Obituary for Fethawi Nigussie Gebrestadic

Fethawi Nigussie Gebrestadic was born in the country of Eritrea, located within East Africa on the 16th of January in the year of 2000.  Fethawi was survived by his mother, Brikti Berhe, and siblings, Weiyni, Yonas, Yobel, Helen, and Rahel, and was preceded in death by his grandmother, Abrehet Hadera. 

Fethawi attended high school in Worthington, Minnesota and graduated amongst the class of 2019.  He then went on to further his education at Minnesota West Community and Technical College in Jackson, Minnesota to study and practice the skill of welding.  Fethawi was known by his community, including his family and friends, as being loving and kind.  He always had a smile on his face—followed by his laughter.  His smile and laugh was contagious—never failing to help another up when they were down. 

Fethawi brought a sense of peace to the environment around him, for he always disliked negativity and conflict.  Fethawi was the life of the party and made sure all around him were joyful as well.  He was inclusive of everyone and never left anyone out. He was a selfless individual, regardless of the situation and he saw humor in any place he could. He was a true optimist and saw the best in everything and everyone. He has inspired numerous individuals to enjoy life

Fethawi enjoyed playing basketball and creating music with his friends, who he spent much time with, both inside and outside of school.  He invited his friends to be his family and loved and cared for them just as they were—no judgement, only understanding. 

Fethawi always had an ear to listen, however, if another did not want to speak, he could get your mind off of anything with his uplifting and comical words.  Unfortunately, we all lost Fethawi’s presence on Earth as he passed within the experience of a fatal vehicle accident within the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota on the 17th of February of the year 2021.  Even though we no longer have his presence with us on Earth, we must know he is watching over us from up above and is an angel of protection to us all.

Fethawi will continue to send us thoughts of positivity, along with smiles and laughter, for he is forever with us—held within our hearts.  Let us hold Fethawi within our hearts until we are able to hold him once again in Heaven.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., at St., Mary’s Catholic Church in Worthington, MN. Burial will be in the Worthington Cemetery.
