Bert died Nov.14, 2016, from natural causes in a retirement community in Florida.

He joined our class from Atlantic City (N.J.) High School. At Princeton, Bert was an English major and ate his meals in Dial Lodge, where he was active in many inter-club athletic activities. In his senior year he roomed with many club mates in 1901 Hall.

In August 1958 he married Joan Mushalansky, a union that produced three children. The marriage ended in divorce in 1981.

He earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pa. Following a two-year tour of duty in the Air Force, Bert began his residency in ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. In the fall of 1968, he began his practice in ophthalmology in Atlantic City, N.J. In 1996, he married Leslie Lipshultz, and after he practiced for 40 years they retired to Jupiter, Fla.

Leslie died in 2016, but Bert is survived by his daughters, Tracey Motolanez and Alysia Howard; son Bert Estlow; three grandchildren, Alexander Motolanez, Emily Howard, and Lainie Estlow; and stepdaughter Megan Lipshultz. The class extends condolences to them all.
