    I lost my best friend growing up in Williamsburg. Both of us went to PS 122 and then graduated from Eastern District H.S in 1958.
    I always remember Al always beating me when we played cards or flipped baseball cards. I called him the card wizard. The favorite memory I have is when we used to come home from school and go to my house and look up names in the phone book. We would then call someone up randomly from the name we chose to tell them they would win a gift if they named a song we were to play. Al would play the song on the Wollensack tape player and I would play the disk jockey. I guess we would be arrested if we did this today.
    A great pal! Will always cherish the memories we had and miss him every day.

    Alvin Stanley Kornfeld
    Alvin S. Kornfeld, 80, of Succasunna, N.J., died Sunday morning Jan. 10, 2021 at Morristown Memorial Hospital.  He was born on May 27, 1940 in Manhattan, N.Y. to the late Benjamin and Gertrude (Cohen) Kornfeld.
    He was a graduate of Eastern District High School, Brooklyn, N.Y., and moved to New Jersey living in Lodi, Fair Lawn and Succasunna for almost 46 years.
    Alvin was a retired salesman for 45 years of many trades including Therma Spas, Craftmatic adjustable beds, Life Alert systems, baby pictures and shoes, where he worked for his uncle at the Shoe Fair in Fair Lawn for 18 years. He was a Million Dollar Award Salesman for Therma Spas. Whatever the product was he could sell it. Someone recently said “he could sell ice to the Eskimos.”
    He served in the U.S. Army Reserves during peacetime from 1962-1967. Spending time with his wife, Toby, of 56 years, along with his four children and nine grandchildren was his greatest joy. He always looked forward to watching and cheering them on at their soccer games, basketball games, dance recitals and singing “Happy Birthday” no matter near or far.
    Anyone who knew Alvin, would say that the smile in his eyes and on his lips would light up a room, his funny faces would make you laugh, his creative games would keep you playing, his entertaining stories would keep you listening, his sayings would keep you guessing and his everlasting rosy cheeks would warm your heart.
    Alvin is survived by his loving wife Toby (Grossman) Kornfeld; son, Brian Kornfeld (life-long companion Tammee Abramsky) of Hauppaugue, N.Y.; and three daughters, Lisa Sclar (Doug) of Succasunna; Cheryl Conway (Todd) of Flanders; Randi Beck (Steve) of Califon; and nine grandchildren: Scott, Rachel and Ryan Sclar; and Griffin, Jonah, Skylar, Molly, Eli and Devin Conway. 
    Alvin was predeceased by his brother, Steven Kornfeld.  
    Graveside services were privately held Monday, Jan. 11, at Cedar Park Cemetery, Paramus, N.J.
    Contributions in his memory may be made to Chabad of Northwest N.J.-Western Region in Flanders. Please send donations in memory of Alvin S. Kornfeld to mychabadcenter.com/donate
