Obituary

On the morning of December 3, 1926, Henry Feltman was born into this world. His parents were Sophie (Bezner) and Henry Feltman. He was the fourth child born into this family following a half sister, Cecil (Elgart), Georgette (Meissner), Richard, and 3 years after Henry was born, a sister, Dorothea (Richardson). The family lived in Bellerose, (Long Island), New York. Henry was always a soft spoken and loving friend to all. Math was his favorite subject. English, his worst. When World War II broke out, Richard enlisted in the Army Air Corp. Wanting to be like his brother, at 19 years of age, he enlisted in the Navy as an electrician. After the war, Henry attended Hofstra University with a major in Business Administration. He played tennis in college and as the years went by he became an even more avid player, stopping play when he was only 80 years old. After graduation, he became a Systems Analyst for Nassau Community College where he worked until he retired in 1992. During these years, Henry had been enamored with the girl next door, Nancy Mae McDonald (now deceased). On February 12, 1971, Henry and Nancy married. Although their permanent residence was in Bellerose, they bought a townhome in Oronoque Village, Stratford, Connecticut to be near Nancy’s parents. Later, they moved to Ormond Beach, Florida, where they spent many happy years with friends, many of whom they knew from New York. He spent a great deal of his retirement years competing in tennis tournaments and playing duplicate bridge. His love of this game resulted in becoming an ACBL Golden Age Master. On December 25, 2020, Uncle Henry passed away at home in Mount Dora, Florida. His cremated remains will be buried next to his beloved Nancy in the Jacksonville National Cemetery. Services will be arranged at a later date. In lieu of flowers or donations, simply appreciating those who surround you and forgiving and loving them unconditionally would be the greatest gift you could give. Throughout his 94 years, Uncle Henry was a gentleman to all and will be remembered by his nieces, nephews and friends for this kindness. It’s what made him everyone’s favorite uncle. His family and everyone who knew him will miss him very much.
