It is with heavy hearts and tears that we send out this sad news that our dear friend Ato Taye Reta has passed away today, January 26, 2016. Ato Taye has been a faithful member of Ethiopian Community in Minnesota for many years and served as a Board of Director.
He was instrumental in encouraging all members of the community to be proud of being an Ethiopian and to always be an outstanding citizen. He brought wisdom to others by sharing his immense knowledge on Ethiopia and world history to those who wanted to learn and expand their horizons.
His passing is a deep and sad loss to the community and will be felt across all generations. His encouragement to do the right thing and be a positive person will be missed and his legacy will be to encourage others to be good citizens.
We pass our deepest condolences to his family on behalf of ECM Board and its members. As information becomes available on funeral arrangements we will continue to send out communication to our members.
