BRAVMAN, Irving Irving "Shel" Bravman, Atlanta, GA, passed away Monday, November 27, 2017, at Piedmont Hospital. Born January 17, 1929, in Wilkes-Barre, PA, he was a graduate of Lafayette College for which he served as his class alumni chronicler for more than 50 years. He rose to the rank of captain in the United States Army. For many years, he was associated with the Bravman Company, Inc., a family-owned wholesale furniture and floor-covering distributor. In 1968, he relocated to Atlanta to join E.T. Barwick Carpet Mills, at the time the world's largest carpet manufacturer. Later, he created his own carpet representation company, which continued throughout the remainder of his life. An avid sports fan, he followed the Atlanta Falcons, the Atlanta Braves, and Lafayette College football. He especially looked forward to the annual Lafayette-Lehigh football game. In 2014, he took great pride in attending at Yankee Stadium, with his daughter, Susan, the 150th match-up between Lafayette and Lehigh, the longest college football rivalry in the country. Adding to the excitement was Lafayette's win. He was predeceased by his parents, Benjamin and Gertrude Bravman, and by his brother, Louis.
