Jerome Katz

Jerome Katz passed away peacefully on April 28, 2013, Lag BaOmer. Born in Seattle on Oct 12, 1930 to Freida and Max Katz, he graduated cum laude from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy. A proud ROTC graduate and Korean War Veteran, Jerry married Rita Shulman Katz, to whom he was devoted throughout 55 years of loving marriage. Together they raised three daughters, Renee (Eric), Cindy (David) and Julie (Andrew). A dedicated pharmacist who owned and operated Jerry's Garden Pharmacy for 40 years, he was also a talented musician and loving father. He was deeply committed to his Jewish community and particularly delighted in his grandchildren Joshua, Leora, Elie, Hana and Nathan. His gentle, solid presence will be greatly missed.
