It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Arch Honigman, at the age of 61, on Thursday, September 23rd. His death occurred as a result of complications from COVID19, despite being fully vaccinated and following public health guidelines.
Arch was a kind and gentle soul, a true mensch in every way. His generosity was extended to family, friends and countless others who crossed his path.
He loved the outdoors, riding his bike and spending many happy summers at his cottage at Winnipeg Beach. He could often be found sitting on the deck enjoying the sunshine surrounded by friends. Travelling was one of his favourite pastimes, with Miami Beach being at the top of his list.
Arch leaves to mourn his wife Joanna Biondi, his sister Brenda Honigman (Arnie Deltoff), nephews Shafer and Brody Honigman Deltoff, Matteo Wilson and niece Chiara Wilson. He was predeceased by his father Sam, his mother Edith, and by his brother Gary.
A graveside funeral took place at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Matthew Leibl. Pallbearers were Elliot Katz, Mitch Cosman, Gerald Levin, Mark Kagan, Tom Blumberg and Aaron Nudler. Honourary Pallbearers were Perry Rose & Jeff Rabb. A special thank you to Dr. Greg Wilson and Dr. Mitch Cosman for their ongoing medical support and direction. Donations in Arch’s memory can be made to the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation or charity of your choice.
Thanks for the 11 great years we had together, Arch.
