Abe was a veteran of WWII, President of Texas Beverage Association and involved with the Retina Foundation. On his 50th birthday, Abe founded Union Container Corp. which he later merged with Alco Standard Corporation.
After retirement in 1986, he volunteered with SCORE and became Chairman of the Houston chapter, receiving many awards and certificates of appreciation for his service, which continued well into his 90s. Truly an amazing man, always caring and considerate of others.
Special thanks to all his employees and associates who helped him to achieve so much in his lifetime; as well as Freda Burton, all Abe's friends and personnel at the Village of Meyerland, and each and every one of the special people who enabled him to reach his final goal of attaining 100 years.
