Thomas Friedman

May 25, 1935 — August 26, 2020


Thomas E. Friedman, 85, of Uniontown, Ohio passed away peacefully, August 26, 2020 while in his home, surrounded by his family, good friend, Paul Woods, good friends, as well as neighbors, Tom and Shirley Kurtz, and Pastor David Conrad.

He was born in Akron, Ohio, May 25, 1935 to Nicholas J. Friedman and Marie A. Metz Friedman.

Together with his parents, preceding Tom in death is his son, Jeffrey Friedman; brother, Nicholas Friedman, Jr.; sisters, Esther Hughes, Ruth Stone, Elsie Oliver, and Deloris Mickley.

Tom will be missed by those who survive; his wife of 66 years, Carol Friedman of Uniontown; daughter, Sandy (Jeff) Harris of Uniontown; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews; friends, Pastor Dwayne Ray and wife Kathy, Ted and Mavine Thorn, Rich Nisley, Gary Smith, Jim Shelton, and many more.

After 42 years of service, working as a paint and latex operator, Tom retired from General Tire.
