 Obituario de David Regenstein
David Regenstein of Barrington, Rhode Island, died on December 15, 2022, at the age of 93. He was born in Munich, Germany, on September 19, 1929, to Lisl and Ludwig Regensteiner. He emigrated to the United States with his parents and siblings, Max and Hannah, in 1937. They settled in Providence, where he graduated from Hope High School. His college years at Brown University were interrupted by the Korean conflict when his reserve unit was called up, and he served in Germany until 1952. Upon his return, he completed his studies, graduating from Brown in 1953 with a degree in Chemistry (class ‘51). He worked at Northeast Paper Converting company and then purchased and ran a Meineke Muffler franchise in Warwick. After closing this business, he pursued his passion for cards by working as a casino dealer and managing the RI Bridge Club. David was known for his sweet personality, quick wit, and great kindness. He was an avid tennis player and competed in many Barrington tournaments. He was skilled at chess, playing many times a week until his love of bridge was rekindled. He played in tournaments across the country, achieving Gold Life Master status in 1993. In his final years, he played online daily and had a regular game at the Barrington Senior Center. As a member of the Viking Bridge Club, he was known for mentoring and teaching those new to the game, and he impressed many that he could transition to online playing at age 90. He is survived by his daughters, Lisa Rector and Anne Regenstein, four grandchildren- Christopher, Caitlin, Talia, Jacob, his former wife, Gabrielle Regenstein, and his longtime close friend, Ina Lazarus. His second wife, Charyl Gilbard Regenstein, predeceased him in 1997. Funeral and burial are private. Donations in his memory may be made to HopeHealth Hospice, 1085 North Main St., Providence, RI 02904 or Arrangements are in the care of Sugarman-Sinai Memorial Chapel, Providence.
