Obituary for Harold "Hal" Cohen

Harold "Hal" Cohen
Hal (Harold) Cohen, 65, beloved husband, teacher, actor, and friend, of Egg Harbor Township, passed away on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

Growing up in Cheltenham, Hal went on to earn various degrees in Journalism and Radio, Television, & Film from Philadelphia Community College and Temple University. After a 10-year career in professional theatre productions in Philadelphia, New York City and Boston, he furthered his educational endeavors to earn his Master of Arts degree in Literature and Secondary Education.

A dedicated educator, Hal taught English and Literature, Creative Writing, Theatre, and Media courses at Egg Harbor Township High School for 27 years. He also coached softball, was advisor of Key Club, and directed the school plays. He eventually finished out his career at Egg Harbor Township as Supervisor of the English Department before retiring in 2011. Upon retirement, Hal reentered the world of acting, performing in a number of TV and film productions.

Hal will be remembered for his sarcastic wit and love of irony, classic cars, fine wine, the best scotch, and spending quality time with friends and his loving wife of 21+ years, Laureen.

Hal is predeceased by his parents Rose (Katz) and Morris Cohen of Philadelphia. Hal is survived by his wife, Laureen (Jordan) Cohen, a brother, aunts, uncles, nieces, cousins, and friends, as well as a generation of Egg Harbor Township students who graduated with a finer appreciation of writing, literature, journalism and the arts.

Hal’s years in education have inspired generations of young people, educators, and peers. He followed his student successes throughout their lives with both pride and admiration. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hal Cohen Memorial Scholarship Fund, 21 East Black Horse Pike, Pleasantville, NJ 08232.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 10th from 6-8pm at Adams-Perfect Funeral Home, 1650 New Road, Northfield, and again on Thursday, January 11th from 10-11am. A Celebration of Life memorial service will follow at 11am. A private burial is planned.
