star-of-davidHoward Krasnoff, husband of Charlotte Michener-Krasnoff, passed away Thursday, October 3rd, 2013.  Howard has had a serious heart issue for a while and after some struggling, his end was peaceful and Charlotte, who has been his tirelessly devoted caregiver, was by his side the whole time in these final days. Howard celebrated his 89th birthday in August and he will be greatly missed by family and friends. He lived a long and full life.

Howard was awarded a Purple Heart in his years in the services and will be having a military burial, which will not be until Monday.  Please look out for an email tomorrow confirming details of funeral and shiva.

If you are able to volunteer to sit shemirah on behalf of the Hevre Kedisha, this will be much appreciated, as there are a lot of slots to cover.  Please call Evie Cohen on 303 507 7001 to get on the schedule.

Hamakom y’nachem – blessings of strength and comfort to Charlotte and to all of Howard’s family.
Shalom al nishmat Huna ben Avraham v’Chava – peace on Howard’s soul.

  3. Howard was a special Jew, who received a purple heart medal for his heroic fighting against the nazis. I met Howard for the first time during my Boulder Relief Effort trip. He was so captivating and exciting that I would stop by his house every night after a 15 + hour day of non stop work to be inspired by this legend. He was a therapist and continued to see patients until his passing day. He outlived all of his doctors predictions and took advantage of every day he had on this earth.
