Joel shore, industry rep

Joel shore, industry repFort Lauderdale, Fla. - Joel Shore, 84, whose career in the furniture industry began in the 1950s, died here on Jan. 24.
     Shore began working in furniture when he joined his father in New York representing J.L. Metz Furniture Co. in 1953. In 1971, Shore moved to Florida as a rep for Williams Furniture. Years later, he worked alongside his son, Ken, representing National Mount Airy, Weiman and Woodlee. Prior to his retirement, Shore repped for Royal Patina.
     Known for his service, professionalism and sense of humor, Shore was remembered for his amazing aptitude for numbers, colleagues said. It was not uncommon for him to remember the price of practically every piece in a huge showroom after walking through it only once or twice.
     Shore is survived by his wife, Joyce, and four children. Memorial donations may be made to the Broward Humane Society, American Cancer Society and Broward Hospice.
