Udell, Howard Robert.
Howard Robert Udell, age 72, passed away on August 2, 2013. Beloved husband and soul mate of Judith for 49 years. Cherished father to Jeffrey and Andrew; father-in-law to Lucy and Sheryl; and "Papa" to grandchildren Micaela, Nina, Max, Alec, Adam, and Daniela. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he graduated from Hunter College and NYU School of Law. After 15 years in private practice at the law firm Millard Green & Udell, in 1979 he assumed the role of General Counsel to the pharmaceutical company now known as Purdue Pharma, where he remained for 30 years. Trusted and wise counselor and friend, known for his character, integrity, sagacity and sense of humor, he was also active in civic life, and served on the board of Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University for over 25 years. In 2009, he co-founded the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center (CVLC), which provides free legal services to hundreds of veterans each year. Until his untimely death this week, he served on CVLC's board and regularly counseled veterans. Donations in his memory to the CVLC will be greatly appreciated.
