HARRY ADELSHEIMER: Age 85, of Pittsburgh, PA. On May 20, 2021 we lost our beloved Papa. He was the rock of our family and taught us that the most important values in life are love, laughter, and family.
He will be missed most by his sons Gregg Adelsheimer (Pamela Aranson Adelsheimer), Marc Adelsheimer (Jamie Stern) and daughter, Lynne Adelsheimer Goldstein along with his eight loving grandchildren; Andrew (Amanda) Adelsheimer, Jeremy Adelsheimer, Eric Adelsheimer, Hannah Adelsheimer, Rachel Adelsheimer, Jacob Adelsheimer, Alex Goldstein, and Sara Goldstein. He is also survived by his brother Stanley Adelsheimer.
He was born in Schermbeck, Germany to Henny and Arthur Adelsheimer. His family fled from Germany and created an incredible life in Pittsburgh. Graduating from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in business, he then began his career in the retail world as a buyer for Kaufman’s Department Store. He was very proud of Lintons, the women’s clothing store he owned and operated in Squirrel Hill for over 40 years. Here he devoted his time and love as he outfitted many women in the city and retained his loyal employees for years. He was a very influential leader in the Squirrel Hill business community.
His passion for golf was not only based on the sport but the quality of time he got to spend with his buddies. He was an active member of Westmoreland Country Club as well as Boca West Country Club in Florida. He loved his annual golf outing with his 7 closest friends as well as a few special trips he enjoyed with his sons. His warm personality made everyone around him feel welcome.
He lost the love of his life, Carol, our Muggy, just one year ago. During their 61 years of marriage, they had an amazing life together. Side by side, they truly had a story book romance for the ages.
Their lives revolved around raising their three children and later in life, their focus became spending time with their eight grandchildren. Annual family vacations to Beach Haven, NJ as well as traveling with their children and grandchildren meant the world to them. Harry always instilled in every one of his family members the importance of togetherness. He was the ultimate patriarch to all. His family is defined by his legacy, and he will truly be missed by everyone that knew and loved him.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh.
Graveside Service and Interment will be held on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at 11 AM at Homewood Cemetery, Star of David Section.
