Sorry to Report the Passing of Sidney Leinwand

January 2, 2009

Dear Skip,

It has been quite a while since we posted a question asking who remembers Sid & Sam's Candy Store. You were kind enough to be the first to respond with memories of how your Dad and Uncle had a laundry a few stores down from Sid's. There were many responses to that question who remembers Sid & Sams. My Uncle enjoyed reading every one.

I am sorry to say My Uncle Sid passed away this afternoon at the age of 94. He was a graduate of Far Rockaway HS. I will miss him very much. He was a wonderful man.

For those who want to say a few kind words in remembrance please respond to this post right here on the Rockaway Board. Sid was Sidney Leinwand. You may also send an email to his son Alan at  or his daughter Cindy at  Your kind condolences would be well appreciated.

The Rockaways and Long Island lost a very special man today.   Thank you from Larry Weiss, Class of 66'    Email address:
