Adnan was a professor of Middle Eastern and European History at SUNY Plattsburgh for 34 years until his retirement in 1998. Prior to joining the faculty of SUNY Plattsburgh, Adnan was the Director of
American -Jordanian Cultural Relations in Jordan. He earned his BA from London University and his PhD from New York University. Adnan is survived by Samira, his wife of 57 years, and his three children, Sam (Irene) Ghazaleh of Winchester, MA, Reem (Jim) Groark of Grayslake, IL and Mona (Chet) Rublewski of Tolland, CT. He also leaves behind 8 grandchildren: Connor and Xavier Ghazaleh, Sean, Anissah and Jenna Groark, and Hayden, Gavin and Cullen Rublewski.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Brookdale Assisted Living of South Windsor, CT for taking such good care of him over the past two years.

Dear Reem,
I just happened to see in the paper that your dear father passed away. I am so sorry. It is very hard to lose a father. Mine passed away thirty years ago and I still miss him. It does get easier in time to remember with smiles instead of tears. I remember always feeling so welcomed by your lovely parents. I know that it must be especially hard considering all that is happening in our world right now. I hope that you, your mom, and the rest of your family are able to be together soon. Please know that Dick and I are thinking of you and remembering your dad with fondness at this difficult time.
