Isaac Irving Senor

Isaac Irving Senor, 86, died April 1, 2011.

Mr. Senor was born in Salonika, Greece. When he was 16, the Nazis took the town’s young men to build a rail line and sent the rest of the Jewish population to concentration camps. He spent time in five different camps doing hard labor. Mr. Senor was liberated from Dachau on May 5, 1945, but the rest of his family did not survive. He met his wife on the day of liberation. They settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1949. Mr. Senor was a design supervisor with Leather Specialty Company. When he retired, they moved to Tucson. Mr. Senor spoke at schools about his experiences in the Holocaust, and earned an associate of science degree from Pima Community College.

Mr. Senor was preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Rachel. Survivors include his daughters, Lynne (Seymour) Farbman of Baltimore, Md., Molly (Mel Cohen) Senor and Doris Senor (Brad) Woltman, both of Tucson; and five grandchildren.

Graveside services were held in the B’nai B’rith section of Evergreen Cemetery.
