Some very dear memories of meeting Mr. Leslie Fishman was when I was hired at Edward Don & this was my first job! (1965) He was a very caring & a professional supervisor. My sister Mary Ann was also employed there too.
In 1967, He and his wife attended our wedding reception back in 1967, which we were thrilled & happy to see them. I have their picture in our wedding album! ( I also still have the silver serving tray that they sent us for our wedding gift, which will be our 55th yr. anniversary this coming April.)
Our deepest condolences to each one of the family members, extended family & friends. May you find comfort in knowing he was a blessing to us & other lives he touched.
