HORWITZ--Myron, "Mike" died peacefully like a gentleman. He was almost 95. Born and bred in Manhattan, Mike was a man of few words, and most of those were puns. He graduated from Townsend Harris, City College, New York University, and the University of Pennsylvania Dental School. Mike served in the South Pacific during World War II as a Captain in the United States Air Force Dental Corp and married Esther Botwin the day he returned - Valentines Day 1946. He practiced as a dentist until 1989, then travelled the world with his wife for the next 20 years. Mike is survived by Esther, his wife of 67 years, their children, Leslie Rahl, Richard Horwitz, Andy Rahl and Barbara Freund; grandchildren, Kaitlin, Nick, Stephen, Jesse, Kevin, and Gillian, and great-grandchildren, Jamie and Lila. He was a family man, surrounded by family until the end. Services: Thursday, 11am at Sharon Gardens Cemetery, Valhalla, NY. A Celebration of Life will take place at CMRA, 777 Third Avenue at 1pm.
