He moved from Tehran to Nashville, TN in 1985 in an attempt to make a better life for his 3 children and wife. Leaving his family and the life he knew behind.

  1. My thoughts go out to all of you. I remember at Jon and Haleh’s wedding he was teaching us the Iranian traditional dances and explaining what they meant. We just met him at the wedding, but he made us feel like we were welcome members to his family. I know you are all proud of his great spirit and warm heart. I am honored to have known him.

  2. Mr Nekoorad was a very kind man with a smile on his face all of the time. Our condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren and rest of family.

  3. Although I did not know Rahim personally, I am fortunate to know his son Homayoun (Mike). Mike has told me many stories about his father and I know this world has lost a great man and loving father and grandfather. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Nekoorad family.

  4. I did not know this fine g gentleman, but knowing Dr. Long, seeing how caring, kind and loving she is, certainly reflects the father who raised her.
