Norbert Gehr Obituary
December 2, 1940 - February 28, 2015 December 2, 1940 - February 28, 2015 Norbert Gehr, age 74, died Saturday, February 28, 2015 at his home in Beverly Hills, CA. Norbert was a Brazilian-born American citizen, who made California his home for 56 years and was born on December 2nd, 1940 to the late Leo and Francisca Gehr. He attended UCLA Business School and started his own business in 1965 at the age of 24. His high work ethics and commitment to excellence led him, over the years, to build The Gehr Group empire from his very humble beginnings. Norbert never retired, as his love of work made that his favorite hobby and greatest passion. Norbert is survived by his daughter, Crystal Gehr, and sons, Robert, Max and Andrew Gehr; his brothers Richard and Leo Gehr, and a niece and nephew. Memorial services were held last Sunday, March 8th at 11am at Hillside Memorial on 6001 Centinela Avenue, LA, California, and was attended by 350 of his loyal friends, employees and beloved family. A celebration of his life was held at his personal residence following services where a short documentary and interview about his life and legacy was shown and will continue to be available for viewing at www.gehr.com/video, for all those who did not make it to the occasion. Any belated gesture of support in his memory may be directed to his philanthropic organization in form of donation to *The Gehr Family Foundation*, which among other charitable causes, is dedicated to supporting the fight against Leukemia.
