Obituary

SCHWARTZ--Sy, 88, died at home on September 30, surrounded by family. Born in 1923, he was a World War II veteran, visionary real estate developer, environmental champion, and, later, founder of the Common Sense Fund (www.commonsensefund.org). Married for 48 years to his sweetheart Sybil Davidson; then the loving companion for 15 years to the remarkable Judith Greene. He leaves three devoted children and their spouses, and nine grandchildren. Sy had an independent and creative mind; he could make you rethink your position on settled questions. He was a lover of Bach, a walker, and an advocate for the common man. He understood that he was a fortunate man. A memorial service will be held on October 9 at a location to be determined. Contact [email protected] for information. Donations in Sy's memory can be made to thehighline.org
