Yesha’s parents came to Mandatory Palestine in 1936. His father Shlomo came from Poland, and his mother Esther (Buchbinder) from Krasnik, Poland. Yesha was born May 7, 1940 in Tel Aviv. In Israel he studied and worked in electronics. In 1968 he moved to Canada and married Leah that same year. Over the course of his career he specialized in communication equipment and navigational aids and worked for a number of companies.
Yesha was very gifted, highly skilled and knowledgeable when it came to electronics and all kinds of machines from the simplest to the most complex. He possessed a great deal of artistic ability too. People constantly sought out his advice and he was always generous with his time. A wonderful husband, father and friend, he will be sorely missed.
Yesha leaves his wife Leah of almost fifty four years, their sons Dan and Jonathan, Jonathan’s wife Laura and their children Aaron and Dahlia. In Israel, his sister Tikva, predeceased by her husband Yakov, and their children Shira and Ronen.
