In loving memory of

Marc Attar
March 5, 1933 - July 14, 2021

Beloved, Marc Attar, father to Michael and Alan Attar, died peacefully in his sleep on July 14, 2021. He was 88. Marc was born on March 5, in 1933 in Marrakesh, Morocco. As a young man, he and his entire family emigrated from Morocco to Israel. After serving in the (IDF) Israeli Army, Marc took his bride, Nina, and two sons and emigrated to New York City. He got a job within days even though he did not speak English.

Marc received a degree as an Assistant Pharmacist from New York University and worked at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, for many years. In 1976 he saw an opportunity and opened a large health food store in Riverdale, NY. named Hazelnut Health & Diet Foods. The business was very successful, and he retired in 1994. He was a tireless provider for his family and loved to garden, read and dabble in real estate.

Marc knew the God of the Bible and we are comforted that he is in Heaven.
