United Trust Fund Mourns The Passing Of Our Founder SIDNEY DOMB

A loving family man and friend with an unparalleled zest for life, he leaves his family and friends with unforgettable memories of his beautiful spirit.

He firmly believed “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

He was forever young at heart.

He was larger than life and the embodiment of a man who lived life to the fullest. He shared his many gifts with everyone.

His wisdom and enthusiasm, his generosity and compassion, his wonderful stories, and his pure kindness, have made him immortal.

He has given us all a part of himself that will live in each of us forever.
