William S. Friedman, age 76, passed away at his home in Columbus surrounded by his loving family on March 4. He was born on March 19, 1941 in Springfield, Ohio to the late Norman and Dorothy Friedman. Until the day he died, Mr. Friedman touched the lives of virtually everyone he met. He was a gifted family law attorney, recognized in The Best Lawyers In America each year since its inception. He also was one of the original fellows of the Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. During his early career, Mr. Friedman worked with Gov. James A. Rhodes, then later founded the William S. Friedman Company, which became Friedman & Mirman Co., L.P.A. In his practice, he was most proud of his accomplishments at mentoring young attorneys, including his son Scott, with whom he then worked for more than 20 years. One of Mr. Friedman’s most remarkable talents was his humor. Outside of the law, he was an amateur actor on stage and television. His larger-than-life personality brightened any stage — or room — he entered. Mr. Friedman loved his music, cowboy movies, and dogs. He loved and adored his wife, Cindy, the rest of his family, and his many dear friends, who all stood strong by his side during his courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by wife, Cindy Friedman; children, Scott (Kerstin) Friedman, Ariane Friedman, Jason (Jill) Monus and Brett Monus; grandchildren, Davis, Lena, Miles, and Alex Friedman, Jackson and Juliette Monus, Will and Riley Mathews; his dog, Daisy; as well as numerous cousins and other relatives.

Ross Heart Hospital or other charity of choice.
