Cassel Rudolph Ruhlman Jr. ’38

Published in Nov. 8, 1995, issue

Cassel Ruhlman died June 3, 1995, at home in Sun City West, Ariz., where he and his wife, Edith, had moved in 1988.

He came to Princeton from Pennington (N.J.) H.S. He majored in politics and joined Terrace Club. He went on to Temple Law School for his LLB. He then joined the Navy and served in the European theater during WWII. Returning home, he served as legal assistant to the chancellor of the Superior Court of New Jersey, then became a partner in Ruhlman & Ruhlman in Trenton (later Ruhlman & Butrym in Pennington). He was attorney for the New Jeresy Education Assn., municipalities and school boards, and was active in Kiwanis, Lions, and the YMCA.

Cass spent summers in the Adirondacks with family and Edie's brother, Dick Hough '39, playing tennis, golf, and sailing, as well as skiing in winter.

In Arizona he at once became involved in local affairs, guiding the Sun City West Governing Board in their program to preserve it as a good retirement community.

Cass is survived by Edie, his wife of nearly 54 years, daughter Judith Weinstein, son Douglas H., brother Robert, and five grandchildren. His loss will be felt not only by his family, but by the communities where he lived.
