Su'ādah Ḥannā Nasr-Rizq

Mr Su'ādah Ḥannā Naṣr-Rizq (Saad Hanna (Jean) Nasr Rizq) was born in Sar'al, Lebanon around 1892.

Little is known about the man but Elias (2011) relates that he had a reputation in his village as a troublemaker, soon raising the ire of others in his area to the point that he had to flee Lebanon. He boarded Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 2676 which had cost £7, 4s, 6d) and it seems he was travelling with others from his locale.

Mr Naṣr-Rizq was lost in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified. His parents later benefitted from the Titanic relief fund.
