He is lovingly remembered by his sister-in-law, Norma Shapiro, his children Owen and Laurie, Eric and Robin and Billy, his grandchildren Ariel and Lewis Silberman, Morgan and Austin Curtis, Dean, Jessie, Miles and Mason, his great-grandchildren Violet and Sadie Silberman and Chloe Curtis, and his "girlfriend" Marilyn Cohen.
