My great-uncle Devi was so kind, with such a big heart, as much as I’m sure he loved when we would visit him in Montreal, I loved watching him interact with my mom, my siblings, our partners, and my cousin’s twins. The way he would light up brighter than the sun talking to and entertaining us was infectious. When Ellie and I went on our heritage/engagement trip in 2018, he gave me food recommendations for Romania, and I ate Mamaliga- the dish he said he missed the most (goat cheese and polenta) on his recommendation. We went to Focșani, where he and my Zeidy were born, and walked around the area where they grew up. We tried to visit his father, Ilea, in the Jewish cemetery in Bucharest, but we couldn't find his grave. The cemetery administrator looked at his map and took us to the wrong Ilea Marcus, and we didn't discover that until after we'd left. Devi later told my mother his father's grave was right by the administrative office! We were so close to it the whole time! I will go back and when I find the correct grave, I will put a stone on his headstone for me, and a stone for Devi. I miss Devi very much, and I’m grateful he had the chance to meet Bayla when she was 3 months old, and I'm grateful that we have a photo of them I can show her and explain to her when she’s older. Even if it's only one photo, it's more than many people get. Rest in Peace, Devi. Know that you are loved and you are missed and you will not be forgotten!

Michaela and family.. I was a volunteer at the Drop In Center for Holocaust Survivors at the Cummings Center and was lucky to meet your father. He was very humble, always smiling and welcomed me into the group. Each week he would tell me about his family and his beloved dog. He insisted I sit beside him which was my honour. I will miss him. May the memory of your beloved father sustain you at this sad time and may you be spared further sorrow.

Dear Family, I used to drive Devi to and from the Cummings Centre last year. He was such a kind man, always saying thank you Dear to me and once I brought my mom's dog in the car and he sat on Devi's lap which made him so happy. My condolences to all of you and I'm sorry I did not keep in touch with him after he stopped going to the Cummings.

Michaela and Morty, We are so incredibly sorry for your loss. Visits to Montreal will not be the same without Devi. It was always so nice to see and talk to him. He was such a caring person. I am especially grateful that I was able to introduce him to John and Rowan. Our love and thoughts are with you both. May you find comfort and peace as soon as you are able.

Oliver Ghingold - 1 day ago

I'm going to miss Devi very much. He took an active interest in every development in my life, most amusingly when he demanded pictures of my dog. It's going to feel so strange going back to Montreal knowing I can't see him anymore. I will always remember the deepness and earnestness of his love for me and my siblings. I'm so sorry for your loss, Michaela. You had a truly wonderful dad.

Sincere condoleante familiei si pri etenilor lui Devi! Devi a fost unul dintre cei mai deosebiti oameni pe care i-am intalnit. Un om cald, sincer, atent la sentimentele celor din jur, empatic, un om minunat care si-a iubit nespus familia. A fost o onoare sa il cunoastem si o nespusa bucurie de cate ori am reusit sa vorbim cu el! Ne va fi dor de el si ne vom aminti cu mult drag. Sa se odihneasca, in pace, langa ingeri!
