Jacob "Jack" Garfinkel

CHARLOTTE, NC — Jacob "Jack" Garfinkel passed away on June 25, 2010. Devoted husband to his wife of 53 years, Esther; loving father of Neil (Donna) Garfinkel and Susan Falcone; nurturing grandfather of Jessica Garfinkel, Lara Falcone and Jason Garfinkel; also the brother of five loving sisters.

Jack was born in New York City on September 14, 1918. He served for nineteen years in the United States military as a navigator and achieved the rank of Captain. He then went on to open several Army surplus stores in Niagara Falls, eventually opening Allen's Menswear in Pine Plaza. Upon retiring, he devoted his time to enjoying what he loved the most, his family and friends.

Known to some as Jack, to others as Mr. Allen, and to us, most lovingly as Zaidie, he will be affectionately missed.
