BLOOM--William H., September 19, 2013. Son of the late Samuel and Anna (Pinsker) Bloom of Granville, NY, preceded in death by his dear wife, Barbara, and sister Shirley. Survived by four children, 10 grandchildren, and loving children-in-law, friends and cousins. Alumnus of Green Mountain College, Union College and University of Buffalo Medical School. Veteran of WWII and Korean War. After training at NYU and Mt. Sinai he was a neurosurgeon for 40 years on Long Island. Generous, with a gift for lifelong friendship, he was also heartened by the many lives he saved. Athletic, musical, and artistic, he loved writing and encouraged others to expand their talents as well. This world is a better place for his having been part of it.
