Paul H. Guth Obituary
March 15, 1927 - July 4, 2017 Paul was born to Ben and Syd (Fischer) Guth in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in Manhattan. He attended NYU and received his medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine in 1949. While completing his training in gastroenterology at Temple University, he met Rachael Klonymus. They married in 1953 in Philadelphia. Paul and Rachael moved to Southern California in 1957, beginning his successful 40-year career in academic medicine. He trained hundreds of scientists and GI fellows during his career at the West LA VA Medical Center, and presented at conferences around the world. In retirement, Paul devoted his time to Rachael and family, enjoying travel, tennis and swimming as well as studying Judaism and philosophy. Paul was patient, understanding and non-judgmental: an inspiration and role model to family, friends and colleagues. We lovingly remember Paul as the deeply devoted husband to Rachael, father to David (Diana), Eve (Ed Livingston), Esther (Helmut Fortunato) and Naomi (Robert Ades), grandfather to Sarah, Kenny and Liz Livingston, Ethan and Olivia Fortunato, and Lauren Ades, brother of Lloyd Guth, and cousin of Roni and Vicki Fischer. Funeral service will be held Sunday, July 9, 2017, 11 a.m., at Eden Memorial Park, 11500 Sepulveda Blvd., Mission Hills, CA 91345. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Valley Beth Shalom (818-788-6000) or Howard University College of Medicine (202-806-5677).
