Obituary: Allan Brezel

Allan Brezel, 64, Marietta, died Nov. 17, 2018.

Allan Brezel, 64, Marietta, died Nov. 17, 2018. Allan was a caring man who loved his family with all of his heart. Allan was originally from Queens, N.Y., the son of two Holocaust survivors who grew up helping his parents run their family-owned clothing store on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Allan and his wife, Susan, relocated to the Atlanta area, where he attended Emory University, earning a master’s degree in accounting. In Atlanta, he and Susan put down roots and made friends who became family.

The three children that Allan and Susan raised together were his greatest loves. Allan enjoyed playing golf, watching the stock market, taking long walks along the Chattahoochee River, and spending as much time as possible with his three granddaughters who called him ‘Pop-Pop.’  Allan was well-known among his friends and family for being a good listener and giving sound advice. Allan made a positive impact on everyone he met, and the world will be a little darker without his warm hugs and bright smile.

He is survived by his wife, Susan Brezel; daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Matthew Kulkin; son and future daughter-in-law, Jonathan Brezel and Michaela Hankinson; daughter and son-in-law, Jordan and Michael Levene; brother and sister-in-law, Dr. Ted and Claire Brezel; brother and sister-in-law, Dr. Mitchell and Lisa Brezel; grandchildren: Ava, Julia and Elise.
