Armin G. Biller



Armin Gerald Biller, beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away peacefully on August 12, 2017, surrounded by family in Truro,MA. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1928, he was the son of the late Dr. Jack and Mollie Biller and brother of  Frances Belinky and the late Judd Biller. While attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison where he graduated with a teachers certificate in English, he met the love of his life — a gem of a woman from El Salvador, adored by all who met her — Martita Freund. They were married in 1953 in San Salvador, El Salvador where they lived until the 1980’s when the civil war forced them to leave the country. Without any prior knowledge of Spanish, Armin joined his two brothers-in-law, Ernesto and Roberto Freund, in a family business. Armin eventually helped to create the first department store chain in El Salvador. He and Martita lived a beautiful life in El Salvador with their three children. Martita sadly passed away in 1990. Their love remained a vital source of life for Armin. He remained a widower until his death. He is survived by his three children: Michael Biller and his partner Nancy Anderson of Seattle Washington, Marga Biller of Boston, and Carolina and her husband Sandy Bloomberg of Brookline. His Grand children: Josh Bloomberg and his wife Julie Casper, Mikaela Bloomberg, Mia Raquel Rosenberg, Alex Biller, Nicholas Biller and Madeleine Biller. Armin was joyfully awaiting the birth of his first great-grandchild in October.The funeral will be on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 11:30am at Mishkan Tefila Memorial Park, 2690 Centre Street,West Roxbury.  The family will sit Shiva on Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm at the home of Carolina and Sandy Bloomberg.

Biller Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, where Armin was a member of the Board of Trustees, P.O.Box 849168,Boston, MA 02284. Armin possessed the most gentle spirit — a true heart of gold — and is remembered every day as kind, generous, suave, outgoing, creative, and of course, with a glass of Chivas Regal in his hand, as he engaged in thoughtful conversations with his family.
