Sincere sympathies to Geri, Jeff and the family. Your father was a dear, dear friend whom I will sorely miss. Forever in my heart will be the memories of the times we all shared on my long-ago visits to Chicago.

I have known your Stuart for many years. I know he didn’t have much hair , but I really enjoyed cutting his hair. While our visits were short we laughed a lot. Usually over a joke someone sent him. He loved teasing me that I gave him the worst haircut ever, but I made him pound cake so that made the haircut better😊. He loved to brag about what his grandkids were doing. He was an extremely proud grandpa and father. He was always very proud of his family. I will miss seeing him and having a quick catch up conversation when I seen him working out(.I was always bothering him by the way😂). I will truly miss him.

Denise White- his favorite stylist

I was lucky enough to see Stuart this last summer dining with his wife Suzanne . Stuart looked and acted young as ever.
Geri has been a friend of mine for over 50 years and her love and admiration for her father has been a big part of Geri’s life and I felt as if I knew him through her. Much love and healing

Stu was a loving parent and grandparent. He was always there for his friends and was a deeply dedicated person to all he loved. When you talk about unforgettable characters ,Stu will always be at the top of the list. We will miss your loving dedication.

Uncle Stu was the first hero I had growing up. Nanny had a photo of him in his Williamsport baseball jersey, he moved all the way to Chicago, he put out a tiny fire when a kitchen towel got lit by the stove, and he took us all out in his convertible. He got me on to the field at Wrigley to meet the Cubs and Giants, he took me to the NY Worlds Fair and then he became a partner in his own firm. This was when Uncle Stu offered me first job as long as I got my law degree, but I was still years shy of my bat mitzvah and missed that job opportunity.
Most recently Uncle Stu opened my myopic vision of history to a whole new dimension when he eulogized my dad, his brother Larry. The time he gave to me that day is time I will always cherish.
My deepest condolences to Jeri, Jeffrey, Erika, Lily, Isabel and Jake

Stuart was my favorite client and I enjoyed the time we spent. Stuart would come to EBC and I would do his nails and he would tell me these jokes. Stuart you will truly be missed!
