Jack's Oyster House patriarch and longtime owner Arnold Rosenstein died Sunday morning at the age of 94.

Rosenstein, who took over the 104-year-old Albany restaurant from his father, Jack, in the 1950s, was a fixture at the historic eatery in the Capitol's shadow up until the age of 90, said his son and current Jack's Oyster House owner, Brad Rosenstein.

"He was very genteel and very giving and just loved people," said his son. "Just a gem of a guy."

Arnold Rosenstein graduated from Albany Academy in 1939 and Cornell University's hotel school in 1943, before serving as an infintryman in Germany during World War II. Rosenstein wanted to go into the law like his uncle, Isadore Taub, and went to Albany Law School on the G.I. Bill. But he was an attorney only briefly before deciding to work in his father's restaurant. Arnold's brother, Marvin, helped run the business. But after Marvin's departure to Florida, Arnold's son, Brad, took over restaurant-assisting duties in 1984.

In recent years, Arnold Rosenstein lived at the Loudonville Home for Adults. He is predeceased by his wife, Janet, and leaves another son, Dr. Harry Rosenstein, and two grandchildren.

Services will be private. And in keeping with a Jack's Oyster House tradition, the restaurant will not close in the wake of Rosenstein's passing. The younger Rosenstein said the oyster house closed once for the founder, his grandfather's, funeral and they don't think Jack Rosenstein would have approved.

"We're going to honor him," said Brad Rosenstein of his father. "We like to think one of the main reasons we've been in business is that every decision as been based on what's best for our guests."
