Albert Elman, age 84, of Longwood, passed away on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at Florida Hospital Altamonte. Al was the beloved and adored husband of Cyndie Elman (nee Cynthia Tulip) for only 46 years, and step-father to Beth Reinstein-Atkins, Lynn Reinstein and Karen Reinstein, as well as grandfather by choice to Zoe Atkins. He was the brother to Hilda Frishman (nee Elman) and the late Florence Klosky (nee Elman), and the son to the late Julia (nee Lefkowitz) and the late Benjamin Elman.

Al was a graduate of Brooklyn College, long before it became part of SUNY, with a degree in economics. For many years after that, he worked as a systems analyst for American Express Company, and was instrumental in beginning their online shipping program. After leaving American Express, Al was with AT&T in Florida as part of their corporate breakup. As the breakup was completed, there was no desire to return to cold, icy, snowy, and hot humid, rancid New York City so he and Cyndie remained in Altamonte Springs for over 35 years. They eventually moved to Brookdale Island Lake where they enjoyed a relaxed worry-free lifestyle.

Arrangements entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 640 Lee Road, Orlando FL 32810. 407-599-1180.
