Mr Philip Zenni (Fahim Leeni) was born in Syria on 25 October 1886 [1].

He boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger [2] with ticket number 2620 (£7 4s 6d).

He was rescued, possibly in lifeboat 6.

After surviving the sinking of Titanic, he continued on to his destination of Dayton, Ohio where he lived out his life. He was first employed as a machinist as Platt Iron Works in Dayton but later worked in the confectionery business. He was married to Elsie and had four children (1 son and 3 daughters) [3]

Mr Zenni died of pneumonia on 2 December 1927.


1. The death certificate gives the date as 1889

2. He appears on some passenger lists as Fahim Leeni.

3. Another source says three children. Two are thought to be still living. Curiously, only siblings were listed as survivors in the three contemporary newspaper articles mentioning his death.
