Jack Rabinowitz 1927 - 2021

Jack Rabinowitz, 94, passed away peacefully on December 6, 2021.

Jack was a Brooklyn boy, a devoted son, a brave soldier and a man about town. At age 29, he married Arlene, the love of his life, and selflessly dedicated the rest of his life to her and their daughters, Gail and Julia. After working hard for many years to provide for his family, he retired and devoted a meaningful amount of time to the care and upbringing of his grandson, Jason. Family, friends and loved ones knew first hand of Jack’s unconditional love and support. Jack loved and will be missed by his great grandchildren: Sophia, Isaiah, Aiden, Lennon, Caroline and Aaron, and his extended family: Lisa, Ryan, Jackie and Josh. Jack’s daugthers’ spouses Joe and Wendy both had close relationships with him and they miss him terribly. Jack is reunited with his love, Arlene, his wife of 63+ years, his parents, his sister Sally and his brother-in-law, Bernie. He will be remembered forever with love. We invite your memories of Jack.

    From the moment I met him at Lundy’s, I recognized Jack as a gem. Years later, when he put his arm around me and told me that now he had a third daughter, he became my family. I always looked forward to my time with him, filled as it was with the stories he loved to share. I can only bear his loss with the belief in his joy at being reunited with his soulmate, Arlene. I have been so blessed to have had them both in my life. Xoxox

    Dad, I think I took it for granted that your steady presence in our lives would always be there. And you let me take it for granted. Your loving support was something I thought everyone had. As I have learned, this isn’t always true which makes your role as a dad even more meaningful for me. You were a great father and I miss you everyday.
