Gebreil G Welde

On September 27, 1959, Mr. Endale Berhan Gebriel was born in the city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in an area commonly known as Kaghen Sefer. Mr. Endale was born to his father Memhir Berhan Seshu, a priest at the Holy Trinity Cathedral and his mother Mrs. N’tirwork Teferra. Young Endale attended Fidel, Nebab & Wodassie Mariam at Yeneta Kidane Mariam. Completed primary and secondary education at Kokebe Tsibah Secondary School.

In 1972, Endale, lived in Gondar for two years with his aunt Mrs. Zewudnesh Teferra. Endale returned to Addis Ababa to continue his education, he graduated in 1980 from Asefa Wossen High School. Due to the political climate at the time, Endale uprooted his life to move to Sudan. While living in Sudan, Endale had his first child, Sami, with Tensu Woldu. In pursuit of a better life, Endale moved to Alexandria, Virginia on June 8, 1989.

While living in VA, he often travelled to Washington D.C. for work, this is where he met Haimanot Gedamu. On January 29, 1994, Mr. Endale and Mrs. Haimanot celebrated their holy Matrimony. With this union, Mr. Endale and Mrs. Haimanot bore two beautiful children, Kidest and Helena Gebriel. After for three years, Mr. Endale and Mrs. Haimanot wanted a better place to raise their two daughters and provide them with educational opportunities. In 1999, Mr. Endale and Mrs. Haimanot, along with their two daughters moved to Charlotte, North Carolina.

In 2021, Mr. Endale was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. He fought tirelessly for one year, the severity of his diagnosis overcame him on the night of January 31, 2022. In accordance to his will, Mr. Endale Berhan will be laid to rest in Gondar Debre Medhanit Abune Abi’ezIg’e Kidane-Mihret Merko-rios Church on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.

In his lifetime, Endale was known to be a kind and respectful person. For anyone that had the opportunity and pleasure to meet him, they will attest Endale was a man of faith, loved his family and community, and a patriotic Ethiopian. He is survived by his wife Mrs. Haimanot Gedamu, his three children Samuel, Kidest and Helena. Endale was very social, readily welcoming people to his home, he was hospitable, had a great sense of humor, and was a generous soul. He will be greatly missed.

May God rest Wolde-Gebriel’s soul in heaven and let comfort and peace reign over his beloved family and friends.
