Sherman Grancell was one of the founders of the law firm that I worked at for 12 years, beginning as a legal secretary in college back in 1985. Sherman and his wife Sylvia, were among the nicest people I have ever met. His son Norin was my boss for many years. He was already retired when I started working in the Inglewood office in 1987, but he still had an office and came in every few weeks. I never knew how active he was, and still is, at UCLA. He celebrated his 100th birthday party at UCLA on Sunday. I say file under Bdays over 90, but actually, 2 people I know are now 100 years old.
