  • Steven J. Pomerantz, a building contractor who was an emergency medical technician with the Montauk Fire Department for 15 years, died at home in Montauk on March 16. The cause was cancer, from which he had suffered for several years, his brother David Pomerantz said.

    He was “a very, very giving person,” David Pomerantz said. “Besides his work in the community and all the building projects he left behind, he would drop whatever he was doing to help anybody at any time.”
