Ferndale artist Howard Weingarden passed away on June 20, 2011 at the age of 67. He is survived by loving family and friends, including Step-Mother Shirley Weingarden, brother Dr. Gary Weingarden and his wife Beth, and sister Marcy Weber. Services were held at The Dorfman Chapel in Farmington Hills.
Weingarden’s passion for art led him to create in many media, including painting and pencil drawing. The ethereal quality of the images, including the rich dreamy colors, taps into the imagination and reveals part of the man’s soul which will be dearly missed by friends, relatives and art lovers throughout the area.
Weingarden was recognized by the Farmington Area Arts Commission as Artist in Residence for 1996. Weingarden’s work is available online through Astrology Café at http://www.astrologycafe.com/weingard/howard2.html. His website is http://www.normankoren.com/Weingarden/index.html.
