Rheumatology. He was a sole Park Avenue practitioner for most of his
career, choosing to serve the community through a blended practice of

the practice of medicine, tennis, nature (through the lens of a camera
and later expressed in his local award-winning paintings), and most of all
He is survived by his loving wife, Judith, his daughter Robyn, his son and
daughter-in-law Eric and Jennifer, his brother Richard and his niece and
nephew Hannah and Jared. He was Pop-Pop to his grandchildren
