WENKERT, ALBERT: On Sunday, January 27, 2019; Al Wenkert passed away after a lengthy illness. He was the husband of 69 years to Rita (Pearlstein) Wenkert.  Beloved father to Harry Wenkert (Barbara Ginsburg) and Terri Sweet (Sy). Brother of the late Ruth Golden and grandfather to Daniel Sweet and Beth Sweet. He was a much loved and admired uncle to several nieces and nephews. Al was a most likable and friendly individual who spent 30 plus years with his Primanti Brothers breakfast club enjoying the company of his friends, Joe, Kenny, Toni and the late Rick. His favorite pastime was watching his beloved Pittsburgh sports teams, especially the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team. Al lived a long 92 years of life, which the family attributes to his excellent medical team of Dr. Gary Lemoncelli, Dr. Alan Steckel, Dr. Saul Silver and Dr. Jing-Zhou Hou. The family wishes to acknowledge, with much appreciation, the care of Angie and Shelly at Hillman Center and to Barb, Bobbie and Emilie of Sivitz Jewish Hospice.
