Mr. Peykar, was born in Kashan, Iran on October 20, 1920, and is survived by his sons Paul, Edmond, Alex, and Steven Peykar, his daughter Maggi Hakimi and their spouses, 11 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. His first wife Joanna died in 1959. His second wife, Esmat recently passed in August of last year.

Noury Peykar founded Nourison with his four sons in 1980. The name Nourison was a combination of “Noury” and “sons” and a tribute to their father and his legacy. They founded Nourison with little means, but were fortunate enough to build a successful company that has become a leader in their industry and has continued to grow over the past 35 years.

Noury Peykar still came to the Saddle Brook office on most days. He was a kind person and greeted everyone with a warm smile and a friendly wave. It is with much sadness that the Nourison family makes this announcement. Mr. Peykar will be missed.
