my deepest sympathy

Andrea Lake Rubin - 10 days ago

My sincere  condolences to all those whose hearts are feeling the sad loss of dear Yanky.  I know there must be many. But to you, Marion, Sarah, Jonathan, Carol , Rickey and family, I wanted you to know that I am forever grateful to Yankee for having been a part of my life. I am where I am today in large part because  Yanky helped guide me here. As a little girl Yany was part of our familyscape. I loved his passionate energy, his intelligence and was inspired by his photograghy. In fact, although I was never accepted into tbe media program that he created, I did work in video production and continue to express myself through photography to this day.   As a young woman, struggling to find my way on the sometimes difficult path of life, Yanky and Marion were consistantly there;  Yankee guided me, encouraged me and kept an eye on my progress until he saw I was settled and in the capable care of my husband. Growing up, I always felt welcome and knew I could find safe refuge at Yankee and Marion's home. By witnessing the devotion they had for each other and for their adored Sarah, I learned what to aim for in life. I loved them and trusted every word of advice Yankee sent my way. I just wasn't always brave enough to aim as big as I think he would have liked me to. But, I did study at Laval in Quebec City after Yankee suggested it would be a more affordable way to get an education. With his words in mind I was inspired to do a two year program in one year. Yankee was great at connecting people together who could help each other. When I was getting my degree at UBC he helped make my student life bearable by finding me house sitting jobs.  When I moved to Montreal Yankee made efforts to help me feel like I had a family to reach out to if I needed  one. His family. Thank you Jonathan for helping me feel at home in Montreal, I'm sorry I didn't accept your mother's invites! I was just too shy at the time...Again, when I moved to Hudson, Yankee introduced me to his dear friend Scott Gardner who proved to be as diligent a Guardian Angel as himself. In fact, the last time I talked to Yankee several years ago, it was to tell him our dear friend had passed on. I'm sure Scott was one of many, welcoming Yankee to the other side. I hope Yankee was aware of my love and gratitude towards him. Lesson learned: Tell people you love them and are grateful to have them in your life before it is too late. Time is a trickster. I will miss your, bigger than life, self Yankee. But, know that, as always, I carry you in my heart and in my mind and that your efforts will not be wasted on me. In your honour I will do my best to aim big, keep curious, live life to it's fullest, be happy, and care! And I will do my best to 'pay it forward'. Love and gratitude to all. Sincerely, Andrea Lake Rubin My sincere  condolences to all those whose hearts are feeling the sad loss of dear Yanky.  I know there must be many.

Norty & Marilyn Birman - 15 days ago

Dear Carol, Rickey and family, Marilyn and I are so saddened to hear of Yanky’s passing. Growing up, Yanky spent many hours watching television with the Birman family and became a fixture at 350 Willowdale. Yanky, Mark, Jackie (Danny) Marty and I had a long-standing friendship – jovial and special relationship. The last time we saw Yanky was in 2015 when we had the good fortune of having Yanky visit with us in Delray Beach. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Our deepest condolences to you and may you have no further sorrow. Norty

Phil Westelman - 19 days ago

Dear Rickey & the Blitstein families, Although I never really knew Yanky he was a close & dear friend of my late brother Jack (Danny Wells). It is so sad that we are losing a generation of guys who, in their own way, ‘made it’ but never lost their great humour, their compassion & love of family but stayed in touch with each other regardless of the physical distance between them. We will miss their love, their touch, their smiles & most of all their laughter. Cherish your memories & you will never lose him. My deepest sympathies.

Brad Fisher - 19 days ago

On Monday I lost a dear friend of mine Gerald (Yanky) Blitzstein. Before I knew him in person I knew him by tales and legends my father told me of knowing him in Montreal as little boys, back in the 1930's and 40's. The tales of the rivalry between the french kids and jewish kids in their neighborhood. What it was like during the 2nd world war in Montreal, the hardships and the close knit community. All my life he was my champion; actually,he was so many peoples champion. When I was a young boy I always likened him to Tevye from Fiddler On The Roof. As a young boy I went on a camping road trip with my father brother and Yanky. On this trip Yanky introduced me to cucumber creamcheese sandwiches which I still eat to this day and think about him when I do. He was the kind of man that made you feel like family. Yanky would give you the shirt off his back. Big and burly, hairy right to his knuckles with the kindest heart, a shoulder to lean on and an ear always ready to listen. Yanky is my father's oldest friend they had known each other since before they were 5 back in Montreal and pretty much remained life long friends. Yanky was pure Montreal Jew! He could talk louder than you and he was no push over in an argument. Yanky never made it personal when it came to heated conversations. He was very much a facts based man with a lot of heart and passion! As a family man Yanky was my mentor my roll model. His love for his wife Marion, his daughter Sarah and his 2 grandchildren Emma and Kate were the centre of his life. The Blitzstein home was a sanctuary a bastion of sanity for countless people. No matter where you were in life at your worst or at your best flying high Yanky was your champion! Yanky was cool, he photographed John and Yoko in Bed in 69 in Montreal, he was head of the Nikon schools in Canada, he had been a stock broker and photographer, he learned how to be an auctionere, he worked for the red cross, he started the multi-media program at Capilano College, he was into horses, gardening in a huge way, walking long distances, and more than anything helping inspire people to pick themselves up and out of the ditch at the roadside of life. Yanky had an innate ability to help you rekindle your relationship with yourself. Nothing seemed to scare him regarding a persons station in life. He had a passion for nature and conservation and was definitely worried at the direction of the world, it's people and was very much a believer in the whole human race as one race! I'm going to miss my friend, my father's oldest and dearest friend that loved me told me he loved me, cared about me, called me, attended my graduation from BCIT, my wedding, my childs Brit Mila, my son's bar mitzvah, my daughter's bat mitzvah, my going away party when i attended Humber College.Music Program. Yanky's energy for his tribe was endless, larger than life, happy, joyful, interested, supportive, loving, kind, compassionate, brave, funny, a man's man! I'm going to miss my friend with all my heart (as Shira would say).
