Paul Weissman   November 13, 1929- July 9, 2019

Beloved husband, cherished father, adored grandfather and devoted friend, Paul Weissman died Tuesday morning July 9, 2019 after a long illness. Paul was 89, born in Brooklyn, lived in the Bronx, Yonkers and Somers, NY. He graduated from City College in 1950 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, the first in his family to attend college. He was a Second Lieutenant in the army during the Korean War. Paul retired as the Executive Vice President of James G. Hardy & Co., Inc., where he managed a national sales force that sold linens to hotels and restaurants. He was a competitive bridge player, a daily crossword puzzler and an avid fan of the Yankees and the UConn Huskies Women’s Basketball team. In addition to his fierce intellect, he was exceptionally kind and loving. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Leila and his children Diane and Mark Weingarten, Larry and Liz Weissman and Janet and Marc Pfeffer, and his grandchildren, Alex Weissman, Jill and Zach Stein, Adam Weissman, Lisa Weingarten, Elliana Pfeffer and Cole Pfeffer, all of whom gave him his greatest joy in life. May he rest in peace.
