Edgar S "Stanley" Rothenberger
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 30, 1907
Death: Sep. 15, 1962

Stanley was the husband of the woman who raised me the first two and a half months of my life. They worked as foster parents for infants who were going to be adopted. He must have been a very special man to have opened his home and allowed his wife to nurture over 100 babies over many years.

Stanley worked for H. Freeman and Son in Philadelphia in maintenance. Begun by Hyman Freeman in 1885, they are one of the oldest tailored clothing companies in the United States. An article about them from 1963 says they were (at least then) based in Philadelphia at 33rd and Arch streets. This location was later closed in 2004 and moved to Maryland.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Stanley, at least not as an adult, as he had passed away before I re-found his wife when I was about age 30. He is included here in thanks for opening his home so many infants, including me, could have a good start in life before being adopted.
