Roger A. Frangieh
June 3, 1943  -  September 11, 2017


Roger Frangieh of Maumelle was born in Jerusalem on June 3, 1943 to Antoine and Labibeh Meo Franjié. At the age of twelve, he lost his mother. His older sisters, Mary, Odette, Sylvie and Sonia assisted his father Antoine in raising the young boy and baby of the family. Roger was very close to his sisters throughout all of their lives and he is survived by both Sylvie and Sonia. While Roger immigrated to the United States, Sylvie (Safieh) now lives in Jerusalem and Sonia (Gauthey) in Switzerland. He became an American citizen on May 19, 1980.

Roger was working in Bahrain in 1982 when he met his future wife, Samia, at a family wedding in Jerusalem. Following a year’s courtship, the couple married in Cyprus in 1983 and came back to the United States. Samia became a citizen on August 9, 1991. Together they moved throughout the world during Roger’s long and cherished career running five-star hotels and restaurants in various cities both in the United States and overseas.

After several moves throughout the United States, Roger and Samia settled in Maumelle where he began his own business as an advertiser, publisher and photographer. The publication MauMag was a natural offshoot of his main interests. The magazine just celebrated its tenth anniversary, having touched virtually every household in the city.

Roger’s health began deteriorating and in March, a heart irregularity caused a fall resulting in a brain bleed. Complications kept Roger in hospital care from March 23 until his death on September 11. He is survived by his two sisters, his wife, and innumerable cousins, nieces and nephews…as well as many, many friends.
