Sam Kohl (Shmuel Kojl), at age 94, surrounded by his family, on March 11, 2020. Predeceased by his loving wife of 57 years, Rose Kohl. Beloved father and father-in-law to Helen (Chris), Dorothy (Jeff) and Susie. Grandfather to Jason (Ashleigh), Joy, Ryan (Wallis), Lisa (Howie), Kal (Ann-Marie), Laurel (Victor), Jordan (Carly). Great-grandfather to Talia and Ava, Sophie and Ethan. Special thanks for care from Gosha, Bhing, Nimfa, and the staff at Viva Retirement Home. We are also so grateful for the compassionate care he received during his last days at Hill House Hospice.
Born in Szczebrzesyn, Poland, Sam survived the Holocaust and was a member of the Palmach in Israel’s War of Independence, before arriving in Toronto with Rose and Helen in 1951. He was a successful small business owner, an avid swimmer and card player, everyone’s financial advisor, and most importantly, a real mensch. He will be deeply missed by many family and friends in Toronto and in Israel.
