Nathan J. Waldman, Esq. passed away peacefully in his Manhattan home Wednesday morning, June 6.
He is survived by his two sons, Scott Waldman, a computer science Public School teacher in Queens, NY and Dr. Jonathan Waldman of Albany, NY. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Nina Kurtis Waldman. Born in Munkacs, Czechoslovakia, he arrived in New York harbor on the last boat from Trieste on the eve of WWII. Much of his family was lost in the Holocaust. He came to our shores without a word of English and ultimately was able to put himself through City College and later, Columbia Law School. It was the heyday of Ed Koch, William Kunstler and the like. He provided legal services to many clients of varied degrees of notoriety and fame: the likes of Lady Day, Vitas Gerulaitis and the Incredible Hulk. But what he became most involved with was The International Typeface Corporation, at a time when typefaces were licensed to early computer platforms and before they were copied by MS from Apple and Adobe. He is most remembered for his love of tennis, his Yiddish wisdom and tremendous capacity to tell many fabulous stories and jokes. The funeral and the days of mourning will be in Woodstock, NY. The funeral will be at Lasher Funeral Home, 100 Tinker Street, Woodstock on Friday, June 8th, 2018 at 10am.
