Morris Zuckerman, WWII veteran and actor, dies at 103
A life-long military man, it wasn’t until he was in his 60s before Morris Zuckerman found his second calling: acting.
He appeared in the movies “Scarface’’ and “The Mean Season,’’ as well as in commercials and on TV shows.
“He was a strong military man,” said his daughter Yvette Kintz. “But acting gave him a purpose, it made him young-minded.”
Zuckerman died Dec. 7 at his home in Coral Gables. He was 103.
He was born in New Jersey to Russian immigrants, but lived in Key West and Miami during the Depression. He wanted to be a dentist, but unable to afford college tuition, got a job selling shoes.
