    Albert Tenenbaum, Avraham Ben Aharon v’ Chasya, age 94, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family.  Born in New York, the Tenenbaum family moved to Atlanta when Albert was a young child.  He graduated from Boys High and attended Georgia Tech until he joined his family in the grocery business.  He met his wife Tillie in 1949 and knew immediately she was the one for him.  Their courtship was long distance while he served in the Korean war.  His letters to her captured her heart and they were married in 1954.  Albert built the Great Savings grocery store, and was a savvy businessman.  He also dabbled in commercial real estate with his Galanti/Benator/Werbin familes.  His business reputation was built on honesty, fairness, and a straight-forward approach.  He was a life-time member at Congregation Shearith Israel and a long-time member of Congregation Or VeShalom.

    Albert was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 66 years, Tillie Galanti Tenenbaum (of blessed memory). He was a dedicated father to Charlotte (Joel) Marks, Lenore (Scott) Kaye, and Toby (David) Fagin.  He was also a devoted grandfather to Andrew (Chevi) Marks, Steven (Sherry) Marks, Adam (Chelsea) Fagin, Megan (Jordan) Remer and Lauren Fagin.  He was blessed with eight great-grandchildren, who brought him tremendous joy.

    Graveside services will be held at Arlington Memorial Park on Sunday, October 9, 2022 at 2:00PM. To honor Albert’s memory, donations can be made to Congregation Or VeShalom, Congregation Shearith Israel or a charity of your choosing. Arrangements by Dressler’s, 770-451-4999.

    I was so sad to hear about Albert's death. He was such a spirited, lovely person. I loved hearing his stories and seeing him and Tillie in synagogue. My sincere sympathy.

  • Jack & Fran Arogeti

    Dear Charlotte, Lenore, Toby, spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren; Like everyone who ever met your dear Dad, Fran and I have long thought the world of him. I'll especially miss him. The eulogies you so lovingly gave him at the Service yesterday were beyond moving. They were extraordinary. As was the love and dedication you each gave so abundantly to him throughout his life and especially these past 2 years. Maybe Steven summed it up most perfectly biblically, your dear Dad's work, his selfless labor of endless love, "was very good". possible level. So very many of us will always be grateful and proud to have your dear parents - of blessed memories - as our friends, and still as our life examples. God bless you all and thank you for sharing such poignant words with everyone yesterday. Extraordinary unforgettable stories about an extraordinary unforgettable gentle man.
