Robert Peter Beshar, 86, died peacefully at home in Somers, New York on April 16, 2014…In 1993, Bob became President of his family’s rug and antiques business, Beshar’s, in New York City. Bob’s interests were varied and intense. A love of decorative arts — bronzes, china, jewelry, clocks. He liked to say: “the hand shapes the mind.” Reading novels late into the night — convinced there was more truth in fiction than in non-fiction. Telling a great story over dinner and challenging children, grandchildren and startled guests to “sing for their supper.”  – NYTimes Obituary
