Dr. Carl Strauss,  We will miss our amazing polymath.

Great-grandfather to Sophie, Margot, Ryan and Gavin. In 1993, Dr. Carl, who delivered generations of Brooklyn babies, was voted "Man of the Year" in Bensonhurst.  He will be missed enormously by so many for whom he was man of the year, every year.  Carl, along with his wife Shirley, was a  staunch supporter of East Midwood Jewish Center. The family would  appreciate  contributions be sent there or Temple Beth El, Manhattan Beach or Turning Point, Patterson, NJ
