Boris Wolper, commercial real estate broker, dies

Boris Wolper of Woodside, a member of the Woodside Planning Commission for 13 years, died July 22 at the age of 89.

Born in San Francisco, Mr. Wolper graduated from Sequoia High School. He began college at the University of California at Berkeley, attended Ohio State University while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, and earned bachelor's and MBA degrees from Stanford University.

For nearly 60 years, he was a commercial and industrial real estate broker.

He and his wife, Marilyn, attended a wide variety of sporting and cultural events, said family members. He attended every Stanford-Cal Big Game from 1942 to 2011, skied and played tennis for many years, and enjoyed annual trips to the Sierras with hiking buddies, they said. A lover of good food and wine, he was always eager to try new restaurants and recipes.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Marilyn; daughters Julie Brenner and Andrea Wolper; sister Malkah Carothers; and two grandchildren.

Donations in Mr. Wolper's name may be made to Music@Menlo, the Hebrew Free Loan Society, or Pathways Hospice Foundation.
