GUESTS OF HONOR

MRS. HELAINE HELLER
MR. ISAAC ``IKE`` HELLER of blessed memory

Isaac (Ike) Heller was born in Ellenville, NY, in 1926. After serving in the Navy during WWII, he bought some Army surplusradio parts and built the Remco Toy Company, based in Newark and later Harrison.

In 1965, Ike founded Heller Industrial Parks, Inc., and served as board chair and CEO until his passing in 2015.

Ike met his wife, Helaine, when she was working at her father’s company, which sold boxes to Remco. They married in 1953. Ike built the business while Helaine managed the daily work of caring for their four daughters, Audrey, Laurie, Hollie, and Hillary.

Their family grew to include ten grandchildren and four great-
grandchildren.

The Hellers have generously supported Jewish causes in the US and in Israel, including a donation that enabled the Torah Center to purchase its current property.

Dr. Andrew Andonov was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1971. Soon after he moved to Florida.
