OBITUARY
Eruch embodied the best of humanity. He was charming, brilliant, and compassionate and sincerely cared about every person he encountered. He showed us that true strength was born out of love and kindness, that true security came from opening your heart up to world. Even as an older man, he never succumbed to the fear that seems to come with age, that wants to hate the 'other', to keep things like they were in the 'good old days'. He...  see more

    Eric, there was no way for us to celebrate Christmas or even have a simple get together without missing your presence and remembering you. I miss you and wish you were still with us. I look at our pictures together with our children and family, and I am...  more

    I got to really know my dad and bond with him after he had his stroke. Dad was always loving of course, but he was old school when I was very young and he was more like a principal whose main job was to educate and train me. Unlike the way most fathers...  more

    Ammo Eruch was always kind, sincere and tolerant. Omar and I we’re always being little rascals coming into the apartment at odd hours and he was MORE than tolerant with Omar and I. I remember how warm our encounters were. He is a gentlemen at the core.

    Eric was my brother-in-law. He will be terribly missed! He touched my life and the life of others in such a positive way. I have many nice memories of Eric, but my fondest memory of him was when my brother Nabil and I lived with him in Bombay, India. It...  more

    So many memories. Snippets here and there, so I'll post as I remember them more clearly.

    My dad was quite tough on me as a child.

    It seems like fathers are the most strict with their first-born (I see that even with me with Layla as compared to Noah...  more

    I don't have one memory or one story that encapsulates my uncle, but rather a series of feelings on how I'll remember him that I'll try to put into words. Uncle Eruch was:

    Eruch was a perfect gentleman. Always polite, loving and full of humor! He was a good friend to me. He was also a caring father in law to my daughter Amee, and grandpa to her son Adi.

    Whenever Omar and I would come back from a vacation or a work trip overseas, we'd call or visit Eruch and tell him about it. Invariably he would have stories of his own... usually he'd reveal he'd been to that destination himself! He would tell these...  more
