Albert Waterman Obituary
November 22, 1929 - February 1, 2016
Albert [Laurence Albert] Waterman of La Canada passed away in the early morning of February 1 at Glendale Adventist Medical Center from a condition related to his heart. He was surrounded by his wife, Rosalie; his son, Maurice; and his brother, Seymour. Through the week he was visited by his nieces and nephews from all over Southern California including much family by marriage and great nephews. There was no one more beloved and cherished by his family, friends, and children of all walks of life. His sense of humor, joy in all things, and vast well of knowledge in so many areas - including the stories of the family history - were treasures that he gave to the next generation. Born and raised in San Pedro, California on November 22, 1929, he was the first in his family to be able to attend college. He attended a young UCLA where he studied Sociology. His life was always rooted in serving those less fortunate in any number of ways -- developing their confidence and life skills. His greatest gift was the sharing of his company. Albert was active in the B'nai Brith, the Harbor District Masonic Lodge, Temple Sinai of Glendale, Southern CA Camping Association, a life member of The City of Hope, La Mirada Rotary, Highland Park and San Pedro Kiwanis, Temple of the Creative Arts, a volunteer at Union Station and Virgil member of Order Arrow. Professionally was also involved in community organizations that supported the children of the Southern California community: he was a Field Exec for Boy Scouts of America. He was on staff at the Lake Arrowhead Boy Scouts Camps for ten summers. Following this he was the Camp Director for Camp Max Straus for ten years. He followed his work with the Jewish Big Brothers' Camp Max Straus with Sysco Food Services for both camping and as Director of Health Care Sales. And he took that expertise to Dinex International as a sales manager. He retired in 1995 but was always involved with the supportive agencies in his immediate community. He will be missed by those who worked with him and a great hole will open in the hearts he helped create with simple games and creative projects, beautiful family gatherings, sumptuous meals and great conversation.
Funeral to be held at 12:30 pm on Thursday, February 4 at Mount Sinai Cemetery/5950 Forest Lawn Drive/Los Angeles, California. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate honoring Albert with contributions to The Boy Scouts of America.
