    Howard Sanders Hillman, 77, passed away peacefully April 19, 2017. Howard was born on January 9, 1940 to Sara and Ralph Hillman. He leaves behind his daughter, Shoshanah Hillman; granddaughters, Ava and Chavi; brother, Jack Hillman; sister-in-law, Michal; nieces Annsley and Ben Klehr and Brittany and Alan Schwartzwald; and great nieces and nephews: Layla and Sawyer Klehr, and Mack and Mimi Schwartzwald. A native of Atlanta, Howard went to Inman Elementary School and was a Grady High School graduate. He graduated from GA State University. He enjoyed his summers at Camp Blue Star in Hendersonville, NC. He always enjoyed his Grady reunions. Howard was passionate about reciting Hebrew and he loved the many times he spent in Israel. He made many trips to Israel, and even considered moving to Israel in his earlier years. His favorite hobby was collecting and trading stamps. Earning his GA insurance license was a proud highlight of his life. He loved following sports, first as a young boy following the Atlanta Crackers and going to their games at the Ponce de Leon Ball Park. In later years he diligently followed the Braves, Falcons, and Hawks. Howard loved his synagogue, Temple Sinai; it was the center of his Jewish Life. He had the greatest respect and admiration for Rabbi Levenberg. Howard appreciated Rabbi’s friendship and valued his spiritual guidance. Most of all Howard loved his family. He always enjoyed family celebrations with his many relatives. He was so proud of his daughter and his beloved granddaughters. He was devoted to his loving parents. He admired their wonderful marriage of over 70 years, and how deeply they cared for one another. He was always so thankful that they were in his life. They were truly his beloved best friends, and he missed them deeply when they passed away. He was a resident of the Jewish Tower for many years and the Jewish Home for three years. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of the William Bremen Jewish Home for their compassionate care for Howard. The family also thanks the many doctors and particularly his NP’s at the Jewish Home who helped sustain Howard’s health through the years. We would also like to thank Elton Osmonson for his loyal service to so many of Howard's needs. Sign online guest book: In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Temple Sinai or the William Bremen Jewish Home. A graveside service will be held 2:00 PM Friday, April 21, 2017 at Greenwood Cemetery with Rabbi Bradley Levenberg officiating. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    Howard was a gentleman and always happy to see a friend. Never heard a cross word from him and worked hard to make the most of his life with the help from brother Jack. When asked. I would see Howard from time to time and Howard always had some news and interesting comments. He will be missed. Jerry Shure
