Walter Harvey Abraham, 94, a lifelong resident of San Rafael, died February 5, 2002 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. His unexpected passing was the result of a severe head injury suffered in a fall earlier that day. He died at the Kona Community Hospital. Mr Abraham was born in San Francisco on Christmas Day, 1907, and was a distinguished citizen of Marin County where he resided with his wife of 59 years Carol Schmidt Abraham, who preceded him in death. He was a retired executive of Pacific Gas and Electric Company and a member of the San Francisco Engineers Club. He was an enthusiastic golfer and still played 18 holes each week. An avid reader, Mr. Abraham also loved gardening and was a competitive domino player. At age 90 he moved to Hawaii to live with his daughter Carla and her husband Gary in Kailua-Kona where he enjoyed watching the sun set over the Pacific every evening. Mr. Abraham lived life to the fullest. He will be remembered by his family and many friends for being a good husband, loving father and grandfather, faithful friend, and the ultimate gentleman. Mr. Abraham is survived by a daughter, Carla Summers (Gary) of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; sister Florence Abraham of San Rafael; grandchildren Christy Summers, Rob Bradford and Brent Bradford. He was preceded in death by sister Ethel Rodgers, daughter Anita Bradford and grandson Scott Summers. A private Memorial Service will be held in Kona.
