In Memory of
April 13, 1928 - September 16, 2017
Age 89, passed away on September 16, 2017 in Boynton Beach, FL. He was born on April 13, 1928 in Sterdyn, Poland and came to St. Louis as an Infant, after traveling to New York on the Aquatania on June 30, 1928. He married Audrey (Leaf) on Oct 15, 1950, had two children, Danny and Alan, and they had over 37 years of happiness together until her passing. He was fortunate to spend the last 19 years in a happy and loving relationship with Lorraine Kandel in Florida, where he enjoyed playing cards and bringing happiness to everyone he met there. He worked as a Retail Manager and was in Real Estate sales but his true passion was working as an Optician, helping people to see better at Barnes Hospital and at his sons’ Optometry practice. Even 20 years past his retirement, patients come in and miss his special touch. He is survived by his loving partner Lorraine Kandel, sons Danny and Alan (Jamie), Grandchildren Jeffrey, Bradley and Adi and many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered by all as a wise problem solver and a kind and gentle man who brightened the lives of everyone he encountered.
