Gary David Weisberg Obituary
March 3, 1952 - April 21, 2016 Gary Weisberg passed away on April 21, 2016 after complications from cancer. He passed way too young, but he lived an incredibly full life. A true Angeleno, Gary encompassed everything the city and culture had to offer by immersing himself in nature, working in the music industry, and loving the Dodgers. He had an intense passion for music at an early age, and got an exciting start to his music career touring as the drummer with Sherman Hayes at just 22 and then went on to tour with the John Stewart band. He was a true rock musician of the 1970's. He then spent several years as a session drummer in Los Angeles, playing on television shows at both Paramount and Sony Studios. He loved playing as the session drummer on "Mork & Mindy," "Laverne & Shirley" and "9 to 5," played on countless albums, and ran his own music management company. In 1979, he met his soulmate, Amy Kassorla, and they began their life together. Gary and Amy were married on April 25, 1982. Their life together included the births of their three girls, traveling the world, and enjoying camping in the National Parks, especially his favorite, Yosemite. Gary transitioned into a new career, following one of his other passions, cars. Gary worked in Finance for BMW for over 20 years and was recognized internationally as the top Finance Director for several years. He had most recently begun working for Porsche, something he had always wanted to do. Gary had an intense love of nature, and cherished the National Parks, climbing Half Dome on his 50th birthday and enjoying countless camping trips both solo and with friends and family throughout the course of his life. Gary also loved animals, especially his cats, Buster, One-Eye, Tuna and Charcoal, and beloved dog, Charlie. Gary is survived by his wife of 34 years, Amy Kassorla Weisberg, his three daughters, Kimberly Weisberg Rohrer, Nicole Weisberg, and Danielle Weisberg, son-in-law William Rohrer, his future granddaughter, sister-in-law Nancy Erisman and her partner Jimi Allbritten, cousins the Sattlers, sister Joanne Kravetz, sister and her husband, Lauren and Ken Kaufman, a large and loved extended family, and many friends. The family asks that donations be made in Gary's name to the National Parks Foundation at www.nationalparks.org.
