Sidney Kahn
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 20, 1916
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Aug. 8, 1933
New York, USA

Bertha Kahn gave birth to another set of twins in 1916: Sidney and Roselle. They were very different from each other. Sidney was outgoing, athletic and so popular that he was elected class president in high school. Roselle was quiet and intellectual; she rarely dated and never married. She loved learning and had the highest grade point average in her class. Sidney and Roselle won every award the high school offerred except the one for homemaking, and Sidney was chosen "most likely to succeed." However, less than two months after graduation, Sidney was killed in a car accident while driving his brother Dave's car to New York to deliver furs for his brother. He was seventeen years old at the time of his death which occurred only two years after his brother (Edward Kahn) and sister (Pauline Kahn) had drowned. Between July 1931 and August 1933, his mother had lost three of her children violently. While Sidney was killed at seventeen, his twin sister lived to 88.
