Bernard Silver Obituary
June 6, 1926 - October 19, 2016 Bernie, as everyone called him, was born in Massachusetts and settled in Los Angeles in 1941. Bernie leaves behind Cecile, his loving wife of 67 years, four daughters, Sara, Nancy, Elizabeth, and Katherine (with her husband Peter), and five grandchildren, Paul, Dilara, Asya, Eli, and Oliver. Bernie earned his JD from University of Southern California in 1953 and retired from his legal practice in 1985. An avid deep sea fisherman, Bernie will be remembered by all who knew and loved him as generous, an old-fashioned story teller, a believer in education as the great equalizer, and a man who cared and valued integrity and justice. He was a dedicated philanthropist and champion of social justice. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to honor Bernie with a donation, Bernie supported Para Los Niños, an organization serving Los Angeles' neediest children and families, (online at paroslosninos.org; telephone at (213) 250-4800).
