Obituary: Sidney Stein

He was a tail gunner on a B-24 in World War II and owned S&F Beverage for 30 years.

Sidney Stein passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017.

He was the fourth child born to Ben and Sarah Edelson Stein, on Oct. 11, 1924. He was predeceased by his siblings: David (Gloria z”l) Stein, Terri (Will z”l) Michael, Edythe (Marty z”l) Steiner and Frances (Artie z”l) Robbins. Sidney had a wonderful life and enjoyed being around his family and friends. He was always engaged in the world around him and constantly wanted to know what was going on.

He was a graduate of Emory University in 1948 and was proud of his education. He stood out at graduation because he wore a yellow shirt, and everyone else had a white shirt. From that point on, Eunice, his wife, always made sure he was dressed right. Sidney served in World War II as a tail gunner on a B-24 bomber and flew on 35 missions in Europe. Sidney owned and operated S&F Beverage for 30 years. He enjoyed his participation and time at his shul, Congregation Shearith Israel, especially attending daily minyan services. Sidney made many friends and maintained his relationships with his old-time buddies. He also delivered meals for Meals on Wheels, where he always had stories to tell. He was an active participant in the Jewish War Veterans, where he and Eunice sold poppies to raise money. Eunice kept him busy, and he often said he never knew how he had time to work.

Sidney is survived by his loving and special wife, Eunice Feldman Stein; children Donnie (Patty) Stein, Stanley (Judy) Stein and Sara (Lance) Borochoff; grandchildren Jennifer (Michael) Kahan, Joshua (Dana) Stein, Benjamin (Nadine) Stein, Emily (Neil) Halpern, Elise (David) Baumgarten and Daniel Borochoff; nine great-grandchildren; and numerous adoring nieces and nephews.

Graveside services were held Thursday, Dec. 7, Greenwood Cemetery with Rabbi Ari Kaiman officiating. Memorial donations may be made to Frieda’s Fund at Congregation Shearith Israel. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
