Bradley Kenneth Schwarz, 86, was a third generation San Franciscan. He passed away in Costa Mesa from a heart attack just two weeks after the death of his wife Grace. He practiced law in Costa Mesa for 55 years. Brad attended Galileo High School and graduated from the University of California (Berkeley), then signed up for the Marine Corps in 1941. He married Lieutenant Grace Finley on September 10, 1943. He fought in the South Pacific and North Korea, then served as a reserve intelligence officer until he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1978. He had completed graduate studies in Japanese language and culture at Yale University and later earned his law degree at Hastings, in San Francisco. In Costa Mesa, Brad served on the school board and joined the American Legion and the Lions Club, where he was twice elected president. He also taught business law classes at Orange Coast College. He and Grace were avid dancers and Brad jogged daily for thirty years. Brad is survived by sons, Dr. Ken Schwarz, Corona del Mar, and Alan Schwarz, Costa Mesa; daughters, Karen Stouffer, Irvine, Jan McGirk, Jerusalem, and Jody Young, Newport Beach, plus eight grandchildren, and two great-grandsons. A double funeral service took place on January 12, 2007 at the Riverside National Cemetery. Bradley Schwarz was buried alongside Grace, his wife of nearly 64 years. This soft-spoken intellectual, as deft with words as with weapons, will be missed by all. (Published in the Orange County Register)
