Mort was active in numerous organizations, such as United Cerebral Palsy, Jewish Federation, and also an advocate for institutions, such as nursing homes, children's homes and foster children. Most of all he was loving, kind and caring to all he knew. He especially loved animals and took his dogs to work with him every day. Mort touched more lives than we will ever know. Mort never cared for accolades, he just wanted to help and care for others, often forgoing recognition. Mort was an exceptional, husband, father, grandfather and friend.
