Tomer Segev, 30, from Ra’anana, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

He was initially labeled as a missing person until his body was found on October 9, and he was buried the following day.

Segev is survived by his parents, Gidon and Ayelet, siblings Almog and Inbar, his stepmother Sigal, and stepsiblings Idan and Roni.

“Our Tomeriko was a child of love, a free spirit. His whole life, he distanced himself from labels and lived the way he wanted to live. He always helped everyone,” wrote Sigal in a eulogy published by Israeli news outlet Ynet.

She added that Segev had “mesmerizing blue eyes — the man broke quite a few hearts.”

Sigal also said that her stepson gave excellent culinary advice, including suggesting that she add pine nuts to burgers.

However, according to Army Radio, he was less inclined to use his culinary skills on himself. When asked to choose a birthday cake, he replied, “protein cake and schnitzel cake” — according to his “strict diet.”

Segev’s friend and former colleague Madeline Schusterman‎‏ eulogized him on a memorial website, also mentioning his piercing eyes.

“You had the most beautiful, smiling, expressive eyes,” she wrote. “You had a special twinkle in your eye. You had a special presence. You were special to me and you are unforgettable. I will always remember you.”
