He was born in 1923 in Crimea’s Kapskor village from the beautiful  Yalıboyu coast, then his family was forced to leave his beloved homeland during the Second World War and emigrated to America via Turkey, then spent the rest of his life in New York.
He never broke away from Crimea, always extended a helping hand to his homeland, all the while helping build our Association building out of nothing, and instilling love for Crimea in all his children.
