He was predeceased by wife Irene S. Deitchman (née Scheinin); daughter-in-law Heidi Deitchman; sister Ida Perry; and parents Herman and Eva Deitchman. He grew up in Baltimore City very poor. He went to school but had to leave to help support his mother and sister. He later fell in love with his wife-to-be, Irene. When World War II started, he joined the army, trained to be a radio operator, and was stationed in the Philippines. After the war, he received his GED and started to work for Baltimore City. He married Irene on Jan. 29, 1947, and they were happily married for 64 years until her passing in 2011. He worked during the day, went to school at night at the University of Baltimore and received a Bachelor’s degree in accounting. He spent the next 44 years with Baltimore City, retiring in 1991 as chief of payroll. He was a loving husband and father, and made sure that his children grew up in a loving home where love and education were very important. He made sure that each day was special and would do anything for his children and his wife.
