Richard Lewis Wexler

Beloved husband, father, grandfather and community leader passed away on Oct. 19 after a brave battle with cancer. Born and raised in Chicago, he spent his career as a Real Estate attorney but devoted his non-working hours to the betterment of Jewish lives in Chicago, the former Soviet Union and Israel. His commitment to the Jewish people was driven by his belief that the world can be repaired through hard work and force of will. He traveled the world-over for meetings, fundraising and to share his passion for the Jewish world with his family. He will be greatly missed by the love of his life, Roberta (nee Siegel), his children Deborah (Jonathan) Sokobin, Joshua Wexler, Jon (Amie) Wexler, his precious grandchildren Benjy, Ezra and Lily Sokobin; Hanna, Jackson, Tucker, Fern and Talia Wexler. Grandpa/Baba was ALWAYS ready to jump on a plane to New York, DC or Portland, to visit grandkids and also to Napa, CA where he and Bobbi spent many wonderful weeks with family & friends. Those who knew him will miss his sharp wit, incessant writings and zest for life. Graveside Service Friday, 10:00 am at Shalom Memorial Park Cemetery, (Section V Moriah) 1700 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights. In lieu of flowers memorials to the Jewish United Fund, (JUF) 30 South Wells Street, Room 3134, Chicago, IL 60606 or your charity of choice, would be appreciated.
