Barry “Bud” Bertram passed away May 3, 2011, in Oakland, Calif. He was 98.

“Barry and his wife Manya shared a great joy and pride in their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren,” the family said. “We meant everything to him, and we will miss his lovely sense of humor and affection for us.”

Mr.  Bertram was born Oct. 25, 1912, in Winnipeg, Canada, and moved with his parents and two sisters to California at the age of 11.

At UCLA, he pursued his life-long love of music and served as band manager, transforming a small, informal group of musicians into the renowned Bruin Marching Band.

Following his graduation, Mr. Bertram joined the Department of Insurance for the State of Colorado, where he was employed until his retirement.

Right after college he met Manya, a Denver native.

They married two years later and lived in the Los Angeles area for 65 years and in the San Francisco Bay Area for another eight years.

Mr. Bertram played the trombone, piano and organ, and enjoyed going to concerts.

He is survived by his wife Manya Bertram; son Neal (Ann) Bertram and daughter Carel (Fred Donner) Bertram; grandchildren Seth Bertram, Alanya Snyder (Michael Jones) and Rumeli Snyder (Cyrus Comiskey); and great-grandchildren Selim and Naveed Jones and Sandriz Comiskey.
