Bernard M. Friedman
FRIEDMAN: Bernard M. Friedman, age 93, died peacefully after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. A Pittsburgher his whole life, he had a sense of humor and a joie de vivre that he passed on to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, extended family and friends. He will be missed by his wife, Vitie; his children: Daniel, Janet and Marty Seltman, Pamela z”l and Juan Vazquez, Erica, Jack and Karen, and Sally; his grandchildren: O.E. Zelmanovich and Rayden Sorock, Jake and Cortney Seltman, Hillary Friedman and Max Friedman; his great-grandchildren evoked his smiles until his last day: Noah, Ari and Isaiah Seltman, and Calder Sorock. Bernie was a wordsmith, whether completing The New York Times crossword puzzles in ink, running political campaigns, writing advertising jingles and copy, or creating poems and songs for family events. He invested his time and energy in the technologies of his day, radio, TV and cable. He loved playing tennis, golf, chess, bridge and poker. He was an avid skier and sailor. The family wants to thank everyone who provided loving care for Bernie. Donations can be made to Ahava Memory Care Unity, c/o JAA, 200 JHF Drive, Pittsburgh PA 15217.
