ALBERT DANGOOR 1918
Albert Dangoor was born in Baghdad, the ninth child to
Massouda and Sion Hakham Ezra Dangoor. He Studied at the
Alliance School. In 1937, he went to London where two of
his elder brothers Niazi and Abdulla were already established
in business. He attended Nottingham University where he
read economics. After finishing University, he joined his
brothers in their import- export business and remained in
London throughout the Second World War.
In 1952, there was a family reunion in Paris where he met
his cousin Doreen, daughter of Khatoun and Eliahou Hakham
Ezra Dangoor, He had not seen her since he left Baghdad
and later that year, in November, they were married in Paris
and settled in London.
Eventually Albert began working on his own and established
an import-export business of oriental carpets. His knowledge
of carpets, honesty and high standards led him to become
highly respected by all those he came into contact with,
both in and out of the Industry, during his working life
and beyond. He would always be there to offer a helping
hand, be it in business or otherwise to family, friends
and business colleagues alike.
Albert was one of the most genuine, sincere and honest
people that one could ever hope to meet. He did what was
right and spoke the truth from his heart.
Albert was first and foremost a loving, dedicated family
man, who was never happier than being with his family. He
is survived by his wife Doreen, children Sandra and Robert,
and grandchildren Natasha and Lisa, who will continue his
legacy in the community.
