He is survived by his children: Sandra and Carl; and grandchildren: Benjamin and Jennifer.
A graduate of Columbia College in 1941, his distinguished career in medicine encompassed many diverse aspects of the field including direct patient care, pharmaceutical research at Merck, a term as medical examiner in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and vigorous public health efforts. He was also one of the founders of Doctors Hospital on Staten Island, N.Y.

He has inspired his children and grandchildren to carry on this tradition.
