Boruch Dayan Ho’emes: Marvin Fruchter, 61, OBM

With great sadness and pain we inform you of the untimely death of Marvin Fruchter, a part-owner of Apple Drugs on Kingston Avenue and beloved member of the Crown Heights community, though he lived in Plainview, NY. He was 61 years old.

Marvin’s passing comes a month after a devastating accident, which resulted in him falling into a coma from which he never awoke. He passed away at 2:00am this morning at the Nassau University Medical Center.

“Marvin was a kind, gentle and caring individual who gave a lot of Tzedaka; just a wonderful person,” a visibly heartbroken Shloime Gutleizer, Marvin’s Partner at Apple Drugs for the past 24 years, told

He is survived by his wife, Rita, and two children: Fred, 27, and Scott, 24.

The Levaya will take place tomorrow, September 19th, 11:00am, at Gutterman’s Funeral Chapel, 8000 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury, Long Island, NY.

    I am extremely Heartbroken. Marvin indeed was a kind person with great middos. He always cared about his community an his workers and tried everything possible to give each person his devoted attention. He cared about putting his fellow Jews first and did not stop at anything to get prescriptions ordered, dosages changed, and was commited to work personally on each persons insurance coverage to attend to their medical needs. Our prayers are with the family and friends. We want Moshchiach now! We love you Marvin!

    Marvin never raised his voice, and treated every person with respect. My heart is broken that such a terrible thing could happen to such a beautiful person.
