He loved being a doctor and caring for people. He also loved fighting the good fight and was not afraid to share his opinions. He was an avid swimmer, runner and walker, and continued a fitness regime throughout his entire life. He always said, "keep moving”. In retirement he enjoyed being a “snowbird” in Sarasota and visits from his family. He called this his “slice of heaven.” He was philanthropic and supported Israel along with many Jewish charities. He was a generous giver and life long learner.
