We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Bernard Hurwitch, husband of former member Estelle Hurwitch. Mr. Hurwitch was born on October 28, 1933, in Boston, Massachusetts. A graduate of Northeastern University, he served in the Army Signal Corps in Europe from 1953 to 1956. In 1980 he moved to Florida and worked at Lockheed Martin Corp. as an engineer until retirement. He also volunteered as a Citizen on Patrol for the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. A devoted family man, gardener, and hardcore New England sports fan, Bernard Hurwitch passed away on March 24, 2014, at the age of 80. We would like to share our heartfelt condolences to Estelle and the rest of Bernard’s family and friends for their loss.
