Arthur Friedman Obituary

Arthur Friedman, 76, of Liberty Township passed away on February 24, surrounded by his family.  Art was born on April 25, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois to Maurice and Edna Friedman.  He grew up in the Chicago area and graduated from Niles East High School in 1965, then attended Bradley University and the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy.  Art worked as a pharmacist in the Youngstown area for over forty years.

In 1972, Art married his wife, Phyllis, who he met while they were working as social workers in Chicago.  Art and Phyllis returned to Youngstown where Phyllis grew up to raise their children. The couple were married for 51 years.  

Art was an active member of the local Jewish community, including serving as co-president of Temple El Emeth.  After his retirement, he volunteered his time with Hospice of the Valley, became an avid bridge player, and made good friends with “the guys” at Cardiac Rehab.  Art loved photography, tinkering around his house, and gardening.

More than anything, Art cherished his family, and he never hesitated to tell his children and grandchildren how much he loved them and how proud he was of their accomplishments.  He was preceded in death by his parents and in-laws, Sol and Rae Karner.  He is survived by his wife Phyllis, children Matthew Friedman (Katherine) of Los Angeles, Michael Friedman of Kailua-Kona, HI, and Lauren Klein (Andrew) of Shaker Heights, and grandchildren Rachel and Jonah Klein, Ziva, Liora, and Shira Friedman.  He is also survived by sisters Barbara Horn (Craig) and Ronna Baron (Avery), both of Chicago, as well as several nieces, nephews, and other friends and family.

Services will be held at 1:00pm, Monday, February 26th in Itt's Memorial Chapel, Anshe Emeth Cemetery, 588 Granada Ave. Youngstown 44505 with calling hours 1/2 hour prior to service in cemetery chapel.                

Donations in his memory can be made to Hospice of Valley or Temple El Emeth.
