Samuel Braverman, 102, longtime resident of Scottsdale, AZ since 1983 and former resident of Chicago, IL, died March 26, 2012 surrounded by his immediate family. He is survived by his wife, Pearl of 72 years; two daughters, Marcia (Doniger) and Donna (Knopf); grandchildren, Scott (Doniger) and Michelle (Long); great-granddaughter, Erica; and sons-in-law, Jay Doniger and William Knopf. He was born March 15, 1910 in Trestine, Poland. He is preceded in death by his twin brother, Joseph; and sisters, Rebecca and Dorothy. He and his brother came to the United States, by themselves, in 1926 (16 years of age) where they lived with relatives in Shawnee, OK, New Jersey and finally Chicago, IL. As did many people of his generation, he worked very hard all his life to achieve the American Dream of a loving family and a successful business. During his long business career, he owned many businesses, but one, Braverman's Cafeteria Restaurant, received local and national recognition as the place "where the corned beef came through the rye." Braverman's trademark Corned Beef sandwich was a truly iconic Chicago delicacy. In 1966 he was honored by being on the cover of the Chicago Sun-Times Midwest Magazine, which featured Braverman's. A private service was held in Scottsdale, AZ. Memorial donations may be sent to the .
