Asher Ben-Shabat January 17, 2020

Asher Ben-Shabat was born on March 3, 1960 in Morocco to Nissum and Mirium (Alfassi) Ben-Shabat.  His parents raised him in Israel from a young age.  After High School he served in the Israeli Defense Force for three years before emigrating to the United States in the early 80s.  Asher married Shari Levene in 1986 and they had three children together:  Matthew, Philip and Mauri.  They raised their children in the Dallas area while building their own business. Asher and Shari worked together in creating , Asher Interiors, a successful custom furniture workroom. With a strong work ethic and determination, they have become a staple in the Dallas Community for over 30 years.

Asher loved life and lived it to the fullest.   He did not allow his illness to stop him from enjoying the little things.  A local ranch was one of his favorite places to go with his family and horseback ride.

He was strong willed and his strength carried him through his battle with cancer.

On Wednesday, January 1, 2020, Asher Ben Shabat left this Earth.  He was preceded by his parents Nissum and Mirium (Alfassi) Ben-Shabat.

His life will continue to be remembered and honored by his wife, Shari; his children: Matthew, Philip and Mauri; many more relatives and close friends.

Please consider a donation in Asher’s memory to the family trust. The family plans to donate to Pancreatic Cancer Research.  Please contact Mauri Ben-Shabat for details at:  mauri.benshabat@gmail.com
