May 9, 1947-Aug. 20, 2014
Robert Mark Nissim was born on May 9, 1947 to Albert and Dorothy Nissim, their first son. His high intelligence was innate, and his curiosity and thirst for increased knowledge on all subjects never waned throughout his life. After college, when his parents were in the process of building The Musical Heritage Society (the largest classical music club in North America), Robert's extensive knowledge of classical music served the company well. He was responsible for selecting all of the music advertised in their catalogs. His contribution to the growth of the family business was invaluable. His sense of humor was an acquired taste. He had an acerbic wit, but it masked a huge, kind heart. There was no room in his world for meanness or malice. He could recognize distress in others and would assuage it, if at all possible. If Robert befriended you, it was for life. His passions included books, cars and animals. His canine and feline companions were the recipients of much affection.
He disliked cold weather with equal passion, and moved to Florida to escape the snow and ice of New Jersey. There was always a smile in his voice when New Jersey was manning snow plows and shovels. His last years were spent enjoying his retirement in the sun.
Robert was predeceased by his father, Albert Nissim. He is survived by his mother, Dorothy S. Nissim of Brielle, NJ; his loving wife, Carolyn B. Nissim of Parkland, FL; his beloved daughter, Jennifer Alyson Nissim of Oakhurst, NJ; his brothers, Donald (Deborah) Nissim of Interlaken, NJ, and Jeffrey (Anne) Nissim of Brielle, NJ.
Funeral service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 25, 2014 at Bloomfield-Cooper Jewish Chapels, 2130 Highway 35, Ocean, NJ. Family and friends are invited to the home of Donald and Deborah Nissim, 210 Windermere Ave., Interlaken, NJ 07712 immediately after the service for Brunch/Shiva.
Memorial donations in Robert's name to Wag On Inn Rescue, P.O. Box 221, Oakhurst, NJ 07755, will be appreciated.
