REMEMBERING GIDEON

He was a blessing to us in life. Such enthusiasm for our profession (and for lots of other things in life, like theatre)! 

He was instrumental in educating me about E&S and being a CDMM. Gideon always had a positive attitude and was very supportive.

Gideon was a good man indeed, and I am so glad he was able to spend time in California as well.

I’m happy I got to know him. He was a kind and generous man.

Gideon Schein was a member of the Pasadena Village since April 2019. He was on the Board of Directors at the Parson’s Nose Theater. Gideon was a wonderful friend, warm, enthusiastic and interested in everything. He was also a cherished and very active participant of the 1619 discussion group and on December 4th, he even joined the 1619 discussion from his hospital room. He will be greatly missed. 

Gideon was a pillar in the AADMM community; passionate about our work, welcoming to new members.

Since I have known him, I never had a conversation with Gideon where he didn’t want an update on my daughter and her horse competitions and my son and his baseball. On the last troika I had with him, we both automatically knew to stay on after everybody else left to get caught up. I am really going to miss him.

Gideon was truly a leader in our industry.

Gideon was widely known for the depth and breadth of his expertise, as well as for his caring spirit, generosity and commitment to the success of others.
