A loving, gentle, selfless and simple man, who loved his family unconditionally, worked extra jobs without a complaint; 13 years he devoted to caring for his "Chava" our mother who battled Alzheimer; patience his greatest characteristics; honored his vows, a dry sense of humor, his hobby genealogy.
