He was the husband of the late Jane Rosenblatt (Solomon). He was born on Sept. 3, 1926, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of the late Israel and Alice Rosenblatt. He grew up in Brooklyn and served his country during World War II as a tank driver in Germany.

After the war, he received his degree in Chemical Engineering from the City College of New York. He had a long and successful career with Allied Chemical Co. and Witco Corp.

He particularly treasured his grandchildren: Sharon Rosenblatt (Adam Bovilsky); Karen Rosenblatt (Aldo Garcia); Alanna Rosenblatt; Rachel Rokes and Alecia Rokes (Brian Gourlay); as well as his great-grandson Eli Bovilsky.
