:"This article is about the American lawyer, for the British hedge fund executive see Stanley Fink (finance)."Stanley Fink (February 6, 1936 Brooklyn, New York City - March 4, 1997 Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts) was an American Lawyer and politician.

Life

He attended New Utrecht High School and graduated from Brooklyn College in 1956. He received a law degree from New York University School of Law in 1959.

He then joined the U.S. Air Force, serving in England as a commissioned second lieutenant with the Judge Advocate General's office. He was discharged in 1962 as a captain.

He returned to Brooklyn, where he practiced law and became increasingly involved in community and civic affairs. In 1968, he was hired as chief counsel for the Assembly's Committee on Mental Hygiene.

He was a Democratic member from Kings County of the New York State Assembly from 1969 to 1986, was majority leader in 1977 and 1978, and Speaker from 1979 to 1986.

In 1986, he decided not to seek re-election, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family and earn more money in the private sector. He joined Bower & Gardner, a Manhattan law firm, and was senior vice president for regulatory and Government affairs for NYNEX at the time of his death.

He died at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston of heart failure. He had been in failing health since late January, when he underwent surgery for a recurrence of cancer. He was buried at Mt. Ararat Cemetery, Long Island, N.Y.

He was married to Judith, and they had two sons: Marc Fink and Keith Fink.
