Obituary of Gerald Springberg
Jerry Springberg, a Lake Havasu City, Arizona pioneer and currently of Las Vegas, Nevada, passed away peacefully February 3, 2023 at the age of 89. He is survived by his sister Lorraine Cohen, sons Larry (Jodi) David (Carol) and Brian (Sarra) and seven grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife of 53 years Nancy Springberg, his sister Phyllis Springberg and parents Sol Springberg and Gertrude Springberg (Gomberg).
Jerry was born in Toronto, Canada on December 19, 1933 when his parents emigrated from Russia to escape the Pogroms, moving to New York soon after. After serving in Korea in the US Army and graduating with a degree in business from New York University, Jerry eventually took over his father’s drycleaning business and built it into five locations. Looking for a better quality of life, he sold the stores and in 1973 he and his wife, Nancy, moved their three boys to Lake Havasu City. There, Jerry founded Investment Insurance Designers which eventually became Springberg McAndrew Financial. Jerry was the first Certified Financial Planner in Mohave County, a member of the Optimists, founding member of Temple Beth Shalom, member of the Republican Men’s Club, Toast Masters and a passionate Rotarian.
Jerry had an unrivaled work ethic and achieved numerous professional accolades in the life insurance industry including Top of the Table seven times, which is limited to the top .5% of Life Insurance professionals in the world. Jerry also had a love for life and learning new things including a lifelong passion for tennis, sailing and dancing. Later in life Jerry bought a Sea-Doo, took piano and singing lessons and performed for his retirement community. He was a truly unique individual who marched to his own beat and was successful, respected and loved for it.
