Following the untimely death of Dr. Lester "Les" Silverman, a well-known Manhattan Beach optometrist who was widely active in civic causes, a memorial service has been planned for Wednesday, January 31.

The memorial will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to a YouCaring fund to help defray funeral costs.

Silverman, 64, drowned while on vacation with his brother and sister. He was the owner of Look! Optometry in Downtown Manhattan Beach at the Metlox Plaza. A graduate of the Leadership Manhattan Beach program, he had served on several city commissions. He was also active in the Manhattan Beach Rotary, the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business and Professionals Association, the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation (MBEF), and the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce.

He was a graduate of the State University of New York, New Paltz, and the UC Berkeley School of Optometry. He is survived by his wife, Angela, and two children.
