Marvin Kamensky, 84, beloved husband and best friend of Judy nee Ellis for 62 wonderful years; loving father of Todd, Rob, Dan and the late Michael; loving father-in-law to Debbie and Amy and former daughter-in-law Debbie Zide; cherished Papa of Alexis, Bari, Ari, Becca, Megan, Jenna, and Mia; devoted son of the late Fannie and Frank; dear brother of Jerrold (Gail) and the late Paul (Jill); treasured uncle, cousin and friend of many.

His most cherished moments were those spent with his adoring family. He married the love of his life, his best friend and sweetheart with whom he created a home and family that always came first. He loved traveling and taking father-son trips around the world.

An innovator, expert and celebrated attorney with a career spanning more than five decades, he founded Kamensky and Rubinstein which emerged as one of Chicago’s top law firms in the areas of health care and taxation. He took pride in his participation in the prosecution of Chicago crime syndicate boss Rocco Pranno as an IRS Special Agent in the late 1960s where he received a commendation by the U.S. Attorney for excellent performance and outstanding ability. He was a founder, board member, contributor and consultant to many civic and professional organizations and publications including the Children Cares Foundation, the Journal of Medical Economics, the Journal of Taxation, “The Group”, The Young Men’s Jewish Council (now Jewish Council for Youth Services), and the American Bar Association. He took an active role in local politics and the arts. He initially worked on the campaign of Congressman Samuel H. Young in the early 70s and later counted Hon. Young as counsel at Kamensky and Rubinstein. In 1975, he was elected to the School District 31 School Board and served on the Board of Trustees of his local synagogue Congregation Beth Shalom. He took great interest in the arts as a theater producer, and as an art and stamp collector. The family is deeply appreciative of the loving and respectful care provided by John, Presley and Bevin.
