In Hawaii, he began in the hotel industry and then dedicated himself to the elderly, AIDS afflicted, Parkinson patients, Alzheimers, etc. He was never driven by money but enjoyed his academics, his travel and giving away most of what he earned. There is not one friend that he met that hasn't been deeply impacted by the joy of being in his presence. He had double advanced degrees in business and in public health. Even after his retirement he had a place to serve in the medical school. He is survived by his mother, Eleanor Lyden, seven siblings, and 35 +/- nieces and nephews.
