Manoochehr Razvan

February 24, 1934 ~ July 17, 2022 (age 88)



Manoochehr Razvan was the eldest of ten children. Born in Tehran, Iran, he spent the beginning chapters of his life in Esfahan, before returning to Tehran where he would eventually meet his future wife, Zinat. Manoochehr was one of three suitors to court the incomparable Zinat on that fateful day. Fortunately for us all, she saw in him the most potential to build a beautiful life and family. Together they embarked on a lifelong romance of over 64 years. In 1979, Manoochehr and Zinat navigated social and political turmoil to move their family to the U.S where they rebuilt their lives and home. One of the greatest sources of pride in Manoochehr’s life was the family he and Zinat raised together. He treasured his four children: Daryoosh, Farnoosh, Mehrdad, and Katayoon; and six grandchildren: Yasi, Assal, Bijan, Arash, Nikki, and Davis. He loved with abundance: Elizabeth, Sohrab, Jeff, and Liam.  


Manoochehr had many accomplishments in his 88 years. Prior to settling into his long career in Accounting, he was a teacher and the Chief Financial Manager of the national program for childcare and development, chaired by Queen Farah Pahlavi. He held two degrees in Accounting and Auditing and became one of a handful of people in Iran that passed the stringent requirements to become a Forensic Accountant. Manoochehr was a creative person at his core. He was an avid gardener, potter, artist, and lover of poetry and classical music. A creative and nurturing man, he brought joy, kindness, and a welcoming smile wherever he went – even acquaintances would endearingly call him "Papa." Manoochehr cultivated a flourishing garden where he enjoyed watching his grandchildren play on sunny California days. In addition to creating a beautiful home with his wife, he fostered the love of a rich local community – a home away from home. He will be deeply missed and remembered fondly by his loved ones across time and generations. Manoochehr’s passing marks his reunion with his cherished daughter, Farnoosh, and beloved wife, Zinat.
