Arthur (Art) I. Friedman of Omaha passed away surrounded by his family on Sept. 5, at age 77. Services were held on Sept. 8 at Beth El Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Steven Abraham and Hazzan Michael Krausman.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Julius and Adele Friedman and brother-in-law Martin Gilinson.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Sheryl; daughters and sons-in-law, Holly and David Weill and Caren Friedman and Corey Greendale; grandchildren, Julia and Levi; sister, Pam Gilinson; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Charles and Kathleen Natkins; and nieces and nephews, Stacy, Hilarie, David, Jacob, and Zoe.

Art was born in Brooklyn, NY, and served with the US Air Force in Vietnam. He was a life-long Mets fan and lived in New York, DC, and Ohio before moving with his family to Omaha 35 years ago. His quick wit, dry sense of humor, and ability to navigate without GPS will be missed.
