Abromovitz, Alan A beautiful life of love, faith and wonderment came to a sudden yet peaceful end on the warm evening of May 10, 2017 as Dr. Alan Mark Abromovitz, surrounded by his beloved family, was called to his rest. He was preceded in death by his beloved son, Daniel Abromovitz. Surviving to treasure his memory are his wife, Lorin (Finn) Abromovitz, his children, Michael, Joshua and Stacie Abromovitz, as well as his siblings, Merle Jeanne (Dr. Stanley) Milstein and Gary B. (Paula) Abromovitz, along with a multitude of cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and patients who loved him dearly. His life began on September 10, 1945 in Tempe, Arizona and spanned over 70 years of unconditional love for family, friends and patients. An exceptional man, who devoted his time on earth to healing and serving the mind, body and spirit, Dr. Abromovitz practiced medicine for over 40 years and was a renowned healer, teacher, author, Master of Acupuncture and adjunct Professor of Osteopathic manipulation at Michigan State University School of Medicine. A pioneer in the field of alternative medicine, Dr. Abromovitz was a founding member of the Arizona Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners, and dedicated his practice to the drug-free treatment of chronic pain and limitation of function. Dr. Abromovitz was known as the man to call when traditional medical remedies failed to work. A lifelong native of Phoenix, Dr. Abromovitz attended Central High School and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona. His passion for his fellow man led him to Memphis, Tennessee where he attended The University of Tennessee School of Medicine. It was in Memphis that he met Lorin Finn. Lorin and Alan met, fell in love, and within a year were engaged to be married. Over the next forty plus years they built a life of joy, love and comfort for their children. Despite Dr. Abromovitz's extensive accolades and accomplishments, his proudest achievement was playing the role of father to his four cherished children. We are so proud of you, Dad. You are our whole world, and we will spend the rest of our lives cherishing your memory and living in your honor. Always and forever.
