It is with a heavy heart that Sigma Alpha Mu reports that undergraduate frater Michael El-Far (Sigma Delta, ‘19) of Sigma Alpha Mu at Rutgers University, has entered Chapter Eternal. May his memory be a blessing.
Sigma Delta Chapter at Rutgers shared, "We are devastated and deeply saddened to share the passing of our brother Michael El-Far. Mike represented everything that our fraternity stood for and more. He was passionate, warm-hearted, and always looked to help those in need. In addition to his exceptional service as brotherhood chair and leadership during his time as our chapter recorder, Mike decided to dedicate an entire summer towards mentoring and assisting impoverished orphans in Egypt. We at Sigma Alpha Mu will continue to cherish the memories we made with Mike over the past few years and celebrate the life of a young man gone too soon. Rest In Peace Mike."
