2.4 Who are the other members of his family? (Isaac Asimov)

He was the son of Judah Asimov (1896-1969) and Anna Rachel Berman Asimov
(1895-1973), who were married in 1918. Asimov was named Isaac after his
mother's father, Isaac Berman. He has a sister Marcia (born Manya in
1922) and a brother Stanley (1929-1995).

His father saved the money earned from several jobs during his first three
years in the U.S. and bought a candy store in Brooklyn, which his parents
ran for the next forty or so years.

Marcia married Nicholas Repanes in 1955 and has two sons, Larry and Richard.

Stan became a journalist and rose to vice president in charge of editorial
administration for Newsday. Stan died of leukemia on August 16, 1995. He
and his wife Ruth were the parents of Eric and Nanette, both journalists,
and Daniel, a mathematician. Dan Asimov may be found on the net, but does
NOT wish to be bothered with inquiries about Isaac, so please leave him
alone.
