The Izzy fund. An unjustified death. RIP DAD

42071996_1568691412476097_r.jpegAs some of you may know, my Dad Israel Kortright aka Izzy, lost his battle to diabetes and kidney disease on September 13, 2019. Although he had not been well for a while, this took us all by surprise. He had just been released from the hospital after being in a coma for 3 weeks. He was doing well and was in the process of physical rehabilitation.
My dad always tried to go the extra mile for his family and anyone that he cared for. He was a very humble man. He loved his kids and his family with all that he had. He leaves behind his 6 children, 5 grandchildren, a wife and whole family who will miss him dearly. My dad may be gone physically but he will always live on. We humbly ask for any donations to have my Dad’s wake on the Lower East Side and send him home in peace. God first. Thank you. Every little bit is appreciated.
