The man everyone knew as "Saggy" was remembered as a self-made man who came to this country from his native Pakistan in 1972 and became a citizen six years later.
Active in Republican politics, he served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 2000 to 2010, one of the first American Muslims elected in the United States.
