Arnold Friedman

Published on October 19, 2016

Arnold Friedman, film editor and author, of New York, NY and Callicoon, NY, died September 27, 2016 from complications due to a long battle with throat cancer. He was 85 years old.

Arnold was born in New York, NY in 1931, child of the late Barbara Friedman and the late Martin Friedman, an expressive impressionist painter. Arnold was married to Cecily Fortescue, a notable potter, tennis aficionado, and accomplished violist for 42 years until her death in 2012. Arnold is survived by many close friends and three cousins, Kate Selby of New Haven, VT; Susan Sugg-Nuccio of Lake Carmel, NY; and Elizabeth Sugg of Nyack, NY. Arnie’s stories, his antics, his cigars, and his delight in life will be sorely missed.
