Family

I am the eldest of five siblings. I am four years older than my kid brother, ten years older than my kid sister, thirteen years older than my baby brother and fourteen years older than my baby sister.

Our parents were the son of immigrants from Eastern Europe and the daughter of an immigrant from Czarist Russia and of a second generation immigrant from the Kaiser’s Germany. Our grandparents were all entrepreneurial in their own rights. Our paternal grandparents owned a paint and hardware store in the Kingsbridge section of New York City. I believe they had been farmers for a time and that my paternal grandmother had also worked as a cook for a resort hotel in Catskill Mountains of New York.

Our parents knew each other in grammar school. Our mother was a self-proclaimed “tom-boy” who played baseball with the boys when they “needed another man” and she was all there was. Our father worked for his folks, which was apparently not atypical in those days, either minding the store or helping on residential painting jobs they might have gotten from time-to-time. They married while our father was in uniform during the Second World War. He had hitchhiked across the country and, when Pearl Harbor was attacked and his number was picked for the draft, he hitchhiked back home to New York to join the Army. He served in various capacities including as a Guard for Prisoners of War in Texas.

My siblings and I have each given our parents two grandchildren ranging in age from my sons of 39 and 38 years old respectively to my niece born late in 2003.

Our father died in August of 1996 at the age of 76 so he really missed out on knowing three of his grandchildren. One of them was named in his memory according to our cultural and religious custom.

My mother is well and lives nearby. She still showed up to work every day in my office until a few years ago, is active in a national non-denomiational philanthropic organization drove her own car until a few yesrs ago and maintains a lifelong loving relationship with her older sister, who is suffering from Parkensons Disease, by making sure that their every-couple-of-weeks get-togethers for brunch followed by their manicures and pedicures take place. She recently embarked on a new "career" serving as moderator for the Current Events Forum at the Mid-Island Y-JCC.
