July 30, 1932 ~ December 21, 2014
William (Bill) Bernstein passed away on December 21, 2014 in Torrance, CA, surrounded by his family.
Bill was born July 30, 1932 in Los Angeles, and was a Torrance resident for the past 47 years, beginning in 1967, when he started working for Bullock's in the newly built Del Amo Mall. He continued to work in various retail and wholesale positions until he retired in 1995.
