን ትምህርት ቤት እስከሚያጠናቅቅ ድረስ የኖረው አዲስ አበባ በስድስት ኪሎ በሚገኘው የወላጆቹ ቤት ነው። ዮሐንስ ርህሩህ፤ ቸር፤ ለጋስ የሆነ ወንድም፤አጎት፤ዘመድ፤እና ጓደኛ ነበር።
ዮሐንስ በትምህርት እና ህብረተሰብን በማገልገል ያምን ነበር። ስለዚህም በጊዜው የነበረውን የመሠረተ ትምህርት ጥሪ ተከትሎ በጅማ ክፍለ ሐገር በአስተማሪነት እና በውትድርናም ለሁለት ዓመት አገልግሏል። ኋላም፤ በመጀመርያ ወደ ካርቱም ሱዳን በኋላም ወደ አሜሪካ ከእህት ወንድሞቹ ለመቀላቀል ሄዶ በፊኒክስ፤በኒው ዮርክ፤ በፍላግ ስታፍ፤ በሎስ አንጀለስ፤ በፖርትላንድ፤ እና በአሌክሳንድርያ ቨርጂያ ኖረ።
ዮሐንስ የእህትና የወንድሞቹ ልጆች፤ የአክስት እና የአጎቶቹ ልጆች፤ወዳጅ ዘመዶቹ ሁሉ እጅግ የሚወዱት እና የሚሳሱለት ሰው አፍቃሪ፤ ሰላማዊ፤ እና የተለየ ሰው ነበር።
ዮሐንስ በቴክኒሽያንነት እና በሥራ ተቆጣጣሪነት በአምስት ትልልቅ ኮርፖሬሽኖች ሰርቷል። በሥራ ወዳድነቱና በሰው አክባሪነቱ፤በታታሪነቱና ጉልበቱን ሳይቆጥብ በመሥራቱ በሄደበት ሁሉ የሥራ ባልደረቦቹ እጅግ የሚወዱትና የሚያከብሩት ሠራተኛ ነበር።
ዮሐንስ ተጫዋች እና ቀልደኛ፤ ተረት መናገር የሚወድ እና የሚችልበት፤ መሳቅም የሚወድ ነበር። ዳቦም ይወድ ነበር፤ ፓስታም፤ፓስታ አል ፎርኖም፤ምግብ ባጠቃላይ መሥራቱንም ሆነ መብላቱን ይወድ ነበር። ቢራም። እግር ኳስ መጫወትም ማየትም፤ ፊልም ማየትም ይወድ ነበር። በእግሩ በጠዋት ተነስቶ ረጅም መንገድ በየቀኑ ይሄድ ነበር። ስፖርት መሥራት እና ቤተ ክርስትያን መሄድም ይወድ ነበር።
ዮሐንስ በድንገት ተለይቶን ወደሰማይ አባቱ ቢሄድም ፍቅሩና በልባችን የተወው ትዝታ ግን ለዘላለም ከእኛ ዘንድ ይኖራል።
በሃዘናችን ጊዜ አብራችሁን ለነበራችሁና ላጽናናችሁን የወንድማችንን የዮሐንስን ሕይወት ስናስታውስና ስለሱም ስናመሰግን ከጎናችን ላልተለያችሁ ወዳጅ ዘመዶቻችን ሁሉ እግዚአብሔር ያክብርልን እያልን የጠለቀ ምስጋናችንን እንገልጣለን።
እጅግ የሚወዱት ወንድሞችና እህቶቹ’
ሙሉጌታ ኃይሉ፤ሐረግ ኃይሉ፤ግርማቸው ኃይሉ፤ አዜብ ኃይሉ፤ እና ቆንጂት ኃይሉ
