His is survived by his best friend Gordon Meyer, his stepchildren, Raquel Dixon, Abraham Richter and his beloved wife, Francine Braverman, who inspired him to write this lovely poem:

The Name of the Rose
"Who was She?
Who was this Creature who rose like the dawn?
As bewitching as the moon
Radiant as the sun;
Terrible as an army
Poised for battle"
This rose is my beloved wife Francine Bravermen

His wife,Francine, called him her guardian angel and will honor his wish to rewrite the Calendar Code in memory of him.
