May 2, 1947 - April 8, 2017 New Windsor, NY Fredric Jay Rabinowe, 69 of New Windsor, NY passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 8, 2017. Fred was born on May 2, 1947 in Yonkers, NY, the beloved son of the late Harry and Iris Rabinowe. Never has there been a more devoted husband, father and grandfather. Fred had a boundless love for his family that filled him with endless pride and joy. He is survived by his wife, Ilene; sons David, Adam and his wife Robyn and Andrew and his wife Dabee. He is also survived by his three happiest pleasures, twin grandsons Hank and Jacob and his granddaughter Jordan. A pillar of the community, Fred taught math for over 30 years at Monroe-Woodbury High School before retiring in 2002. He earned his law degree from Pace University in 1986 and was a respected attorney for the past three decades.

An avid tennis player in his younger days and bridge player throughout his life, Fred earned Life Master status while enjoying the game with friends. After retiring from teaching he had the opportunity to travel and enjoy lengthy cruises to all corners of the world with Ilene. Above all, Fred loved putting a smile on his family and friends faces, whether sharing a good meal, a funny joke, a bit of sage advice, or simply his honest, gentle smile. He will be missed terribly, but the lifetime of wonderful memories he created will be with us forever.

I am so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I had Fred as my math teacher when he was a young man in the mid 70's and later reconnected with him as a cherished customer at Newburgh Toyota. We had some very nice chats, the last being just a few months ago. He loved to talk about the old days and how much education has changed. I'm going to miss our talks and I'm going to miss him. Rest in Peace Fred

I first met Fred when he was my math teacher at MWSHS; we then met again many years later after we had both become attorneys.  We even had a few cases together.  A nice man, with a good deal of patience. 



I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Rabinowe's passing. He was my algebra teacher at MWHS. He was very understand and very patient with me and my horrible algebra skills. I also remember he was An awesome pianist. 

I am so  so sorry to hear this sad news.  I absoluted loved Mr. Rabinowe's Math class, and I am saddended deeply, by this news.  Prayers and condolances to the entire family.  With a very saddened heart, Janet (Henderson) Nadeau.


My deepest sympathy to you and your family.  May you always remember the wonderful times you had together, and the joy your family and you shared with Fred.
