Edwin Sperber, a 'force' in business and philanthropy, dies at 98

Edwin H. Sperber, the ubiquitous Albany business presence behind Huck Finn’s Warehouse and other ventures, was also a quietly effective philanthropist who advocated for kidney donations after giving one of his own to his daughter. He was, in his 98 years, more than just a force.

“He was the force,” said his son, Jeffrey. “He impacted so many people, but nobody ever knew he was doing it. . . . He liked helping people that needed it out of the limelight.” 
 
The longtime businessman and benefactor died Sunday at age 98 in his Albany home, surrounded by family, after suffering a fall and subsequent decline.
