Virginia Beach —Dr. Isaac Gabriel Doron passed away January 7, 2019 at the age of 88.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Margalith, his three sons Yoav, Ronen, and Sagie and his five grandchildren, Max, Lindsay, Justin, Lauren and Jacob, as well as his two older sisters, Hannah and Aliza.

Isaac was a devoted husband, amazing father, inspirational grandfather, friend to all, and exceptional pediatrician to thousands of patients during his 56-year medical career.

He loved his family, his country, and a good game of backgammon. Isaac was kind, thoughtful, welcoming and one of the most humble people you’ll ever meet despite his many accomplishments like becoming a physician by the age of 23 and serving for five years in the Israeli Defense Forces.

Those who knew him were entertained by his one-liners and touched by his stories. Born in Alexandria, Egypt on January 7, 1931 during a difficult time, he made his alliyah to Israel in 1957 and moved to America in 1974, a place he called home for half his life.

The world lost a special person who managed to impact everyone who was fortunate to know him. If you took a minute to listen to him speak, you would walk away with volumes of knowledge and wisdom.
