Burton Feigenbaum, 92, passed away on January 29, 2021. He is survived by his wife Roslyn, his two daughters Joyce and Meryl and their spouses Randy and Louie, his step-son Avram and step-daughter Diane and her husband Sy, and his beloved grandchildren Sharon (Alex), Dennis (Erica), Lizzy (Tommy) and Emily. In addition, he leaves many step grandchildren and step great-grandchildren, whom he loved so much. Burt was a uniquely kind and generous man who loved a good diner, the New York Mets, and spending time with his family. More than anything, though, he drew joy from those around him and never missed an opportunity to let his loved ones know how much he cared.
Burt was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1928 to Sol and Florence and spent his childhood on the streets of Brooklyn playing stickball with his friends. He studied accounting at City College and was a practicing CPA for his entire life, retiring only three years ago at the age of 89. He married his first wife, Pearl, in 1953 and raised a family with her. Burt poured every ounce of himself in keeping his daughters, Joyce and Meryl, safe and happy, arranging family outings to Coney Island and sneaking away for secret father-daughter trips to the local pizzeria. This love later extended to his sons-in-law and his grandchildren upon whom he'd bestow gifts and hugs in childhood and impassioned interest in their careers and lives as adults.
Later in his life, Burt met Roslyn in a bereavement group and after marrying, the two enjoyed a beautiful and loving union for over 20 years. It is a true testament to Burt's character that he found such dedicated love not once, but twice in his 92 years. During their time together, Burt adopted Roslyn's family as his own, and in them found a host of people who loved him just the same.
Burt was a special man who was loved by so many and whose memory will never be forgotten.
