Words from Yoni’s Family:

In happier times Yoni was lighthearted, and regularly found humor in many everyday things, notably himself, and his jovial nature was infectious.

He was a magnificently creative problem-solver, through and through, no problem or system so complex that he couldn’t figure out how it worked, usually finding a better or more efficient solution in the process.

He was a patient and loving father, his boys his raison d'être.

He opened his arms and his heart to many, despite not always enjoying reciprocity.

He was above all, loyal and dedicated.

I will always cherish our last days together – sharing a meal and a laugh, an inside joke, or a silly memory from our childhood.

To say that Yoni is sorely missed is a gross understatement. And now, with his shine extinguished, the world is noticeably darker.

Rest in peace, Yoni – your laughter will forever echo in my ears, and in my heart.


Words from Yoni’s Professional Family:

Words cannot express how saddened we are about the loss of Yoni.  He was absolutely brilliant, yet humble and so willing to help anyone that needed it.  He was a complete joy to be around.  He was so well loved by all of us in the Realogy family, we are heartbroken in losing him.  I will forever think of him as my "work son" and will miss him as if he were my own.  I can only hope that in time, the pain of losing a wonderful person such as Yoni, will be a bit easier for your family.  Please know he was well loved and his memory will live on, as he was a big part of our lives for many years.
