Paul Gader Obituary
January 17, 1924 - December 8, 2016 Paul was born in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, NY to Robert and Anna Gader. He attended Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn and St. John's University prior to WWII where he served in the Army Air Corps. Following the war he transferred to UCLA and became house manager of the heralded ZBT fraternity developing invaluable friendships that lasted throughout his lifetime. While attending UCLA he met and later married Beverly Joan Dean on August 8, 1948. They had two children, Coreen in 1950 (deceased 1980) and Neil in 1953. Graduating from UCLA in 1947 with a degree in business administration, he became an accountant and later a real estate appraiser spending his career in the field of mortgages and trust deeds. He was named an honorary lifetime member of the Society of Real Estate Appraisers. Paul and Beverly divorced in 1975. In 1991, Paul began a new life chapter when he met Edna Mae Glikmann. Sparks flew immediately and they began a journey that spanned 25 wonderful years together. The love they shared also joined together their families including Edna's children Alex Glikmann and Jill Nieman, and their respective spouses Gail Glikmann and Andrew Nieman. Over the years it was a life filled with adventures, travel, culture, and joyful family gatherings and of course, tennis-Paul competing, Edna Mae cheering from the stands. Ms. Glikmann passed away in October 2016. A lifelong fitness buff, he ran track in college, played football at UCLA, and later found his dream sport tennis which he played at the regional tournament level well into his 80s. As a boxing fan he fulfilled a dream twelve years ago joining the Wildcard Boxing Gym in Hollywood where he could be found every Friday working out each week with the boxers and athletes and making many new and rewarding friendships. Paul's younger brother Kenneth died in 2001. He is survived by his son Neil Gader and his daughter-in-law, Judi Dickerson. [Photo by Joe La Russo]
