On Wednesday, July 27th, 2022 Aizik “Zack” Mendel Kurman, loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend, unfortunately, passed away at the age of 71. Aizik was born on January 4th, 1951 in Riga, Latvia (formerly USSR) to Mendel and Esther Kurman. Together they escaped the grips of communism and fled to Israel to start a new life of freedom. Aizik served in the IDF Air Force as a mechanic for 2 years. In 1977, he moved to the US and became a citizen of the country he loved and where he lived out his remaining years.
