Even after a year, I am still at a loss as to how we got into this awful situation.
Navid, your family and friends have so many beautiful memories of you - what a life you lived!
I'll always remember Navid as this picture depicts.
It was a short, but sweet time: we were all feeling pretty awesome in our bouji get up, but then failing terribly to emulate this for the camera.
Navid obviously found our ineptitude hilarious, and broke out into his classically deep, contagious belly laughter, sending us all off into fits of giggles.
What a wonderfully joyful and happy guy you were Navid, and how selflessly you shared this euphoria with us all.
Rest in peace fella.
Simin & Nezam, whether it's 1 year or 10 years, we're all here to support you and Navid's memory xoxo
It shakes me to think that Navid is not with us. He was full of life. He was so full of life. I cannot overstate this. I can still hear his voice- from chatting with him, overhearing him working on a problem set, or watching him in Skule Nite. I will never forget his intelligence, enthusiasm, or kindness.
It is difficult to find words in the face of such a tragedy. Navid was one of the most brilliant individuals I have ever met, and it is hard to imagine the world without him. I was lucky enough to share the stage with him during the many years he was in Skule Nite, as well as had the pleasure of directing him during Skule Nite 1T3. Beyond the immense talent and stage presence Navid had, he was an endless source of positivity and energy and helped those around him shine. He was not only someone who could play any role and sing any solo, but he was also able to bring the cast and crew closer together to create a truly memorable experience for everyone.
I was also able to see his passion for science and technology as a fellow Engineering Science student. It still amazes me how someone could be so great at so many different things. It is as if becoming an engineer was not enough for him, he also had to bring a smile to everyone’s faces – and of course, he did just that.
There was no doubt he would make the amazing show that was Skule Nite 1T4, and create his own legacy both in the Skule Nite and University of Toronto communities.
I could not be more thankful to have gotten to know him and for him to be apart of my life. I will always keep memories of him close to my heart as well as continue to share his stories.
سیمین خانم و اقا نظام عزیز
غم از دست دادن عزیزان سخت است, و وقتی عزیزی ستاره درخشان زندگی ات است, این غم هزاران برابر سنگین تر میشود, ممنونم که خاطرات خوشی از زندگی نوید عزیز را با ما به اشتراک گذاشتید نوید جان با عمر کمش زندگی پرباری داشت, از ان به معنای واقعی لذت برد و لذت بردن از زندگی را هدف خودش قرار داد, امیدوارم ان گونه که او زندکی کرد برای شما ارامشی باشد در این روزهای سخت,

Dear Simin and Nezam
Your son, Navid was a charming, wonderful and a great person. We are still shocked and saddened to hear of your loss of beloved Navid. He was always the star and role model of Iranian community youth. We will never forget his great smile.
Our prayers are with you during this difficult times. May your memories of Navid and the love of your family surround you and give you strength and peace in the days ahead.
Navid was the son everyone wished to have. He lived life to the fullest and was very lucky to have parents who nurtured his innate talents to the utmost.
My deepest sympathies to both of you .
I met Navid years ago as a classmate in both junior high and high school. I was saddened to hear about his passing. He was a very intelligent and creative individual, and a part of some of my most treasurered memories from school. He will be missed.
