Jeffrey Erwin Feinstein, age 58 of Dallas, Texas died Tuesday,
January 8, 2008 in New York City, N.Y. He was born on
January 27, 1949 in San Antonio, TX.
Jeff attended the most recent Class Reunion of 1967 and
his classmates were shocked to hear the news.
Jeff was a kind and loving husband, father, son, uncle, brother
and friend. He was loved and admired by many people. He had
a positive attitude and an amazing personal style that showed
in his work and business. Jeff was Co-Founder of Houston
based Tootsies. He was a sales representative and assisted
with designing for Mia Shoes and was the Co-Owner, along
with his wife Patty, of the Dallas based Cotton Island.
Jeff loved to travel and see new things; he actually enjoyed
getting lost when driving new cities. He would say that's how
you discover new things. He saw a quote the other day "If you
wander off path it doesn't mean that you're lost." We laughed
about it and said it sounded like Jeff.
He was the best father to Lauren, his one and only child. He
was caring, patient, kind and she was the love of his life. Jeff
was beyond words, the best husband, friend and many times
a mentor to his wife of 25 years, Patty.
He enjoyed many aspects of life and was always interested
in leaning new things. He loved exploring new cities, collecting
Tzatzkas, enjoyed fine wines and he loved his MAVS. He
really enjoyed spending time and visiting with classmates
at the recent reunion.
Jeff was a member of the Temple Emanuel in Dallas.
Jeff also will be missed by his beloved dogs and cat, Harley,
Nash and Snickers.
It is impossible to describe the emptiness we all are feeling
right now. But he would want us all to keep moving forward
one step at a time. He will always be in our heart and prayers.
He is preceded in death by his father, Morris Feinstein.
