Dear husband of Diane, Emile fought to live for several weeks until he succumbed on Sunday, March 22. Born in Brooklyn to Grace nd Siegmund Charlap on April 27, 1918. He was devoted to his music contracting and copying office and loved playing trumpet. Besides his wife, he leaves many adoring nieces and nephews. Brother, Teddy predeceased him. He loved designing his Fire Island house and garden which he tended passionately. Memorial at a later date.
