A true Bronxite in many ways. He lived most of his formative years in the South Bronx. He attended Morris HS and graduated in 1954. He even learned to speak Yiddish during his stint as a helper in a Bronx baby furniture store. He attended CCNY like so many other Bronxites, joined the ROTC and the rest most of you know. The fact that he accomplished all this as a black, inner-city man from a relatively impoverished family is extraordinary. RIP.
