Virginia Beach—Malcolm Wasserman, 82, passed away surrounded by his family at his home in Virginia Beach on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014.
Malcolm lived a long and extraordinary life, facing the adversity of his generation with a tenacity and grit that became his trademark style throughout his many years. Serving in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and eventually settling in Norfolk, he married Sheila Sackstein, and over the course of 50 sensational years traveled the world, had adventures and with ceaseless entrepreneurial spirit, left a business legacy throughout East Main Street and Little Creek Road.
He is survived by his children, Laurie and Bryan Shroder, Marcie Friedman and David Friedman and Danny Wasserman, and his five grandchildren, Landon and his wife Sarah, Lee, Jordan, Chase and Travis, who, along with his companion, Bobbie Krampf, were with him at the time of his passing.
A graveside funeral service was conducted in Forest Lawn Cemetery with Rabbi Rosalin Mandelberg and Cantor Wally Schachat-Briskin officiating.
