Obituary Condolences

July 17, 1917 - August 1, 2015 Born, New York. Youngest ever graduate of CCNY. NYU School of Dentistry. WW II Navy Lieutenant (attached to 2nd Marines). One of the first to arrive in Nagasaki. Dr. Hersh, prominent local dentist into his 80's, was always on call, 24-7. Avid reader, traveler, photographer, golfer. Devoted to the ideals of science, reason, self-reliance, and sensible living. Survived by adult children, Tom Hersh (Adelle) & Jane Stuart (Dennis), grandchildren, Erin Chase (Adam), Melaney Stuart, Chad Stuart (Nicole) & Jonathan Hersh (Esther), great-grandchildren, (Porter & Lila Chase, Braden & Allison Stuart). Felt very fortunate that his family is the way they are. Loved by many friends, patients acquaintances. Married for 68 years to Joan who preceded him in death. Remarkable as a devoted and loving husband, a model for many, and as a stable, reliable and conscientious supporter of his family. Passed in the night, with dignity.
