Beloved husband of the late Elaine Elenbogen nee Manheim. Loving father of Janet Elenbogen and the late Bruce (Linda) Elenbogen. Proud grandfather of Andrew and Josh. Dear brother of Gilbert (the late Irene) Elenbogen, the late Ellen (the late Joseph) Cooper and the late Bernard (the late Rose) Elenbogen. Fond brother-in-law of the late Jerome (Sylvia) Manheim. Cherished uncle, cousin and friend of many. He led a great life. He was blessed to have a very loving and supportive family, extended family, friends, neighbors and colleagues whom he loved, cherished and respected in return. His 64-year marriage was enviable and he took great pride in his family and extended family. He was loved and respected by many. He possessed an uncanny ability to relate to and understand people. He could help you gain clarity on the many events of life, provide great leadership and counsel especially in the fields of education, psychology and assessment, write a poem or speech for any occasion, tell you a joke or story to match a situation, tell incredible stories about his experiences in World War II, sing a standard songs of the 30'and 40's with gusto and even do incredible math tricks.

I have known "Mr. E" for the last 55 years. I have called him that, for most of that time. I went to middle school and high school with his daughter. We became great friends. After my parents passed, he and Mrs. E were like my second family. He was always there to talk to me before oral exams at the Chicago Board, so I was calmer. He congratulated me when I started my computer career a few years later. He was always there for me. I was welcomed at so many events at his home and at restaurants that he made me feel part of the family. Mr. E. You will always be in my heart.

Love Forever,
Nancy Ginsburg
