This is my Uncle-my Mom's brother. He was very well respected & well loved. My Grandparents did not own the department store-that was an Uncle. My Grandparents, Ben & Leah Goldfarb owned Goldfarb market (grocery store), the Grandstand Tavern, an Army Surplus store, the building where the old taxo company was & several other properties.
