From Dyer-Lake Funeral Home:

Adriel Irmiah Preger, 40, of Mansfield, formerly of Easton, passed away on Friday, January 24, 2014 at Beth Isreal Deaconess Hospital in Boston. He was the son of Dario R. Preger and the late Mirta G. (Rendler) Preger and step-son of Nancy L. Brush.

Born in Israel on December 26, 1973, he moved to the United States with his parents at the age of eight.

Adriel studied at The New England Conservatory of Music and Berklee College of Music.

He began teaching and performing professionally at age 16 and then began his own entertainment business centering on live music and DJ services by age 18.

Adriel was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in 2000 which caused partial loss of hand movement. He then turned to the steel guitar. In turn he started Adriel Azure’s Dream Indigo Orchestra, which created original material for film, games and orchestral performances.

In 2010, Mack the service dog entered his life and became a loyal companion. Black and white in color, Mack was always at Adriel’s side in his “tuxedo” .

Adriel enjoyed life and truly loved to spread joy throught entertainment and share his appreciation of music. He was active in many, many things that were near and dear to his heart, including motivational speaking and advocacy for disabled children, adults and service animal awareness.

In addition to his father and step-mother, Adriel is survived by his step-sister: Phoebe S. Brush of North Carolina; his paternal grandmother: Rebeca (Nemirovski) Preger of Brookline; two aunts: Annie Abas of Israel and Gloria Zacepitzky of Brookline; a cousin: Ari Zacepitzky of Brookline. He also leaves many cousins and other family members in Israel.
