Obituary: Seymour “Sy” Sundick

Seymour “Sy” Sundick

Sy Sundick, a resident of Great Neck for over 30 years, died on March 25, 2009 from acute myloid leukemia. He was 87 years old. He was best known as the legendary girl’s head counselor of Tyler Hill Camp from 1960 to 1990. He was also a highly regarded educator with the NYC Board of Education.

Seymour Howard Sundick, born and raised in Brooklyn, oldest of three, was an honor student and an athlete who played for the University of Albany’s varsity baseball team. When WWII broke out he was drafted into the Army at age 20. He became an officer in the 8th Air Force in the Quartermaster Corps. As a neutral leader, he would become the commanding officer of a 35-truck motor pool. His uncanny sense of direction served him well, as England removed all of her road signs, to prevent the Nazis from finding their way around, if they invaded. His battalion went from one secret munitions dump to another, delivering bombs to secret airfields, where warplanes would go on bombing runs against Germany. The continued success of his missions all over England won him several citations of merit. Eventually, he served in a similar capacity in France, where he also served as a translator, because he was a French scholar, and finally, saving the worst for last, he witnessed the horrors of the Holocaust, when he participated in the liberation of the infamous concentration camp at Buchenwald. He was also involved in the ceremonies where German officers surrendered their weapons to him and other commanding officers.

Norman Dolid

Norman “Dick” Dolid, former Great Neck resident for nearly 50 years, worked for peace and died in peace among loved ones at the Quadrangle, his home in Haverford, PA, on Oct. 25, 2009.

Dick and beloved wife Marcelle were vibrant members of the Great Neck community. Their lifelong activism to promote social justice and world peace was highlighted in several Great Neck Record articles over the years. Recently, Dick’s photo appeared in a Philadelphia newspaper as a senior activist in weekly vigils protesting the war in Iraq. After Dick and Marcelle moved to the Quadrangle in 2000, Dick built a new community of supportive friends who shared his vitality and many interests.

In addition to a busy career in financial management, Dick and Marcelle were lifelong learners who participated in many community arts and cultural activities. They devoted themselves to helping raise their grandchildren, Jonathan and Daniel Fichter and Anne and Thomas Howard Dolid. Dick’s children and spouses, Margaret and Andrew Fichter and Peter and Jill Dolid, treasure Dick and Marcelle for embracing the family in a perfect circle of love and delight.
