Melvin Burton Margolis (Moshe Ber ben Chaim Yosef), father of Bonai Shalom member Dr. Michael Margolis, passed away in the early hours of Shabbat, December 26, 2020. Mel has been living locally in the Balfour community and declining mentally and physically in the last months and years. Michael and Beth have been devoted to his care throughout.
Melvin Margolis was a dentist and served in the US Air Force as well as the Army Reserves. He is predeceased by his wife Letty who died seven years ago and Mel never recovered from this loss. Mel will be buried next to her in Chicago later this week once arrangements have been made.
Any information about shiva will follow when we have it.
Hamakom y’nachem. Our prayers of comfort and strength to Michael, Beth and Ezra and to Michael’s sister and her family.
Peace on the neshama of Moshe Ber ben Chaim Yosef
