Burt Federman of Westboro, formerly of Brockton, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2021, at the age of 96. Beloved husband of the late Diana Federman, father of Ilyse Gottlieb, and her husband Ross, Suzanne Eagle, and her husband David, and grandfather of Jeremy Gottlieb and his husband Francis, Michael Eagle and his wife Jaclyn and Brandon Eagle. Burt was a decorated World War II veteran, having served as a radio operator from 1942-1946 in the 121st Tank Battalion and earning a Bronze Star for his heroism. After his time as an Army staff sergeant, Burt went on to graduate Suma Cum Laude from Northeastern University and began his career as a CPA. He then went on to start a family, marrying the love of his life, Diana, and raising two loving daughters, Ilyse and Suzanne. Although he was a gifted accountant, Burt's true passion was comedy. He would endlessly entertain his family members, and never passed up an opportunity to emcee a community event. Burt had a zest for life, always finding a way to make the people around him laugh, right until the very end. There was nothing Burt loved more than his family, often calling his daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren multiple times a day, sometimes just to check in, other times to complain about a Boston sports loss. The family will be holding a private burial. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Association of America.

“Kiss your cousin Burton”. I don’t know who told me to give my mom, Muriel Federman’s wonderful cousin a kiss ... it might have been Burton himself. Although I haven’t seen him in many years, I have many fond memories of him and Diana. Always a jokester, Cousin Burton made me laugh. What a great guy. My condolences to Ilyse and Suzanne and to all who were fortunate enough to have Burton in their lives. May his name be a blessing.

Mr. Federman,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army during WW II and for being a member of the Greatest Generation. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

So sorry to hear about Burt. Always a kind word, a joke, a hug, a big smile, a big cigar.

Burt was an amazing guy. He use to frequent the Italian kitchen in Brockton where I worked he always was so pleasant and was quick with a joke to make you laugh.

Dear Federman Family- I just learned of Burt's passing. My mother ,Jean Roetter was also a resident of the Willows.I was visiting my Mom and met Burt right after he arrived at The Willows. He had us both laughing within minutes as he regaled us with his stories.What a lovely spirit he had. I always managed to find him for a quick hello when I visited my Mom. Even after she passed I checked in to see how he was doing.He was an inspiration. Sending my deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers.
