Celebrating the life of my Grandpa Dr. Carl Strauss [1921-2013]

My amazing Grandpa passed away peacefully Tuesday. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, August 11th at 12:00 Noon at Sherman's Memorial Chapel 1283 Coney Island Avenue


Beautiful write up about my Grandpa's 90th Birthday: 

Dr. Carl Strauss,  We will miss our amazing polymath. A brilliant and compassionate family physician for over 50 years.  Loving husband to Shirley  Strauss for 67 years and devoted father to Dr. Elton Strauss (Karen) and Bonnie Carroll (Kevin); adored grandfather to Eric (Bridget), Elisa (Marc), Melanie (Peter) and the  late K.J. 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
