Milton J. Weinstein


On Thursday, April 10, our shining light went out. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Elsa Sugarman Weinstein; his adored children, Jill (Richard) Finci, Philip (Crystal) Weinstein, Bram (Heather) Weinstein; and grandchildren, Jennifer (Benjamin) Livingston, Erica Finci, Jordan Finci, Noah Weinstein, Eli Weinstein, Alexandra Weinstein and Archer Weinstein. He was devoted to his brothers Alvin and Mickey who predeceased him. He is survived by his sister, Erma, his brother-in-law, Richard (Judi) Sugarman, and his sisters-in-law, Harriet and Selma Weinstein. Milton was born in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 10, 1924, to parents Alexander and Nettie (Yockelson) Weinstein. Upon graduation from McKinley High School, he was drafted into the army during World War II. He was a master sergeant with the 75th Infantry Division, Headquarters Company. He was awarded the Bronze Star along with many other medals for his bravery. His story of his service has been preserved at the Library of Congress.

When he returned home, he enrolled in Benjamin Franklin University and received his BCS degree. He was an accountant and owner of Kampus Korner in D.C. and became a real estate broker. All who knew him loved his jokes and stories which he enjoyed telling. Arrangements entrusted to Torchinsky Hebrew Funeral Home in the District.

  1. Milt was unique as his life mission was to bring joy to others and put a smile on their faces. His community service and love for family was unconditional. I already miss him much. God bless his wife Elsa and their children.
