I just found out about the recent passing of Edward "Eddie" Dinkowitz, after reading a post that Salvador Litvak (aka: the Accidental Talmudist) made on his Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/accidentaltalmudist?fref=nf

According to Salvador, there isn't much that is known about Eddie Dinkowitz, because strictly enforced HIPAA privacy rules prevented his conservator from revealing much of anything about Mr. Dinkowitz's life.

Consequently, there were only a few pieces of information that Mr. Litvak, and members of the Accidental Talmudist community, could obtain at Edward Dinkowitz's interment. Here is all that is known about him at this time:

- Eddie was abandoned by his natural parents at an early age, and was more than likely raised by a foster family.

- He attended Beverly Hills High School from 1964-1965, as did future actor Richard Dreyfuss. In fact, their class photos are on the same row in the 1964, and 1965 BHHS yearbook.

- Eddie had been under the care of conservatorship groups throughout the years, including JFS (Jewish Family Service).

- It was heartwarming to hear, that Eddie was well-liked by his caretakers, and nurses.

May the abandoned, and practically unknown [gentle] Jew, Edward "Eddie" Dinkowitz, always be remembered for a blessing.

** Need HELP from the public. We do NOT know whether Eddie was ADOPTED or not. If you knew him, or someone who did, and know the answer to this question, please contact me. I want to be able to add his parents, and grandparents to this Find A Grave memorial page. Thank-you. **
