M. Jon Posner

M. Jon Posner, 73, of Southfield, Michigan, died on 11 January 2017.

The Funeral will be held at IRA KAUFMAN CHAPEL on Friday, 13 January 2017 at 3:00 PM .

Rabbi Joseph Krakoff and Cantor Neil Michaels will officiate.

Interment at Machpelah Cemetery. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Roberta Henrion. He was a loving and devoted father to Emily and Michael Posner, dear brother of Rebecca (Arthur) Samberg, David Posner, and Matthew (Marian Kromkowski) Posner, brother-in-law of Christine Taylor, Stephanie Smith, and Annette Madrid, and a cherished uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Jonny passionately practiced law for 45 years with his partners Ken Mogill, Mark Weiss, and Marjory Cohen. Jon's passion was defending the indigent. He did not mark his wins and losses through trials, but rather in lives changed, educations earned, and gainful employment. He was a colleague, mentor and instructor.
