Moshe Feder, 64, was killed on his way to work when a Kornet anti-tank guided missile struck a car near the Gaza border between the communities of Yad Mordechai and Sderot on Sunday. 

He was mortally wounded when he was evacuated to the Barzilai Hospital, and later pronounced dead. 
"He liked two things: this job and vacation. It's amazing that he worked at the age of 68, still on ladders and roofs," a friend of Feder's from work said to Ynet. Feder was the head roofer at Erez Thermoplastic Products. In fact, Feder and his wife Iris Eden had just returned from a two-week vacation in Guatemala.

"This was the second love of my life," Eden said Sunday, according to Ynet. "He supported me in difficult moments, always there when I needed him. Our children were friends and we were all one big family."


"He was a kind man, generous, a friend and a beloved role model and father. This is a great tragedy."


As Eden mentioned, Feder was not her first love, she had experienced tragedy before. Her first husband, Major Yishai Eden, died along with 72 other soldiers in a helicopter crash in the north's Hula Valley, on February 2, 1997, according to Ynet. 


Feder leaves behind two children Amit (35) and Nimrod (34), Ynet reported. 


"When we heard the name on television, we saw his car and realized that it was Moshe our neighbor," said one of the neighbors to Ynet. "This is a man who was an angel. Quiet, pleasant, and always ready to help."
