Alvin grew up in East New York, Brooklyn and moved to Staten Island in his late teens. His twenties and early thirties were spent in a great apartment on the Lower East Side, a place that holds many memories for our many friends. The same weekend Alvin and I were expecting our first child, we moved into our home in Baldwin Harbor, Long Island. Alvin was a loving husband and a devoted father, whose happiest times were spent skiing and playing baseball with his two sons, Sam, 14, and Harris, 12. He was a loving son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew and friend.
Alvin was a kid at heart, a self-taught guitar player who loved rock and roll, comic books and sports. Much of his social time was spent with old friends who went as far back as grade school and junior high.
Alvin joined Cantor Fitzgerald five years ago, soon after the proposed Dean Witter- Morgan Stanley merger that took place in 1997. He had spent ten happy years at Dean Witter in their Institutional Equity Department.
I love my husband and will always remember that he was so very satisfied with his life and so proud of his sons. The memories are so vivid and will last forever. It is a testament to the wonderful man Alvin was that each day someone will say to me “I think of him every single day”.
