Samar Zavalkoff and Mitch Shein - 11 days ago

Dear Lisa and Family, We were so shocked to have learned of the news of your dad after our beautiful day together at Mt Tremblant. How can life work this way? We have no words to lessen this tragedy for all of you. It is clear from reading the endless messages on Papermans what a truly exceptional person your dad was. Our hearts are heavy for your loss. Samara and Mitch

And our friends are all aboard Many more of them live next door And the band begins to play… Every one of us Has all we need Sky of blue And sea of green In our yellow submarine – The Beatles, May 1966 Written as a children’s song, Yellow Submarine rocketed to No. 1 on the charts in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada after its release in the spring of 1966. The lyrics of innocence and brotherhood seemed especially appropriate to the gaggle of children growing up at that time on Clinton Avenue in the middle-class area of Cote des Neiges in Montreal. It was a tumultuous period in the world with the Vietnam War displayed in its full savagery in daily news headlines, 2½ years after the assassination of President John Kennedy, and two years before the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy would, once again, rupture the innocence of our young lives. But on Clinton Avenue, May 1966 was just the beginning of what would morph into another idyllic summer heralded by the sweet piano notes of classical music played by 19-year-old Sam Israelovitch, whose beautiful musicality would be shared with neighbors beginning every spring after winter had released its icy grip, enticing the Israelovitch family to cast wide open the French windows in their living room. One of Sam’s favorites was Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, which the great composer had dedicated to a piano student with whom he was smitten and which critics have described as a panache of emotions ranging from sorrowful to happy to defiant – all within 16 minutes. In my mind and in hindsight, those feelings would seem to symbolize the emotional journey of the Israelovitch family whose father, Izak, and mother, Mania, were Holocaust survivors who had settled in Montreal to start a family after the Second World War. I was lucky to live directly across from the Israelovitch duplex, located at 1910 Clinton Avenue, with my bedroom and balcony screen door facing the front windows of their house, separated only by the verdant leaves of mature maple trees on both sides of the street. Carefree summers spent with Sam, his younger sister, Susie, and the many other children growing up on Clinton Avenue was a highlight of my teenage years. There were enough children on “our” street in the mid-60s to organize robust games of hide-and-seek in the summer twilight hours: Sid Tafler; Ruthie Bryl; Uri, Edit and Sara Ravel; Bonnie and Cheryl Frank; Freda Haberman and her younger brother Joey; Mendy Adler; Neil Trevick and his sister; Harry, Paul and Molly Hilsenrath; Solly and Johnny Israel, Donna and Stan Kirsh; Teddy Charney. But the main summer action always centred at 1910 Clinton Avenue, where Sam eschewed the childish games of hide-and-seek, but came out after dark to hold court – sometimes until midnight or later – with the Ravel children, Sid Tafler, myself, Susie and some of his pals from nearby Bedford Road (hello Allan Mardinger, Allan Segal, and a friend named Paul) to debate the weighty social and political issues of the day. One attribute about Sam that always struck me was how he sought others’ opinions and listened respectfully – even when he disagreed. He was also adept at making friends with people of any age. When we weren’t debating politics, we often played intense chess matches – a pursuit that appealed to the logical, strategic thinker in Sam. Sometimes, we would play two or three consecutive games with a soft summer breeze swaying the leaves on the tree branches as we sat on the hard concrete steps concentrating intently and silently under the dim light of the porch. As I recall, Sam related to me he had been a sickly child and had not participated in many sports. So it surprised me when he volunteered to teach me (five years younger than he was and an aspiring quarterback) how to throw a football. True to his form as a diligent scholar, he told me that he had studied the throwing motions of the great quarterbacks, including Sam “The Rifle” Etcheverry of the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL. I questioned in my mind whether his advice would work as I noted that his slender hands seemed more attuned to those of a pianist (or a dentist) than those of a football player. He advised me to make the football brush my ear on my arm’s forward motion to ensure a perfect spiral with maximum distance and accuracy. To my delight, his advice worked and I eventually attained recognition from my peers when I was able to throw touchdown passes spanning three telephone poles during early evening pickup games during low-traffic periods on the street. Sam beamed like a proud, older brother. Interestingly, my passion for football inadvertently led to a journalism career when fellow journalist and Clintonite Sid Tafler recommended me for a summer sports reporting job at The Canadian Press in June 1972. Thank you, Sid, and thank you, Sam! I hope this memoriam explains to those who did not know Sam prior to his dental studies and outstanding professional career why he will always be “captain” of the “yellow submarine” for those of us who grew up with him on Clinton Avenue.

Sid Tafler - 12 days ago

I am amazed at the many hundreds of messages left here for this very fine man I knew as a boy many years ago. Sammy and his parents and sister Susie were my next door neighbours on Clinton Avenue in Montreal, Sammy a true and wise friend, devoted to his family, his studies and piano playing. This goes back more than a half century but feels like yesterday. His dad told mine about his experiences in the Shoah--an amazing story of suffering and survival. Sending my sincere condolences to family and friends--we were lucky to know him, may his memory be a blessing.

Dear Sarah and family, My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Eric (Uri) Laxer - 14 days ago

I was so saddened to hear what happened to Dr. Israelovitch. He was my dentist before he went back to specialize in ortho, then my orthodontist for several years. He and his wife were always so kind to me and my family. I remember the day I was getting my braces on, I was his first patient of the day and his wife offered to have Sam drive me in with him in his Corvette, which was a pretty cool prospect when you are a 12 or 13 year old. I really wanted to drive with him, but I said no because I was a pretty shy kid. This is probably one of many examples of the 'extra stuff' he and his wife did for others. My deepest condolences to the whole family.

Mindy and Irving Schok - 15 days ago

Nos sincères condoléances pour la famille et pour son équipe de travail. Dr. Israelovitch était un homme exemplaire avec une grande qualité humaine et professionnelle, excellent médecin et enseignant, le monde a besoin de personnes comme lui. Courage à sa famille et à son équipe.

Mike Meligrigoris - 17 days ago

Finding out today from Maria that Sam passed away so tragically is very difficult to accept, almost unreal. My deepest condolences to his entire family and staff. In the mid-eighties my parents were lucky when a mutual acquaintance suggested they call Sam to have my brother and I be evaluated and become his patients. He was an amazing Doctor and person, helping my parents who didn't understand English that well fully trust and understand what he would be doing and why. Even as a young kid Sam was always able to make me feel that I was an integral part of my treatment plan and ultimate success, a rare trait. His work was a defining part of my life because of the confidence my smile gave me...to this day 30 years later people ask me about my smile and my response is always the same: I thank my parents and Dr. Israelovitch for what they see. This process began anew four or so years ago when we brought our daughters to be evaluated, one of which became his patient. His kindness, skill, whit, talent and compassion was truly on full display in this second phase of my relationship with Sam. I didn’t know of his music, but I am not surprised he had passion and talent for it…that’s the kind of person he was. God rest his soul.

PAULA BLITSTEIN (Toronto) - 18 days ago

Dear Sarah and family, My deepest condolences on the tragic passing of your beloved Sam. I met Sam when my daughters were treated by him. He had an amazing disposition with a bright smile and a soft, yet confident demeanour. When I would meet him outside his office, that beautiful smile and engaging greeting was forever present.

BDH

Esther Abikhzer - 20 days ago

To the Israelovitch family, My sincere condolences for the tragic loss of Dr. Israelovitch. Dr Israelovitch was my orthodontist for almost 10 years. He was a real perfectionist and cared about each and every patient of his. As much as he was quiet while working, he would tell me stories while I was sitting in the chair, so that I don't get bored. He was very kind and patient. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Uri Ravel - 20 days ago

Sam is gone, and an echo of our loss will be felt forever. In time, it will cease to be harsh, stunning and overwhelming. But it will be felt in every corner, every pause in my daily routines, every one of my contemplative moments. I will feel it as a fleeting tap on my shoulder, a shadowy presence, an inexplicable silence. And then I will know with certainty that every step forward will carry an empty space where the loving kindness and gentleness of a friend is gone forever.

DR JOANNE WALFORD - 20 days ago

We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Dr. Sam's tragic passing. Words cannot explain.. or even comfort you at this difficult time. Sam was a colleague, and a teacher of mine. So helpful, soft spoken, gentle, and exacting in his treatments for patients. What a terrible shock. A great loss to our community.

Joseph Pleet - 21 days ago

Jeffrey Bergman - 21 days ago

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Dr. Isrealovitch’s family. I have known him for over 25 years as was my orthodontist and I remember him being a kind and gentle man. I also remember him being very dedicated to my teeth being straight. He wanted my teeth to be perfect, but after about 6/7 years of driving into CDN from DDO and being poked in the month, I had enough. I remember telling him that he had a deadline that I wanted my braces off before I went to camp that year, and he agreed to my surprise. Going to his office was part of growing up and I will always remember that. Over, the last several years I used to bump into him and jokingly state ‘are my teeth straight’ and he laughed. When I heard the news my heard sank as he was a wonderful guy.

Partsafas Family - 22 days ago

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family. During the past 27 years he treated my husband, daughter and son always with a dedication and perfectionism not easily found today. My son at 8 years old was "one of the hardest cases I've seen so far" yet he persevered for 10 years with him and today at 20 years old he smiles freely and you could never tell he even had a problem. That is the true definition of a great doctor so dedicated to his patients! He was very kind and patient during our meetings always making sure I understood different options and even thanking me for my patience and dedication in not missing appointments and doing exactly what he asked of us. We only knew him through his profession but after reading all these wonderful tributes we see there was so much more to him. A great loss to his loved ones but know that there are many, many people out there, unknown to you, who share in your grief and sorrow. May he rest in eternal peace and may your family know no further sorrow.

Julie Dolman - 23 days ago

To the entire Israelovitch family, my deepest condolences on Sam’s sudden passing. I have many memories of my time in his chair. He was an exceptional orthodontist, a perfectionist, a gentle soul and a great friend to my father. I know there are no magic words, but may all your wonderful memories and those shared by others bring you comfort during this terribly difficult time.

Nancy Rother - 23 days ago

Dear Sarah and family. As I write, I am listening to a piano piece by Schubert which Sam recently told him he loved to play and was working on improving. I so appreciated the musical friendship I had with Sam and the opportunity this shared study gave me to know this lovely man. We met as adults at a musical summer camp where we played a duet and engaged in the common silliness of camp; complaining about the food and gossiping about the teachers. I loved Sam’s quiet and wry sense of humour and I always saw and benefited from his kind and caring nature. The musical soirées which we planned together over the years brought us further together as friends in our shared passion, and anxiety . I marvelled at his work ethic, his talent, his humility and grace. I appreciated the hospitable and warm embrace Sam - and Sarah - always offered to me in your home. I was made to feel like family. I am deeply deeply saddened by Sam’s death and Stan and I send you Sarah and all the family our most sincere sympathies.

Wade Boroff and Lisa McBride - 23 days ago

Dear Sarah and family. We are deeply saddened and shocked to hear about the tragic news. Sam has a very special place in my heart. When my father passed away, I was only 15 years old. Sam had become a shoulder to lean on. He really took care of me during the shiva and stood right beside me for all the prayers every day. He guided me in a time that I was truly lost. He and my dad were best friends. Every time I saw Sam, he reminded me of my dad. Very similar characters. It was always nice to talk with him and I never missed the chance to do so. In some strange way, being with him was Iike being with my own father. He also gave me a great smile and had a part in me becoming a dentist. It is with a very heavy heart that I compose this email today. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family.

Dear Israelovitch Family, Working in the Orthodontic Industry, I’ve known Sam for over 23 years. My wife met Sam back in 2007 during a company meeting in Costa Rica. To this day, she would ask me, “How is Sam doing”? She met him once. Fourteen years ago. He played the piano in the hotel lounge. Everyone stopped and listened. I remember like it was yesterday. Please accept our condolences for your loss of such a warm and wonderful man. Steve Bianchi and Michelle Dubois

Billy and Keila Finkelstein - 24 days ago

Dear Dear Sarah and Family, It's taken us these last few days to try and put our thoughts together after hearing about Sam's most tragic and sudden passing. We had started writing these words down so many times and just couldn't finish. Our hearts are broken. Our deepest condolences to all of you. We have been friends since dental school. Always a gentle, soft spoken, warm and caring soul. In the very beginning of our careers when Sam decided to go back to study orthodontics and I was just opening my office he referred many of his original patients my way. Many of them are patients of mine to this day. Over the years we have spent so many wonderful moments together; dental meetings, class reunions and more recently a special European cruise with confrères. Scrolling through the many, many condolences you can readily see how Sam touched everyone in such a special way. with his passion, humor, love of music and professional dedication. His very essence was expressed so beautifully by Adam and the girls. May you know no more sorrow and may all the memories you hold so dear give you strength and comfort during this most difficult time. With all our love , Billy and Keila BDE

Mark Steiman - 24 days ago

I am heartbroken. Sam was my very best friend. He was always there for me. As his children said at the funeral, he always had time for them. Well, the fact is he always had time fo everyone. What a great listener he was, and when he laughed, you couldn’t help laughing with him. Imagine a world made up of Sams. Like the song says, “what a wonderful world this would be”. I loved him, and I will miss him. He was the best.

Gloria Baranowski and Jacob Tink - 24 days ago

Since the early days of dental school, we have both known Sam as a humble, scrupulously honest, meticulous and gentle soul. He was always a very well respected member of our profession. Writing these words now feels utterly surreal. Knowing that Baruch Dayan HaEmes can afford Sarah, his family and his dear friends with some comfort is a consolation. A second in time.....There are no words. Jacob and Gloria

May memories of his specialness provide you with some comfort at this time.

Allan Coopersmith - 24 days ago

Dear Sarah and Family. I have been trying to write this first line for 30 minutes and there are just no words to express the sadness I feel for Sam’s accidental and tragic passing. Everyone who met Sam was impressed with his solid and honest character which laid the foundation for so many strong and respected friendships and relationships which lasted lifetimes. We all know that Sam’s skills as an orhdodontist were as exceptional as was his modesty and humanity. It was this rare combination which set Sam apart and fostered the respect and admiration of his colleagues and patients and friends. I would like to extend to Sarah and his family and friends my deepest condolences. Rest In Peace my friend - we will all miss you very much.

Jay Hannon & Family - 24 days ago

To the family of Dr. Israelovitch, we offer our deepest condolences on your sudden and tragic loss. We are so shocked and saddened by this terrible news. Dr. Israelovitch was both our daughters’ orthodontist for well over 10 years. Dr. Israelovitch was the consummate professional - a dedicated practitioner and perfectionist, and always a gentlemen to talk to. He gave us so much of his precious time to discuss treatment options, and was always available outside office hours, whether in person or by phone. He will always be remembered for his philosophy of going the longer, more difficult route to save permanent teeth, rather than choosing faster and easier ways to shorten treatment time. It is because of his unique and special dedication that the profession has just lost a one-of-a-kind, truly exceptional orthodontist. We will never forget how appreciative he was when we thanked him for all his beautiful work that he did. He was very proud of his work. We will always have forever lasting memories of him in the beautiful smiles he crafted for our family. We will miss him very much. Our deepest sympathies to his whole family.

My deepest condolences and prayers to your entire family.

Liz Alba Garcia Alvarez & Family - 24 days ago

Our deepest condolences to the family. My brother and I have been patients of the doctor for many years, and we are more than grateful for his work. His dedication was totally unwavering, and he would take the time needed to make sure my smile would be perfect (I've been his patient for ten years now). That man really had a great sense of duty, working long hours everyday and even calling patients on the weekend if a follow-up was needed for our case. We talked on Saturday (the day before his passing) and I was astonished and more than pleased that he'd call just to make sure everything was okay with a recent problem I had mentioned him. I will be forever grateful for everything he did. His loss saddens our family. We send you all recomforting and warming thoughts. Please take care!

Dear Sarah, Lisa, Robb and family, We are so saddened to hear of this tragic loss. I met Dr. I years ago when he started taking care of Noah-Kai, then Rowen. Jack was looking forward to having his turn. He knew my dad professionally, as he had been his student years ago. Every time I came in he'd ask how my dad was doing. He enjoyed having music discussions with Rowen and technical discussions with NK. I spent so much time at that office, it felt like home- like when my parents had their dental practice. Dr. I was kind, patient and a mensch. We will miss him terribly!

Dear Sarah and family, I am so saddened by Sam’s tragic and sudden passing. We have been friends since dental school. Sam was my kid’s orthodontist and my referral when my patients needed an orthodontist. He was such a professional, meticulous and caring. Outside of our professional lives we were such close friends, we travelled the world together, our favorite trip being to Africa. Another memorable time was when we went to Poland, and located the homes where Sam’s father had lived before the war. We found Sam’s grandfather’s grave and Sam said Kaddish there, tears in his eyes. During my wife Rona’s long illness Sarah and Sam were both there for us and I am eternally grateful. He was such a kind considerate person, a real mentsche and I will miss him terribly. My heart goes out to all of you.

When we heard the shocking news of Sam's sudden and tragic death this morning we were in a state of disbelief and incredible sadness. He was one of the kindest, gentlest men we knew. Even though we hadn't seen or spoken to each other recently, we thought of you and Sam as dear friends. We attended each others celebrations, enjoyed your company and always were eager to hear how you and your children and grandchildren were doing. Sam was such an inspiration and role model for Jonathan. After treating him for many years with great skill, kindness and patience, they ended up with a genuine deep fondness and respect for each other. We will always be grateful for Sam's mentorship of Jonathan. We are left devastated and reeling from Sam's untimely passing. We can't imagine how you and your family must be feeling after such a traumatic event. The fact that we can't physically be with you to offer our love and support makes it even tougher. Please know that Sam will always be remembered with love for the very special man that he was. We are so sorry for your loss. You were a beautiful couple. We hope that the wonderful memories you have of your life together will bring you some comfort during this very difficult and sad time.

Jack Turkewicz - 26 days ago

Dear Sarah, Melanie, Lisa and Lauren It is impossible for me to believe that I am now writing these words about Sam , a friend and colleague with whom I have shared so much the past 40 years - from teaching at the Université de Montréal, to traveling together to many orthodontic meetings with him and Louis, to attending numerous local meetings and social functions and to having the privilege of witnessing his prowess on the piano. The picture of Sam at the piano is a perfect reflection of him-passionate about his music, his profession and his patients with that smile and twinkle in his eye that characterized his sharp sense of humour. Sam's professional dedication and perfectionism were endless-he would debond no patient before he was completely satisfied. The tragic loss of such a gentle, talented, caring and compassionate person is truly heartbreaking and leaves us only with warm and endearing memories of Sam. My sincere sympathies at this incredibly difficult time. Jack Turkewicz

Dear Sarah and all your family, I wasn’t sure that this morning was real, as I received a call from a colleague of my late boss Dr. Dolman. I thought is this ever going to end? Are you serious? Sam? No way! This just can’t be as I’m seeing him Friday for my treatment. I am beyond devastated Sarah for you and your family. Sam was the finest, kindest, most outstanding Ortho, meticulous, and just such an amazing human being. Always supportive, always offered me the best dental advise, and truly cared immensely for you and his amazing family. He cared about his patients and his orthodontic family will never forget him. He was simply a great human being. This is truly another shock to me and all of us who worked on the third floor with Sam, neighbors we were, and now another amazing dentist leaves our hearts. Baruch Dayan Haemet and may all your wonderful memories be cherished in your hearts forever.

Although I only knew Sam through my relationship with him in Alpha Omega functions, I came to know him over the last three decades as a humble, kind, deeply intellectual and generous Mensch. I hope that you find solace in your loving memories of the wonderful human being that he was. Harry Wise

Lissa, Perry, Josh, Sam Tenser - 26 days ago

Dr. Sam, as he was affectionately known in our family, looked after our kids with the greatest of care. We came to know him as a profoundly warm, gentle, and impassioned man who truly loved his work and the people he encountered. He was always so attentive to details, including parents in his treatment plan, and visibly enthusiastic when explaining his craft. Having spent so much time in his presence - even socially at times - we got to know him as a person as well. He was never more animated than when he talked about his beloved family. His pride in you was palpable. This is a tragic, devastating loss to our community, to the medical community, and most of all, to the family he cherished. Our hearts go out to you, his wife, his children and grandchildren, his extended family, and the staff who worked so closely with him every day, and all who loved him. May his neshama have the highest aliyah, may his memory always be a blessing, and may you all be comforted by the scores of others who mourn him. Baruch Dayan ha’Emet.

Dear Sarah, Melanie, Lisa and Lauren........what a horrible tragedy. It is hard to believe that something like this has happened........we lived two houses away from each other for so many years, our kids were about the same age and went to the same schools. Sam's parents were Holocaust survivors , and were so proud of their son , a brilliant student, a talented musician, a wonderful family man...he had it all....where is the justice in our world ? Just remember what he left you his family........cherish the memories and he would want you to continue your lives in happiness. So sorry for your loss .... from Gerry Rudick, daughters Joelle, Elana & Lauren and special friend Lilly Li

Sarah Samra - 26 days ago

Dear Israelovitch family, This is tragic news. Dr. Israelovitch looked after the teeth of both my children. As such, he and I spent many years metaphorically together as I waited while he worked his magic on them. I always felt I had a personal connection with him despite his sometimes brusque demeanour. He was a perfectionist for whom every child was his own. He answered questions with honesty and patience and took pride in the achievements of my children because he had seen them grow up. I trusted him implicitly. I owe him their beautiful smiles. To his wife, children and extended family, I humbly offer my condolences and tears. These are hard days. May you find some solace in each other and in the knowledge that Dr. Sam did so much good even strangers you never met weep at his loss, May you know no more sorrow. Sarah Samra
