Arnold Hirsch 1935 - 2021

Arnold J. Hirsch passed away peacefully on the morning of November 18, 2021. Arnold was born in the Bronx, NY, oldest son of Lionel and Sarah (Sally) Hirsch.
He had a passion for life with an entrepreneurial spirit. Owning businesses in the Garment Industry and the Restaurant Industry, where he worked with his son. He also owned a Mobile Phone Store, when that business was in its infancy, definitely a bit of a pioneer!
He will be remembered for being generous in both spirit and pocket, as well as his affable nature and quick wit.

He is survived by Sonia (Lehrer) , his wife of 64 years. Together they moved to Yonkers where they raised two wonderful children. Jeffrey, his “Sonny Boy,” (Janice), and Mindy. He was a loving grandfather to Lee Andrew, Katie, and Rachel. Arnold also leaves behind his younger brother Charles (Haydee) as well as several wonderful nieces and nephews

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved Grandson Lee Andrew (2015)

The family will be sitting Shiva Monday (11/21), Tuesday, and Wednesday, 12PM – 8PM at Arnold’s home.

    So sorry to hear this sad news. Thinking of you all. Arnold was always so nice to me. I will never forget how we all squeezed into one car to go down to the coffee shop. I bought my first cell phone from him. I hope you find comfort in all the loving memories. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Love, Renee
