Martin Buddy Bernstein, 74, passed away in Delray Beach, FL, on March 5, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Sheryl (Alhadeff Crane), his son Eric Crane (Karen) of Davis, CA, daughter Lisa Crane Wacks (Michael) of Oradell, NJ, and sister-in-law Joy Massin of Boynton Beach, FL. He loved being “Papa Buddy” to granddaughters Molly and Bailey and grandson Henry; and he was beloved by nephews Casey and Cody Massin. He is preceded in death by his parents Irving and Ida Bernstein, brother Sam Bernstein, sister Shirley Bernstein Moses, and devoted mother-in-law Betty Alhadeff.

Buddy was born at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL on February 28, 1946. He graduated from Miami Senior High School in 1964. He received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Tampa in 1969. He was the consummate salesman, selling everything from auto warranties to computer supplies to cemetery property. With Sheryl, he owned All Business Computer Supply from the mid-1980s through 2009. More important to Buddy than his business pursuits, he mentored dozens of people struggling to improve their life and health. A friend to all, rarely has any man been given a more fitting name. His family and friends will miss his irreverent humor, expert listening, and generous heart. He loved walking through Greentree Villas and passing the time with friends by the clubhouse pool, where he was fondly known as “The Mayor of Phase 6.” In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in Buddy’s name to the Democratic National Committee at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/web-donate or the charity of your choice.

I’ve known Buddy for about 48 years. From the moment I met him, I knew he was a special man and someone who could fill the lives of Sheryl, Eric and Lisa with unending joy, love, devotion, and so many more positive things.
He had a great sense of humor, was very smart and was someone you’d want as a friend forever.
I loved talking with him to hear his input and suggestions. And sometimes I’d agree and sometimes not.
My husband, Stan, loved being with both Sheryl and Buddy. We always had great times.
Watching Buddy as not only a dedicated husband who adored his wife, a devoted father, and an incredible grandfather, was a very loving experience.
I loved Buddy like he was part of my family, and I will miss him very much.

I don’t have a memory that doesn’t make me think of my father or a conversation we had about whatever the topic is or the memory itself. I will miss him terribly. He was the best. My mother and my entire family and all our friends are better for having had him in our lives. Rest peacefully Daddy.
