חבל דאבדין ולא משתחים
אבדה צדיק
ומחה ה דמעה מעל כל פנים
והקיצו ורננו והוא בראשם

He will be missed. He taught us a lot and always had a smile on his face. He has a beautiful family

I wonder what relationship he had with Rabbi Dovid Ezagui, shochet and sofer who lived in Manchester, who was a great friend of my father. Perhaps his brother? The age would fit, maybe he moved to Eretz Yisrael. Illustrious family, so sad to read this.

Such Good Memories!!

I remember the kindness of this family. As children, we were friendly with the Rabbi’s a”h daughters and we were often in their house. It was a beacon of warmth and yirat shamayim.
That the levaya was on Gimmel Tammuz is no coincidence. A lifetime of Messirut nefesh for the Rebbe’s cause.

What a big loss for our community, boruch hashem for letting us spend time with this special man. His smile and good attitude was infectious, he left behind wonderful children that will keep that warmth alive, what a humble, wonderful man, boruch dayin emes

As the connotation of his nam Yitzhak his smile was contagious and he radiated kindness and empathy always giving his whole heart soul and body to bring another and another Yid closer to yidishkite sometimes at a cost to his health and family He was indeed a very rare personality with self sacrifice hard to find in today’s society.
Call it old fashion carachter with principals over
Self aggrandizement.He truly gave his life to the benefit of Am Yisroel. May we soon reunite with him and Moshiach.
