How could the The Watermark at 3030 Park manage without Harvey Gaberman?
Harvey plays a vital role keeping a sharp eye on the monies acquired and spent through our resident activities. With an MBA from The Wharton School, he is well equipped to deal with such concerns. He is Treasurer of the resident Association and serves on its Grants-in-Aid Committee.
“Being Treasurer is supposed to be a one-year job,” he acknowledges, “but it’s now five years and I’m still going strong.” Growing up in western Massachusetts, he attended the University of Massachusetts where he met his future wife Barbara (then a student at Smith College). The couple were married for 63 years until her loss in April of this year. Together they had a family of two daughters, four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
With a stint in the Navy, Harvey served as the Navy Exchange Officer on Kwajalein, Marshall Islands, and at the Naval Air Station in Brunswick, Maine. He later returned to civilian life to a career in manufacturing women’s undergarments.
The Gabermans then settled in Fairfield, where they lived for 60 years. They enjoyed the community and traveled extensively throughout the world and from there, the Gabermans came to The Watermark ten years ago choosing it’s easier lifestyle, appealing population, and health services. “We were comfortable here,” Harvey explains.
Today, in pursuing a new interest, Harvey finds himself playing bridge several times a week. “Bridge is my new passion,” he says, “and connecting with these players has been so satisfying.”
