Arnold Fein, 83, of Sarasota and formerly of Longboat Key, died June 25.
Born July 25, 1926, in Brooklyn, N.Y., and grew up in Queens, N.Y. After graduating from high school at 16, he volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army during World War II and became a tank crewman and radio operator. He graduated from City College of New York with a degree in business administration and became a successful insurance broker.
Mr. Fein and his wife, Shirley, lived in Bergen County, N.J., and began visiting Longboat Key in the 1960s, before moving to the island permanently in the late 1980s.
Mr. Fein was an active member of Temple Beth Israel. His love of dancing earned him the nickname “Twinkle Toes.” He also enjoyed trips to the opera, classical music and travel.
Mr. Fein is survived by his wife of 54 years, Shirley; son, Joel Fein; daughters Tina Fein Dinitz and Mitchell Cooper; three grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
A funeral service will take place at 1 p.m., Monday, June 28, at Temple Beth Israel, 567 Bay Isles Road.
