Obituary — Andr√©s Friedman

David T. Drummond ⎜Nov 16, 2015 ⎜ Industry

We are sad to report that we have lost one of the members of our isoSolutions family. Andrés Friedman passed away on the morning of 2nd of September in Budapest, after a long illness.

Andrés was our first sales representative, and he is largely responsible for the entry of isoSolutions into the Latin American market. He introduced us to his extensive network of contacts, and provided valuable advice and assistance as we grew our business. He was a gentleman and a fount of knowledge on a wide range of subjects. He loved learning and he was passionate about the things that mattered to him. He was a consummate traveler in his earlier days and he cooked a mean Hungarian goulash.

Andrés was born in Oradea, Romania on the 6th of December, 1937. He moved to Chile with his family in 1939 and then the family relocated to Buenos Aires in 1950. André spent his youth in Buenos Aires until the age of 27. He studied at the Natural Science University in Buenos Aires and graduated with a B.A. in Chemistry in 1964. He spent a year abroad in Saclay, France in 1965-66 and then performed an internship in radiobiology with ASTEF in 1966-67.

He entered the chemical products industry with SEIA-Saint Eutrope in 1967 and worked during the next 11 years in the Netherlands, Argentina, Chile and Germany. He moved to Canada in 1978. There, he joined the Radiochemical Company of Atomic Energy of Canada, which was later privatized as MDS Nordion, and worked for the company for 12 years in Canada and another 2 years in Belgium. In 1998 he moved to Hungary.

Andrés is survived by his wife and is fondly remembered by many friends around the world.

isoSolutions is honored to have known Andrés Friedman and is grateful for his contributions to the company. He will be sadly missed.

RIP Andrés.
