It is with the deepest of grief that we deliver to you the heartbreaking news of the death of Joseph Sanbar, former chairman of Saba IP. He passed on peacefully in the company of his family on Saturday, March 11, 2017.

Mr. Sanbar served the firm tirelessly over a period of more than 50 years, leaving behind now only those fond memories we have of him. His positive outlook on life was most admirable, even contagious, as those who knew him would attest. With an infectious smile ever present on his face, Mr. Sanbar’s dedication, brilliance, and talent will be remembered by everyone who had the privilege of working with him. Such an extraordinary person he was.

He is survived by his wife Georgette and their son Maziad.
