Kamran Shadan

A loving husband, father, brother, nephew, cousin, friend, and lover of life, died on August 10, 2023.

Kamran was born in Tehran, Iran, on July 31, 1958, to Mahin and Allahverdi Shadan, who preceded him in death. He brought joy and laughter to all who knew him.

After attending boarding school in England, he immigrated to the U.S. and became an active and enthusiastic citizen.

Kamran spent many successful years as a financial advisor before retiring. He was a FIFA-certified soccer referee and avid soccer fan who loved spending time with his family, on his sailboat and with his French Bulldog. He was never happier than when at home surrounded by family.

Kamran is survived by his wife, Carolyn, and two daughters, Sonya and Ariana, as well as a large extended family. A memorial celebration of his life is being planned. Contact his family for details. In lieu of flowers, Kamran would say spend time with your family, hug your children and tell them you love them unconditionally, see your friends more often, and contact any estranged relatives.
