Mervyn A. (Merv) Holtzman, 80, of Clifton, succumbed after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer on Sunday, February 26, 2023. He was born in Englewood, NJ on June 25, 1942.
Merv was predeceased by brother Dr. Herbert Holtzman (2017), wife Lois (2013), mother Fay (1991), and father Mac (1986), and is survived by loving daughter Dr. Wendy Morris, precious grandson Samuel Morris, both of Tenafly, his dear sister-in-law Chickie Holtzman, of Florida, as well as devoted nieces Amy Claman and Jill Eisenberg and their families. He is also survived by two dear friends of over 70 years: Michael Eisenberg (and wife Gail) of Florham Park, and Sherman Malech (and wife Sheryl) of Nanuet, NY.
Merv spent a lifetime working in menswear, having taken over the family business, Mac & Dave’s Menswear, in Englewood, which later became M For Men. After leaving Englewood in 1974, he worked in several retail locations in Paramus before retiring in 2017. In 1996, Merv joined his wife in working for Richard Nader Entertainment, producers of Doo-wop concerts: a passion he and Lois shared that was a true joy for them both. They became great friends along the way with peers, customers, and entertainers that Merv has stayed in touch with over the years.
