RAPAPORT, Bernaird Sherman March 25, 1943 – May 22, 2013 Sherman passed away quietly, after a week in hospice, taking in well wishes and love from his friends and family. Sherman had been fighting multiple melanoma for the past year and a half. While his passing was sudden and unexpected, he managed to face death in the same way he faced life, with a spirit of optimism and a smile for all who would share in it. Sherman will always be loved and missed by his wife and companion in all things Fran, and his two children Steven and Lesley.
