Stanley J. Reisman, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, of Forest Hills, formerly of Churchill, passed away at the age of 92 on January 17, 2019. Born in Pittsburgh in 1926, he spent most of his boyhood in Johnstown, PA. He served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1944 to 1946, then earned a degree in electrical engineering from Penn State University-State College. Returning to Pittsburgh after marrying Joan Miller, the love of his life, he went to work for Westinghouse. Eventually, after four years of night classes at Duquesne University School of Law, he earned his law degree, and he successfully practiced law into his mid-80s. He found joy in traveling with Joan the world over, and in riding his bicycle on the streets of Pittsburgh. He was generous with his time and philanthropy to those in need. He is survived by his children Marc Reisman, Jan Steinle, Carole Brecht and Laurie McKivigan, his grandchildren, Max Reisman, Bud Steinle, Rachel Stachokus, Allison Benson, Thomas Brecht, Katie DiMaria, James Brecht and Steven Brecht, and his great-grandchildren Todd Steinle, Asher Benson and Nolan Stachokus. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Joan and his sister Lois Reisman. A memorial service and gathering will be held on February 17, 12:30 - 2:30 PM at Rodef Shalom Congregation, 4905 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Contributions in Stanley's name may be made to the United Jewish Federation. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 412-621-8282, family owned and operated www.schugar.com
