Harvey Wasserman, age 75 of Vernon, passed away on Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 following a courageous eighteen month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born in Brooklyn to Mildred (Fried) and the late Kurt Wasserman, Harvey lived in Ringwood, NJ, graduating from Lakeland High School. He then went on to earn his BS at University of Arizona. Following graduation, Harvey moved to Syracuse with his wife and also resided in Highland Park before settling in Vernon many years ago.
Harvey was an entrepreneur at heart, running his own company and then joining forces with Diamond Chemical as Vice President of Sales.
An avid outdoorsman, Harvey enjoyed traveling, fishing, hunting, ham radio, and pretty much anything that involved being outside or near water. He loved being with his friends and attending family parties, especially for the food. He was always known to put his family first.
Predeceased by his father, Harvey is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Linda (Rosenfeld) Wasserman; daughters Robin DeAngelo of Kinnelon and Kim Fishman and her husband Ian of Sparta; grandchildren Stephanie, Dylan, Jake, Allie, and Alex; brother Pinchas Wasserman of Lakewood; sisters Gail Connors and Ann Wasserman; and mother Mildred Wasserman, all of Ringwood. He is also survived by his many relatives and loving friends.
