Eisenstein, Dr. Warren Dr. Warren Eisenstein of Richardson, TX passed away February 27, 2014 at the age of 61. Born on April 25, 1952 in Brooklyn, N.Y. to parents Lenny and Rivka Eisenstein, Warren was and always will be a true New Yorker, or more specifically a true Sea Gater. Warren had a passion for food, wine, travel, music, his friends and his patients. No one could cook a meal, play the blues or perform an eye exam like he could. Warren left Brooklyn at the age of 19 to join the rock band in Topeka that would eventually become the group Kansas. He left the group, making good on a promise to his parents that he would pursue music for just one year then continue his education. He graduated from the University of Kansas, then went on to attend the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, where he earned his Doctorate of Optometry and met his bride-to-be, Linda. After graduation, Warren and Linda moved to Dallas where he began a long and rewarding career as an optometrist, practicing in Richardson. He will always be remembered by his friends as one of the most creative and funniest people ever. His wit and ability to mimic anyone was amazing. He could also play a guitar and sing like few others could. On most weekends, He could be found jamming in Dallas area clubs until his illness prevented him from doing so. He was also the most disciplined, responsible and loyal person you could ever meet. He was never late for an appointment or a meeting in his entire life. Warren leaves behind countless New York and Dallas friends and patients. He is survived by his loving wife Linda Eisenstein, brother Benjamin of Long Island, NY and his lifelong friends and soul mates: Dr. Michael Buchholtz (NY), Jeffrey Epstein (NY), Terry Kafka (Dallas), Jerry Ruoti (NY) and Joseph Zucca (NY). Also surviving Warren are his dedicated staff at Contact/Eyewear, his Dallas culinary & wine friends and current and former members of the band Kansas. Lastly, a special thanks to Warren's caretaker, Arnie Mercado. A memorial service will be held for Warren on Sunday, March 9th from 12 pm - 1:30 pm at the Jewish Community Center - 7900 Northaven Rd., Dallas (214-739-2737). All friends, patients and fellow musicians are encouraged to attend. Warren will also be remembered in a New York memorial service in late March, details to be announced.
