Local Obituaries and Funeral Notice News

Amalia de Fortabat, 90, Dies; Noted for Art and Scandal

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Pierre hotel in Manhattan. After a period of mourning, Mrs. Fortabat went to work managing the company, Loma Negra, Argentina’s biggest supplier of cement and concrete. She became known as the “Dama del Cemento” — the cement lady. She won government contracts from the military dictatorship of the 1970s to build dams, roads and stadiums while tripling the company’s assets. Before long it had captured three-quarters of the nation’s cement business. “I went to work as if I understood everything,” she said. “And, finally, I understood very well.” She amassed a fortune estimated at $1.8 billion, though America Economia, a Latin American business magazine, now lists it as $902 million. Still, it made her the third-richest person in Argentina and the richest woman there at her death. As a businesswoman, she diversified into fields like banks, a newspaper, a radio station and an 1,800-mile railroad. As a volunteer public servant, she was appointed Argentina’s roving ambassador-at-large and president of the National Arts Foundation. As a philanthropist, she gave many millions to various causes, including the arts, the veterans of Argentina’s war with England over the Falkland Islands and refugees from the war in Kosovo in 1999. As a socialite in Argentina, New York and Europe, she was often photographed with friends like David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger. As ... (New York Times)

Gary Carter, Exuberant Power-Hitting Catcher, Dies at 57

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
Curly-haired and with a ready smile, he was loved by the fans, first in Montreal, then in New York. “I am certainly happy that I don’t have to run for election against Gary Carter,” Pierre Elliott Trudeau, then prime minister of Canada, once remarked. Carter excited Shea Stadium fans in his first game as a Met. After sliding into second with a double to left-center field in the 1985 season opener against the St. Louis Cardinals, he jumped up and pumped his right fist. In the 10th inning he hit a game-winning homer over the left-field fence, then pumped his arm again and again while he rounded the bases as the crowd roared. He was mobbed by his teammates at home plate, and when the fans chanted for a curtain call, he came out of the dugout waving both arms. He was as exuberant behind the plate. When Carter tagged a runner out at home, he liked to punctuate the play by happily holding the ball aloft. He may have led the 1986 Mets in hugging teammates. Playing his first 11 seasons with the Expos, Carter became the face of the franchise, which sometimes struggled. But the Expos’ ownership chafed at his high salary and traded him to the Mets in December 1984 for four young players. Some Expos were put off by Carter’s unabashed enthusiasm. They felt he was obsessed with his image and basked in his press coverage too eagerly. They called him Camera Carter. “He had some problems among his teammates,” Andre Dawson, the Expos’ future Hall of Fame outfielder, told The New York Times after Ca... (New York Times)

François Lesage Dies at 82; Led Couture Embroidery Atelier

Fri, Dec 2, 2011
Mr. Lesage returned to Paris to take over the atelier. As the head of the company, he introduced many of the great designers of postwar Europe to Lesage, including Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior. And with the rise of ready-to-wear, Mr. Lesage expanded production to include embroidery for many American designers, among them Calvin Klein, Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta. But with very few artisans so specialized now surviving, only a handful of designers, dominated by Chanel, have been able to produce such elaborate embroidery designs with Lesage in recent years. Mr. Lesage’s survivors include his wife and four children, two of whom have also worked in fashion. A son, Jean-Francois Lesage, began making home designs in Chennai, India, in 1993, and a daughter, Marion Lesage, an artist, had a clothing and accessories collection in Paris in the 1990s. Further information about his survivors was not immediately available, a Chanel spokeswoman said. The company said it would continue to operate the Lesage atelier. (New York Times)

Andrew Kazdin, Classical Record Producer, Dies at 77

Wed, Nov 30, 2011
Columbia Records. While there, Mr. Kazdin produced some of George Szell’s last recordings with the Cleveland Orchestra and virtually all the recordings by the New York Philharmonic under Pierre Boulez and Zubin Mehta. He collaborated with another producer, Thomas Z. Shepard, on “Everything You Always Wanted to Hear on the Moog,” an album of classical favorites performed on the Moog synthesizer. And he made many of Gould’s recordings, at that pianist’s private studio in Toronto, experiences he chronicled in a book, “Glenn Gould at Work: Creative Lying” (1989). In 1979, when record companies were beginning to make digital recordings, Mr. Kazdin took the view that the quality of the production was more important than the mechanics of the recording process, and he objected to CBS Records’ decision to use a two-track recording system that limited his prerogatives. At a New York Philharmonic session that November, he objected vociferously, and he was soon dismissed. Mr. Kazdin went on to make recordings for CBS as a freelance producer and to oversee the sound of “Live From Lincoln Center” TV broadcasts of music, ballet and theater. At his death he was preparing to produce the sound for a coming broadcast of “The Nutcracker,” Ms. Adler said. He is also survived by another daughter, Nancy Scalzi, and a sister, Phoebe Kazdin Schnitzer. Musicians respected the acuity of Mr. Kazdin’s hearing, as well as his inherent musicality. After a recording session with Mr. Boulez and the New York Philharmonic in the 1970s, one player told a companion that when they recorded with Leonard Bernstein, they made a game of seeing how many wrong notes they could play before Bernstein or his producer, John McClure, stopped them. “We can’t do that with Boulez and Kazdin,” the musician said. “Their ears are too good.” ...

The Five Peskiest Hitters of 2011 - FanGraphs (blog)

Sat, Oct 15, 2011
I used a 400 plate appearance minimum cutoff. Honorable mentions who did not quite make the top five are Chris Getz, Ryan Theriot, Juan Pierre and his younger self Ben Revere, and Michael Brantley. Those five do not exactly conjure up thoughts of good hitters making the top five, but there are some surprises. 5. Bobby Abreu, 2.380 PeRT, 81.6% contact, 34.3% swing. This one surprised me at first, although it makes sense. Abreu has always been known for having a great batting eye, and a player with a great eye is not going to swing at a pitch with which he does not think he can make contact. Abreu has had a great career and has a somewhat-plausible Hall of Fame case. Despite keeping his walk rate up, his power is just about gone, and although a .325 wOBA in 2011 was above average, Abreu is pretty much a DH-only player at this point. Good thing he Angels did not let him get more than 550 plate appearances, which would have triggered his $9 million opt– d’oh. As a great man once said, maybe it’s just society. 4. Ian Kinsler, 2.390 PeRt, 91.5% contact, 38.2% swing. While Mike Napoli has rightly received recognition for being a key addition for the Rangers this season (you can’t get players like Napoli for nothing… just almost nothing, apparently), and Adrian Beltre also had a tremendous season, Kinsler has been their most valuable player. Hopefully Kinsler will get a decent amount of American League MVP support. He managed a .370 wOBA with only a .243 BABIP this season, which is what happens when a player walks a lot and hardly ever strikes out. I guess Kinsler has too much power to be considered conventionally “pesky.” A better word for Kinsler might be “awesome.” As the Rangers’ lead-off hitter, he allegedly is not ideal, but as the playoff television announcers of the ALDS said of Beltre, Kinsler is another good complementary player to Michael Young.
