This week we have another fun and interesting sale for you! This is the estate of a very special guy with one of the neatest collections we have ever seen. When setting up the estate, we always ask the heirs for some information to learn about the people behind the estate we are representing. What Stuart Felman's son wrote - We couldn't even begin to match. Here is what he sent:
"Stuart Felman was a true Renaissance man. He loved art, he loved to paint, he loved music (Sinatra and the Beach Boys were favorites), he loved the theatre, he loved culture in all forms, he loved his cats and he absolutely loved women! He was a custom suit maker for athletes, celebrities and many regular folks for 50 years - many many years in Philadelphia and then in Beverly Hills, California. He traveled the world, he took great pride in his craft and he lived his entire life for his family.
He was loved by so many - he had a killer smile, a wonderful upbeat personality and he was a kind and caring friend. He was the guy who "knew a guy" – he would always have a contact or connection he could refer to help you out in almost any given situation. He was very well-connected! He played golf for many years, had many friends in the entertainment industry and in law-enforcement, and he absolutely loved baseball and the Philadelphia Phillies. He was a Philly guy with a quick wit, a great sense of humor, and he was a loving father, brother, uncle and grandfather to his grandchildren.
He was the greatest man I've ever known and I miss him every day! I love him and I'll think about him every day for the rest of my life." - Jeff Felman
Stuart would be proud!
