Lurie, Gerald Moller

June 4, 1925 - June 10, 2014

Gerald Moller Lurie, Dr., 89, of Sarasota, FL, formerly of Rochester, New York, died on June 10, 2014.

Beloved husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, he was a pediatrician, an avid golfer, photographer and soccer fan, who lived almost every day of his 89 years in good health. Devoted to his late wife, for whom he cared during her long illness, and to his family. He charmed all whose lives he touched, in his own idiosyncratic way. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by a daughter (Wendy Lurie, Montclair NJ) and two sons (Peter Lurie, Washington DC and Mark Lurie Providence RI) and 5 grandchildren (Rachel, Sam, Leah, Ellen, Jonathan). Donations may be made to Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and Villa Marie Claire Hospice.
