HomeObituariesIRVING KATZ


It is with great sadness that the family of Irving Katz announces his peaceful passing at his home on November 17, 2022, at the age of 96.
He is survived by his devoted daughters, Arlene Hochman (Jerry), Jill Minuk (Darrell); grandchildren, Michael Hochman (Sari), Jon Hochman, Amanda Minuk (Scott Callegari), and Alex Minuk; his treasured great-granddaughters, Hazel, Solly and Audrey. He was married to the love of his life, Gilda (Silverberg), and later to Florence (Pepper), who had both predeceased him.
Irving had a dental practice in East Kildonan that spanned almost half a century. Golfing and spending time at his winter home in Florida were two of his many pastimes. He was a prolific painter and sculptor. He often said he would hear music that would translate into creativity to make his art pieces. His children and grandchildren are proud to have many pieces of his work in their homes. Many homes and galleries around the world are also fortunate to have his work on display.
If a man’s life is to be defined by the legacy he leaves behind, then Irving was a successful man.
We would like to extend a thank you to his caregiver Nila, who played a special role for him alongside Arlene and Jill.
A private graveside service was held at the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery on November 20, 2022.
Irving will be missed by family and friends.
In honour of Irving’s memory, donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
