Sheldon Minster, a senior account executive with Los Angeles, California-based distributor Jack Nadel International (PPAI 107145, D12), passed away on June 1. He was 84.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Minster moved to Los Angeles after high school. He attended UCLA and served in Korea with the U.S. Army. Later, after a few career changes, he joined Jack Nadel International, where he spent most of his career working out of the company’s Culver City, California, office. He was a top salesperson at the company and is remembered by co-workers for his sense of humor and his love of family and deli food.

Minster is survived by his wife Linda, son Sam and grandchildren Lauren and Shane.
