Obituary: Marty Milstein

He was a furniture salesman and a devoted volunteer for Emory St. Joseph's Hospital and Temple Beth Tikvah.

Marty Milstein passed away Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Charlene Zimmerman Milstein; a brother, Phil Milstein of Columbus, Ohio; a son, Jeff Milstein (Karen); a daughter, Missy Stein (Terry); and grandchildren Jessica Alderson (Jesse), Rachel Stein, Andrew Stein, Kaden Milstein and Kayla Milstein. He was preceded in death by his sister, Helen Pickett, and his parents, Rose and Shy Milstein.

Marty was a true salesman at heart, loved fondly by all those who knew him. His readiness with a joke, jovial laugh and sparkling eyes will be warmly remembered. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Marty moved to Atlanta after his marriage to Charlene, working in the furniture industry for nearly 40 years. His involvement at Congregation Shearith Israel during those years gave him a great sense of satisfaction. Marty was also a member of a Masonic lodge and was a deputy sheriff of DeKalb County. After his retirement, he began a second career as a volunteer for Temple Beth Tikvah and St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary. One of the highlights of his later life was receiving the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Auxiliary Board. His thousands of hours of service garnered him a wide community of friends from all walks of life.
