Magdy Kotb

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Magdy Kotb, 75, of Nassau Bay, Texas. Magdy lived a long, beautiful life, but alas his loving heart beat for the last time on March 22, 2021 after living with heart disease for many years.

Magdy emigrated from his beloved Egypt in 1980 with his wife, Sonia and two daughters, Yasmine and Miral. Magdy lived every day fully and with genuine joy. He loved to laugh, dance, travel, chase sunsets, and watch soccer with Sonia. His energetic personality helped foster a community for 21 years at Mediterraneo Market & Café, the successful restaurant that he and Sonia own and operate. His generosity and focus on community extended to his decades-long volunteer work with Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer, Egyptian American Society, Egyptian Festival, Egyptian Folkloric Dance Societies and The South Texas Soccer Referees Association.

Magdy is survived by his wife, Sonia Kotb, and their children, Yasmine Kotb and Miral Kotb.
