|Let the memory of Stuart be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our father, Stuart Kirschner.
"The Gusack girls send their thoughts and prayers to Liz and Andrew. We are so sorry for your loss."
"Unfortunately I didn't get to know Stuart. Yet there's no question that he had to be a highly remarkable man, to say the very very least, based on the highly exceptional kids he raised .... unusual excellence all around."
"The loss of a parent is difficult, to say the least. When grandpa passed away so many thoughts and memories flooded my mind. As silly as it may sound one of my clearest memories of your dad were his fishing expeditions. He would always remark on who caught the fish with the "biggest shoulders ". I could never figure out where a fish's shouders would be! The pain will subside but the memories will always be with you. Much sympathy and love. Aunt Mag and Bob"
"Liz and Andrew, my condolences to you both. Reading the many tributes here is proof your father was such an amazing man. Although I only met him a couple times, they were very memorable moments. He was kind and funny and seem to always have my back (a very comforting feeling for living in the city!) He will always be in your heart and never forget the lessons he taught you. You both were very good to him and were always there when he needed you. The best father with the best children. Love to you both xoxoxo"
"How do we ever say goodbye to someone who loved like my Uncle Stuart did? We don't because Love ALWAYS wins. We also first have to define what Love is ...
Love is patient and kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Luckily for me I was the recipient of my Uncles love throughout my life, especially growing up as a kid. My Uncle Stuart was always a blessing to me and in my life. His sister Marilyn is my mother and today my mother turned 85 years old. I just returned from visiting her and I can tell you that she'll miss her younger brother Stuart.
It's very evident that both of my cousins Andrew and Liz had received enormous amounts of support, encouragement, love and more from their father Stuart. Both of my cousins had such an amazing relationship with their father Stuart it was an honor to be "just" related to them and witness their love for each other.
I hope and pray that when "you" think of this Big teddy bear of a man that happened to be my Uncle, that "you" too would feel love in your heart at the mere mention of his name.
There's One thing that I know to be true and that is my Uncle Stuart loved well."
"You both are so lucky to have had such an amazing father and each having beautifully close relationships with him. This site is a beautiful way to honor him and share memories. I haven't seen your dad since we were young kids but he was always smiling , much like the two of you!
Love you both and so sorry for your loss"
"Yael and I were shocked and very saddened by the call from you, Andrew. It was difficult to think that we will no longer have him in our lives. Stuart was my close bridge partner for over 10 years. We played weekly bridge in Boca and often looked for games in other towns, and that always included a delicious stop at the French bakery near the Ft Lauderdale B club, and a stop at a favorite restaurant at the end of the day.
Stuart was so witty, smart, and had a clever sense of humor. He was one of the best bridge players i ever met, and we all knew how much the game meant to him.
Best of all, it was always so touching to hear him talk about you and your sister. You could tell how much love and pride he had for you. His face would light up when the subject was His Children. He felt blessed to be your father.
Stu, you will be so missed, words cannot express the sadness Yael and I feel. We will always remember you as the dear friend you were to both of us. With much love. Mike"
"Liz and Andrew - how fortunate you are to have had such a wonderful dad. May your memories of him continue to comfort you always. Our heartfelt love and condolences to you and your family.
Ian and Juanita Marvuglio"
"I am very saddened to hear of his passing. Mr. Kirschner (as I always called him) was always so nice to me. I remember him as smart, funny, and sweet, especially towards his children. Liz and Andy, he loved you so much and he lives on in each of you. Love, Paul."
"Liz & Andrew - I/we always admired your father Stuart, he was a generous a good man and welcomed us to your NJ home to share his prized Bachman's and watch a ball game... always very supportive, kind and with a great smile for all even when we were repairing the damaged front door... He will be remembered and missed, prayers are with you both and the entire Kirschner Family, thoughts and condolences during this difficult time... much Love - Dan Gladstone"
"Liz and Andrew, You are both so fortunate to have had a father that loved you deeply. He was lucky that he always knew you loved him too."
"As Liz and Andrew's childhood friend, I knew Mr. Kirschner as the sweetest and most funny Dad in the neighborhood, hands down. He was always joking with us kids, and making us laugh and laughing along with us. I always felt welcomed in his home. Liz and Andrew, I'm sending you love and peace right now. -Melissa Toto"
"Andrew and Liz,
How fortunate you are to have had such a loving and special father. He will be missed and will surely live on in all of our memories."
"Stuart and I were married for 25 years and had the best two children any parent could wish for. Stuart was the best father a child could have. He loved his children more than anything in the world and his children adored him. He was always there for them whether it was attending one of their ballgames, taking them sledding or ice skating or reading them a bedtime story. He instilled in them the importance of family and they have stayed connected to family even though they lived across the country from most of them. He was a wonderful son to his widowed mother. We traveled to the Bronx at least once a week after work to have dinner with her and he was there for her whenever she needed him. I will never regret the years we had together and the two wonderful human beings that came from that marriage.
May you rest in peace. You will live forever in all of our hearts."
"Stuart Kirschner still lives through his two beloved, remarkable children. <3"
