SILVERMAN, STANLEY Passed peacefully on May 31 with loving family and friends by his side. Born in the Bronx on September 16, 1928, Stanley lived a full life. At the age of 17, Stan joined the Navy during World War II, and then worked as a steward on luxury liners where he met his future wife, Marilyn Kaplan, crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Marilyn and Stan married in New York in June, 1954 and moved to Miami two years later, where they started their family. Working as a carpenter, Stan helped build hotels on Miami beach, like the Americana. He became a North Miami Beach firefighter in 1958 and one of the country's first paramedics. Stan created the Dade Country paramedic program and set up the first ACLS program. During his time in the Fire Department, he was promoted to lieutenant, awarded the highest emergency medical technician status, and saved countless lives. He went on to teach emergency medicine at Nova University, helping others to save lives across Dade County as well. Stan's three children (Bradley, deceased 1999, Marty, and Robin) followed in his footsteps by becoming doctors who help provide service to others. Stan was very proud of his six wonderful grandchildren, Jordan, Aaron, Erica, Miles, Adam, and Noah. Stan was a kind and giving man who was loved by all who knew him and his memory will live on.
