Sam Mislow passed away unexpectedly July 10, 2020.

Sam Mislow, 78, of Atlanta, passed away unexpectedly July 10, 2020. A native Atlantan, he graduated Henry Grady High School and was a proud Grady Knight for life.

He was a loving, compassionate, kind, big-hearted soul, and a gregarious mensch. To sum him up in one word, it would be “happy.” He always had a smile to share that lit up any room. He had a long career in electronic security business sales, and upon retirement worked at Dressler’s Funeral Care, where he enjoyed comforting others in their greatest time of need.

He was proud of his Judaism and loved honoring and celebrating its traditions. He proudly served in the United States Army in the 1960s and was stationed in Korea. He loved all his family dearly. He is survived by his wife of 52 years Sandra; his children Julie and David Abes of Atlanta, and Sandy and Brad Mislow of Bronx, N.Y.; four grandchildren Amanda Abes, Mitchell Abes, Benjamin Mislow and Annie Mislow. He also is survived by sister Celia Topper of Atlanta; mother-in-law Ricky Sacks of Memphis, Tenn.; and numerous friends who will miss him forever.

Donations in his memory can be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Georgia chapter, 3525 Piedmont Road N.E., Atlanta, GA. 30305, or to Temple Sinai, Kesher Fund or Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund.

May he rest in peace and be comforted by the mourners in Zion and Jerusalem. Arrangements by Dressler’s Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
