LASKIN--Meyer. In grief and love, the Laskin family remembers Meyer Laskin, who died on November 30, 2010, at the age of 84. A child of immigrants, Meyer lived out an American success story, forging an impressive business career. Associates valued his intelligence and integrity. To friends, he embodied the ideal of an ethical, caring life. For his wife of 63 years, Leona, he was a lifetime companion in all the adventures of marriage. For his four sons - Robert, Daniel, David, and Jonathan - he was the Dad who read to them, coached their teams, skied and hiked with them, imparted a love of the Adirondack Mountains, gave them wise advise, and showed them, by example, that success in life is measured by morals, not money. His seven grandchildren discovered, with their Papa, the tang of a mountain morning, the glory of a summit view, and the meaning of the word mensch. The family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Adirondack Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, Adirondack Land Trust, PO Box 65, Keene Valley, NY 12943; or to Penn Hospice at Rittenhouse, 1800 Lombard Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19146.
