LEXINGTON Major Saul J. Rosenblum, U.S. Army, (Retired), 87, passed away Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at Agape Hospice Home, Lexington, after a brief illness. Born April 27, 1930 in The Bronx, New York, he was the son of the late William Herman and Esther Brandes Rosenblum.
He was the loving husband of Connie Bailey Rosenblum and married more than 57 years. They recently relocated to Lexington, S.C., after being a member of the Forest Lake Community for more than 30 years.
Saul was also the proud and loving father of his daughters, Lisa Sharpe of Lexington and Suzan Merten and her husband, John of Roanoke, VA.

Major Rosenblum spent 20 honorable years in the U.S. Army, serving in the Korean Conflict and spent two tours in the Vietnam War. During that time, he graduated from the University of Maryland. Upon retiring from military service, Saul and Connie opened up a dry-cleaning store, Carriage Cleaners, on Forest Drive in Columbia. They worked daily in their store for 28 years before retiring a second time. Saul never met a stranger and enjoyed all the people he met during those 28 years serving the public. He was a member of the Fraternal Order of Masons and a past Head of the Credit Committee with AllSouth Federal Credit Union.
