Allan S. Friedland Esq. passed away on Sunday, October 29, 2023, lovingly surrounded by his family at home. He was born on March 25, 1955 to Jack and Annette Friedland.
Allan was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He loved to spend time in the mountains skiing, biking, and hiking with his wife, Barbara, and his children, Jesse and Julien.
Born in Merion, Pennsylvania, Allan attended the Haverford School and worked in his grandfather’s supermarket chain, Food Fair. He later attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he developed his love for the outdoors. He was a member of the Outing Club, where he met his wife Barbara. His high school job at Food Fair later inspired him to attend the Delaware Law School of Widener University, focusing on employee benefits, where he graduated in 1982. He worked as a respected lawyer for 38 years before retiring in 2020.
Allan and Barbara were married on January 28, 1984. They purposefully married in the winter, not concerned with precarious driving conditions, so they could go skiing on their honeymoon! They raised their family in Connecticut, and enjoyed summers and winters in Vermont.
Allan had numerous hobbies. He was a model train enthusiast, avid pinball player, and Philadelphia sports fan. He especially loved watching the Eagles. In his community, Allan was the Executive Officer of the Simsbury Grange.
In lieu of flowers, the Friedland Family is asking to please consider a memorial contribution to the Vermont Forest Cemetery PO Box 711 Montpelier, VT 05601 or to the Adirondack Mountain Club PO Box 4390 Queensbury, NY 12804.
