Beloved husband of 46 years of Joan Firestone. Cherished father of Beatrix (Steven) Stern, Liana Lane, and Ari (Delquin Gong) Firestone. Proud grandfather of Abigail and Helen Stern, Taryn and Bryce Lane, and Fenix and Helix Firestone. Loving brother of the late Helene Salzman.

Dr. Firestone was a Professor of Psychology at Wayne State University for almost 50 years. He was an avid stamp collector, an opera lover, and a dedicated volunteer at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Bloomfield Township Public Library.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 10.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
