Sheldon Paul Bindler, a retired New York City Police Officer, passed away on Thursday, November 18, 2021 in Vineland, NJ surrounded by his loving daughters after battling long term health issues. He was 73. Born April 29, 1948 in New York, NY to Aaron Bindler and Irene Lurie. He was the oldest of two children and is survived by his sister Renee Bindler of DelRay Beach, FL.
He worked as a New York City police officer in both Midtown North and Midtown South for over 20 years before retiring in 1987.
