Roy Russell Raizen Passes Away at 87

RoyRaizenRoy Russel Raizen of Scarsdale passed way on Sunday November 12 at the age of 87. He was born in Brooklyn on October 1, 1930 to Patricia (nee Tolk) and Charles S. Raizen.

A 1948 graduate of the Salisbury School and 1952 graduate of Lafayette College, Raizaen served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Those of you who knew Roy know by his hats and tee- shirts that he was an avid sports fan -- the Giants, Yankees and Rangers were his teams. He was past President of Beach Point Club in Mamaroneck, NY and the past President and Chairman of the Board of the Mid- Westchester JCC. He began his career working at Transogram Toy Company and later became a co-owner of Effanbee Doll Corp, a successful maker of fine dolls.

His wife of 46 years, Nancy, predeceased him in 2004. Raizen's two children, David and Jill, live in Scarsdale today and are both prominent members of the community and committed volunteers. David Raizen is President of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and Jill Serling heads up the Scarsdale Adult School.

Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 15 at 9:45 am at Temple Israel of New Rochelle, 1000 Pinebrook Boulevard.
