Obituary

Sol Leon Resnik, 93, of Deerfield Beach, FL, passed away peacefully on November 11th, 2023, in Boca Raton Florida. He was born to Fannie Priest Resnik, and Bezalel Nathan Resnik in Providence Rhode Island.

He was a childhood polio survivor, a graduate of Classical High School, and the University of Rhode Island.

In 1954 he earned his MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, married Esther Petersohn, and returned to Rhode Island to join his father in the ribbon and emblem business. Together with his son David, he built Emblem & Badge into a large awards producer that even manufactured the Emmy Awards.

A world traveler who loved adventure, dogs, and being with family, he was a philanthropist, skilled amateur photographer, and collector of Judaica and folk art. He was known for his inventions, design, and mechanical skills, but was most proud that he could build, fix, or repair anything. 

Sol’s multiple business endeavors included the development of the old Rhode Island Arena on North Main Street in Providence into a nightclub-tennis court entertainment complex, Resnik Realty commercial and industrial mill space, and the Polar Cap Ice company. 

Retiring to Florida, he became a regular member of B’nai Torah Congregation’s morning minyan. He is survived by his sister, Beverly Blazar, and her husband, Andrew Blazer, by Esther, his wife of 69 years, son, David Resnik, daughter, Marcia Lome, and her husband, Steven Lome, daughter Linda Resnik, and her husband Edward Martin, and grandchildren, Joshua Resnik, Alissa Rubin, Jonathan Lome, Brian Lome, Hannah Mellion, and Eliza Mellion, and five great-grandchildren: Aidan, Ezra, Olivia, Ava, and Leah.
