Morton Irvin Shear

Morton I. Shear, 90, died February 6, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was preceded in death by his beloved Bernice (née Stern) and is survived by his children Lynne Clamage, Donna Shear (Joseph Weber), and Alex Shear; grandchildren Jessica Shaham, David Clamage, Rebecca Weber, Daniel Weber, Abigail Weber, and Stephanie Shear; and great-grandchildren Avery Shaham, Shai Shaham, Gil Shaham, Yair Shaham, Ezra Carver, Eden Carver, Zoë Weber, Ari Weber, and Yara Tamir-Weber.

 

A retired pharmacist, Mort was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. He met Bernice when she was 14 years old and he was 16, and they were married 5 years later. Although they were native Baltimoreans, they came to love Las Vegas, where they lived for more than three decades. Mort was a masterful bowler, a keen card player, and a life-long Baltimore sports fan. His family was everything to him; while he took great pride and joy in his children and grandchildren, he was most devoted to his wife “Berni.”

 

Services will be graveside at Bunkers Memory Gardens Memorial Park on Wednesday, February 9 at 10:00am.
