Stanley E. Perlmeter passed away on Dec. 18. Services were held at Temple Israel of Greater Miami, 137 NE 19th St, Miami FL.

He was preceded in death by his wife Janet Shapiro Perlmeter.

He is survived by his wife, Ronnie Koenigsberg Perlmeter; son, Jeff Perlmeter, sons and daughters-in-law, Michael and Rosemary Perlmeter and Rex Perlmeter and Rachel Hertzman; grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was a remarkable husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son and brother, Stan lived his life with zest and determination. A successful businessman, hailed by Warren Buffett as one of the SuperInvestors, he was General Partner of Perlmeter Investments, Ltd., from the time of its founding in 1965 to the day of his death. A graduate of the University of Michigan (1947) who served in the US Navy in the post-war years, he settled with his beloved, late wife, Janet Shapiro Perlmeter, in Omaha. He was an admired community leader, particularly as president of Temple Israel from 1974-76. He was an avid golfer and tennis player, continuing both activities well into his 80s. He loved to party and travel with dear friends and family there and in Miami, where he and Jan moved in 1980. When we lost Jan in 2008, Stan had the greatest of blessings in finding love again with Ronnie Koenigsberg Perlmeter, whom he wed in 2009 and with whom he enjoyed joyous, golden years, and basked in the additional family of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild.
