Abraham Orron 1927 - 2018

Abraham Orron peacefully passed away on July 14th at the age of 91, after a brief illness. He was born in Tel Aviv, raised in Jerusalem and received his medical degree in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1959 he moved to New York City with his family where he established a long and distinguished urology practice in Washington Heights and The Bronx. After his retirement from private practice, he worked at the North Central Bronx division of NYC Health + Hospitals until just three months ago. He was beloved by his patients and revered by his colleagues and young physicians whom he mentored. He was an avid photographer, classical music and opera lover, Francophile, skier and sailor. He sailed out of City Island on his boats, Ashdod and Karma, for over forty years, in Sunday club races, long summer cruises to Nantucket and lazy weekend days, leaving his family with countless fond memories of adventure. He is survived by his sons, Dan and David, his daughter-in-law, Dara, grandchildren Zvika, Jonathan, Bar, Dina and Ben, nieces and nephews, Ron, Jordan, Ada, Dorit, Johanna, Galya and Orly and eight great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his sister, Rivka. Donations in Abe’s honor may be made to the Jewish National Fund at www.jnf.org
