Howard Friedman

Howard Friedman was born to Mary and Morris on January 18, 1942. He grew up in Brooklyn, NY, with much of his extended family on the same block, where he enjoyed stickball and learned to appreciate bagels.

Howard worked for DuPont for 25 years and moved to Delaware in 1971. He soon became active in Temple Beth El's Mens' Club, especially the breakfast committee. Introduced through a family friend, his wife followed him to Delaware.

First in his family to complete college, Howard loved learning and returned to school mid-career to complete a second degree in Library Science. In retirement, he was active at the Osher Life Long Learning Academy, as both a student and teacher. A docent at the Delaware Art Museum, he loved giving tours to children. He also volunteered at Nemours Hospital and the Grand.

Howard leaves to cherish his memory, his wife of 44 years, Phyllis (nee Fefferman); sons, Matthew, David, and Jeremy; sisters, Bernice Sloman (Al) and Mona Jacobs (Eli).

Funeral services will be 2:00 pm, Friday, April 21, 2017 at Schoenberg Memorial Chapel, 519 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809. Shiva will be observed 8:30 pm, Saturday, April 22 and 7:00 pm, Sunday, April 23 at the late residence. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Temple Beth El Education Fund, 301 Possum Park Road, Newark, DE 19711.
