HAIFA, ISRAEL – Kenneth “Kiev” Resnick died in Haifa, Israel, on Nov. 13 after a short illness. He will be remembered as a welcoming, warm and caring man. He was the husband of the late Harriet “Chaya” (Becker) Resnick.
He was born in Providence, a son of Ida (Teverow) and Israel Resnick. Kenneth graduated from Hope High School, served in the Merchant Marine and the U.S. Navy and graduated from the University of Rhode Island.
A devout Zionist, Kenneth spent several years in Israel in the 1950s, where he and Chaya met while volunteering on a kibbutz. They returned to the U.S., married and started a family in Providence.
In 1972, they made aliyah with their three children and settled in Haifa, where Kenneth worked for Industries Trading, Ltd. He is survived by his daughters, Shira Resnick and Tamra Erez (Hezi) of Haifa, and his son Murray (Nitzan) of Sharon, Massachusetts.
