Larry Shindelman died on August 19, 2019, at the age of 86. Many times over the past
few years, he said "I won't die young, I won't die poor, and I won't die unhappy."
Larry was born in Brooklyn and grew up in New Jersey and the Bronx. During his life, he
visited 55 different countries, including two years in the Air Force in Korea and Japan at
the end of the Korean war. He enjoyed himself wherever he was, and during our 53
years of marriage, I had a good time too.
By the time we moved to Riderwood, a retirement community in Silver Spring, Maryland,
Larry realized that his health was in decline, but he still managed to keep an upbeat
outlook on life, even in the face of Trumpworld and climate change. He eventually died
of congestive heart failure, complicated by multiple conditions that resulted from many
years of leading the good life.
I'm his wife, Jill, and I've obviously survived him. He is also survived by his niece,
Michele, his nephews Bob and David, and his great-nieces Sarah, Jasmine, and Maya,
and his great-nephew Robin. We will all miss him terribly.
