Philip Nochumowitz


On November 4, Philip Nochumowitz of Baltimore at 103. He is survived by daughter Diane Nochumowitz (Nathan) Torn; sisters-in-law Lillian Siegel, Jane Berger and Sylvia Finglass; and grandchildren Shoshana Torn, Max Torn and Jaclyn Torn. He was predeceased by his wife, Mildred Nochumowitz (née Finglass); his brothers, Fred (Mitzi) Nochumowitz and Irvin (Marlene) Nochumowitz; brothers-in-law Raymond Siegel, Martin Berger, Harold Rosen and Sanford Finglass; sister-in-law Molly Rosen; and his parents, David and Anna Nochumowitz.

Phil was a true partner with his beloved Mildred for 66 years of marriage. He would often say that they had an incredible journey through life together. After Mildred’s passing in 2016, Phil enjoyed his life as a proud Jew. He attended minyan daily and even led services during the year after Mildred passed away.

A proud veteran of World War II, he earned many medals, including the Bronze Star. The St. John’s Lodge honored him for his 80-plus years with the Masons.

Phil’s belief in tradition and faith followed him all the days of his life. It brought him joy (pre-Shabbat calls) and comfort in his last few days. His family is so proud of Phil’s character and plan on continuing his legacy.
