Mr. Frostig, his parents and 2 sisters, Rivka and Gittel lived there until the Nazis occupied the town in 1941 and forced the family into the ghetto and eventually a labor camp.

The Frostigs’ started Frostig Supermarket in DeKalb County. Mr. Frostig married Adolfa Kruger of Fitzgerald, GA in 1955. They met on a blind date. They settled in Buckhead and raised 3 boys, Jerry, Ronnie, and Randy. Mr. Frostig owned and ran a package store near Underground Atlanta from the 1960’s through the 1990’s.

Mr. Frostig recently lived in Berman Commons. Mr. Frostig is predeceased by his wife of 27 years, Adolfa. He is survived by his sons, Jerry, Ronnie, and Randy Frostig, all of Atlanta.

    May the memories of our loved ones remain for a blessing.

    I knew Haskell literally my entire life. He was my father’s best friend and maybe the only man who could give him calm, rational advice. Haskell always remembered me, always welcomed me home, always kept me up to date, always had an open heart for me. I cannot express how sorry I am. My deepest sympathies to you all.
