Sid Malvin Kresses died March 21, 2021, at age 89. Born in Birmingham, Ala., in 1931 to Emma and Hyman, Sid was the youngest of five and the only boy. After the Army, he moved to Atlanta to attend Emory Law School.
Sid, affectionately known as “Brother,” “PaPa,” and “Kress,” was an Atlanta lawyer and real estate developer for over 60 years. Above all else, he was devoted to his wife Lee, his children Mamie, Jay and Bart; to their spouses David, Melanie and Kathy, and to the legion of grandchildren, who would rather hang out at PaPa’s house than just about anywhere on earth.
He was a man of great goodness, decency and generosity, a guardian angel to his large extended family, friends, neighbors, clients, tenants and even strangers in need. A graveside service was held March 22. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
