BENCHIMOL, Marc
December 27, 2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Marc Benchimol announces his passing on Sunday, December 27, 2020, at the age of 82.

Marc will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 45 years, Etel and his children, Evelyn (Michael) and Alberto (Françoise). He will also be fondly remembered by his six grandchildren: Danica, Marc, Tristan, Diego, Nikita and James. His older brother Hillel, nephews Joe & Isaac, cousin Raquel and other family members will also miss him dearly.

He marked the lives of many and will be sorely missed.  He is being honoured in Elda, Spain, his second home, with flags flying at half mast this week.

A celebration of his life will be planned at a later date when we can gather and party as he would’ve liked.  In the meantime, it is simply asked that you raise a glass and make a toast in his memory.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Voluntas (voluntas.ca, 514-695-7979)

Gathering at a later date

Location to be confirmed

    Marco, me enseñaste que hay que esforzarse y en la misma medida saber disfrutar de la recompensa. Siento dolor, pero es mayor la felicidad por lo que hemos compartido. Señor Benchimol: buen viaje!

    Una de las personas más buenas que he conocido, con un corazón de oro. Entregado a su familia y trabajo. Personalmente puedo decir que tuve el privilegio de conocerlo y decir que marcó mi vida. Un beso y una margarita con mucho tequila a donde quiera que estes Marc!

    Siempre te recordaremos como la persona que fuiste, una persona que pensaba diferente, que solo se preocupaba por las cosas que verdaderamente eran importantes y que irradiaba una luz desde el corazón que nos sacabas muchas veces alguna sonrisa. En definitiva, contigo aprendimos una nueva forma de vivir la vida.
    Por ello, esta noche con la ultima campanada, mi brindis ira para ti y para las personas importantes que nos dejaron este año trágico.
    Estés donde estés, siempre te recordaremos con cariño como lo que fuiste… the Boss.
