Abouchar laid to rest

Summit, N.J. – Services were held earlier this week for Richard Abouchar, retired president of J. Abouchar & Sons embellished towels who passed away Nov. 29.

Abouchar was a beloved figure in the industry, and was one of the last generations in a family business that stretched back over seven decades before it was sold.

He is survived by his wife Dorothy, children Allison and Keith, brother Edward, and grandchildren Justin and Ryan Cross.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to Poly Prep Country Day School, Brooklyn, N.Y. or Central Presbyterian Church in Summit.
