OBITUARY

Edward Rothman

June 2, 1929October 22, 2021

Rothman, Edward E. Canton, MA, age 92, died at his home on Oct 22, 2021. Beloved husband of Ilse Rothman for 62 years.

He was a devoted and loving father to Johanna Rothman and Ellen Greene. Known as Grampy to his four grandchildren, Benjamin Greene, Erica Greene, Shaina Tuleja and Naomi Druy, he was thrilled to see them grow and share in their accomplishments. He laughed with and took great pride in his three great-grandchildren.

An unusual man of his times, he chose to balance his home and work life. As an executive in the clothing manufacturing business, he coached many people in their quest to get good jobs and succeed. We would now say he paid it forward.

An avid duplicate bridge player, he taught other people to enjoy and play a good game. (He often said Ilse was his best partner.) He read and learned throughout his lifetime, never using the excuse that he was “too old.”

There will be a brief memorial service on Monday, Oct. 25 at Ahavath Torah Congregation in Stoughton at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the charity of your choice, or to the Scholarship Fund at Orchard Cove, 1 Del Pond Drive, Canton, MA 02021.

I was one of Ed's bridge partners
Although a much superior player than me he
always took the time to improve my game
I was always impressed by Ed's attitude toward
life even during his final days
He will be missed by me and all members
of the bridge club
May God grant him eternal peace
