He will be sadly missed by his family, which includes his son Jay Lubman, his

four sisters, Jacqueline Gresh (Eric) of Colorado Springs, Colo., Roberta

Valentine (Fred) of New York, N.Y., Georgette Mathews (James) of Colorado

Springs, Colorado and Margaret Droney (Frederick) of Erie; and one brother
