Arnold Leon Remer

November 8, 1936 ~ July 6, 2022 (age 85)


Arnold L. Remer, 85, passed away in Columbus on July 6, 2022. Arnie was a lifelong Toledoan, and a graduate of Scott High School, Ohio University, and Syracuse University. In his career, Arnie was a talented commercial artist and art director. He was especially gifted as a calligrapher, both in English and Hebrew, creating countless works of beautiful Judaica that he coined "Hebgraphics." He was a true mensch, devoted member and daily minyan participant at Congregation B'nai Israel, where he often chanted Torah and Haftarah. He was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Minnie Remer; and his younger brother, Murray Remer. He was extremely dedicated to his family, and was often seen wearing one of several grandpa-themed sweatshirts.

He is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 63 years, Marlene; and children, Todd (Julie) Remer, Larry (Kathryn) Remer and Beth (Edson) Madis; as well as seven grandchildren, Philip, Isabel and Samantha Remer, Elliot and Emily Remer, and Erick and Ryan Madis. He is also survived by sisters-and-brother-in law, Jo Ann Remer, Bobbye and Dave Shall; many nieces; nephews; and friends.
