Howard Applebaum died Monday. He is survived by spouse Maryse, son Evan and many other family members, including his parents.
Shiva will be strictly private. The obituary notice indicated that in lieu of gifts or flowers, donations in Howard Applebaum’s memory may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
