Died peacefully on June 9, 2016. Son of Rose z'l and Harry z'l, loving husband to Ann z'l and then to Sharron z'l, brother to Dan and Mimi, uncle to Michael, Steven, Kenneth and their families, and friend to many. Born in Brooklyn in 1929, Sol worked in his parents' grocery store before serving in the Army for three years. Sol graduated from CCNY in 1952 and earned a law degree from Yale in 1955. Sol served as Trial and Resident Counsel for Liberty Mutual, was a Magistrate Judge in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, served as President and CEO of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies Service Corporation, and was a partner at Milberg. Sol had a passion for education, spending over 40 years developing continuing education programs and books for ALI-ABA, being an adjunct professor at Fordham School of Law, and chairing a course on American law in China and India. But Sol will be remembered most for his founding of the Ann Schreiber Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (now OCRFA), in memory of Ann, in 1994, and his tireless advocacy on behalf of OCRFA, which has invested nearly $70 million in ovarian cancer research. Sol will be missed by all those people whose lives he touched. A Funeral Service will be held at 9:30am on Friday, June 10, at "The Riverside," Amsterdam Ave. at 76th St. Contributions in Sol's honor may be made to OCRFA at No shiva but details about a future memorial service that OCRFA is arranging can be obtained from OCRFA.
