Sad News – Burton Gintell, 30th April 2022

Dear Members,

It is with deep sadness to announce the passing of President Emeritus, Burton Gintell.

Those of you who had the pleasure to have met Burton will remember his cheerful and humorous nature, as well as his integrity, ingenuity and passion in all he undertook.

Burton was president for over 5 years and, together with Jaber Jallad, was pivotal to the American Club of the Riviera’s success from 2008. Together they dedicated considerable time and effort in running the Club and moving it to new heights.

We all have our personal memories of Burton. My personal memory of Burton is when I first became a member of the American Club of the Riviera is how incredibly welcoming he was. Making everyone feel welcome and included. He seemed to have that effect on everyone he met.

He will be missed by so many of us.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Jackie Pressman-Gintell.
