Fine Dead at 86

One of Savannah's most respected businessmen of the last century has died. Jake Fine returned from military duty in World War II and took over the family business on Broughton Street, Fine's Department Store. He was president of Fine's until his retirement in 1986.

The Metter native was very active in Savannah's civic affairs, from the Arts Association and Savannah Symphony to the chamber of commerce and the Downtown Merchants Association.

Jake Fine died just two days past his 86th birthday.
