After Hüseyin Yıldızbaş
- The orphan grew up and lived 87 years.
- He was a humble and pioneering business person.
- " He was the ones who marked Karaman's firsts".
- I was the last witness that she smiled saying "I owe nobody a penny" and was saddened by saying "I have no friends left".
- He received the following prayer from his mother, who died at the age of 90, every day: "May God not lose your money and fame from his bosom."
- He had nine children, five girls and four boys.
First I would like to offer my mercy wishes. Thanks to Karaman's head. Hüseyin Yıldızbaş left the world where he grew up an orphan and lived 87 years. May God have mercy.
I visited Hüseyin Yıldızbaş in February, when I came to Karaman before the corona. Karaman host Ahmet Çelik suggested that I meet with Hüseyin Yıldızbaş. I only knew the late Latif Yıldızbaş from the family. He was my age and passed away at a young age.
Of course I knew Hüseyin Yıldızbaş. Maybe fifty years ago. But in the 1980s, when he came to Ankaramander's first meeting in a wedding hall in Bahçelievler, Ankara, we saw it and never met again.
Among the group that came from Karaman was Hüseyin Yıldızbaş as the President of the Chamber of Agriculture.
One afternoon we went to the third or fourth floor of a business inn with Ahmet Çelik. A walking stick in his hand greeted us at the entrance. He has reserved a room for himself and uses it as an office. A table, a few chairs and dozens of pictures on the walls, dozens of plaques.
Her waist is slightly bent and traces of her age are reflected on her face. But it was Hüseyin Yıldızbaş, whom I knew in the 1970s with his humble attitude and institutional state. It hadn't changed at all.
Hüseyin Yıldızbaş was our neighbor from Seki Çeşme District. Yıldızbaş family was crowded according to us and the residents of the neighborhood. A pickup-like vehicle would stop in front of the house. Their workplace was close to their homes. I think it was next to the restaurant famous for its dried beans.
We chatted for over two hours. He was going back to those days while telling his memories. Sometimes he was in a sad mood, sometimes in a happy mood. It was like he got on the seesaw, from yesterday to this day, from happiness to pain.
Clear memory. He is alive in his childhood, youth and middle age. He remembers every event like it was yesterday.
As he told about it ...
