Abram (Abe) Suydam

Abram (Abe) Suydam, 86, a former longtime member of the university’s Board of Trustees and a strong supporter of Rutgers athletics programs, passed away on August 26, 2016.

Funeral arrangements were private.

Suydam was a 1951 Rutgers graduate who built a successful insurance business. He was inducted into the Board of Trustees in 2006. For 40 years, he and his wife, Ann, attended nearly every Rutgers basketball game and he contributed for decades to the athletics programs.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to either Six Mile Reformed Church, Franklin Park, or the Rutgers University Foundation.
