Abraham 'Abe' Kaner, 91, died Saturday, Feb. 27, 1999, at Nopeming Nursing Home in Duluth. He was born in Superior and was a lifelong resident of the Twin Ports area.


Surviving are two sisters, Harriet Davis, Superior, and Lea Charniss of Minneapolis.


He was preceded in death by his pioneering parents, Rochal and Samuel H. Kaner, sisters, Bess Pomush and Jeanne Kaner, and three brothers.


He and his brothers, Henry, Isadore and were the original suppliers of Sundry Products to the Lake Superior freight carriers. 'The Boys,' as they were called, started out carrying large, canvas pack-sacks on their shoulders and climbed up ladders to the ships. They graduated to the "bum boats' and continued to supply the lake carriers until their retirement. One of the boats that Abe owned once caught on fire, but he was able to jump ashore after receiving some life-threatening burns. Mr. Kaner's Duluth real estate enterprise and charitable contributions were noteworthy. He was a life member of the Superior Hebrew Brotherhood Congregation.


A graveside service was held at 1 p.m. Monday in the Superior Hebrew Cemetery with Rabbi Shlomo Grafstein of Adas Israel Temple in Duluth officiating.


In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of the donor's choice.


Arrangements were handled by Downs Funeral Home.
