avid Brody, 82, of Southfield,
died May 11, 2012.
His parents, Gerald
Brody from Novogradvolinsk in the
Ukraine, and Fay (Haussman) Brody
from Kobrin, Poland, were kept from
entering the U.S. due
to quotas. They met in
Havana, were married in
1928 and became Cuban
citizens.
David was born in
1929 and arrived in
the U.S. with his fam-
ily in 1941. He became
a citizen in 1946 and
attended Hutchins
David Brod
Intermediate School,
Cass Technical High School and
Wayne University, graduating from
the latter in 1952 with a B.S. in civil
engineering.
He was a civil engineer at Hubbel,
Roth & Clark from 1951-1996.
Drafted in 1952 during the Korean
conflict, he served in Germany as a
cartographer in the 524 Engineering
Topographic Corps from February
1953 to July 1954.
Mr. Brody's career spanned
the burgeoning infrastructure of
expanding populations of Oakland
and Wayne counties. He had several
major projects he was responsible
for in the Metro Detroit area includ-
ing the Wayne County Wyandotte
Wastewater Treatment Plant, the
Detroit Wastewater Treatment Plant
and the combined sewer overflow
retention treatment basins, which
were projects in Wayne County,
Flint, Saginaw, Bay City and Oakland
County.
In 1997, he was named Civil
Engineer of the Year by the Michigan
Section and Southeastern Branch
of the American Society of Civil
Engineers. In 2007, he was awarded
a patent for his system to reduce
flooding in communities with large,
complicated drainage systems.
In retirement he lectured at
Focus: Hope. He had earlier taught
engineering students at Wayne

State University and Lawrence
Technological University.
Mr. Brody was very active at
Congregation Beth Shalom in Oak
Park. He served on the ritual com-
mittee and was involved in increas-
ing the participation of
women in the service.
After Mr. Brody's tri-
ple bypass operation in
2001, his coming home
to friends and extended
family helped boost his
lifespan far beyond his
bleak prognosis. Instead,
in 2006 he wrote to his
surgeon, Dr. Nicholas A.
Tepe: "My activities keep
my brain alert. I have been doing
much historical engineering research
and writing and corresponding on
engineering topics."
Family activities bolstered his
health. Just 12 days before he died,
he attended his granddaughter
Meredith Starkman's lead perfor-
mance in Arabian Nights at Groves
High School in Beverly Hills.
David Brody is survived by his
wife of almost 56 years, Susan Brody;
daughters and sons-in-law, Cynthia
Brody of Beverly Hills, Alice Brody
and Ron Ross of Bloomfield Hills,
Diane Brody and Todd Schafer of
Beverly Hills; grandchildren, James
Ross, Charles Starkman, Adam Ross
and Meredith Starkman; brother-in-
law and sister-in-law, Leonard and
Peggy Pernick. He is also survived
by Mandy Andrews, Rob Starkman,
many cousins, nieces and neph-
ews, his friends at Congregation
Beth Shalom and his associates at
Hubbell, Roth & Clark.
He was the devoted son of the
late Gerald and the late Fay Brody;
the loving brother of the late Joseph
Brody; the dear brother-in-law of the
late Pearl and the late Abe Friedman.
Interment was at Adat Shalom
Memorial Park. Contributions may
be made to a charity of one's choice.
Arrangements by Ira Kaufman
Chapel.
