Loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was known as a man who always wanted to help others. From his countless hours, days and years of service to the Boy Scouts in Westchester county where he was awarded the Silver Beaver for his dedication. When his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s he chose to dedicate his time to the Alzheimer’s Association to help others cope with the challenges of the unrelenting impact of the disease on those who provide support.
He was known for his cheerful demeanor and ability to make everyone smile.
He and his family were members of the Hebrew Institute of White Plains. It was there that they learned their Jewish values and traditions that they still cherish today.
He is predeceased by his wife, Norma. He is survived by his son Paul and his wife Gretchen, and his grandsons Zachary and Noah. His daughter Miriam and her wife Becky. His brother Adolph. His close companion, Elaine Brownstein.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations either to the Alzheimer’s Association or the Boy Scouts of America.
