It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our great patriarch on the 17th of November, 2012 at the age of 81. After a truly valiant fight fueled by his immense inner strength and his eternal hunger for all that life encompasses, he lost his final battle. A holocaust survivor who came to Montreal as an orphaned teenager, evolved into a remarkable self-made man who amassed immense success in the business world, yet his greatest achievement was embracing his family with unconditional love and guidance. Loving, devoted and adored husband of Leonie (nee Sybertz) for 58 years, a love that few are blessed enough to share. Proud father of Nancy, Perry (Anna) and Robert (Cezarina). Cherished grandfather of Richard, Jason, Olivia, Benjamin and David. Predeceased by his parents Helen and Samuel, his brothers Berka and Yidel and sister Esther. This kind and gentle man shall be greatly missed by all who knew him. A special thanks to Dr. Rudy Brenner for his professional and heartfelt care. A private funeral service was held at the request of the deceased.
