April 9, 1921 – Sept. 29, 1912
Dr. Merwin S. Adler, a former Kenmore podiatrist, died Saturday in his Lake Mary, Fla., home after a long illness. He was 91.
Dr. Adler was born in Buffalo and graduated from Fosdick-Masten Park High School.
He earned a doctorate from the New York School of Podiatric Medicine.
Dr. Adler served in the U.S. Army Air Forces as a bombardier on a B-24 bomber, logging 51 missions in the Pacific at the end of World War II.
His experience in war led him to become a pacifist and to work toward world peace.
The longtime Amherst resident was self-employed for 32 years before moving to New Rochelle, where he practiced until 1983.
He was a longtime member of the Jewish Community Center, Temple Beth El and the Buffalo Tennis Center.
Dr. Adler was also a Buffalo Bills fan who, with his son Jeffrey, had been a season-ticket holder since the team’s first few years.
Survivors include his wife of 62 years, the former Florence Berger; a daughter, Wendy; two sons, Jeffrey and Marshall; a sister, Ruth; and two brothers, Leonard and Sanford.
