BLUM Doctor Harry Blum, age 105, of Heritage Village, Southbury, died peacefully at his home on Sunday, March 14, 2004. He was the widower of Regina Blum. Mr. Blum was born on December 25, 1898, in Russia, son of the late Samuel and Bella (Berlowitz) Blum. He was raised in the Brooklyn, N.Y. area and was a 1921 graduate of New York University where he received his medical degree. He was a U.S. Army reserve veteran during World War I and had ran a active ear nose and throat medical practice in the Brooklyn area for more than 70 years before retiring at the age of 95. In 1936 Mr. Blum began painting and pursed that passion after his retirement. He was an accomplished artist and had received prizes and awards. He had held many art exhibits locally and in the New York City area. He had always lived life to the fullest with a sharp mind and sense of humor and even drove up until his death. On December 24, 2003 the Waterbury Republican published an article about Mr. Blum in honor of his 105 years of life. Among his survivors are his son, Doctor Lawrence Blum and his wife, Florence, of Fairfield; his daughter, Ruth and her husband, Norman Kalt, of Southbury; his grandchildren, Matthew and Noreen Kalt, Deborah Kalt, Stephen and Andrea Blum, Esther and Jeremy Horn and Robert Blum; as well as a great-grandson, Jared Kalt; and several nieces and nephews. Services for Mr. Blum will be held on Tuesday, March 16, at B'Nail Israel Temple (444 Main Street North. Southbury), at 10 a.m. followed by burial at Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, N.Y.
