  • OBITUARY

    Herbert Ray Karp died January 21, 2018 at the age of 94. He was born in Atlanta on December 28, 1923 and lived here his entire life. He attended Boys High and then Emory University. He joined the Army serving in France during WWII. It was love at first sight on a weekend pass at the JCC in Kansas City, MO, when he spotted his soon-to-be sweetheart, Estelle, singing as the soloist on stage. In their almost 71 years of marriage, he ran a successful automotive parts business. In addition to his business, he was an accomplished professional artist, including designing costumes and sets of many Ahavath Achim Sisterhood productions and even created the Chuppahs for his two daughters’ weddings which were later donated to the synagogue for others to enjoy. After he served in France, he stayed in Paris studying art. His art teacher asked him to stay and be her protégé. He showed every summer in the Piedmont Art Festival. He had several one man art shows. He had a number of commissioned art pieces, including a mosaic called “the Kabuki” for the Montag family and another mosaic called “Scheherazade” for the Meyer Family of State Wholesalers. He also had a commissioned sculpture of a candelabra hanging on the wall in a Funeral home in Decatur, Ga. His hobbies included traveling the world with Estelle, collecting Sumida prompting a successfully authored book, sharing a love of gourmet dining with four other couples for 41 years, and gardening. Herbert is survived by his loving wife, Estelle, of 70 wonderful years. His children: Sharon (Bob) Levi, Lauri (Steve) Lavine; Grandchildren: Audra (Jason) Priluck, Traci (Jeff) Wilensky, and Chad (Julia) Lavine; Great-Grandchildren: Justin & Garrett Priluck, Ava & Dylan Wilensky and Olivia Lavine.
