Dr. Ira P. Woletsky (born March 11th, 1954 to Rose and Chuck), passed away on November 9th, 2023. Ira loved his family, and is survived by his beloved wife Karen, children Mark, Britlyn (husband, TJ), Alex (husband, Chris) and Jack, sister Lisa (husband, Tom), predeceased by sister Helene (Soren). Also survived by nieces Catrina and Taylor, grand-nephew Dane. Lastly, his utmost pride, his grandchildren - Tenley, Brooks, Jack, and Teddy. As evidenced by his long-standing pediatric practice, Ira found joy in his patients’ smiling faces, or the ability to turn their frowns into smiles. Lab-coat off, he loved to entertain family, be surrounded by his most adored friends, and be in the presence of his grandchildren. Not to be forgotten, a long day of golf at SoHo, ending with a quiet cocktail with Karen, of course. Ira will be sorely missed, but we’ll find comfort in knowing that he is playing his best round of golf, with a scotch in hand.
