BRYER, WARREN 'Pancho', of Sunny Isles Beach, FL passed away December 26, 2017. After defying the odds for many months, his heart beat for the final time as he sat working at his desk at home. He was born January 27, 1935 in South Philly to Mollie and Barney Bryer. He was a proud member of the 196 class of Central High School, graduating at age 16, a graduate of Temple University, and a CPA. He moved to Miami in 1988 to work for the late Anthony R. Abraham and his family to whom he dedicated the last 29 plus years of his life up to his very final moment.

Over a span of 30 years, he coached and played for the Philadelphia Athletic Club, the Brith Sholom League and many other teams in the Independent Leagues of Philadelphia. He was loved and respected by his players, not only as their coach, but as their mentor. Warren was also an avid tennis player, a lover of jazz and a horseracing enthusiast.
