Amos Schuchman, photo from the New York Daily News, via BizPac Review
Another great obituary.
It was a paid notice (most obituaries are paid notices, by the way), published February 2, 2013 — and it offered Amos Schuchman one last dig at The New York Times:
“[Amos Schuchman] Loved his family, his birth and adopted countries, finance, skiing, opera, ballet and biking in Central Park. Loved everything about NYC, except the New York Times.”
Amos Schuchman’s children wrote, “His fearless heart still beats within all of us. Shalom, Saba.”
Sometimes obituaries really capture the deceased person’s spirit. Schuchman’s smiling now.
(No, I don’t share his view of the newspaper.)
