Stanley Adelman, 88, of Longboat Key, died Dec. 3.
Born Jan. 25, 1925, in Syracuse, N.Y., he met his wife, Francine “Fran,” on a blind date after serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He began his career in the New York City textile-converting business with Lowenstein & Sons, eventually founding his own business, Townley Manufacturing, with partner Irv Mendelsohn.
Mr. Adelman felt lucky that he retired in 1990, shortly before the downfall of the U.S. textile industry.
He raised his family in Merrick, N.Y., and spent his retirement in Pittsfield, Mass., and Longboat Key.
Mr. Adelman is survived by his wife of 65 years, Fran; sons Larry, of San Francisco, Jim, of Waban, Mass., and Jon, of Ossining, N.Y.; and five grandchildren.
