More Info

It is with a heavy heart that we share that Aakif Sohail, my brother in law passed away on October 15th, 2021, as a victim of gun violence. Our beloved Aakif was the innocent victim of a gun crime incident in Utah, where as a bystander he was tragically shot through the neck. Aakif was a great brother, son and husband and he will be remembered by friends and colleagues as a man with a huge heart.

Aakif was a loving husband to Nousheen, they were both expecting their first child together in about 3 months. Aakif was a great friend to many of us and kind-hearted and humble. As we know his wife would miss him the most, the loss is permanent and no amount of kind words can compensate for it. Aakif's family deserves the care, love and support to get through this pain.

Aakif was born and raised in Pennsylvania . Aakif had studied at Penn State School of Medicine, worked at Intermountain Hospital. He was an avid sportsman and loved the outdoors. Playing sports and hiking was a routine for him.

Many of you have reached out to help, we are extremely grateful for it. Please know that your kindness is much appreciated as family and friends navigate this heartbreaking moment. We kindly request if you can donate funds funeral service expenses & provide support to the family. The proceeds from this fund will go to Aakif's spouse and children who are the sole beneficiaries.

Many thanks for your support, may God rest Aakif's soul in peace and we all pray the almighty to ease the pain and suffering to his family & friends.
