Obituaries for January 19


Jerome Boden

Jerome Boden died Dec. 29 after a battle with cancer.
Boden was a consummate family man. His dedication to his wife of 56 years and his children, grandchildren and extended family formed the nucleus of his life.

Boden received an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, master’s degree in industrial engineering and statistics and a Ph.D. in industrial engineering. He spent his working career at Western Electric, Martin Marietta and the Coast Guard.

His hobbies included playing the trumpet and listening to jazz, dancing, playing chess and listening to audiobooks. However, all his activities were a distant second to his love for and commitment to his family.
He is survived by his wife, Sue; his four children, Robin (Rich Skolnik), Barry (Rachel Gafni), Steven (Karen) and Louise (Zac Tolin); eight grandchildren and his brother, Arthur. He will be remembered by all the people whose lives he touched as an extremely gentle, humble and giving individual.
