Eliyahu Meir Ballabon was a beloved member of the Viznitz Chassidic community in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, N.Y., before his passing on April 22 as a result of COVID-19.

He was a well-known figure in the neighborhood as the son of Rabbi Yaakov Ballabon, a beloved schoolteacher in the Satmar yeshivah who educated generations of local residents.

Ballabon himself worked in Goldberg’s Freshmarket, a familiar face behind the counter for many years.

Predeceased by a son, he is survived by his wife and three children.
