Bobby Marcus and Barbara Nathan Marcus - 10 days ago

Very Dear Barbara, Robin and Michael: Avrum was a devoted friend. It was obvious that he cared , we were nourished by his attention and genuine concern. . (It is hard to say “was.”) His legacy of integrity, thoughtfulness, and social justice set an example to all who knew him and we shall carry this with us. He will be missed. Who will I give the rest of the food on my plate to?

My dear Barbara, I was very sorry to hear of the passing of your dear Avrum. May his memory be a blessing and comfort to you. I have a very clear memory of doing my "stage" at his office in the Dominion Square Building.

Dear Barbara & family, I worked at the CRTC with Avrum for many years... I have often thought about him since he retired many years ago.... My thoughts go out to you.

Johanna Warshaw - 17 days ago

Dear Barbara, Robin, Michael and families. I know my dad spoke of how Avrum was like the brother he never had, and that makes sense, since I feel he was really like an uncle to me. Always a loving presence in my life, for longer than I can remember, and always someone who I know cared about me, and then my family. Such happy and comforting memories of many days and years up north, sitting around your table, or ours, or at the lake, and lately visits in Florida. I will miss him. My heart is with you all.

Charna Foxman - 17 days ago

Dear Barbara - It was with great sadness that I read of Avrum’s death. Bumy (is there anyone who still called him Bumy?) was a big part of my childhood and I still remember him at my 9th birthday party - I think he was the only boy there and even then handled that with gentlemanly grace. Truly he was special. My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Long life to you all. Warmly, Charna

Sidney Margles - 17 days ago

Dear Barbara and family. My sincere condolences on Avrum’s passing. While we crossed paths in May occasions in Ottawa, I as a broadcaster and he as a regulator, my fondest memory is from the Laurentians when he handed me two infant twin boys to hold in my arms. May the Lord comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may you know no further sorrow.
