Baruch Dayan HaEmet – David Shucker z”l

David Shucker, brother of Mark (Carol) Shucker, passed away at the beginning of the week in Berkeley, California at 67 years old.  He will be buried here in Boulder and COVID restrictions and the timing of the holidays have delayed the funeral until noon on Sunday.  It will be a small, private, graveside funeral.  David was a kind and generous absent minded professor.

There will be one ZOOM shiva gathering at 5:00 pm on Sunday. Join Zoom Meeting

Anyone wishing to give tzedakah in David’s memory is invited to direct it to the ACLU or charity of your choice.

David’s brother Mark is the only direct mourner and we wish him, along with Carol and their family, long life, strength and comfort. Shalom al nishmat David Shmuel ben Shamai v’Rachel. May David’s soul be at peace.
