Daniel Silverman

Daniel Silverman, 83, ascended to a higher realm on Feb. 6, 2012.

He was born in Chicago, Ill., in 1928 and lived there until 1967 when he moved with his family to Los Angeles, Calif., (where he still resided). Danny worked at MCA/Universal in the publicity department for more than 40 years. Dan was a dedicated member and vice president of Congregation Etz Jacob, where he chaired the education committee.

A beloved father, grandfather, husband, uncle and son, Dan loved history, old Hollywood actors and films (especially “The Wizard of Oz”), the Chicago White Sox, trolleys and trains, opera and ice cream, visiting cemeteries, theaters, and so much more, but most of all he loved to have a good time with his friends and family wherever he went. He strove to make every moment in life meaningful, and he was a true ish chesed (a man of kindness).

His memory will be cherished, along with the memory of his wife, Eleanor, by his surviving children Susan Silverman (Ri­chard Roati), Steven Silverman (E. Virginia Claridades), Michael Silverman, and grandchildren Ezra Roati and Korey Roati.
