CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston lost an institution this weekend. Saul Krawcheck died Friday and was buried on Monday.

During his long lifetime, he owned a popular clothing store on King Street, Jack Krawcheck`s.

He was an avid sailor, as well as an actor and singer at the Dock Street Theatre.

Krawcheck was a gentle man and a true gentleman. He was a wonderful storyteller who loved people and they in turn loved him right back. He was a renaissance man and our condolences tonight to his family.

Saul Krawcheck was 86, and all of us who had the pleasure of his company will miss him greatly.
