Obituary

William Yahiel, 95, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, on Sunday, January 21, 2018, in San Antonio, Texas . He was born on April 21, 1922, in Thessaloniki, Greece, and lived there during the time of the Nazi regime. He and his family were sent to Auschwitz, where he spent twoyears of his life and where he lost both his mother, Estrea, and his brother, Jacques.

After surviving the Holocaust , William moved to America, where he lived the American dream. He built, with his wife Ginette, a rich family life in San Antonio, a city which he loved. He co-owned a successful business (State Leather and Shoe Co.), made life-long friendships , and was a core member of a tight-knit community.

William is survived by his adoring wife of 61 years, Ginette, his son, Dan Yahiel, his daughter, Tammy Yahiel, and his granddaughters, Rebecca Yahiel and Katherine Yahiel, all of whom were his pride and joy.
