Obituary for Sherman C. Sperling

Sherman C. Sperling, 95, passed away on Thursday, October 25, 2018 in Woodland Hills, CA.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Harriett, son Richard Bradley, parents Celia and Sam Sperling, sisters Rose Lieberman, and Hannah Davis and brothers Paul Sperling and Edward Sperling.

He is survived by his sister Margie (Les) Forman, daughter Kathy (Allen) Horwitz, and granddaughter Rachel (Jonathan) Laird.

Sherm was born in Sioux City, Iowa on March 8, 1923. He served in the Army Air Corp in WWII. He met Harriett in 1946 in Los Angeles, married on March 16, 1947, and moved to Council Bluffs, Iowa. There he operated Mid West Auto Supply Company with his father-in-law, Harry Kubby.

He and Harriett were very active in the Jewish community in Council Bluffs. They moved to Omaha in 1963. He immersed himself in the Temple Israel community as well as enjoying many, many functions at Highland Country Club with his many close friends. When he retired from Mid West Auto, he started a sign painting enterprise for local businesses----this, of course, before computers! He had a 6 foot easel built in his basement to accomplish this new career.

In 2003 he and Harriett moved to Woodland Hills, CA to be near Kathy and her family. There he and Harriett became active with Temple Judea in Tarzana, CA.

He had lots of family in Los Angeles and loved not having to tolerate Omaha winters!
