Asher Benator was born in Atlanta in 1931. His father, Isaac Benatar (the spelling was later changed to Benator) emigrated from the Isle of Rhodes in 1914. He was forced to return to Europe because of an eye infection and stayed in France until the end of WWI, when he immigrated again, to Atlanta. Asher's father was in the shoe repair business and eventually owned two shops. The family was active in Or VeShalom Congregation. As a boy Asher became involved in boxing and eventually became a Golden Gloves champion. Asher attended Oglethorpe University for one year, and graduated from the Atlanta Division of the University of Georgia. Following graduation he entered into the grocery trade. In 1953, Isaac married Grace Levy. He later became a developer in Atlanta.
