In Memoriam: Rudi Tischer and Harvey Cherner

WANADA is sad to report the passing of two longtime members of the WANADA family – dealers Paul “Rudi” Tischer and Harvey Cherner.

Tischer was the founder of Tischer Acura and Nissan in Laurel (now Laurel Acura and Ourisman Nissan, respectively) and Tischer Autopark in Silver Spring, and passed away earlier this month at the age of 98. Cherner was formerly the co-owner of Cherner Automotive Group (now Cherner Development Group) passed away last week at the age of 87.

Tischer is survived by his four children, seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. Contributions to his memory can go to Epiphany Lutheran Church in Burtonsville.

Cherner is survived by his wife Arlene, his two children, his sister, and his seven grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Washington Hebrew Congregation.
