SHAPIRO Dr. Jordan Leon Shapiro of Brookline, Wellfleet, South Yarmouth and Sea Ranch Lakes, Florida died peacefully on February 9, 2015 with family at his side. Jordan was born in 1927 in Worcester, Massachusetts. After his family moved to Brookline, he went Brookline High School (Class of 19 46), attended Suffolk University and graduated from the Massachusetts College of Optometry, now the new England College of Optometry (Class of 1952). He owned and operated the Vision Care Center in Coolidge Corner for 51 years. Jordan was also a professional drummer, following in his father Joseph’s footsteps and a successful businessman. In the early days, music gigs paid for his education and helped support his family. In his later years, the music business was a source of great friendships and pleasure. In business, he became one of the founding partners of The Interface Group, a computer tradeshow company launched in the early days of the computer industry expansion. Interface later diversified by purchasing and expanding the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. When not involved with business, Jordan treasured the outdoors-fishing, hunting, skiing or just taking rides to explore New England. There perhaps was nothing he enjoyed more than summer days spent with family on the beach in Wellfleet and messing around on his boats. Jordan is survived by his longtime life partner Julie Donahue: his wife Dorothy (Luwisher) Shapiro, his sons Andrew (and Ruth Bonsignore) of Needham and Joseph (and Lynn Clark) of Boston, his daughter Gail Shapiro (and Kevin Moore) of Santa Monica, California and his loving grandchildren Daniel, Ruben and Anna Shapiro and Emily and Lena Moore. He was the son of the late Joseph and Lena (Cohen) Shapiro and preceded in death by his beloved little sister Sandra Adelson and his grandson Kyle. Celebrations of Jordan’s life will be held in Florida and at the Stanetsky Memorial Chapels, 1668 Beacon Street, BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS(dates and times to be announced). In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in Jordan’s memory to the Joy of Music Program, 1 Gorham Street, Worcester, MA 01605.
