Paul H. Schlossberg Retired businessman


Services for Paul H. Schlossberg, a retired businessman and decorated veteran of World War II, will be held at 3 p.m. today at the Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.

Mr. Schlossberg, 75, died Thursday at University Hospital after a long struggle with cancer.

The Pikesville resident was a Baltimore native and graduate of City College.

He was a leader in the field of installment sales, operating N. Schlossberg & Son, a retail home-furnishings business founded by his father, Nathan Schlossberg, in 1915. The younger Mr. Schlossberg expanded sales by offering customers continued revolving credit.

Although he had sold the business, he remained active in it until his death. He also was involved in real estate development of suburban office buildings and served as an unpaid consultant to new businesses.

Mr. Schlossberg enlisted in the Army at the outset of World War II and rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel in the Quartermaster Corps. He was awarded the Bronze Star for his supply work during the Battle of the Bulge.

Long active in the Jewish community, he was a trustee of Temple Oheb Shalom. He was a member of the Chatham Club and recently was honored for 50 years of membership with St. John's Masonic lodge.

Surviving are his wife of 45 years, the former Jeanne Oliner; three sons, Mark Schlossberg of Columbia, Roger Schlossberg of Boonsboro, and Lee Schlossberg of Buellton, Calif.; a brother, Leon Schlossberg of Baltimore; and seven grandchildren.

The family suggested donations to United Support Against Multiple Sclerosis and the University of Maryland Cancer Center, of which Mr. Schlossberg was a benefactor.
