Harris Cal Dinerman, 73, of Savannah, died Thursday evening, October 8, 2020, at his home.

Born in Savannah, Georgia, he was a son of the late David Dinerman and the late Shirley Marcus Dinerman. Harris was of the Jewish faith. He was a United States Air Force veteran.

Humorous, funny, and a kind heart, he wanted to invite everybody into his world of the 1950’s – a time that Harris enjoyed. The wonder of sci-fi and fantasy science fiction was the corner stone of his being.

Harris had an amazing eye and idea of how to make films. He had worked on some major movie productions such as the Big Chill and others. A major filmmaker took his idea of werewolves walking erect and produced one of the first movies to do so.

Hopefully there will be a place in Heaven with the best screen and viewing position so Harris can be at peace watching his favorite pictures.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Lisa Dinerman.

Survivors include his brother, Craig M. Dinerman and his partner, Paul Downing, Jr.

The funeral service will be held at 3 o’clock Sunday afternoon, October 18, 2020, at the graveside, Bonaventure Cemetery, conducted by Rabbi Robert W. Haas.

Remembrances:  Congregation Bnai Brith Jacob – 5444 Abercorn Street, Savannah, Georgia 31405 or Congregation Mickve Israel – Post Office Box 816, Savannah, Georgia 31402-0816.

    We’ll always remember working with him at Davy’s Super Market on Bull St in the early 1960’s. A very gentle and kind guy.

    Harris and I worked the truck lanes at the GPA in Garden City for years until he retired. His always-on sense of humor made the work fun. He’d never been to Disneyworld and I offered to be his guide. ..even offered to buy the tickets and pay for gas. I still couldn’t talk him into it. I heard he had a big hi-der TV with a hi-fi audio system…yet preferred to enjoy it watching black & white movies from the ’40’s and ’50’s. Like Sinatra, Harris did it his way. One of a kind. I’m proud to have called him friend.
