Howard Verman: In Memoriam


We are tremendously saddened by the passing of our good friend and long-time KidSafe Board member, Howard Verman. Howard was our longest-serving Board member (since August 2003!), past Board President, and most notably co-Chaired our annual Yard Sale fundraiser for many years, bringing his dedication, hard work, leadership, humor and even silliness, to make the event a success each year.

He also served for many years on our Community Advisory Board, reflecting his strong commitment to the safety and well-being of children and youth. Children were truly his lifetime passion, both in his volunteer work with KidSafe and in his career as an educator and with his work at Strategies for College.
We will miss Howard's true and sincere kindness, his dedication to children and to our work here at KidSafe, his humor and his twinkle-in-the-eye wit (he could always lift everyone's spirits or make us all groan at a silly pun or joke he'd tell). Wishing you endless love and light, Howard; and our heartfelt condolences to the Verman family.
