Obituary

1920 - 2013

Mort passed away peacefully on October 7, 2013 after a brief illness. Born in New York City in 1920, he was a beloved father to Susan and Marc and an adoring grandfather to Christopher, Lyndsey and Julianne.

A successful attorney in lower Manhattan until his retirement at age 86, Mort's true passion was the written word. He was a widely published fiction writer, placing short stories in many of the most respected commercial and literary magazines of his day.

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he enlisted in the armed forces, where he served as a Coast Guardsman on a fireboat in the Sea of Japan and as a correspondent for the U.S. military publication, Stars and Stripes.

Mort's wit, intelligence, kindness and zest for life will be forever remembered by his family, friends and colleagues.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 13 at 11:00am at Riverside Memorial Chapel, New York, NY. All are welcome.
