He was the beloved husband of Miriam (Mickey) Lemer; devoted father of Eric (Sabrina), Keith (Stephanie) and Jodi Moraru (Eldad); cherished “PopPop” to Alexandra and Vanessa Lemer, Jordyn, Lauren and Austin Lemer, and Eli and Talia Moraru; loving brother of Gary Lemer (Mary Ann); brother-in-law of Wilma and Stuart Bernstein and Suellen and the late Melvyn Estrin; and caring uncle to his nieces, nephews and their children.
