    Arnold “Arnie” Irwin Beskind, 89, died November 9, 2017 after a brief illness. Arnie was born in Brooklyn, NY on August 3, 1928 to Dorothy and Samuel Beskind. The youngest of three children, he is a 1946 graduate of Brooklyn Technical High School where he studied culinary arts. He began working as a chef in and around New York City. Arnie was a Corporal in the US Army, stationed in Japan during the Korean War. After the war, he returned to Brooklyn, began working at Nathan’s Hot Dogs in Coney Island, NY and married his sweetheart, Sandra Tasman. In 1962, they had their first child, Stacy and in 1966, after moving to Atlanta, their second child, a son, Myles. When he moved to Atlanta, Arnie had a long career in the wholesale ladies’ accessories business. Arnie’s Handbag Sales became a must attend event for North Atlanta women during the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Arnie retired from sales and worked for Kroger at Toco Hills for many years.
