Jay Friedman

Jay Friedman, 88, died Nov. 20, 2010, at Cascade House in Enumclaw.

He was born March 29, 1922, in Seattle to Dr. Harry and Florence Ayres Friedman. He was a graduate of Garfield High School and the University of Washington. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II. After his war service, he returned to Seattle. In 1950 he married Joan Youdene and they settled on Mercer Island to raise their family. In 1970, they moved to a farm in Enumclaw where he raised cattle, a passion that endured for nearly 30 years. He had many interests from flying to skiing and restoring old tractors. He had a strong interest in Pacific Northwest history, atmospheric science, genealogy and was something of an Anglophile. He was a member of the Mount Baker Ski Patrol after the war and a member of the Ancient Skiers. He was active in the Washington Polled Hereford Association and the Belted Galloway Association. He was also a founding member of the Rainier 2 Cylinder Club.

He is survived by son Peter Friedman and wife Betsy of Boise, Idaho; daughters Julie and Jane of Seattle; and brother Louis and wife Anita of Mercer Island. His wife Joan preceded him in death in 1980.

Services took place Dec. 12, 2010, at Hills of Eternity Cemetery in Seattle.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, remembrances be made to the Jewish Family Services or a local food bank

Services were directed by Weeks’ Enumclaw Funeral Home.
