May his soul Rest In Peace
Dr. Mouchawar delivered all of my mother’s 5 children from 1968-1982. She was so fond of him and his kindness. May God bless his family and his legacy.
It’s sad to me that you left out his first wife, Helga and their 4 boys Maurice, Alan, Larry & Marvin. One of his son’s preceded him in death. One of his son’s became an Olympic Water Polo Player and two of his son’s followed his medicine legacy.
Dr. Mouchawar preyed upon poor welfare families. Truth. In paramount/downey CA – maybe others according to a neighbor whose baby he delivered in 1979 – the pre natal visits always included a finger job that was his joy and not the patient’s and sometimes he suggested ethnic cleansing by abortion for black women. Such was life at Virginia Country Club in the 1970’s. Living the sad dream of immigrant wealth and lies. I am not a family member, just a journalist historian, and I really feel like his boys were just Wills and Harry’s while he built the career of his life on their backs as if their mother never existed.
