Larry Hollander, age 77 years, of Jeffersonville, PA, died on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Philadelphia, PA.
Born in the Bronx, NY, December 16, 1940, son of the late Benjamin and Lilia Brummel Hollander, Larry had resided in Jeffersonville for the past thirty-two years, having formerly lived for many years in Northeast Philadelphia after being raised in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood of Philadelphia. He was a graduate of the famed Central High School where he was a proud member of the school’s football team.
For the past thirty years, he was the owner of Larry’s Thrift Shoppe in Norristown, PA, where he was known in the community as a man of caring and compassion. A humble man, several articles were written about his generosity over the years to the poor and needy, especially the children, that he encountered during his work.
Quiet and reserved, Larry would want to be remembered as a family man; a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who would do anything needed to make certain his family was provided for in all ways. He was a role-model who will be missed by all those who knew him.
Surviving are his wife with whom he joined hands in marriage on September 27, 1970, Liliane Intro Hollander; three sons and daughters-in-law, Erick and Barbara Cooper of Doylestown, PA, Jeffrey and Brenda Cooper of Reading, PA and Scott and Maria Cooper of Brooklyn, NY; his grandchildren, Jonathan Hollander Cooper and his wife, Jessica Tommassello, Aryn Hope Cooper and Rackel Jaqueline Cooper; a great grandson, Calvin Joseph Cooper; and many friends.
Graveside burial services officiated by Rabbi Josh Leighton were private in the Flemington Jewish Community Cemetery, 67 Capner Street, Flemington, NJ under the care and direction of Wright & Ford Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 38 State Highway 31, Flemington, NJ. Shiva was private.

As is customary, no flowers please. Those wishing may make a contribution in Larry’s memory to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, SW, Washington, DC 20024-2126 as Liliane was born in Europe during the Holocaust and this museum is important to them both.
