Nissan Bar-Lev, Nissan Buium Bar-Lev, age 78, passed away unexpectedly on August 2, 2022. Preceded in death by his parents, Hayyim and Haya Buium, and granddaughter Julia Bar-Lev. Survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Candy Bar-Lev, beloved children Joshua (Camaron), Benjy (Lauren), Ari (Ali), and Abby (James), and adoring grandchildren, Isabelle, Ruby, Sammie, Jake, Asher, Noah, Isaac, and Micah. Also survived by beloved colleagues in special education throughout the state and country. Born in Romania at the end of World War II, Nissan immigrated to Israel as a young child. At 21, he moved to the U.S. to pursue his dream of helping children with special needs, a dream that he worked to accomplish every day through the last day of his life. Generations of children with special needs are better off because of Nissan’s tireless advocacy. Nissan was deeply proud of his family, his work, his vegetable gardens, and the life that he and Candy created with their family. He will forever be known for his endless support of his children and grandchildren, his dedication to everything he endeavored, and his boundless generosity and energy. He will be deeply missed, but he will live on through all the good he did in the world. Funeral services 10 AM Friday, August 5, 2022 at Congregation Shalom, 7630 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Fox Point.
