He was a generous philanthropist who devoted his time and finances to religion, the Or Chadash Girls school in Israel, and the jewelry industry, his family said.

As a World War II, Adwar flew over 60 combat missions in the Pacific Theatre as a tail gunner and a bombardier on a B17 Flying Fortress, his family noted.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
