Services for Walter Hendin, a retired pharmacist and businessman, will take place at noon today at the Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral home, 6010 Reisterstown Road.
Mr. Hendin, who lived on Bancroft Road before retiring to Hollywood, Fla., in the early 1970s, died of cancer Saturday at Hollywood Memorial Hospital. He was 70.
Mr. Hendin was a graduate of City College and a 1941 graduate of the University of Maryland Pharmacy School, where he was student council president and editor in chief of the yearbook. During World War II he served as a seaman in the merchant marine.
After graduation, Mr. Hendin worked 10 years as a pharmacist for the old Reade's drugstore chain before becoming co-owner with his brother of Hendin's Hollywood Fashions, a women's clothing store.
He was a charter member of the Chestnut Ridge Country Club and a founder of the Shaarei Zion congregation on Park Heights Avenue.
He was former president of the B'nai B'rith Ben Gurion Lodge and vice president of the Hallandale Jewish Center in Florida.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, the former Rae Eisenberg; two sons, Stuart Hendin and Benjamin Hendin, both of Baltimore; three sisters, Ann Margulies of Surfside, Fla., Rebecca Redler, also of Surfside, and Jeannette Schapiro of Baltimore; a brother, Samuel Hendin, also of Surfside; and two grandchildren.
The family suggested that memorial donations be made to the Cancer Research Fund at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
