This memorial website was created in memory of our Dear Father, Husband, Brother, Uncle, and Friend Hakan Bahçeci, 50 years old, born on December 12, 1969 and sadly passed away on May 26, 2020.

Hakan was a very special man who touched so many people with his acts of kindness and integrity. He also loved his country, Turkey and made many contributions to people, society and charities there. Now with Hakan's passing, many people would wish to pay their respects and condolences to Hakan's Wife, Father and the Family. In that regard and in what would be Hakan's wish, please do not send flowers to his family, but instead please do give generously to his charity of choice, Combat Deforestation, Turkey.
Hakan was put to his eternal rest in Elmalık village, Bolu, Turkey following funeral prayers on Sunday, 31st May 2020. May his departed soul rest in eternal peace...

I am usually good at using words. But few words could ever express the profound sadness and grief lingering in my heart upon hearing about the sudden and least expected demise of my lovely brother Hakan.

He was so generous and kind and so dependable that almost anybody could trust him. He was furthermore a true friend of the people of Iran during time of trouble and hardship by having provided them with substantial amount of food and feed staples at preferential terms .

The world without him seems depopulated. I will always cherish his lovely memories and look forward to seeing him in the after world in which both of us believed.

To his beloved wife, lovely daughter and sons, father, brothers, uncles, and other folks , I wish to convey our heartfelt condolences. We will never forget him at all. He continue to rest in peace and joy in our hearts for ever.

Sevgili abimiz;

Hayatta iz bırakanların izinden gitmek en önemli görevlerden biri olsa gerek.

Sen iz bırakan oldun! Yol açtın, o yoldan nice gidenler olacak.

Vakitsiz kaybın tarifsiz acılara ve büyük bir boşluğa sebep oldu. Biliyoruz ki yerin asla dolmaz; ismini ve ideallerini yaşatmak seni sevenlerin ilk önceliği olacaktır...

Çok iyi bir insandın, iyi insanlar erken gidermiş, bu kuralı bozmadın. Ama aklımızdan ve kalbimizden hiç gitmeyeceksin.

Başta ailen olmak üzere; seni seven herkesin, fikrinin ve iyiliğinin uzandığı tüm insanların başı sağ olsun.

O kadar dua ve sevgiyle anılıyorsun ki eminim mekânın cennettir.

İAL'li kardeşlerinden Serkan Deniz...

We are all in shock from this very sad news that Hakan is no longer with us.
Despite our companies were known to each other many years in this market, we have started to work together in the last 3 years.
With the work of Hakan s agent, we did a joint venture and worked together with full trust.
Hakan is a very big loss for everyone. we will miss his big heart and vision.

He was our big brother, mentor before being our boss.

I feel very lucky to spend quite long time close to him. I never thought he would leave us so early and I wish I would be spending more time with him when I had the opportunity.

Rest in Peace Hakan abi. You will be missed forever.

Hepimize once abi, akil hocasi, ondan sonra patron oldu.

Onu taniyip yaninda uzun bir zaman gecirebildigim icin kendimi cok sansli hissediyorum. Aramizdan bu kadar erken ayrilacagi hicbir zaman aklima gelmezdi. Keske firsatim oldugunda onunla daha fazla zaman gecirebilseydim.

Nurlar icinde yat abim. Seni hep ozleyecegiz.

Hearing of Hakan loss was the saddest since my father passing away 38 years ago, who incidentally was only 50 and died while asleep through a heart attack.
I only met this great man 12 years ago, but since then a strong bond was developed, and I’m honored to say we became close friends. I was also lucky to become close to all his beloved immediate family.
My sincere condolences to all his family and to everyone who loved and was touched by him
Rest in peace my buddy. You will always be in my heart

Dear Hayri, Hakan’s Family and all my friends in Halan Agro DMCC

We here at Flavor Full Food Inc were truly sorry to hear of the loss of Mr Hakan Bahçeci, the founder and CEO of Hakan Agro DMCC. Please allow me, on behalf of all of us at Flavor Full Food Inc, to extend my deepest sympathies to you and your company as you struggle through this period of shock and grief.

Hakan and I go back more than 20 years both as friends and business partners. We have developed a long, trust relationship for many years. Not only was he a great person to do business with, Hakan is also a tremendous person with remarkable qualities and he will be remembered among acquaintances & friends.

I could still remember the days when Hakan came to visit Taiwan to attend my son’s wedding, and few years ago to visit him at an Expo in Dubai. I didn’t expect that the next time that I hear from him is his pass way.

Once again, please accept my deepest condolences for Mr. Hakan Bahçeci. Please do not hesitate to contact me or anyone else at Flavor Full Food Inc should you think of anything we can do to help.

Sharing your sorrow.

The FAO is deeply saddened to learn about Hakan Bahceci's untimely passing. At the FAO he was a household name when it came to private sector involvement in the fight against hunger and poverty. From the Committee of Food Security's Private Sector Mechanism, which he Chaired in 2013, to his important role in the 2016 International Year of Pulses. The support of the Global Pulse Confederation was paramount to the huge success of that year. The FAO will miss him as a tireless and inspirational leader of private sector contribution towards a better world. I will also miss his kindness and his constant smile.

Both my wife and I are morning the loss of a special man and a good friend. We cherish all the memories we shared with him. He was a good person, with such positive visions about life. He was a dedicated father and husband. He had many qualities, but most of all, he emanated that genuine goodness that left an indelible mark and made him an unforgettable person. Rest in peace, Hakan, until we meet again.

Mr. Hakan a Gem of a person. A magnetic personality with his radiating, infectious smile. Words cannot describe his complete persona. He was a compassionate, kind and a people loving person. He liked hard working people. He was self disciplined and appreciated disciplined people. He empathized, equipped, encouraged, energized and edified people to push their boundaries and explore new territories to enlarge their domains and achieve milestones. He believed in people to rise above the normal and by hard work and knowledge as he himself was a hardworking and dedicated person. I personally remember once while working with him, when i sent an email requesting his answer in the middle of the night, he responded within 2 minutes. Working overtime was his routine. His sudden absence is an huge irreparable loss to the entire industry. His zeal and passion for work will continue to inspire his team, to carry on the fervour and keep progressing to achieve his vision. God bless Team Hakan.

I known Hakan for 20years, he was extremely supportive since the day I known him. Last i sat with Hakan was at his house invited by him for a lovely branch a little before the COVID. I saw his beautiful children and respected wife at that time. I will never ever forget the hospitality forwarded to me by him and his family, that was my last meal and a cup of coffee I had with him. Hakan was really a good person.

So long my Brother, Rest In Peace! You will always be remembered! You will always be praised for all your good deeds! I will never forget your kindness for my entire life! May your soul rest in peace!

Kısa bir arkadaşlık kalıcı bir anı

Shared by Hişam Güney on June 29, 2020
     Uzun yıllar önce ilk iş tecrübemi yaşadığım Dubai’de yaşarken orada ikamet eden Türkiyeli bir adamla tanışmıştım. Ben çalıştığım iş yeriyle bir problem yaşamış ve işten ayrılmıştım. Adam da orada başarılı, kendini ispatlamış bir iş adamıydı. Tanıştığımız ortamda muhabbetimiz çabuk ilerlemiş kısa sürede arkadaş olmuştuk. O yıllarda genç yaşına rağmenbana bir kalp rahatsızlığı yaşadığını ve stent takıldığını söylemişti.  Aramızdaki statü ve yaş farkına rağmen her buluşmamızda çok koyu sohbetlere dalıyor çok güzel vakit geçiriyorduk. Ben onun genç yaşta (32 yaşındaydı) böyle başarılı bir kariyer yapmasını gıptayla izliyordum. Kendime bakarak hemen ilk iş deneyiminde başarısız olduğum için daha fazla çalışmak için kendimi hırslandırıyordum. Arkadaşlığımız Dubai’de kaldığım 3 ay içerisinde devam etti. Ben hiç bir zaman ondan direkt bir şekilde beni şirketlerinden birinde çalıştırmasını istemedim ama ondan böyle bir teklif bekledim çünkü beni çok sevdiğini biliyordum. Ama etmedi. 3 ay sonunda Katar’dan bir iş teklifi aldım ve oraya taşındım. Giderken onu aradım yine kal demesini bekledim ama demedi. Çok kızmıştım insan neden böyle bir arkadaşı varken iş arar anlamamıştım. Katar’a gittim orada da sıkıntılar yaşadım ilk başlarda hatta alanım olmayan alakasız bir kaç işte çalıştım. En sonunda kendi alanımda güzel maaşlı bir işe başladım. Ve arkadaşımı aradım. Tebrik etti beni. Beni çok iyi tanıdığını ve imkanlarımın çok iyi olduğunu bildiğin halde neden bu kadar çile çekmeme izin verdin diye sitem ettim. Bana verdiği cevap şuydu: “Pes etmeni bekliyordum. Pes ettim artık ben yapamayacağım Türkiye’ye döneceğim dediğin anda ben sana bir pozisyon düşünüyordum ama bekledim bakalım ne yapacak diye. Sonunda başardın kendi mesleğinle ilgili kendi sevdiğin işi yapacaksın bu bence daha önemli dedi.” 
     Bilirsiniz araya mesafe girince arkadaşlıklar önce soğur sonra da tamamen kesilir. Bizim de öyle oldu. Önce sık sık telefonla görüşürdük sonra ara yavaş yavaş açıldı. Sonunda koptu. Uzun yıllar birbirimizden haber alamadık. Ben Türkiye’ye döndüm burada hayat kurdum. O ise orada kaldı başarılarına başarı kattı. Dünyanın bakliyat ticaretine yön veren şirketinin sahibi oldu. Büyüdükçe büyüdü bende kendi kariyerimde ilerledim... 
      Bugün çok alakasız bir arkadaşımla konuşurken Dubai’de faaliyet gösteren bir iş adamının vefatından bahsetti... Bakliyat sektöründe faaliyet gösteriyor dedi ismi Hakan... Arkadaşım vefat etmişti. Uzun yıllar acaba arasam mı diye aklımdan geçirip sonra çok meşguldür diye kendimi vazgeçirdiğim için çok üzüldüm. Allah rahmet eylesin sevgili arkadaşım. Mekanın cennet olsun #hakan_bahçeci
