Obituary of Nathaniel Wallach
In Loving memory of Nathaniel Wallach
Nathaniel (Nat) Wallach passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 94 on May 25, 2019 at Mountainview Gardens, Pompton Plains, NJ. He was born on December 19, 1924 in Brooklyn, NY to Max and Rose (Zimmerman) Wallach. Nat survived by two sons, Daniel and Jeffrey, daughter Pamela, and four grandchildren.
Nathaniel grew up in Brooklyn, NY and helped his mother to support his family after his father passed away. He joined the Army in 1943 and laid communications wire for the war effort until 1946. He returned home and earned his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from NYU. He married Evelyn Friedenberg in 1951. They remained married for 56 years until the time of Evelyn's passing in November 2007. They moved to Orangeburg, NY in 1959 and raised their family there. Nathaniel retired from Ebasco Construction, Inc., New York, NY, where he worked as a Mechanical Engineer. Eventually he and Evelyn moved to Cedar Crest Village, a Senior Living community in Pompton Plains, NJ. A few years after Evelyn's passing, he met Norma Meyers, who was his companion for 8 years.
Nathaniel had a passion for anything having to do with music or art. He took up the guitar at the age of 80. In his senior days he loved to draw and paint. He had an active curiosity for the world and never ceased to want to learn more. With a glint in his eye, he had a well-honed sense of humor.
