February 19, 1926 - June 22, 2020
Hal Friedman, age 94, of Floral Park, NY, formerly of Pembroke Pines, FL, passed away on Monday, June 22, 2020.
Hal was an example to all who knew him, living his life with kindness, compassion and generosity. He was an extraordinary father, imparting wisdom and life lessons that were never forgotten and often shared with the generations that followed. He will be greatly missed by his family.
Born in New York, NY on February 19, 1926, he was the son of the late Albert and Henrietta (Dubinsky) Friedman. Hal, one of the Greatest Generation, proudly served in the U.S. Army Air Force as an aerial gunner with the 896th Bomber Squadron during World War II, stationed on the island on Saipan.
He worked as a representative for a silk screen manufacturing company. Hal was an active golfer, competing in various tournaments over the years.
In addition to his parents, Hal was preceded in death by his wife, Muriel (Blauweiss) Friedman. Hal was twice blessed, spending an additional 29 years with his loving partner, Elaine Schneider. Never spending more than two days apart, Elaine passed away after a brief illness, on the same day as Hal. He is survived by his son, Martin Friedman (Carolyn); grandchildren, Todd Phelan (Nellie) and Kimberly Seymour (Greg); and great grandchildren, Henry Phelan, Evelyn and Bennett Seymour.
All services will be held privately.
