With sadness, we announce the passing, on March 31, 2017, of Nathan Fingold at 96 years of age.
Nate was recently predeceased by his wife “Toots”, with whom he shared 71 years. He leaves behind his children Martin (Linda) Fingold, Karen Simkin and Arlene (Mike) Charach. He will be missed by his grandchildren, Marni (Hartley) Miller, Steven (Carrie) Fingold, Jory (Joelly) Simkin, Adam Simkin (Elle), Erin Simkin (Josh), Carly (Mike) Lightstone, and Kevin Charach, as well as 11 great-grandchildren. Nate was born in Winnipeg in 1920 to Harry and Sophie (Solodky) who immigrated from Russia. His older siblings, Micky and Goldie are predeceased. Nate was in the Air Force when he married Toots in 1944. He retired from the R.C.A.F. and articled at an accounting firm while pursuing his five year degree at the University of Manitoba to become a chartered accountant. Nate and Toots played golf, bridge and bowled with friends, and after he retired in 1987, they spent their winters in Fort Lauderdale. Nate will be remembered as a man of integrity and dignity. He was quiet and wise, modest and responsible, and highly regarded in his profession. The family would like to acknowledge Elena Episcope for her wonderful care these past few years. In honour of Nate, donations to the “Nate and Toots Fingold Family Fund” at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba would be graciously accepted.
