The editor of the Broken Wand in the IBM’s The Linking Ring would like to pay tribute Larry Silverman. If you know any information about him to include in the obituary (occupation, interest in magic, accomplishments, etc.), please send them to Dennis Schick at crylds [at] att [dot] net.
From the John Giordmaine tribute site:
We noted, with sadness, the passing of Larry Silverman on February 12th, 2015. He was 85. Former President of the long defunct Society of Canadian Magicians, Larry encouraged this site by sharing his rare video tape of the CBC TV "Telescope" tribute to Johnny; as well as allowing me to unearth back issues boxed up in his basement of the SCM's "Levitator" with key articles about Johnny. Our condolences to his family.
Peacefully in his 85th year and in the presence of his family on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at North York General Hospital. Beloved husband of the late Myrna Silverman (Greenberg) and best friend and companion of Betty Shannon. Loving father and father-in-law to Carol and Lori and David. Devoted and much adored grandfather to Jayme, Cory and Jesse. -
With thanks to The Magic Demon for letting me know.
