Marvin Traub was given a loving, sentimental farewell at his funeral Sunday at Manhattan’s Central Synagogue, where a handful of speakers captured his full and vigorous life.
Traub, who died Wednesday at the age of 87 after a long illness, was remembered for his family devotion, worldliness, his halcyon days at Bloomingdale’s, as well as his foibles. His coffin was draped in an American flag in recognition of being a decorated World War II veteran wounded during the Normandy Invasion.
