It has now been formally announced that our friend of baseball for over 30 years, the ENY Babe Ruth Assistant State Commissioner Brian Weiner will have the following services:
Thursday June 18th from 10am-11am
Service with Rabbi Cutler at 11am
Burial immediately following
Griswold (Baxter-Andrew) Funeral Home
1867 State Street Schenectady NY
Park View Cemetery
40 Fehr Ave
Brian had no next of kin so the ENY Babe Ruth and ESBL will be collecting donations for any funeral costs (Rabbi, obituary and grave marker so far) not paid for by the DSS. They have been very generous and have offered way more than they normally do under this circumstance. We all feel he deserves to have as many of the traditions of a Jewish funeral as can be accommodated. PLEASE do not send flowers. It would be wonderful to have as many people as possible attend the service! Obituary and a Sports front page story are in the Daily Gazette on 6/16.
Thank you all!
send donations with the memo marked Brian Weiner to:
3 Omah Terrace
Albany NY 12205
We will have an accounting of costs and any "extra" money will be given to the Memorial that is yet to be determined at the Scotia fields.
