  1. He was a very fine man, a real mensch, and talmid chacham, and baal chesed. When I was in the military, stationed in Germany, my wife and kids and I used to go to the Bambergers for Shabbos and Yom TOv frequently. He and his Rebbetzin and children were lovely hosts, and we enjoyed our time with them tremendously. He will be sorely missed. Baruch Dayan Emes.
