In 1999, Eddie (born Isadore) Sofian passed away at the age of 73. He was one of 6 children of Anna Jacobs (my grandfather’s sister) and Sol Sofian, making him my 1st cousin once removed. He is the only one of the Sofian children not still alive, even though the other 5 are between 80 and 93. They are quite a hearty family!
He married Edith Gordon in 1944, and they had 3 children and 3 grandchildren. He later married Lynne Berkowitz. Born in Philadelphia, he spent is final years in the St. Petersburg area of Florida.
