Dec. 19, 1957 - Nov. 18, 2011 HARRAH Memorial services will be held at the Temple B'nai Israel, 4901 N. Penn Ave., Sunday December 4, 2011 at 2:00 pm. Conducted by Rabbi Barry Cohen. Gabe was born in Haifa, Israel. He came to America with his parents in 1967. They settled in Spartanburg, SC. Gabe attended Georgia Tech and got his Electrical Engineering degree. He worked as the Director of Operations of the Checkerboard Cafe and Bakery the family business. Later in life he began working in the Bio Medical Engineering field. He was on a team of engineers and surgeons developing the next generation heart pump. Although he didn't get to see it through to fruition he did lay the groundwork that will save many lives for years to come. What a legacy he left behind for his children. Gabe was preceded in death by his parents Moshe and Magda Ehrenstein., also family members too numerous to count at the hand of Adolph Hitler. He is survived by his wife Lori Booth-Ehrenstein and her children Nathan and Lauren Booth from the late Tom Booth, and in-laws James and Gayle Spencer of Harrah, OK and step-daughter Dawn Stephens and granddaughter Morgaine from S.C. He is also survived by his Israeli family. A sister Hagit and husband Yoav Seff, niece Efrat and husband Ilan Zohar, nephew Amit and wife Limor Seff and their 2 daughters and 1 son. Gabe was a kind, loving and brilliant man with a laugh heard around the world and a smile unlike anyone. Your smile will forever warm our hearts. A special thanks to the Baptist Integris Advanced Cardiac Care LVAD Team. Thank you for giving us the "gift" of life called the LVAD. We got a bonus and it was 18 months of extra time together. Gabe dedicated the rest of his life to meeting, educating, encouraging and comforting patients with CHF considering getting the LVAD. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send any donation to the Gabe Ehrenstein Memorial Fund at any FNB of MWC location or send directly to: PO Box 811, Harrah, OK 73045.
