Friedlander, Paul R. 88 of Absecon, left us on Saturday February 16, 2019 to join his wife Evelyn of 46 years in eternal life. He was the son of Albert and Pearl (Doucette) Friedlander and
was born in Galloway Township NJ.
He spent most of his life in the Absecon/Galloway area and was a graduate of Pleasantville HS class of 1949. Paul proudly served in the US Navy from 1951-1955 during the Korean Conflict where he honed his skills as an Aviation Machinist/Mechanic. He was a member of the Absecon VFW Post #9462 and Lifetime Member of the Charles A. Hammell Legion Post #28 in
Absecon for over 60 years.

Prior to this he worked for the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Line as a Bridge Operator, and as an Auto Mechanic even opening his own business named “Paul’s Auto”. Repairing cars and restoring antique classic cars was truly Paul’s passion, particularly Fords.
