Sinai Hospital, totaling 51 years of service to the betterment of the lives of the people living in the City of Cleveland. In fact, in 1967 he was active in supporting the campaigning efforts to elect the first African American, Carl Stokes to serve as mayor of a major U.S. city here in Cleveland.

He will be cherished and remembered for being an outstanding husband, father, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, cousin, friend, and resident whose life represented the success of living in Cleveland as a desirable, safe city in which one can live, study, work, raise a family, shop, play and grow old.
