Harold Com­mings

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local -

Harold Com­mings sadly passed away on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 22, 2019. He was born to Philip and Gertrude Komin­sky on July 30, 1930 in Bay­onne New Jer­sey. He at­tended Bowl­ing Green State Univer­sity where he was an avid alum­nus his en­tire life. After col­lege, Harold served in the Korean War sta­tioned in San Fran­cisco and San Louis Obispo, Cal­i­for­nia.

Harold was bril­liant and a key player in the cre­ation of cor­po­rate barter. His com­pany, Ad­merex In­ter­na­tional was a leader in the in­dus­try. In ad­di­tion to Ad­merex In­ter­na­tional, he es­tab­lished mul­ti­ple highly suc­cess­ful com­pa­nies in­clud­ing BCK ENT, Leisure Op­por­tu­ni­ties, Inc. and Me­dia Barter As­so­ciates. He was a men­tor to many in the in­dus­try and re­spected by all.

Harold was never a pas­sive stake­holder and al­ways wanted to get in­volved and make things the best they could be. He held po­si­tions on var­i­ous boards in­clud­ing his Man­hat­tan and Bal Har­bour con­do­mini­ums. He was also very phil­an­thropic and sup­ported many causes in­clud­ing Ben Gu­rion Univer­sity of the Negev in Is­rael.

In 1958 Harold mar­ried the love of his life, Alice. As he liked to say, their mar­riage was like a hand and glove, a per­fect fit. To­gether they raised their fam­ily in South Or­ange, New Jer­sey. He had an ex­ten­sive so­cial agenda, but through­out his en­tire life fam­ily meant the world to him.

Harold was a cre­ative man who had many in­ter­ests. He was a world trav­eler, avid golfer, bridge player, a great dancer, loved to act and col­lect an­tiques and art. Harold was a mas­ter at telling sto­ries and jokes. His ex­pres­sions, ges­tures and of course his great smile is some­thing that will never be for­got­ten. He was a pa­tron of the arts and a bene­fac­tor of The Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera House, The Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art and The Mi­ami City Bal­let.

Harold had res­i­dences in South Or­ange, Man­hat­tan, Boca Ra­ton and Bal Har­bour, Florida.

Harold was a true gen­tle­man and led a life truly worth cel­e­brat­ing. He will be missed tremen­dously by all who knew him. Harold was pre­de­ceased by his beloved wife of over 47 years Alice and his beau­ti­ful daugh­ter Jen­nie. He is sur­vived by his daugh­ter Carla Bo­den and son-in-law Mitch Bo­den, grand­daugh­ter Rachel Su­dack and her hus­band Peter Su­dack, grand­son Glen Bo­den, sis­ter Es­ther Schnitzer and brother-in-law Marty Schnitzer and wife Miriam Com­mings.

Funeral ser­vices were held Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 27 at Ber­heim Apter Kre­itz­man Sub­ur­ban Funeral Chapel in Liv­ingston, New Jer­sey.

Do­na­tions can be made to Ben Gu­rion Univer­sity of the Negev and the Na­tional Kid­ney Foun­da­tion.
