WILLIAM "BILL" LEMER William "Bill" A. Lemer of Chevy Chase, Md. passed away peacefully in his sleep Tuesday, December 31, 2019. Born in Patterson, N.J., January 24, 1941, to Evelyn and Moe Lemer; Bill was a proud transplanted Washingtonian. He moved to the city the day after he graduated high school to begin college at American University. A successful entrepreneur, Bill started Lemer Advertising (which became one of the largest agencies in Washington, DC), owned a local radio station, launched multiple retail ventures and was also involved in real estate development. Most importantly, Bill will be remembered for his love of life, sense of humor, gentle and kind ways and, of course, his times spent at the beach with his family and friends. Beloved husband of Miriam "Mickey" Lemer; devoted father of Eric (Sabrina), Keith (Stephanie) and Jodi Moraru (Eldad); cherished "PopPop" to Alexandra and Vanessa Lemer, Jordyn, Lauren and Austin Lemer and Eli and Talia Moraru; loving brother of Gary Lemer (Mary Ann); and brother-in-law of Wilma and Stuart Bernstein and Suellen and the late Melvyn Estrin; and caring uncle to his nieces, nephews and their children. Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Monday, January 6 at Washington Hebrew Congregation, 3935 Macomb St. NW, Washington, DC 20016 (live streaming available at https://www.whctemple.org/Worship/stream ing) with interment to follow at King David Memorial Gardens in Falls Church, VA. Family will be receiving friends and observing Shiva, Monday, January 6 following services (minyan at 7 p.m.) and Tuesday January 7 at 3 p.m. (minyan at 7 p.m.) at the residence of Keith and Stephanie Lemer. As Bill was always a kid at heart, donations can be made to Children's National Hospital Foundation (in honor of William Lemer; Attn: Shelby Tudor, 801 Roeder Road, Suite 650, Silver Spring, MD 20910; studor@childrens national.org).

Dearest Mickey....Thank goodness for social media or our one dinner at a Bethesda Italian restaurant 50 years ago and meeting every now and then on the Rio Grande Trail in Aspen would sadly would be the only memories I have of being with you both.. I watched your beautiful family expand on Facebook and I believe Eric and my daughter Abbie have some history as a brief legacy. Your dear lifetime friends, children and grandchilren will no doubt sustain you on your "next" journey. Much love and deepest sympathies xxx&oooo's Ricky and Cobbie
