KANTOR, HOWARD  
KANTOR--Howard M.D. Howard Lionel Kantor M.D., passed away peacefully on August 13, 2015 surrounded by three generations of his loving family. He was 90. He was an accomplished doctor, athlete, world traveler and lover of the arts. He is survived by Gloria, his devoted and loving wife of 68 years; by his three children, Lauren, Karen and Jonathan; and by seven grandchildren, Rachel, Sara, Julia, David, Danielle, Allison and Benjamin. Born in Kansas City, MO on October 17, 1924, he was one of three children. He grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was an Eagle Scout and an exceptional student; he skipped two grades in school and graduated high school at the age of 15. He received a prestigious military scholarship to attend college at Rutgers University and then medical school at Columbia University in New York. After receiving his medical degree, he went on to become a pediatrician. He served in the military first as a private in the Army during the Second World War and then as a captain in the Air Force during the Korean War. Following his military service, Kantor entered private practice initially as a pediatrician in Syosset, NY, subsequently focusing solely on allergy-immunology in Huntington, NY. He served as the President of the Nassau Suffolk Allergy Society of New York in 1985-87. A talented practitioner, he had a loyal patient following that included multiple generations of families. With extraordinary dedication and enthusiasm, he continued his medical practice until the end of his life. He loved nature and the outdoors and spent many vacations throughout his life with his extended family hiking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. He was an exceptional athlete and was especially accomplished in tennis. He and his wife, during their long and loving marriage, together traveled to 60 countries. He was a sculptor, a painter, an accomplished gardener, and loved to dance. We remember him for his commitment to his profession, his loving devotion to his family and friends, and his ability to live life to the fullest.

KAPLAN, LLOYD  
KAPLAN--Lloyd, made us think and made us laugh - made us smile at his sense of wonder and made our eyes roll at his sense of humor. He amazed us with his intellect and amused us with his wackiness. He raised our spirits and raised the bar for everything we did. He had a noble mind and a noble heart and now our hearts are broken. "Good night sweet prince. And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest." Steve Alschuler and Hannah Arnold

KLEIN, JANICE  
KLEIN--Janice Hall, 93, died on Monday, August 24th of 2015. She was the daughter of the late Marjorie and Maurice Quilligan of Brooklyn, and the granddaughter of the late Matthew J. Hall and Leila J. Hall of Mamaroneck, NY. Janice was born on January 1st, 1922, and her mother always said that Janice was her "New Year's baby." A graduate of Bay Ridge High School in Brooklyn and of Hunter College (New York City), for ten years she was Reserve Director of Bozell & Jacobs Inc. (now Bozell Worldwide). Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, she had numerous articles and poems published in American and Canadian magazines. In recent years she published "Loving Language: A Child Embraces Her Life Through Words" and "Gestalt Graphology," a collection of papers by her late second husband, Felix Klein. In 1962 her marriage to Ralph Bottenus resulted in the birth of her daughter, Valerie H. Q. Bottenus, who was the light of her life. Four years after Ralph's death she married Felix Klein, a world renowned Austrian-born gestalt graphologist and founder of the National Society for Graphology. Janice studied and worked with him in his business, Manhattan Handwriting Consultant, which she carried on after his death in 1994. She was an encouraging and patient teacher who brought out the very best in her students. She later sold the business to a former student, Evy Tishelman Karambelas, who operates it under the name Felix Klein School of Graphology. Janice was herself the light of many people's lives. Her ebullient and generous spirit, her keen mind and razor-sharp intellect, and her love for and appreciation of beauty (and her desire to share it with others) made Janice an unforgettable presence. She cultivated and maintained legions of close friendships, many of which had begun in her youth and others in her senior years. A devoted correspondent, she was known for her newsy and beautifully handwritten letters and envelopes decorated with colorful stickers. She loved traveling and was particularly smitten with Venice; Janice was made an honorary member of one of her favorite organizations, Save Venice, when she was nearly 90. Her absence will leave an enormous hole in many hearts, but most of all, in the heart of her daughter Valerie, who adored her precious Buddha infinitely and will love her eternally. In addition to Valerie, she is survived by three stepsons (Thomas, of Portland, OR; Howard, of York, PA; and Peter, of Clifton, NJ) and three nieces (Dianne Ginsburg, of River Falls, WI; Jeannie Seitz, of Collins, IA; and Marjorie Vickery, of Sun City, AZ). A private wake will be held at 10am on Saturday, August 29th, at Coxe and Graziano Funeral Home in Mamaroneck, NY, followed by interment at Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, NY. A memorial service for Janice will be held in Manhattan on Saturday, September 12th.
