Obituary - STUART PAUL BERNSTEIN
Dr. Stuart Paul Bernstein of Belle Isle, Fla., passed away Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016 surrounded by his family. He was 83.
“All my dreams came true,” Stuart said again and again, referencing his 58 year marriage to his wife, Ruth, their family and, in his words, that he had been a “good doctor.” Stuart said, “I have no regrets.”
A kind and generous person who cared deeply for his family and friends, Stuart loved cracking jokes, listening to classical music, and sneaking in an extra dessert. After retiring from his Orlando psychiatric practice in 1998, he was committed to local political and social causes, working on behalf of the ACLU, the Adult Literacy League and the Florida Trail Association. He was especially proud of his volunteer work supporting Barack Obama.
Stuart is survived by his wife, Ruth; his three children and their spouses: Lori Bernstein and Doug Merrill, Avi Bernstein-Nahar and Elizabeth Nahar, and Cheryl and Craig Ross; along with eight grandchildren: Jeremy, Nathaniel, Hannah, Hadas, Sam Nathan, Alana and Julian.
The funeral was held at The Pavilion at Ohev Shalom Cemetery with Rabbi David Kay officiating. The family requests that donations be made to charity in Stuart’s memory.
Services entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 640 Lee Road, Orlando 32810.
