J. Thomas Ungerleider Obituary
March 3, 1931 - September 19, 2016 Tom left us this week but with an indelible memory of his pioneering work and endearing sense of humor. As Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA for 4 decades, he treated countless patients with drug abuse problems, pioneered early research on medical marijuana, served on President Nixon's National Commission on Marijuana, and wrote extensively on LSD and other psychotropic drugs. He was adored as a husband to Dorothy, father to John and Shoshana, grandfather to Jacob, Isaiah, Simcha, David, Aidenne, and Yaakov, and great-grandfather to their 14. Funeral services will be at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park at 2 p.m. on Thurs. Sept. 22. A memory sharing event will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept 25 at the family home in Encino. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the programs of your choice for Alzheimer's Disease research.
