Goodbye, Stan Hochman

Hundreds of admirers and friends of Stan Hochman joined his family on this beautiful spring afternoon for the  final, formal farewell to Stan Hochman. TV, radio and newspaper colleagues gathered with Gloria Hochman and other loved ones of Stan’s at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park.  A folded flag of the United States of America lay beside a forest of flowers atop the wood coffin bearing the body of the veteran, columnist, commentator, writer and humanitarian. Stan was remembered as smart, wise, loving, compassionate, talented and honest.  If Stan were to have described today’s service, he just might have called it “dazzling.”
