UNGAR--William, 100+, Holocaust survivor, Zionist, philanthropist, entrepreneur, businessman, author and tzaddik, passed on September 19, 2013, the beloved husband of the late Jerry Ungar, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather to four daughters, three sons-in-law, 17 grandchildren, spouses and one great-grandson. Out of the ruins of the Holocaust, with a triumphant, optimistic spirit and the courage to persevere, he rebuilt a beautiful life filled with family, community, good deeds and Ahavat Yisrael. He was the founder of National Envelope Corporation as well as a founder of the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York, Yad LaYeled Holocaust Museum and Ungar School of Holocaust Studies in Israel. He received numerous awards in the worlds of business and philanthropy including the 1996 National Entrepreneur of the Year, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and an Honorary Doctorate from Queens College. With countless good deeds, his spirit and life will forever inspire the many lives he touched. May his memory be for a blessing.
