Harold 'Hal' Leon Brainin
Harold ‘Hal’ Leon Brainin of Sharon Lane, Wethersfield, died Thursday, January 5, 2012.

Born in the Bronx, NY, November 9, 1927, he was the son of Benjamin and Yetta (Braunstein) Brainin. Harold was a US Army Veteran of World War II and a graduate of Fordham University School of Pharmacy. He was a member of the Jewish War Veterans and of Congregation B’nai Sholom, Newington. Harold was an accomplished musician; a warm, kind and gentle man. We take comfort in knowing the world has been a nicer place with Harold in it.

He was the loving husband for 63 years of Ruth (Schwartz) Brainin; father of three devoted daughters: Barbara Anghel of Manchester, Ann Brainin of Burbank, CA, and Janis Monat and her husband George of Sharon, MA; two cherished grandsons: Benjamin I. Monat and Yonatan A. Monat, of whom he was very proud. He also leaves two sisters-in-law: Joanne Schwartz of Wethersfield and Beatrice Brainin of NY, as well as many dear nieces, nephews and friends. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother William D. Brainin and brother-in-law, Owen Schwartz.
