In Loving Memory of Burt Cohen
Burt Cohen, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully on August 9, 2023, at the age of 83. Born on April 4, 1940, in New York City, his passing leaves a void that will be felt deeply by all who knew and loved him.

Burt's legacy is carried on by his adoring children, Lisa (Martin), Cindy, and Andrew (Michelle), as well as his cherished grandchildren, Remi (Ryan), Hailey, Jordan, Alix, Brandon, and Joseph. Burt's deep love for his family was evident in the many special moments he shared with each of them, fostering bonds that will endure through generations. His devotion to his family was unending, and his role as a father and grandfather brought him immeasurable joy.

Beyond his career in the garment district in New York, Burt possessed a myriad of interests and hobbies that reflected his vibrant spirit. He was an avid racquetball player, always seeking the thrill of the game, a little exercise and camaraderie. Burt's green thumb brought life and beauty to his surroundings. He enjoyed listening to and attending performances of all kinds of music but especially folk and country, which accompanied him on many journeys throughout his life.

Burt's memorable qualities included his joyful laughter, easy smile and compassionate heart. This extended beyond his immediate circle, as he dedicated his time and energy to volunteer work and lending a helping hand to those in need. His innate desire to fix things, even if they weren't broken, were a testament to his resourcefulness and determination.

Burt's memory will be honored during a graveside funeral service on Sunday August 13 at 10 am at Mount Ararat Cemetery, located at 1165 NY-109, Lindenhurst, NY. Following the service, shiva will be held from 11:30 am until 7 pm at Andrew and Michelle's home, 14 Newcastle Ave., Plainview, NY. and on Monday from 4 pm to 8 pm at Lisa and Marty's residence, 180 Old Colony Road, Hartsdale, NY.
Donations can be made to the Parkinson's Foundation in honor of Burt's enduring legacy of compassion, strength, and love.

Burt Cohen's presence in the lives of those who were fortunate to know him will be a reminder of the importance of laughter, love, and the immeasurable impact one soul can have on the world around them. May his memory be a blessing to us all.
