David Lester Weinstein Obituary
WEINSTEIN David Lester Weinstein, 85, son of Leo and Sara Weinstein, died May 29, 2014 at Hadlow Center for Caring Hospice in Jacksonville, FL. He was a veteran of the Korean War. He worked for his father at Forest Pharmacy at Forest and Myrtle Ave. in Jacksonville, which he took over and expanded when his father was no longer able to work. He served the local community in the pharmacy until 1994, when he sold it. David was born January 31, 1929 in Long Island, NY, but moved to Jacksonville before he was 10, where he lived for the rest of his life. He attended University of Florida. In his youth, he was active in B'nai Brith. He was an AZA advisor for many years and was named their Man of the Year in 1954. In recent years, he was a weekly volunteer at L'Arche Harbor House, a home for developmentally disabled adults. His beloved son, Scott Weinstein, predeceased David in 1990 in a sudden accident. Scott graduated from University of Cincinnati Pharmacy School and worked as a pharmacist in the family business until his death. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Margie, his daughter Julie Weinmann, her husband, Bobby Weinmann, and his granddaughter and best friend, Shani Weinmann. David had a loving extended family of nieces and nephews: David and Darlene Albright, Marli Albright, Steven and Ellyn Chapel of Virginia Beach, Mark and Annette Stadler of Chicago, and Frani and Adrian Heilman and family. He also leaves behind close friends among the residents of L'Arche Harbor House, in particular Robert McCormick. David was laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery in the Etz Chaim section on May 30. David's long-time friend, Rabbi Yehuda Boroosan of Atlanta presided. Donations may be made to Hadlow Center for Caring, River Garden, or the Wounded Warrior Project.
