As a regular at the Deli, although you weren’t a man of many words, I will always remember the many political discussions I had on Saturday morning, with son and Mom, and occasionally, seeing you, at first in the corner of my eye and then when I turned toward you, your bright smile in response to the often “tirade” I would be having.....indeed, my fond memories were when I got you to chuckle!
You will be missed dearly; I looked forward to seeing you in the back, stirring up the scrambled eggs and adding them to the hot grill, with me being confused between fried and scrambled eggs for the bagel.
Condolences to the family, from me and my wife Gerri.

Thank you for all the delicious sandwiches you made me at the deli. I’m thankful when I was a kid
you taught me how to ride a bike and when I was older taught me how to play the guitar. It was fun
when we played the songs you taught me on our guitars. You will always remain in my heart and will be greatly missed.
