Rosy pinchable cheeks, custom made suits, a hairstyle that only got better when driving his convertible, a serious talent for tickling his grandchildren, an unrivaled love for his children and their spouses, and a beautiful 45-year love affair with his wife, Sharon.

He will be celebrated and mourned by his daughter, Jory (and her fiancee Greg), his son - Hayes (with his wife Jennifer and their children Shoshana and Ethan), his mother - Lee (wife to the late Earl Steinberg), and his brother - Ricky (his wife Carole and their children Jennifer and Jason).
