Full Name: Myron P. Berman
Date of Death: Monday, July 17, 2023
Myron P. Berman passed away July 17, 2023 at his long-time home in Park Ridge, New Jersey.
Myron was born July 25, 1931, the only child of Robert and Bertha Berman. He lived his entire youth in The Bronx, but regularly crossed the pedestrian bridge over the Harlem River to see his Giants at the Polo Grounds. In 1957, he married Roslyn Alberg and they were devoted to each other for almost 65 years, until her passing in 2022. Myron provided Roz with the most loving care possible during her final years.
Myron attended Stuyvesant High School, City College of New York and Fordham Law School. He had a long career as a CPA and attorney, during which he was beloved by his clients, many of whom became close friends. He continued to work, commuting by car to Manhattan, into his 90s. Myron’s facility with math was legendary. He loved to do calculations by hand faster than the opposing lawyer could do them with a calculator.
Myron is survived by his daughter, Marla Lewitus, and her husband Ricardo; son, Ira Berman, and his wife Helen Borrello; grandchildren Polly Berman, Justin Lewitus and Annie Berman; and nieces and nephews Iris, Clifford, Ina, Steven and Sandi and their families. Myron loved Roz’s extended family and became the “godfather” to the whole Alberg clan.
The family was blessed to have the most loving, expert caregiver imaginable in Sandra Agnitevi, who began caring for Roz and then gracefully moved to caring for Myron. Sandra was assisted in the final few years by Yolanda Heber.
The family will observe Shiva at 14 King Road, Park Ridge, NJ 07656 on Wednesday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm, Thursday, July 20 from 1:00-4:00 pm and 7:00-9:00 pm, and on Friday, July 21 from 1:00-4:00 pm. The family requests that those wishing to make a donation in Myron’s memory donate to an organization that supports individuals with dementia and their families, to honor Roz and her memory.
