Dr. Lee M. Shulman

Dr. Lee M. Shulman, 95, of California, formerly of Michigan, died on 29 October 2019.

Lee M. Shulman, well-known psychologist, World War II veteran and community leader, died October 29th, at the age of 95, in Valencia, California.

Born on Dec. 12, 1923, in Detroit, Michigan, Lee attended Central High School, graduating June 1941. Shulman enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in September 1942 at the age of 18 after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Upon returning from WWII, he completed his bachelor’s degree in psychology at Wayne State University, a master’s degree from University of Michigan and a PH.D in clinical psychology. Lee’s private practice career as a psychologist focused on executive coaching and relationship counseling. He was the founder of Lee Shulman & Associates in Royal Oak, Michigan.

He and his wife, Joyce, moved to California in the 80’s and have lived in Valencia, California since 1997. Prior to moving to California, the Shulman family were dedicated members of Congregation Shaarey Zedek for many generations. Lee's late father, Harry Shulman, was the president of Congregation Shaarey Zedek at the time Rabbi Morris Adler joined the synagogue.

Shulman was active in the local Eagle Scout Alumni Association, SCV Domestic Violence Center and advisory board for the Child & Family Center, as well as many other community organizations.

Shulman battled leukemia in his final few months.

Shulman is survived by his wife of 52 years, Joyce Shulman, six children, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life for Dr. Lee M. Shulman is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
