Albert Fishman, 60, who retired in 1967 as vice president of Frozen Foods Inc., a Washington wholesale food company, died of leukemia Saturday at the University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore.
Mr. Fishman was born in Connecticut and came to Washington at an early age. He joined the family business, Washington Wholesale Grocery Inc., when he was 12 years old. He rose to become its vice president and remained in that capacity when it became Frozen Foods. He retired after Frozen Foods was sold in 1967.
He belonged to the Civitans Club in Rockville and was a member of the Brandeis Club. Mr. Fishman was a member of the B'nai Israel Congregation in Rockville.
He is survived by his wife, Madeline Epstein Fishman, of the home in Rockville; a son, Michael, of Bethesda; three daughters, Arlene Benswanger, of Rockville, Joanne Steinberg, of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Paulette Walker, of Rockville; three stepchildren, Todd, Jonathan, and Jody Epstein, all of Bethesda; a sister, Rae Goldberg, of Washington; three brothers, Solomon, of Miami Beach, Fla., Daniel, of Silver Spring, and Sydney, of Gaithersburg, and seven grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Baltimore Cancer Research Center, Cancer Research Fund, at the University of Maryland Hospital, 22 South Green Street, in Baltimore.
