LAURENCE USISKIN February 24, 1920 - January 15, 2010 Larry passed away peacefully at age 89 after a brief illness. He was predeceased by his parents David and Esther Usiskin and is survived by his wife of 60 years, Roz (Wolodarsky), his three sons, Michael (Jean), Arnold (Robyn), and Len (Priscilla), his brother Sid (Viki) and sister Marcia, his grandchildren Jana, Mika, Josh, Beth, Aaron and Jacqui, and the extended Usiskin and Wolodarsky families. Larry was the owner of Warkov-Safeer Leather Ltd. where he worked for 55 years until he retired in 1994. Larry was an active and engaged citizen of his community and of the world. He followed world affairs very closely and read voraciously about everything. He was a life-long member of the United Jewish Peoples Order and through this organization was active on human rights and social justice issues for Jews and for all people. Larry was gentle and non-judgmental. His wise advice was given only when asked for, never calling attention to himself. Instead, he quietly made sure all that was needed was taken care of for those around him. Through example in word and deed, he created a legacy of support and caring for his immediate and extended family. He will be missed but never forgotten for the inner strength he shared with everyone. The funeral was held at the Chesed Shel Emes Chapel on Monday, January 18, 2010. Pallbearers were David Usiskin, Harvey Chochinov, Alan Lacovetsky, Steven Bagel, Josh Usiskin and Aaron Usiskin. Honourary pallbearers were his granddaughters Jana Usiskin, Mika Settee Usiskin, Beth Usiskin and Jacqui Usiskin. Donations can be made in Larry's memory to the charity of your choice.
