I met Mr. Zuckerman five years ago, when I accepted a position with his firm. He was an extremely dignified and intelligent man, with an endless eye for detail. He wrote thank you letters to his contractors after they completed a job, he remembered the most minute clauses in lease agreements, written 30 years prior, and insisted on climbing on rooftops to determine problematic situations up until about 2 years ago. On the weekends he carefully reviewed all of his ledgers, and prided himself on finding the tiniest of mistakes on my part, which I'd like to say - I'd eventually find with month-end close, but he was always one step ahead, which kept me on my toes. What I loved most about Mr. Z was all of his amazing lifetime stories. From fleeing the Russians, to meeting his beloved wife, and re-annexing the community I live in, from Walnut Creek to Concord, only because Concord was the only city at the time that could provide water and sewage to his development!! Mr. Z was an elegant, loving, kind man. Good night my dear friend,you'll be missed. Don't forget to have a dance with Sophia Loren while you're up there!! Rest in peace.
