Sgt. Maj. (res.) Boaz Abraham
Upon hearing about the invasion of terrorists into the kibbutz, Boaz immediately sprung into action as part of the community’s emergency response team and was killed defending his home.
Boaz was a farmer by trade and even learned Thai to better communicate with his employees. He is remembered for his warm smile, friendly demeanor and bringing happiness wherever he went, specifically by doling out nicknames.
“Boaz was a simple man, a civilian… who just wanted to defend his family and friends on the kibbutz.”
“If [anyone] needed anything they went to you. Advice, personal problems or anything else.”
His children wrote: “You made the day of everyone around you, always with a huge heart and smile for everyone, whether as a referee for youth soccer games, or when you would take everyone in your tractor around the fields you loved so much.”
He is survived by his wife, Daniela, and three children: Roni, Inbal and Michal.
