Obituary of Mohammad “Mo” Rezai

Mohammad “Mo” Rezai, 87, of Slidell, Louisiana, passed away peacefully on May 20, 2022. 

Mo, the youngest of four children, was born in Iran to Mohammad and Maryam Rezai on March 29, 1935. He immigrated to the United States to attend the University of Utah, where he earned a Master’s of Science in Chemical Engineering. He worked for Shell Chemical for 26 years, retiring in 1991. 

Mo married Marjorie Ann Barton in 1965 and together they had one son, Cameron Anthony Rezai. Mo’s career with Shell brought the family from Long Beach, California, to Denver, Colorado, and finally to Slidell, Louisiana, where Mo lived for 40 years. He enjoyed many hobbies and kept very busy long after retiring.  Mo especially enjoyed time and talks with his loving son and grandsons. 

Mo is survived by his former wife, Margie, whose friendship he enjoyed until the end; his son, Cameron Anthony Rezai and his daughter-in-law, Karen; his grandson, C. Parker Rezai and his wife, Carolyn; and his grandson, Andrew Rezai. Mo was preceded in death by his parents and siblings.
