Harvey Paul Friedman

Harvey Paul Friedman, December 31, 1935 – July 5, 2024

Beloved husband of the late Carol Chazen Friedman.  Dear brother of Norman (the late Dina) Friedman.  Loving uncle of Beth Ann, Lisa, Dan, Michael, Jed and (Gaby).

Harvey was born in New York, New York and worked his way westward receiving his PhD from the University of Kansas.  He eventually settled in St. Louis and served as a Professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis for forty years.  Shortly after arriving in St. Louis he attended a mixer at the Jewish Community Center and it was there that he caught the eye of a young co-ed.  It was love at first sight and he and Carol were constant companions until her passing in 2011.

Harvey was a beloved and respected mentor and educator.  He never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a hand or to brighten spirits by telling one of his many jokes.  He will be missed by his family and many friends.
