Dear Zaki family,
I got to know Sherif at LA Fitness Toco Hills. He became a regular in my Tuesday and Thursday morning classes.
I just found out about his passing this morning through his former co-worker, Neerja Ketkar. Needless to say, we are heartbroken to learn this devastating news.
His soft spoken nature and his sense of humor was always a joy to have in class. And to hear his stories about his work, was mind blowing. He never really let on what an ICON and HERO he was in the medical field.
I will miss his presence being in class and the fun conversations we had afterwards.
Sending love and light to you all.

We are deeply saddened by the untimely death of our colleague and friend Dr. Sherif Zaki. He was one of the most knowledgeable infectious diseases pathologists that ever existed and assisted on numerous identifications of unusual organisms from our institution. Not only a brilliant diagnostician, he was supremely supportive of his colleagues and co-workers, a truly kind and benevolent individual. We will sorely miss him, but are gratified to have had the pleasure to know and work with him.
