Shmuel Finck, longtime resident of Crown Heights, and father and grandfather of a proud Chabad family, passed away on early Thursday morning, 19 Teves, 5779.
He was 63 years old and suffered from a short illness.
Reb Shmuel was born in Cleveland, Ohio and became a proud baal teshuva during his years in college. Together with his wife, Miriam, he raised a large Chabad family.
Reb Shmuel was a vibrant, vivacious individual with a thirst for life and Torah. He was a tremendous baal tzedakah and supported many Shluchim throughout the world in their endeavors. He never said no to people when they came to him in their times of need and there was always a steady stream of visitors whom he greeted with open arms.
Reb Shmuel was dedicated to helping college students experience Torah and Yiddishkeit and together with his peers set up a scholarship program for students to learn in eretz yisroel.
He is survived by his wife, Miriam, and children, Chana Zelda Werde of Crown Heights, Mordechei Shimon Finck of Crown Heights, Levi Yitzchak Finck of Daytona Beach, FL, Avraham Meir Finck of Los Angeles, CA, Chaya Mushka Revere of Los Angeles, CA, Menachem Mendel Finck of Crown Heights, Shaul Yisroel Finck of Denver, CO, Shneur Zalman Finck of Daytona Beach, FL, Devorah Leah Finck of Crown Heights and Ari Abba Finck of Crown Heights.
