Not sure what to say?

Allan was my first cousin, but in the 1960s and 1970s when I lived in Manhattan he was like a brother, even attending my sister's funeral in the midwest to offer moral support. He introduced me to such NYC landmarks as Barney Greengrass (borscht with fresh cream), Zabar's (whitefish, sable, and sturgeon), and Peter Luger's, whose steak sauce I still use. I think I last saw him at a family reunion a quarter-century ago, but I shall miss him nonetheless.

Worked with Allan on airports for many years from the mid 60's.
Always a gentleman and knowledgeable Airports man.
Rest in Peace Allan

Allan has been a client since 1986 but more important a dear friend. We shared common interests as professionals and the biggest thing, we both wear hats. He gave me a few great hats over the years.
I will miss him. My deepest sympathies to Mary and the entire family.

Allan/PopPop/Father was a Great Man, of incredible professional career success, and, patriarch of an amazing family&circle of close friends. He Loved&Cherished "The Light of His Life", wife, MaryShapiro, and his family to the fullest extent. This was his mantra, as he Loved&Respected, as well, everyone in his life, whether that person was family, long time friend/colleague, or, stranger he met 1x in passing only. He treated everyone as if they were the most important...

Allan was a dear friend whom I had the pleasure of knowing and working with for nearly 30 years. A mentor with a gentle wit and kind heart, he will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to his family, but I know we will all see Allan again in a better place.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Allan for many years. He was
widely known in architecture and engineering and highly regarded. He will be
missed. Rest In Peace my friend,
Don Weisstuch
