Family-Placed Obituary

SIDNEY ROSENTHAL Peacefully passed away December 17, 2009 in Ft. Lauderdale following a lengthy illness. He was born in Brooklyn, NY, September 29, 1916. He is survived by his wife, Judith Rosenthal; sister, Frances Malkin; son, Steven and his wife, Andrea Bayer Rosenthal; daughter, Lisa and her husband, David Martin; stepchildren, Sheila Cesare, Carol and John Mazzucco and Donald Adamek. He was beloved by his grandchildren, Rochelle, Adam and Tori Rosenthal, Alex and Kyle Martin, Kate and Alyssa Mazzucco and Brian Adamek along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. "Pops" could best be described as gregarious. He had friends from coast to coast as he helped relocate families throughout the country as a pioneer in the moving industry. He was a great story teller, drawing on experiences that began with his roots in Brooklyn, with horse drawn moving vans to driving cross country pre - Interstate Highways. In many ways he was an historian of the country, logging millions of miles for over 50 years, participating in the evolution of the transportation explosion of the 20th Century. "Sid" moved hundreds of families from New York to Florida beginning in the 1930's. Although home for Sid could be anywhere he parked his truck, he grew up in Brooklyn, lived in South Florida for many years before settling down with Judy in Wolcott, CT. After retirement, they returned to Inverrary, FL to live out their golden years, but he never outgrew Brooklyn. He was a lifetime member of Teamsters Local 671. Memorial Services will be held Sunday afternoon at 3 PM at the Star of David Memorial Gardens, 7701 Bailey Rd, North Lauderdale, FL. Contributions can be made to Vitas Innovative Hospice Care, 5420 NW 33rd Ave., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309 To express condolences and/or make donations Visit PalmBeachPost.com/obituaries
